The big game is just days away so we’ve come up with a Top 5 list of our favorite Super Bowl halftime performances.
After viewing our choices, we want you to weigh in! Did we leave someone out? Or rank someone too high? Let us know in the comments section!
Super Bowl XXXVII (2003)
No Doubt, Sting and Shania Twain
This was one of the only Super Bowls in the 2000’s decade that did not feature an AFC quarterback named Brady, Manning, or Roethlisberger. Unfortunately for Raiders QB Rich Gannon, he would not have the same success shared by his AFC counterparts. Buccaneers 48 Raiders 21.
Super Bowl XLV (2011)
This halftime show had a little bit of everything. The Black Eyed Peas were the headliners, fresh off their sixth studio album The Beginning, and had alongside them rock n’ roll legend Slash of Guns N’ Roses plus R&B superstar Usher. Mix in the fact that Christina Aguilera sang the national anthem and you have yourself one impressive list of performers.
Super Bowl XXXVIII (2004)
This halftime performance might have been more talked about than the actual game itself – a nightmare for NFL executives. The Patriots went on to win their 2nd Super Bowl over the Carolina Panthers 32-29 despite the infamous “wardrobe malfunction.”
Super Bowl XLVI (2012)
Last year’s halftime show was brilliant by all accounts. It showcased the Queen of Pop, who proved to a record number of fans watching at home that she’s “still got it,” but also had an injection of youth with such young stars as the party rockin’ LMFAO and hip hop superstar Nicki Minaj.
Super Bowl XXXV (2001)
This halftime show was much more exciting than the actual game (The Ravens crushed the Giants 34-7) and showcased Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake at the height of their popularity, the Bad Boys From Boston and Mary J. too!
