The official trailer for the Super Bowl halftime show 2022 has been released, and we have to say we’re extremely hyped up.
It’s really quite unlike anything we’ve seen before!
Firstly, there’s never been a nearly four-minute trailer for the Super Bowl halftime Show before, and, secondly, the visuals are completely off the charts.
In October 2021, it was announced that Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J Blige and Kendrick Lamar would all perform at the annual sporting event, which will be held a the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, California, on February 13.
The wild trailer, created by Straight Outta Compton and The Fate of the Furious director F. Gary Gray, opens with a virtual chess game, which takes place in an animated cityscape.
All five artists appear in the slick clip as they make their way to the SoFi Stadium, with each of them receiving a text message on their phone.

Eminem is the first to appear in the trailer, followed by Snoop Dogg in his car, Mary taking part in a photoshoot, Kendrick writing some lyrics on some paper, and finally, Dre taking a stroll on the beach.
In the concluding scene, the musicians can be seen walking together, about to collaborate for what is likely to be one of the most iconic hip-hop gigs of all time.
According to the announcement, made in September last year, the show will be ’12 minutes of unforgettable greatness’ and we believe it’ll be exactly that.
Dr Dre said: ‘The opportunity to perform at the Super Bowl Halftime show, and to do it in my own backyard, will be one of the biggest thrills of my career.

‘I’m grateful to Jay-Z, Roc Nation, the NFL, and Pepsi as well as Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar for joining me in what will be an unforgettable cultural moment.’
The five artists join a line of celebrated musicians who have played the Super Bowl halftime slot in the past.
These include Beyonce, Madonna, Coldplay, Katy Perry, The Weeknd, Michael Jackson and Shakira.
Last year, The Weeknd held the spot, which took place at Raymond James Stadium, in Tampa, Florida.
The Super Bowl halftime show has been a fixture of the sporting event since its inception.
Prior to the 1990s, the show included university marching bands, but, from 1991, it began featuring pop music acts.
