An event within an event, the Super Bowl halftime show might float your boat even if the sporting action doesn’t do it for you.
Super Bowl LVI will see the Cincinnati Bengals face the Los Angeles Rams in a fierce battle for the Vince Lombardi Trophy on Sunday, February 12 but for some the midway extravaganza is what it’s really all about.
WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS!
You’ll have to stay up late to watch the halftime show, though, as Super Bowl LVI doesn’t kick off until 11:30pm. The first half is expected to last the best part of 90 minutes so the non-sporting fun is unlikely to begin until at least 1am.
The Super Bowl halftime show has provided some memorable moments over the years, who can forget Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake’s performance in 2004… It’s difficult to imagine a similar idea being adopted on this side of the pond, however. Just imagine the uproar if the FA Cup final was paused for half an hour to let Gary Barlow belt out a few tunes on the Wembley pitch.
There’ll be none of that Barlow-esque nonsense at the Super Bowl LVI halftime show as rap legends Dr Dre, Snoop Dog and Eminem take centre stage alongside R&B icon Mary J Blige and current hip-hop star Kendrick Lamar. As well as the all-star cast, Sean Forbes and Warren Snipe will interpret the performance in American Sign Language for deaf viewers.
Oh, there’s also the small matter of the national anthem before kick off. We know the Americans love a rousing rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner at any given opportunity and it’ll be sung on the field by country music artist Mickey Guyton this year.
