Since 1978 the Lions have been one of the only NFL teams given the right to host a game on Thanksgiving day, a tradition that will live on this year with our Lions taking on our divisional rivals, the Greenbay Packers.
With the Lions starting out their season at a solid 6-2 so far and sitting atop the NFC North, things are finally starting to turn around for us loyal members of the pride. There’s been quite a bit of unfortunate injury luck, and despite our tough game against the Baltimore Ravens, our key players have been showing up when we need them throughout this season!
Now, aside from our onfield success, Detroit fans will have one extra thing to look forward to this Thanksgiving. This year, during the Lions’ traditional Thanksgiving Day game the half-time show is going to be performed by the one and only six-time Grammy-nominated artist, Jack Harlow.
While Harlow’s musical ability is certainly appreciated, it’s also worth noting that local music legend Eminem has never performed during the Thanksgiving Day game before, but maybe this is the year that changes!
Harlow will be singing his hits like “What’s Poppin” and “Industry Baby” to an American audience that is either already full of or in the process of enjoying their Thanksgiving meals.
Unfortunately, after his performance, it seems that Jack won’t be sticking around to take in the wonders that the Motor City has to offer, because the very next day after his Thanksgiving Day half-time performance, he going to Owensboro, Kentucky for part of his local tour in Kentucky to close out the year. This makes sense given that he’s originally from Louisville, so maybe he planned it out to spend some time with childhood friends and his family.
