Mary J. Blige Performs ‘No More Drama’ During Super Bowl 56 Halftime Show Which Features Y&R’s ‘Nadia’s Theme’ Sample

The much talked about and highly-anticipated Super Bowl 56 halftime show was the first time in the history of Pro Football’s yearly crowning achievement that saw hip-hop and rappers headline the big show.

In a throwback to some of the big hits of the 90’s and early 2000’s, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dog, Eminem, 50 Cent, Kendrick Lamar and Mary J Blige all took turns performing to the millions and home and the over 70,000 in attendance at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles.

However, it was the the brilliant Mary J. Blige, who had soap fans and pundits taking to social media following her her performance of Family Affair complete with dancers, but then transitioning into No More Drama.  And, it is No More Drama that has been favorite of many a soap fan of Blige’s, for it uses a sample of the iconic “Nadia’s Theme”, which is the current and ongoing theme of CBS’ The Young and the Restless.

Blige dropped down onto her back as she pretended to collapse for just a little bit of extra drama at the end of her solo performance.

The halftime show was produced by Jay-Z and featured Eminem getting down on one knee after his performance of Lose Yourself, which appeared to be moment to show solidarity with Colin Kaepernick, the ex-NFL QB who took a knee to protest police brutality and racial injustice back in 2016.  According to reports, the NFL stated that they knew ahead of time that Eminem would include the gesture in the performance.

So, what did you think of Mary J performing “No More Drama”? How did the Super Bowl 56 halftime show measure up? Let us know in the comment section below.

I wonder if y n r gets any risidual royalties !?
Lord knows they could use a financial boost…10 actors on contract, 4 sets in rotation and bargain basement writing staff
You’d think cbs was purposely trying to axe the show…

I preferred the halftime shows in the 2000s that had actual bands playing instruments, but the “Dre & friends” show was pretty good, production wise. Maybe Dre should have rewrote his biggest NWA hit with the new title “Fuck the Referees”.

If you want to know why, just watch the last two minutes of the game again. They couldn’t have made the rigging any more obvious. A Devil’s not even a Bengals fan, but unholy shit, they got robbed by the zebras…

I’m with you on this, S. I always wonder why the stars get so hyped up about this. The vocals are taped so you don’t have to worry about forgetting the lyrics (though in J. Lo’s case this would be a plus). The music seems pre-programmed so the music should go smoothly. I guess they worry about doing all those gymnastics and calisthenics while lip syncing. I wonder how legendary stars like Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Barbra Streisand, Janis Joplin, Bruce Springsteen, Heart, Linda Ronstadt, Bob Dylan ever got thru a show without doing push-ups and squats?

The last time an actual band played the Super Bowl was 2010 and it was The Who…. Roger Daltrey sounded absolutely horrible. That might be when they decided pre-recorded vocals might be a good idea. Too bad the NFL panicked completely and never invited a real band to play the show again.

Of course calling The Who a real band is a bit of a stretch since Moon & Entwistle died. On the other horn… you should hear those guys jamming with Hendrix & Brian Jones!!

Young Joey seems to be a very capable quarterback, but the Bengals really need to get that offensive line in order. You can’t get sacked as many times as Burrow does and not eventually get hurt really bad. Hate to see his career end early because the rest of the team didn’t protect him

Snoop is still #1 —
He has the rhythm and the moves–
He delivers smooth and easy..
It was the best Half time I’ve seen..
Congrats to them all—

Don’t tell anyone this old gal loves Snoop too. Too bad they couldn’t have Martha trotting out a snack for him.

Hi Violet 🙂
Hope all is well and healthy in your world–
And- never too old to luv Snoop!!
Ohh yes, Snoop is the best–
He has a way that none of the others have-
He is mesmerizing when he gets it on..
There is something about seeing him that makes one want to fire one up LOL—:)

SuOOO Thanks for the kind words and next time you see him, fire one up for me too! Funny story, a few months ago I was having quite a lot of pain and when nothing was working I spied a chewable on a shelf that a “friend” had given me for such an occasion. I have never even had a drag on a joint so had no idea how this would effect me. I only ate half which was about 1/4 inch. Within 90 min. I guess, I felt like I was dieing and within the next 30 min. I… Read more »

Edibles are a very different experience than smoking. It’s more of a “full body high” than the “head” high you get from smoking or vaping weed. The problem most mortals run into the first time is that they don’t get high right away, so they think they need to eat more…. without realizing that it takes anywhere from 1 – 3 hours (depending on your metabolism) to kick in. Also depends on what other food you might have in your system at the time and/or what sort of edible you have consumed, as THC is “fat soluable”. So let’s say… Read more »

Hey, I was in the room when cannabis was invented, so I’ve always advocated for its use. Feel the same way about many other plant based medicines… but I don’t want to get big pharma trolls in here, so I’ll leave it at that.

Also…. if you’re looking for pain relief but not necessarily a high, you might want to look for CBD edibles. They contain some of the medicinal properties of cannabis without the psychoactive properties of THC. I’m in Hell, so I don’t know what the local/state laws are in your area, but CBD products sourced from hemp are often avaiable even in states where “weed” itself is not yet legal.

Satan, Thank you so much for the info. Some I knew and some I didn’t and learned the hard way. I would have been better off smoking a joint, but I’ve always been afraid of the reaction. My main pain comes from Diabetic Neuropathy and have gotten relief for years from something called EMU 420, 50mgs of CBD oil. Alas, now it’s nowhere to be found in my San Diego area and I’ve tried so many of the shops and on-line. In desperation I tried a little piece of the gummie thing and I was told later it was the… Read more »

Violet and Su000…I’m not a rap fan, horrible lyrics if that’s what you want to call them. Especially stuff about women. But I gave Snoop a pass when he hooked up with Martha. Thought maybe he had outgrown his earlier “music” career. Until I read an article in Newsweek that he had collaborated on a new song recently called “Police” that encourages killing policemen. The NFL was made aware and asked to drop him from the show. Obviously they didn’t. NYCity police boycotted the halftime show because of this, just a few days after two of their own were killed… Read more »

rose, I definitely agree with you and I am going to sound like the worst hypocrite. I hate rap also for the lack of music and choice of words. In fact, I won’t let my grt.grandkids play it around me. I can’t even explain it. Why do I like him so much but hate everything his “music” stands for? I saw he and his family on a game show and he was like a “real” person. Also with Martha, is she such a bad judge of character? She certainly doesn’t need the money their association brings. I don’t know. It… Read more »

Hi Violet…I think we all have our guilty pleasures. For a person who hates guns and violence I confess mine is the movie “Kill Bill.” Can’t figure why. Let’s just hope our better angels always prevail.

Thanks for the reprieve. Though I’ve loved my Soaps for over 60 years I do enjoy all the “cop” shows on TV as well as the Adventure movies, i.e Die Hard, etc. Have never seen Kill Bill though. Speaking of adventures, hope today’s show means they will be closing in on Peter soon, this is ridiculous, after so long, one just doesn’t give a fig anymore.

Daytime Emmy-Winner Ted King Returns to B&B as Jack and Shares: “Sheila Might Want To Watch Her Back”

This week on The Bold and the Beautiful, things are set to take a startling turn.  First, in the latest promo for the CBS soap opera, Finn (Tanner Novlan) finally wakes up from his coma and Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) is right there with him! What will her next move be?

Meanwhile, newly crowned Daytime Emmy-winner for Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series, Ted King (Jack), will be back on the canvas and that will come with more twists and turns in this already twisted storyline!

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, the character of Jack returns to Los Angeles after the massive falling out with his wife, Li (Naomi Matsuda) – who is somewhere under water at this point – and his biological son, Finn.  As viewers know, Finn was the ‘by-product’ of Jack’s affair with Sheila many years ago.

Now learning that Sheila shot both Finn and Steffy, Jack is not going to just let that go by quietly. Far from it!

King explained to SOD: “Sheila might want to watch her back.” He added, “This is not a happy family. At this point we’ve only seen Jack and Sheila extremely distant – and at each other’s throat.  So, I don’t think it’s going to get any better.”

Watch the latest promo for B&B below.  Then weigh-in; Glad to have Ted King back on the canvas? Will Jack get swept up again in Sheila’s machinations? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

That’s a wrap for both Sal Stowers and Lamon Archey and their on-screen alter egos, Lani and Eli Grant.  Today on the July 1st episode of Days of our Lives,  the couple exited Salem paving the way for the real-life departures of Sal and Lamon who are going on to pursue other TV and film roles.

On her final airdate, Sal tweeted: “What an incredible journey these past seven years have been. To all our #Elani crew and #Days fans thank you for loving and supporting us the way you did. We will miss you much, I will miss you. Xx”

Lamon Archey also added his own tweets, sharing: “#Days fans, THANK YOU! We made a #SUPERCOUPLE & a #SUPERFAMILY #ELANI”

In story, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) had a special farewell for Eli, and Abe (James Reynolds) adopted Lani so he could be her father again, in very touching moments on the air-show.

Still the departures of Sal and Lamon, who became quite the popular duo as #Elani, will be a very big blow for the long-running NBC soap opera.  But in soap operas, you never know when your favorite actors or characters might return.

So, sad to see Lamon and Sal as Eli and Lani exit Salem today? Comment below.
