The performance Mary J. Blige gave in the 2022 Super Bowl was soon converted into internet memes by fans. A variety of artists were on stage for the halftime show of the Super Bowl 2022. Mary was one of them, bringing positive energy to the gathering she was a part of. Although her performance left some of her admirers speechless, others didn’t waste time turning her dance into a meme. On the other side, the spectators couldn’t wait to give the singer positive feedback on her outfit at halftime.
Review of Mary J. BLIGE’S Performance
Mary began her “Family Affair” and “No More Drama” performances by lighting the stage on fire. It wasn’t only the singer’s performance that people were talking about; it was also her attire. The dress worn by the singer reportedly required the usage of 10,000 Swarovski crystals, as reported by CNN. The hat, the boots, and the gloves were all coordinated with one another. Peter Dundas’s concept for Mary’s outfit became the focus of everyone’s attention.
Peter said to Women’s Wear Daily that he was trying for an appearance similar to that of a snow leopard with the outfit. He made the observation that he thought the mirrors worked well with Mary due to the fact that she tugs so much on your emotions when she sings about things that you can sort of relate with yourself. He felt that the mirrors worked extremely well with Mary. To a certain degree, the audience members may recognize themselves in her.
The Singer Became an Internet Meme Icon
After Mary J. Blige’s performance, the singer and actress became overcome with emotion and dropped to her knees. The fall, which had the appearance of being both accidental and on purpose, became famous on the internet. After her solo performance, the R&B legend’s fall gave rise to several memes. Some people draw parallels between it and the dolls’ tumble at the end of Toy Story, shortly before the human characters enter the picture. People are already calling her hilarious fall one of the early memes of the year.
Iconic Super Bowl moment: Eminem kneels
The fact that Eminem chose to kneel during his performance at the Super Bowl was yet another subject of discussion. The rapper dropped the news immediately after the performance of his chart-topping track “Lose Yourself.” Colin Kaepernick, a quarterback for the NFL, is the one who popularized the kneeling protest as a means of expressing opposition to racism and excessive force by law enforcement. The rapper has already shared his opinions on several political topics. The author of the post asserts that Eminem has, in the past, rapped against then-President Trump while performing at the BET Hip Hop Awards. Mary J. Blige has assured fans that the performance that will take place during the halftime break will “definitely” live up to their expectations. She seemed correct in her forecast since a significant number of users on Twitter have referred to this episode as “the greatest.”
