Congratulations to the Los Angeles Rams for edging out the Cincinnatti Bengals in Sunday’s NFL Super Bowl victory at the SoFi Stadium in California.
Perhaps most of the attention given to this year’s football championship was arguably the Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show.
Typically, people are excited to see which commercials would amaze them but the talent for this year’s contest may have been the greatest lineup the Super Bowl has ever seen. The highly anticipated performance was headlined by Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar. The performances also include appearances by 50 Cent and Anderson.Paak.
Social media took center stage on Sunday as a companion piece to people’s reaction to the performers.

There were more Black people dancing onstage in the #SuperBowl halftime show than the combined number of Black head coaches, GMs and team presidents in NFL history.
Not that I was counting. I didn’t even watch. I’m just guessing there was more than 24 Black people dancing.

The only white performer on stage during the #SuperBowl halftime show being the one to take the risk of taking a knee is my kinda protest.

Due to “blacklash,” next year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show will feature Ted Nugent, Kid Rock, Hank Williams Jr, Travis Tritt and Chachi singing the “Happy Days!” theme song.

The halftime production of the #Superbowl was off the scale! The OG rappers reminded us all of the art and style of Hip Hop that can never be forgotten.

Crip walking on the Super Bowl halftime show is definitely giving Black history month
