The Super Bowl is one of the most-watched events on television. Aside from the game itself, the spectacle is famous for its traditional funny commercials and the halftime show. The upcoming Super Bowl LVI has a long list of superstars lined up for its halftime show, and it is guaranteed to be an excellent performance. The stars that will be performing during the halftime show on Feb. 13, 2022, include Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Dr. Dre, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar. 

Collectively, these five artists have 43 Grammy awards and have been famous in the music industry for decades. According to, “The music superstars, joined together for the first time, will take the stage for the 12-minute spectacle…”
