Top 5 Super Bowl Halftime Shows

Good luck to the Black Eyed Peas, who play the 2011 Super Bowl Halftime show. They have some tough acts to follow. Here are our picks for the five best Super Bowl Halftime Shows of all time.

5. The Who – Super Bowl XLIV – 2010 Bridgestone Halftime Show

Some might think it a bit old-school and tame in comparison to some of the more glitzy halftime shows. But The Who is still a great band capable of pulling off some memorable performances. 2010’s set list included:

“Pinball Wizard”
“Who are You”
“Won’t Get Fooled Again”

4. Michael Jackson – Super Bowl XXVII – 1993

Despite what seems like a 10-minute long pause (where the crowd goes nuts), it’s still a classic performance from King of Pop. Songs he performed included:

“Billie Jean”
“Black or White”
“Heal the World”

4. Prince – Super Bowl XLI – 2007 Pepsi Halftime Show

In what many consider to be their favorite Super Bowl Halftime performance, Prince electrified the crowd with a set list including:

“Purple Rain”
“Let’s Go Crazy”

2. Steven Tyler, Aerosmith, Britney Spears, Ben Stiller, Mary J. Blige, Adam Sandler, ‘N Sync – Super Bowl XXXV – 2001

Perhaps the most surprising part of this show is how unlikely this grouping truly is. But it’s Steven Tyler arguably at his best on songs including:

“Walk This Way”
“Bye Bye Bye”

1. U2 – Super Bowl XXXVI – 2002

Bono is one of the great rock entertainers of all time. U2’s 2002 performance commemorated the September 11, 2001 tragedy with songs including:

“Where the Streets Have No Name”

Dishonorable Mention – Janet Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Kid Rock, Jessica Simpson – 2004 – XXXVIII

It’s actually not a bad performance, but Janet Jackson’s famous wardrobe malfunction turned this into one of the most controversial on-screen moments in history. Who even remembers that Jessica Simpson was part of the act?

“All for You”
“Rhythm Nation”
“Rock Your Body”

That’s our top 5. What about yours?
