Slim Shady is going to the Super Bowl.
Eminem is set to perform for the Super Bowl at halftime next year with other singers. The N.F.L. and Pepsi announced that on Thursday.
There is a big football game played every year. It happened on Feb. 4, 2018. This year’s halftime show was seen by 96.4 million people on T.V., according to Nielsen data. The Super Bowl is very important. It will happen on Feb. 13, 2022, at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles. There will be many stars like Dre, Snoop, and Kendrick there too!
It’s going to be a new halftime show with hip-hop music. Rappers have performed before — Travis Scott and Big Boi, and Missy Elliott. In 2012, Madonna performed in Brooklyn with Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., but no rapper has ever headlined the halftime show before. The Black Eyed Peas were the closest pop-rap group to accomplish it in 2011.
It will be the first time for all of these people to perform in a Super Bowl. Except for one person. That person has already performed in the 2001 halftime show with *NSYNC, Aerosmith, Britney Spears, and Nelly. That same person also performed at Super Bowl XXXVI with Marc Anthony and the Boston P
The N.F.L. has partnered with Jay-Z’s company to produce the halftime show. Jennifer Lopez and Shakira performed at halftime in 2020.
Jay-Z said, “This is history in the making.” He also said, “The opportunity to perform at the Super Bowl Halftime show will be one of the biggest thrills of my career.”
Eminem’s announcement came at a busy time in his life. He opened a new restaurant, Mom’s Spaghetti. He surprised fans by coming out to serve them pasta there.
On Thursday, he was on a new song called “Last One Standing.” The song is from the “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” soundtrack. He sings with Skylar Grey, and Polo G. Mozzy is also in it.
