It was “Dre Day” once again as the Dr. Dre-focused 2022 Pepsi Super Bowl halftime show prevailed at Saturday’s first night of the Creative Arts Emmys.
This year’s Emmy for best live variety special went to NBC’s broadcast of the halftime show that aired during the NFL championship game on February 13, 2022. The special was officially titled The Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show Starring Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar and 50 Cent, with Anderson . Paak as a special guest.
The winners for the show were executive producers JAY-Z, Desiree Perez and Jesse Collins; co-executive producers Dionne Harmon and Dave Meyers; supervising producer Aaron B. Cooke; and performers Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar and 50 Cent.
This also marks the first time that hip-hop has been awarded in the category, with the show’s medley including such radio hits as “California Love,” “No More Drama,” “Lose Yourself” and “Still D.R.E.”
50 Cent, Skylar Grey, Paul Rosenberg, Fredwreck and more shared their congratulating messages to the legendary crew on social media. You can check it below:
