The Super Bowl LVI halftime show had some big expectations entering Sunday thanks to a star-studded lineup of Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Eminem and Kendrick Lamar.

It seems safe to say those expectations were met and more.

All five stars and more played the hits as they made their way through a complex set, with cameos from 50 Cent and Anderson .Paak adding to the gravity of the occasion. For the people who grew up on this music, and had never seen a rap act headline the Super Bowl halftime show, it was something of a fever dream.

You didn't have to look far on Twitter to find fans of what was going down, with some hailing it as the best halftime show in Super Bowl history.

Even those the world over in Beijing were enjoying themselves.

As fun as the show was, the undeniable fact that we were hearing the hits of more than a decade ago was an uncomfortable realization for some.
