What to know about the halftime show and National Anthem performance at Super Bowl 2022, which will broadcast from Los Angeles on Feb. 13.
Football’s biggest Sunday of the year is fast approaching: Super Bowl LVI. On Feb. 13, 2022, two teams will square off at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles and vie for the coveted Vince Lombardi Trophy — and, not to mention, an agreeable sum of $150,000 per player on the winning team. It’s a big day for football enthusiasts, indeed, but also for music fanatics. Each year, the biggest names in music are tapped to perform during the halftime show, making the occasion all the more lively.
At the Super Bowl at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida last year, The Weeknd scored the gig, bringing spectators to their feet before the Tampa Bay Buccaneers ultimately defeated the Kansas City Chiefs. So, who will be performing at the halftime show in 2022? Below is everything to know about the show and the National Anthem, which was sung by Jazmine Sullivan and Eric Church last year.

Like the game itself, the halftime show will take place at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, a city in Los Angeles.

Blige and Kendrick Lamar will prove to be an epic, unforgettable celebration of the impact hip hop has today.”
