Look, thehalf-time show always features superstars at some level, but this year’s show took things to the stratosphere. The Voltron of half-time shows if you will.
Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar and Dr. Dre all performed at at the Super Bowl half-time show — a production so ridiculous stacked it warranted its own, equally ridiculous trailer. They even brought 50 Cent as a surprise, which absolutely ruled.
Anyway, the show itself? It was a pitch perfect exercise in nostalgia. Given the Super Bowl took place in California, at the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles to be precise, it made sense to round up the old gang and play a West Coast rap inspired show. As a 40 year old man I was the exact perfect demographic for this show and I loved it.
You can and should rewatch it here.
People were losing it as they rightly should have.
