Super Bowl halftime show 2022
The Super Bowl 56 halftime show will feature a star-studded lineup. A combination of Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar are the planned headliners. Additionally, deaf rappers Sean Forbes and Warren “WAWA” Snipe will perform interpretations of the headliners’ music in American Sign Language.
Who is performing the national anthem?
For the first time in Super Bowl history, the national anthem will be performed by a Black female country singer. Mickey Guyton, who is nominated for three awards at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards, will have the honor of performing “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
Additionally, Jhené Aiko will perform “America the Beautiful,” while Mary Mary will perform “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” accompanied by the Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles. During pregame warmups, electronic music producer Zedd will provide musical accompaniment.
Super Bowl odds 2022
- Spread: Rams -4
- Moneyline: Rams -190; Bengals +160
- Over/under: 48.5
The odds for Super Bowl 56 have remained fairly static since they were released immediately following the conclusion of the NFC Championship Game. The line has moved from the Rams favored by 3.5 points to the Rams being favored by 4 points as the week has moved on.
Additionally, the total opened at 50 points but has shifted down to 48.5. Both of these line moves could be explained due to the concern of the matchup between the Bengals’ offensive line and the Rams’ defensive line. That matchup could lead to this being viewed as a lower-scoring Super Bowl, where Cincinnati’s offense struggles to move the ball with any real consistency.
TV and radio announcers
The announcers for the Super Bowl on NBC will be the usual duo of Al Michael and Cris Collinsworth. They will be supported by sideline reporters Michele Tafoya and Kathryn Tappen. Meanwhile, Terry McAulay will provide rules analysis during the broadcast. The game will also be carried by Telemundo for Spanish viewers. Play-by-play will be handled by Carlos Mauricio Ramirez, with Jorge Andres providing color commentary and Ana Jurka reporting.
Radio coverage for Super Bowl 56 will be provided by Westwood One. In the booth will be Kevin Harlan and Kurt Warner. Harlan has been the radio play-by-play announcer for the last 12 Super Bowls. Warner will be joining him for his fourth straight as a color commentator. Laura Okmin will work her third Super Bowl as a sideline reporter, where she will be joined by Mike Golic. Scott Graham and Willie McGinest will provide the studio coverage.
