NEW YORK, Oct. 11, 2013 -- Team VH1 and NFL have the home field advantage in 2014 as Super Bowl XLVIII pregame festivities tackle New York and New Jersey.

The VH1 Super Bowl Blitz (#VH1BLITZ) will begin on Monday, January 27th through Saturday, February 1 at 11PM ET/PT, and rain or shine, snow or hail, no part of the NY/NJ area will be untouched. From Queens to the Bronx, through Brooklyn and Manhattan, passing through Staten Island and concluding in the game's host state of New Jersey, VH1 is bringing this year's chart-topping musicians to a series of performances each night to celebrate Super Bowl XLVIII.
