Super Bowl weekend in Atlanta has the city bringing Hollywood’s biggest stars out to perform and enjoy the festivities that have been taking place all week. On Saturday, Feb.2, the Sports Illustrated Party was no exception.
The “ Saturday Night Party” allowed attendees to enjoy an intimate setting with performances from rap stars Snoop Dogg and Lil Wayne. Other stars in attendance included Dallas Austin, “STARS” actress Ryan Destiny, model Jasmine Sanders, Da Brat, Atlanta legends Lil Jon and Pastor Troy, and much more.
As the anticipation heats up of who will win the Super Bowl, celebrities and athletes give their predictions on who will take home the big win between the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots.
When asked who will win between the two, actor and comedian JB Smoove says, “that’s a hard one.”
“I don’t have a dog in this fight, because I’m a Saints fan. You would think I would have animosity toward the Rams for beating my guys, but I want an overtime game, and I want the game to be just as exciting as the playoff game,” JB Smoove said. “I do believe a ram can beat a goat, but that ram got to get to that goat, but I’m going to go with the Patriots, field goal with overtime.”
Marcedes Lewis, tight end for the Green Bay Packers also says that it will be a tough game.
“I’m from California. I came close to signing with the Rams, and I know some of the coaches, “ Lewis said. “I hope they have amazing success and I also believe Tom Brady is the goat, and it’s hard to beat him and, I just want to see a really good game.”
Former Ohio State Buckeyes head coach, Urban Meyer is rooting for John Simon, a former Buckeye currently playing for the Patriots.
“I’m taking him,” Meyer said.
Atlanta native Pastor Troy decided to join the Sports Illustrated Party after shutting down Super Bowl Live Monday. After 20 years in the rap game, Pastor Troy says it feels good to have the Super Bowl in Atlanta for the third time since 1994 and 2000.
“I think Atlanta is the perfect host city especially of how we are doing it up right now,” Pastor Troy said. “Atlanta is on top!”
The game kicks off at 6:30 PM inside Mercedes Benz Stadium.
