Halftime show Super Bowl LVI 2022 live online

This Sunday’s Super Bowl LVI halftime show includes five all-star rap/R&B artists who will take the SoFi Stadium by storm during the Rams vs. Bengals game.

Rap legend Dr. Dre will lead the performance with a collection of his longtime collaborators joining him on stage. Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar have a great set prepared for fans. These West Coast rap legends will surely surprise us.

The group have a combined 43 Grammys and 19 No.1 Billboard albums to their name. This is the first time that so many Grammy winners are performing together at half-time. But while the exciting show is highly expected by millions around the world, it lasts for a fairly short time, 12-15 minutes.

Let’s take a look at the top song picks at Super Bowl 56 halftime show:

Dr. Dre feat. Snoop Dogg - "Still D.R.E."

One of the biggest hits from 1999, and the song we all know will be played on Sunday night, is Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg’s anthem “Still D.R.E.” The opening piano chords have been the centerpiece of almost every halftime ad and have just been iconic in the world of hip hop. Just imagine the halftime show kicking off with that beginning…

Snoop Dogg - "Drop it like it’s hot"

The biggest hit of Snoop’s second decade is a must in SBLVI. Not only is it his only Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit as a lead artist, and one of his most famous ones, but it’s also one of those songs where you can just sing along the “hot” chorus without having to know the rest of the lyrics. We might even see Pharrell Williams making a quick appearance. 

Eminem- "The Real Slim Shady"

Re-thinking the entrance song now as this one plays in the background... This iconic and most-remembered Eminem track that put the genius rapper on the map is inevitable to be played on Sunday, especially while it refers to what “Dr. Dre said”. I can imagine Dr. Dre actually rapping those words out as Eminem holds his breath for a few minutes.

Eminem- "Lose Yourself

And now, speaking of “opportunities that come once in a lifetime”, Sunday is the right night for it. And no doubt the most-watched sporting event in the country will miss the most famous hype song of the 21st century. Plus there is just no way Eminem’s Mom’s Spaghetti concession booth will be at the SoFi Stadium without the song behind it.

Mary J. Blige - “Family Affair”

As the only R&B artist scheduled to perform, we’re most likely getting a good cup of Mary J. Blige’s best song, “Family Affair '' because it would just be a let down if we don’t hear it. The huge hit released in 2001 was of course produced by the one and only Dr. Dre, just one more reason to live it up at SoFi.

Kendrick Lamar - “Humble”

There is no better song for Kendrick Lamar to perform on Sunday than his 2017 hit “Humble” that’s been featured heavily in promos for the Super Bowl halftime performance. It’s hard to imagine any rap/hip-hop or even commercial music fan who does not know, or haven't heard, this song.

Kendrick Lamar feat. Mary J. Blige - “All the Stars”

For all the “King Kunta” and “Backstreet Freestyle” fans, we know those Lamar tracks would lift a stadium upside down. But, this time the 34-year-old rapper is not alone on stage, and when the Queen of hip-hop soul is around, the right choices must be made. This song featuring SZA is the perfect opportunity for the two artists to mix their two incredibly powerful styles.

2pac ft. Dr. Dre- California Love

There’s just no better way to end a Dr. Dre Super Bowl than with the main man welcoming everybody to the wild, wild west… The only Hot 100 No.1 to refer to Inglewood by name is literally the most logical song ever made for a Super Bowl that’s gathering 5 artists who all have ties to LA.

The halftime show will likely start a little after 8 p.m. ET, depending on how the first half of the Los Angeles Rams vs Cincinnati Bengals game goes. The game kicks off at 6:30 p.m. ET.

Who is singing the national anthem?

Since we’re talking music, let’s do Mickey Guyton justice, as she is the country music star scheduled to sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” on Sunday, while R&B singer Jhené Aiko will perform “America the Beautiful.”
