Being invited to the Super Bowl half time show is a great honour, and artists often bring out the most elaborate performances.
Let’s review the five most impressive performances in Super Bowl history.
- Michael Jackson (1993)
One of the most-watched performances in Super Bowl history, the King of Pop has brought to the audience a series of his including “Jam”, “Billie Jean” and “Black or White”. The scene then made the viewers on the small screen goosebumps. All the audience on the field raised colour signs at the same time to create images of children on the music scene “We Are The World”. The turn ended with a performance of the song “Heal The World” with the harmony of 3,500 teenagers and children on stage.
- Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake (2004)
It was the day when the phrase “wardrobe malfunction” was updated into the American dictionary because Justin Timberlake accidentally revealed Janet Jackson’s chest to the whole world at the end of the performance. Janet was heavily influenced and reacted violently from the public while Justin seemed to be escaped. But anyway, the audiences have to admit that both artists have brought a vast repertoire. It is only regretted that chest scandal is the only thing most people remember about this performance.
- Paul McCartney (2005)
Paul McCartney was a safe choice after Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson’s infamous chest exposures last year. The former Beatle heated the stage with the song “Drive My Car” and “Get Back”, before changing the guitar with a piano for the performance of “Live and Let Die” under the fireworks. The legendary male singer finished the performance that couldn’t be more perfect with his famous song “Hey Jude”, with the harmony of 84,000 spectators in the stadium.
- Bruno Mars (2014)
As one of the most famous pop stars of the past years, Bruno Mars proves to be a name to attract guests with a perfect performance. There is no need for colourful tricks, modern technology, or brilliant fireworks. The stage is simply a talented artist that attracts audiences with a loud voice, charismatic dance, and mastery of the stage. Starting with a solo drum performance, Bruno then performed a series of his hit songs including “Locked Out Of Heaven”, “Treasure”, “Runaway Baby” and “Just The Way You Are”.
- Coldplay, Beyoncé and Bruno Mars (2016)
The show started with British band Coldplay with the hit songs “Viva la Vida” and “Paradise” and then Bruno Mars with the hit song “Uptown Funk”. But Beyoncé was the queen of the night and shocked the United States for the first time to perform the most controversial song “Formation” with Black Panthers-inspired costumes and show the power of women. And the performance ended with three artists mixing in a different version of mashups.
