In early February, the Bengals played against the Rams in Los Angeles, California for the 56th Super Bowl. The Halftime show highlighted LA culture with performing artists from LA: Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar, and Eminem. I asked some UCLA Black Bruins what they thought of the performance.
- What did you think when you first heard who would be performing? How did you feel? When I heard who was performing, I was excited and was looking forward to seeing the halftime show. I was glad that there were so many amazing artists who were going to be there.
- Did you like the performance? If so, what was your favorite part? If not, explain why you didn’t like the performance. I liked the performance, and I was happy to see everyone who was involved, including the surprise guest 50 Cent. I grew up on all of their music, so it was nice to see everyone come together and make an entertaining show. I am not from L.A., but the show did a great job at highlighting the culture and iconic history of the city.
