Which Super Bowl 2022 Halftime Show Performer Has the Most Grammy Awards?

Antoinette Yen, Entertainment Editor

Countless famous artists have performed at the Super Bowl halftime show over the years. This year’s event featured legendary performers such as Dr. Dre, Mary J. Blige, Snoop Dogg, Eminem and Kendrick Lamar.

These five performers have nearly 50 Grammy Awards among them. But who has the most golden gramophones in their collection?

Snoop Dogg has 17 Grammy nominations

The California-born rapper has become a household name over the last three decades, thanks to songs like “Gin & Juice” and “Drop It Like It’s Hot.” A special distinction when it comes to the Grammy Awards, Snoop has received 17 Grammy Award nominations for his work over the years but has never won a Grammy. In 1994, he received his first nomination for Best Rap Performance for “Nuthin’ But a ‘G’ Thang.” His most recent nomination was as a featured artist on Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly, released in 2015.

 

Eminem has 15 Grammy Awards

Eminem hasn’t been in the game for quite as long as his fellow Super Bowl performers, but the Detroit-born rapper holds the most Grammy Awards to his name. To date, the “Lose Yourself” rapper has earned 15 Grammy Awards since the turn of the century. Eminem won his first two Grammy Awards for Best Rap Solo Performance (“My Name Is“) and Best Rap Album (The Slim Shady LP) at the 42nd GRAMMY Awards.

 

Kendrick Lamar has 13 Grammy Awards

Kendrick Lamar, an American rapper, has received 160 awards from 399 nominations, including 13 Grammys, six Billboard Music Awards, and the ASCAP Vanguard Award for his work as a composer. In 2013, Lamar received his first Grammy nominations, including Best New Artist and Album Of The Year for “Good Kid, M.A.A.D City.” In 2014, he received his first Grammy nominations for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song for “I.”

 

Mary J Blinge has 9 Grammy Awards

Mary J. Blinge shot to fame with her debut album, What’s The 411, in 1992, which yielded a Top 10 hit with “Real Love.” Her signature hits include “I’m Going Down,” “Mary Jane,” and “I Love You.” At the Grammy Awards, Mary received nine awards out of thirty-one nominations. She won her first Grammy in 1995 for Best Rap Performance By A Duo Or Group for her collaboration with Method Man, “I’ll Be There For You / You’re All I Need To Get By.” In 2003, she received her first solo GRAMMY for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for “He Think I Don’t Know,” from her album No More Drama.

Dr. Dre has 7 Grammy Wins

Dr. Dre has been a well-known rapper and producer since his days as a member of the seminal hip-hop group NWA. He won his first Grammy for best Rap Solo in 1993 for “Let Me Ride.” At the 53rd GRAMMY Awards, Dr. Dre made his GRAMMY stage debut, performing a medley of “Love The Way You Lie” and “I Need A Doctor” with Eminem, Skylar Grey, Adam Levine, and Rihanna. He has a slew of Grammys to his name with a total of seven wins and a whopping 26 nominations.

While dozens of Grammy Award winners have performed at the Super Bowl halftime show over the years, with some winning more Grammys than others, these honors are by no means a measure of their musical success.
Mary J. Blige and Dr. Dre have each won nine and seven Grammy Awards respectively.
