This Sunday the Super Bowl is played, the popular final of the championship of the National Football League (NFL in English) of the United States. The Cincinnati Bengals (the winners of the American Conference) and the Los Angeles Rams (the winners of the National Conference) play the final in its 56th edition, which is broadcast in Spain through Movistar +. The match starts at 00:30 (at dawn from Sunday to Monday) and can be followed on the #Vamos and Movistar Deportes channels.
Like every year, apart from the match and who will sing the US national anthem, one of the things that generates the most expectation is the halftime performance. Even people who don’t follow the NFL are watching the timeout show. The intermission show of the final began in the 70s with local musicians and has been evolving and after the success of Michael Jackson’s performance in 1994, every year a great band or a popular singer takes on the task of surprising the audience from all over the planet.
cast of rappers
Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar will liven up the Super Bowl intermission
Last year, The Weeknd had the difficult role of performing in a stadium with 30% capacity due to the restrictions of Covid 19 and, despite the fact that the singer invested 7 million euros in his performance to make it as spectacular as possible, ended for not fully convincing viewers. Well, apart from the covid, he acted in the shadow of Jennifer López and Shakira, who offered an amazing show in February 2020.
This year it is the turn of five great names of American rap who will sing live at the SoFi stadium in Inglewood: Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar will be in charge of enlivening the intermission of the final in one of the biggest stages in the world.
The four rappers will be joined by R&B singer Mary J. Blige. Around 02:00 a.m. Spanish time, these artists will take to the stadium stage, becoming one of the best casts in Super Bowl history. Together they have a total of 43 Grammys and 21 number 1 albums on the prestigious Billboard list. But who is each of the artists?
