While two lucky teams will be gearing up to play the game of a lifetime, artists like Drake, J. Cole, TLC, and Diddy will be gearing up to perform the concert of a lifetime.

For this year’s Super Bowl festivities, VH1 presents Super Bowl Blitz: Six Nights + Six Concerts, which will be hosted by Nick Cannon and Stacy Keibler. All the action will go down in the greater area of New York City, including the five boroughs and New Jersey.

The concert series will run from January 27 to February 1, and will air live at 11 p.m. EST. J. Cole will kick off VH1′s concert series on Monday, January 27 at the Kupferberg Center of the Arts at Queens College, followed by Janelle Monae at Bronx’s Lehman College on Tuesday, and TLC at Manhattan’s Beacon Theatre on Thursday.

On the other hand, Drake will headline a private concert for Time Warner Cable’s REVOLT network on the eve of the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl pre-game party will be hosted by Diddy.

The biggest show of them all, the Super Bowl Halftime show, will be led by Bruno Mars on Sunday, February 2.
