Our Top Ten Super Bowl Performances! Which One Is Your Favorite?

Posted Sat, February 5, 2011 5:34pm EDT

The Black Eyed Peas are unstoppable performers, but how will their halftime show compare to the top 10 past music legends that have graced the Super Bowl stage?

Super Bowl Sunday is here! A day of celebration to spend time with friends and family while enjoying America’s favorite pastime. Whether you are rooting for the Steelers or the Packers, everyone can agree there’s more than just football to enjoy this Sunday. The celebrity-studded parties, hilarious commercials, and the epic halftime show are, for some, the best part of the Super Bowl Sunday experience! This year the Black Eyed Peas will be taking over the epic halftime show with a fifteen minute medley of their best songs. Rumor has it they will be rocking outrageous fashions and busting out crazy dance moves. The Super Bowl stage has housed music legends like Britney Spears, Michael Jackson, The Rolling Stones, and Justin Timberlake. Will the Black Eyed Peas rise to the occasion and bring enough heat to make Janet Jackson‘s wardrobe malfunction look like nothing more than a small kitchen fire, or will their performance sizzle short? Here are our top 10 favorite past Super Bowl performances, tell us what you think!

  1. Janet Jackson, Diddy, Nelly, Kid Rock and Justin Timberlake (Super Bowl 2004): This show-stopping performance got more attention for its infamous “wardrobe malfunction” controversy than its hot musical performances. This Super Bowl halftime show was so outrageous that now the FCC requires a five second delay on live broadcasts to prevent any more surprise flashing.
  2. Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, Aerosmith, *NSYNC, Britney Spears, Mary J. Blige and Nelly (Super Bowl 2001): There is nothing American pop culture loves more than the union of the prince and princess of pop music: Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. At the height of their pop art careers they wowed millions of viewers with a joint medley.
  3. Michael Jackson (Super Bowl 1993): Before all the drama, Michael Jackson was one of the most amazing pop performers of our country. At the pinnacle of his career  he became the game changer for the Super Bowl, making it one of the most watched events on television. After he crooned “Billy Jean” on center stage, it became tradition that only A-list musicians could perform during halftime.
  4. The Rolling Stones (Super Bowl 2006): A throwback to the legends of Rock ‘n’ Roll, The Rolling Stones brought an edgy performance to the Super Bowl by rocking out classics like ‘(I can’t get no) satisfaction’ and ‘Start me up.’
  5. Phil Collins, Christina Aguilera, Enrique Iglesias and Toni Braxton (Super Bowl 2000): This Disney-themed production featured great music and utter hotness with a duet from two sizzling latin performers Enrique Iglesias and Christina Aguilera.
  6. Prince (Super Bowl 2007): Prince stole the show with some of his greatest hits and a cover of the Foo Fighter’s hit ‘The Best of You.’Prince was dubbed to have the best guitar solo in Super Bowl history.
  7. Shania Twain, No Doubt and Sting (Super Bowl 2003): This performance featured two girl-power ballads sung by female icons Country crooner Shania and punk rocker Gwen. The boys had their fun too in a duet with Sting and Gwen Stefani.
  8. New Kids on the Block (Super Bowl 1991): This Small World tribute featured America’s favorite boy bad New Kids on The Block, Mickey Mouse, and 2,000 local children in the audience. Its amazing how 20 years later the New Kids on the Block are still on the scene.
  9. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (Super Bowl 2008): This band brought the heat with good old American classic like ‘Free Fallin’ and ‘American Girl.’
  10. The Who (Super Bowl 2010): Last year’s Super Bowl Performer played it old school with some of their greatest classic hits like CSI theme song ‘Who are you.’

Tell us who YOU thought was the best Super Bowl performer!

The point is not whether Shania or any other living performer at the Superbowl Half-Time Show was the best and therefore deserves to win, okay?
The question posed by the poll IS:
“Our Top Ten Super Bowl Performances! Which One Is Your Favorite?”
Which one you ask? Michael Jackson, far and away is the best and most spectacular performance for me, not to mention the humanitarian aspect to his participation. As usual, he led the way as he often did. Everyone else has been trying to match his success at the event since. He had more people tune in back then for his performance than the game itself and I believe he still holds the highest viewers for the event to date.
Judging from the results, I am not alone in my opinion.
