The biggest night in sports— and possibly the biggest televised event of the year so far— goes down on Feb. 13 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif. The game is a big deal given that it is the behemoth venue’s first-ever Super Bowl, not to mention L.A. team the Rams will be making an appearance against the Cincinnati Bengals. We know the NFL championship game is, well, more than just a game, so we have the rundown on everything you need to know ahead of Sunday’s event.
Whether streaming, broadcasting or listening over the radio, there are numerous ways to tune into the Super Bowl. Starting at 6:30 p.m. ET/ 3:30 PT, turn on NBC or NBC Sports (through live TV or Hulu Live) or stream live on Peacock. Other options include pulling up the game through the NFL or Yahoo! sports app on devices like Apple TV, Roku or XBOX or any phone and tablet device. If you’re not able to sit back and watch from the screen, you can listen on NFL’s Game Pass, SiriusXM, TuneIn or WestwoodOne.
Mickey Guyton will take on the task of kickstarting the day’s festivities. “Look at God. I am shook, I am grateful, I am praise dancing… So Excited to be singing the national anthem at #SBLVI on February 13th,” she tweeted.
However, musical performances will begin well in advance of Guyton taking the stage. DJ extraordinaire Zedd will host as pregame DJ, while Mary Mary, Yola and the L.A. Philharmonic’s Hollywood Bowl Orchestra will take on “Lift Every Voice and Sing.” Also, L.A. native Jené Aiko will perform “America the Beautiful.” It’ll be a big day for the singer, who noted on Twitter that she has ties to both teams with her dad being from Cincinnati and her mom being from Los Angeles.
L.A. runs through the DNA of Super Bowl LVI’s music, especially when it comes to the Pepsi Halftime Show. Right from the massive Inglewood stage, the performance will encompass Compton and Long Beach through California legends Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre and Kendrick Lamar. The trio will also find star support in Mary J. Blige and Eminem. “This is history in the making,” Jay-Z said upon the performance’s initial announcement.
