Blige and Kendrick Lamar will all perform after the Rams and Bengals go to the locker rooms at halftime. It should be quite a memorable show with so much talent coming together for it.

Halftime Show Preview
Over the years, the Super Bowl halftime show has featured some of the biggest artists of all time. But it hasn't been common for there to be five announced performers who are set to take the stage, so this year is unique in that regard.
It's also going to be the first halftime show to be centered completely around hip-hop music. And for fans of the genre, it will be incredible to see these artists all come together for one big show.
How is the performance going to go, and how many songs will be played? We'll have to wait to find out. But with so many hit songs having been made by these five artists combined, it wouldn't be surprising to see some medleys to allow everybody their opportunity to shine.
"We are incredible, we're like the Super Friends," Blige said, per Nicholas Rice of People.com. "It's crazy."
Blige, who is the lone woman artist among the five performers, noted that she was asked by Dr. Dre to be part of the halftime show with the group. Part of the show is being produced by Roc Nation, which is Jay-Z's sports/entertainment company.
"To actually have Dr. Dre reach out and ask was just huge, because Dr. Dre is one of the most important people in hip-hop, and as a producer, as a writer, as a rapper. He's just the one, you know?" Blige said, per Rice.
At past Super Bowls, there have been some rap/hip-hop performers who have collaborated with other artists. For example, Blige and Nelly showed up during the Super Bowl XXXV halftime show in 2001, which was headlined by Aerosmith and NSYNC.
Nicki Minaj (Super Bowl XLVI), Missy Elliott (Super Bowl XLIX) and Big Boi (Super Bowl LIII) are among the other guests who have been featured in smaller supporting roles at past halftime shows.
But this time, it will be five hip-hop artists at the forefront, putting on what should be a memorable performance.
"We're gonna open more doors for hip-hop artists in the future and making sure that the NFL understands this is what it should have been a long time ago," Dr. Dre said, per Chloe Melas of CNN. "We're gonna show exactly how professional we can be, how dope we can be on stage and how exciting we are going to be to the fans."
And that's exactly why so many fans are looking forward to this halftime show, which should provide plenty of entertainment at the midway point of Super Bowl LVI.
