The Weeknd has big shoes to fill after Jennifer Lopez and Shakira totally brought the house down during the 2020 Super Bowl Halftime Show! So many fierce men and women have performed at the Halftime Show over the years, and we’re looking back at some of their incredible performances. Perhaps one of the most memorable moments was during Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake’s performance in 2004. Who could forget when he accidentally ripped her outfit off and exposed her bare chest on live television?! It’s still talked about to this day, but Janet’s performance was so good, it’s remembered for much more than just that moment.
Flash back to February 2020, Shakira and J.Lo brought some major girl power to the Super Bowl in between the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs’ big game. Shakira kicked off the show in a red sequined outfit, and rocked out on the guitar before showing off her dance moves during her hit song, “Wherever, Whenever.” J.Lo then hit the stage in a sexy black leather outfit with beaded embellishments. She kicked things off with “Jenny From The Block,” and transitioned into other hits like “Get Right,” “On The Floor,” and “Waiting for Tonight” before her daughter, Emme, 11, joined her onstage for a performance of “Let’s Get Loud.”
In 2001, Britney Spears was part of an epic Halftime Show lineup with Aerosmith, NSYNC, Mary J Blige and Nelly. She had her toned abs on full display for the performance, wearing metallic silver pants, along with a cropped shirt that had as super low neckline, as well. So fierce! Beyonce led the Halftime Show in 2013, and looked incredible while performing her biggest hits. She even reunited Destiny’s Child for part of the set! Bey wore a fierce, black leather bodysuit, paired with gloves and knee-highs, for the show.
In 2016, Beyonce returned to the stage as a surprise guest during Coldplay’s Halftime Show. She rocked another, sexy black leather outfit for the event, which she paired with combat boots. In 2017, Lady Gaga slayed the stage in various ensembles, included a beaded bodysuit, as well as a crop top and sequined shorts.
