A Look at the Best Super Bowl Halftime Shows [VIDEOS]

It’s Super Bowl 47 or XLVII. New England isn’t in it, so I’m trying to come up with reasons to watch. There are the commercials, sure the spectacle of the game and of course,  the halftime show. Super Bowl halftime shows can be kind of hit or miss. This year it’s Beyonce and rumor has it she’ll be with Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland. Yes, a Destiny’s Child reunion. Could be amazing or could be an epic fail.

I thought visually the Black Eyed Peas halftime performance during Super Bowl 45 was stunning but the audio wasn’t there. Not sure if the mix was off or it was the Black Eyed Peas themselves.

Last year, Madonna and Nicki Minaj, I thought were pretty good together. Nicki Minaj I think needs a few more albums and status before we equate her with the likes of Madonna or even Mariah Carey.

We all remember ‘nipple-gate’ with Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake back in 2004. That mishap or ‘wardrobe malfunction’ changed live broadcasts for quite some time with more delays and higher fines, leading to safer TV. Nine years later I think we’re back, to somewhat at times, living on the edge with live broadcasts on network TV.

I think the most touching Super Bowl halftime performance was U2 from 2002 with the names of all who died on 9/11 scrolling on a back screen.

The year before U2 was great for a different reason. The energy and party feel that was Aerosmith, NSYNC, Britney Spear and Mary J. Blige, was my favorite Super Bowl Halftime show.

Here is the list of the halftime talent from the Super Bowls past. It really wasn’t until 1991 that we saw national recording artists like we do today. In 1991 it was New Kids On The Block but before that is was mostly college marching bands.
