Following presentations of the City of Angels by Big Boy, George Lopez, Lauren London, Drew Barrymore, Black Eyed Peas, and more, the event's 'Star Spangled' performances began just before kick-off. And then, the main event... WATCH NOW!

With the score locked at 13-10 with L.A. in the lead, the Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show kicked off with Dre and Snoop’s classics “The Next Episode,” into "California Love" backed by a live band on a massive stage. This year’s super setlist also included a surprise visit from 50 Cent to perform his hit “In Da Club." Mary J. then graced the stage with her hits "Family Affair" and "No More Drama."

Kendrick Lamar arrived along with an army on "Dre Day," with his hits "m.A.A.d City" and "Alright." That segued into Eminem taking the stage for "Forgot About Dre," and a knee at the end of his smash "Lose Yourself," with Anderson .Paak on drums. Everyone then joined Dre on stage to remind the jam-packed crowd that he was, in fact, "Still Dre," before the sky was filled with fireworks.

While fans and neighbors alike expected an epic show, the stage setup and talent brought onto the field at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium was nothing short of mesmerizing, and each epic artist was given sufficient time to shine on the world’s biggest stage.
