When Is the 2022 Super Bowl Halftime Show?
This year’s Super Bowl kicks off at 6:30pm ET / 3:30pm PT tonight, Sunday, Feb. 13.
As the name suggests, the Super Bowl Halftime Show takes place halfway through the football game, right after the second quarter and before the third quarter. If you consider that each quarter is 15-minutes in length, you would think the Super Bowl Halftime Show starts at 7pm.
However, that’s not factoring in time outs, commercials and other stoppages in play. Most football quarters actually take about 30-40 minutes to play, which means the Super Bowl Halftime Show likely won’t start until 7:30-8pm ET at the earliest.
Who Is Performing at the 2022 Super Bowl Halftime Show?
As previously reported, the Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show will feature performances from Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Eminem and Mary J. Blige. The show is being produced by Jay-Z and Roc Nation, and each of the artists is expected to perform a medley of their biggest hits.
Previous Halftime Shows have revealed surprise guest performers, though organizers have been mum as to whether any surprise performers will hit the stage at Super Bowl LVI.
How Long Is the Super Bowl Halftime Show 2022?
A regular NFL halftime lasts between 12 and 15 minutes, giving players a chance to rest and regroup (and commentators a chance to go over the first half of play with viewers on TV).
However, a regular halftime doesn’t feature any performances. Halftime at the Super Bowl features not only the color commentary but also a special live performance, and so it runs longer than a regular halftime. Halftime at the Super Bowl can range anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes, with the actual Super Bowl Halftime Show running for about 12-15 minutes in length.
The 2022 Super Bowl Halftime Show length is expected to clock in at 12 minutes. For reference, The Weeknd’s Super Bowl Halftime Show in 2021 clocked in at just over 14 minutes in length.
