Jason Radowitz shares his prediction for Super Bowl LVI and what the Halftime Show will begin with.

Super Bowl 2022: What Will Be the First Song of Halftime Show?

This year's halftime show for Super Bowl LVI will feature a bunch of exciting artists including Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar, and Dr. Dre.

Currently, nobody has a clue how this halftime show will start or who will get the first stab at performing. But the odds are out and we've done our research. Now it's time to submit the bet and hope for the best. Click Here for Super Bowl LVI Odds

  • The Next Episode +500
  • Still D.R.E. +500
  • Nuthin But a "G" Thang +600

  • Drop It Like It's Hot +700
  • All The Stars +900
  • HUMBLE +900

Family Affair (Bet $100 to win $450)

Currently, the odds are that Mary J. Blige performs first. You know the saying, "ladies first." She's the only woman of the bunch performing and likely will get to start off the show. There's also that chance that two performers start at the same time.

The odds are that there's a good chance that not all five artists will collaborate together for a song during the performance. Oddsmakers also have the over 8.5 songs played set at -300. I've also seen some books with the total set at 10.5 at a more even price.

The reality is, we're basically trying to pick the first touchdown scorer in the halftime show. And you know how hard that can be.

If Mary J. Blige is going to be the first performer, then I'll predict Family Affair will be the first song that will be played in the Halftime show. However, if it's Dr. Dre, for example, California Love seems like the top pick here.

California Love makes sense to be played during this performance, but I don't think it'll be first. Of course, with the game being played in California, this song is a must-play, but again, Mary J. Blige likely starts off this performance with her own hit and that's Family Affair.
