Best Super Bowl Halftime Shows
The Top Ten
. . . excellent, exciting performance; professionalism in spite of challenging conditions (weather, which actually enhanced the performance); Prince worked well with the band and selected good songs that fit with keeping up the spirit of a Superbowl game. . .
U2 was great, especially coming after 9/11, but Prince put on a better show. For once the music took center stage.
To end the show so with so much energy makes this a deserving halftime show.
Unbelievable! Fantastic! You never miss them til they're gone.
No guests, no over produces show, Gaga showing what she is made of
Amazing, but should've brought a bunch of other guests.
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Done ALL by herself to show what she's made of!
Did it all herself and better than those with several guests.
Michael Jackson's Performance was without a doubt the most amazing, spectacular kickAss Show EVER! He IS the Number 1! Hands down
A household name, a great set list selection, and a wonderful halftime show.
Best superbowl in the world really
#10? Are you kidding me?! Put this at #1 right now.
Without a shadow of a doubt, the best halftime show EVER. How can we forget The Streets have no name with the 9/11 backdrop.
Few can argue the greatness of U2, and few can argue greatness of the show.
Tear dropping amazing show, was not fancy either.
That Beautiful Day performance was legendary. - ZeroBlaster
The most energetic and fun show ever! Should be at 1 in my opinion. The mix of Katy Perry, Missy Elliot, and Lenny kravitz is one that you can not top
Whoever made this list did it wrong! Katy Perry performed last year in super bowl 49. Bruno mars and red hot chili peppers performed in super bowl 48. - steelers1979
This is the best Superbowl & Katy Perry blew away the stage...
No question the greatest pure performance! This was classic Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band, actual got the crowd involved I singing the songs, didn't distract the performance with other props and artists, and the music was absolutely phenomenal!
From the Cardinals and Steelers introduction, through the energy roaring in the stadium, to the thrilling fireworks at the end of 'Glory Days', this show had the crowd on their feet the entire time.
Why isn't this higher?!?!? It was by far the best performance
Expectations met and even went beyond with the reunion with Destiny's Child! Not underwhelming nor overwhelming. It was great!
Why did they bring her back in Super bowl 50 if she did solo in 47 - WorldPuncher47592834
Beyoncé almost never fails to put on a good concert, and the same goes for this halftime show.
Bey is QUEEN
Bruno mars and the red hot chilli peppers had a lot of energy - Ajkloth
The wardrobe malfunction and all - WorldPuncher47592834
Why is Timberlake in the 2018 one. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL
The nipplegate made history. - ZeroBlaster
"better have you naked by the end of this song! " (rips off janet's top, exposing her breast on live T.V.)
that moment was classic!
Love this one - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL
A protective choice by the NFL after "nipplegate", still managed to keep the crowd engaged thoroughly.
Could have been a better quality show if there were less people to keep track of on stage.
Madonna is queen
I'm voting for this because the heartbreakers played during the super bowl where the patriots failed to complete the undefeated season. It's ironic actually.
RIP Tom Petty. While I hated the result of the game itself, the halftime show was great.
Everything was okay until Beyonce ruined it. Instead of performing a song called "Formation", why not sing her previous hits such as "Irreplaceable" or "Diva". Seriously? Forget what the critics said all about Coldplay. Of course, Coldplay unfortunately had to condense their songs in a few seconds to make room for Bruno Mars' Uptown Funk, Beyonce's Formation, and jam pack everything else in about 15 minutes on stage.
So much better than the ghastly mess that is the halftime show with Katy Perry. No stupid sharks or lions, just great music. At least with the show this year, it has been projected to the world that Coldplay actually has fans in real life, can you believe it?
This was awesome, I don't know why there was so much controversy. I was nearly in tears when I watched it. Incredible. - micahisthebest
This was actually pretty good, but then - WorldPuncher47592834
Part of that was censored.
The set list which featured their greatest hits provides a boost in the rankings.
Well played. The Who is one of the best rock 'n roll bands to hit the stage.
It was ok.
A string of great hits, and then helicoptering of the stage, what a way to end the show.
BBVD definitely needs more recognition
Not much to say, just a mediocre show.
What else was worse?
The song "Sicko Mode".
Sicko Mode is the WORST SONG EVER! BOO!
It was disappointed. Because they didn't play Sweet Victory. - LapisBob
What the hell is Travis Scott doing?
THIS WAS AWFUL! - WorldPuncher47592834
Can't wait until it happens.
It didn't happen this year...
It was great, but towards the end it went downhill.
Not as bad as people claim it to be, but JT could have did better. - ZeroBlaster
