TikTok is getting into the Super Bowl swing with its first-ever “tailgate” two-hour pregame show — featuring a live performance by Miley Cyrus.
The #TikTokTailgate, hosted by Steve Harvey and MJ Acosta, also will feature appearances by Rebel Wilson, Kane Brown, Ajani Huff, Dave Jorgenson, Adam Devine, Trace McSorley (“TikTok’s most popular QB”) and more in the lead-up to the big game on Feb. 8. TikTok creators @chefcuso, @goodeatswithtati and @acooknamedmatt will also share their best game day recipes so fans can recreate the tailgate dishes they’ve been craving.
TikTok is an official partner of the NFL for the experience, which will go live on @NFL on TikTok starting at 2:30 p.m. ET/11:30 a.m. PT, available to the app’s users in the U.S. and Canada.
According to TikTok, the musical performances will take place in front of 7,500 vaccinated health-care workers that the NFL invited to attend Super Bowl LV in Tampa, Fla.
“The NFL has embraced the TikTok community, and throughout the 2020 NFL season the league has provided unique access and behind-the-scenes moments to fans rooting for their favorite teams and players from home,” TikTok said in announcing the event. “We want to keep fans connected as they get hyped for the Big Game, so this year we’re bringing the excitement of Super Bowl LV to the TikTok community.”
