Coldplay, Bruno Mars and Beyonce’s Halftime show was the best moment of Super Bowl 50. Now, the big question is: who should perform at Super Bowl 51? From Taylor Swift to Adele to One Direction and more, help HollywoodLife.com pick who should play the big game next year!
The stage of the Super Bowl 50 Halftime show is still on fire after Beyonce, 34, Bruno Mars, 30, and Coldplay lit it up with their scorching performance. But that was then. It’s now time to look forward and ask the pressing question: who should perform at Super Bowl 51?
The first obvious suggestion is Bey herself. The “Formation” singer was the Halftime spectacular’s biggest highlight for many. If she wasn’t paying tribute to Michael Jackson, honoring the Black Panther Party or leaving everyone completely stunned with her entrance, Beyonce was slaying it. She kind of blew away Chris Martin, 38, and the rest of the band. Plus, Super Bowl 51 is being held in Bey’s hometown of Houston, Texas on Feb. 5, 2017. It seems like it is destiny!
Bey wasn’t the only diva at Super Bowl 50 who could return in 2017. Lady Gaga, 29, who completely nailed the national anthem at the start of the extravaganza, would be a killer pick for the Halftime show. If Gaga is too busy, perhaps pop music royalty, Britney Spears, 34, can take the spotlight? She did perform in 2001, along with Aerosmith and ‘N Sync, so is it time she gets the stage to herself?
‘N Sync’s Justin Timberlake, 35, made Super Bowl history in 2004, thanks to Janet Jackson, 49, and her nipple. Perhaps the NFL will have him back if he performs with Luke Bryan, 39. Justin and Chris Stapleton, 37, rocked the CMAs, so maybe the Super Bowl could be the perfect place for Justin and Luke to show some country music pride.
Someone else who could bring a bit of country-pop flare to Super Bowl 51 is Taylor Swift, 26. T-Swift could turn 2017 to 1989, bringing her incredible stage show to football’s biggest night. Plus, it would be a way for her to show up her rival, Katy Perry, 31, by doing the Halftime show bigger and better.

For Adele, 27, the word “football” means something in her native England, but she’s flawless in any country. The “Hello” superstar could totally tear the NRG Stadium down. If Adele’s busy, perhaps Rihanna, 27, would take the gig? Imagine how many of her friends she could bring along — from Drake, who appeared on her “Work” single, to her fellow “FourFiveSeconds” stars Paul McCartney, 73, and Kanye West, 38. Oh! Maybe Ye would want to do the show?
With New Kids On The Block performing in 1991 and ‘N Sync rocking the stage in 2001, will 2017 see the return of another boy band giant? Could One Direction end their hiatus to bring the boys back together for the Super Bowl? It definitely would be epic!
