Bruins on the Super Bowl

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
