When it comes to the Super Bowl, it’s not all about the game. In fact, you’ll be surprised at how many people watch the big game for other reasons. Some people just love watching the commercials that companies pay millions of dollars to air. Maybe it’s to hang with friends and family to drink, eat, and have a great time. And one big one is, of course, the Halftime performance.
Past Performers That Stood Out
There’s no doubt that the NFL has had some great performers grace the field of the Big Game. Some of the biggest artists to play Halftime include Michael Jackson, Prince. Bruno Mars, Bruce Springsteen, Katy Perry, the Rolling Stones, Beyoncé, the Who, Madonna, Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Janet Jackson and U2.
What About This Artist? Why Haven’t They Played?
The NFL has fans from all over the world. Every fan is different. And everyone has different tastes in music. So, when an artist plays the Super Bowl Halftime show, many will love it. Many will question why that artist was offered the opportunity to perform. This always sparks the question every year…what popular, worldwide artist has major success and would put on a great show? On top of that, who would offer a never-before-seen performance that would captivate the entire stadium?
And let me tell you, the list could go on for days if you were to think about it. But, there are those key artists — who you know for a fact — would just kill it when they hit the stage for the Big Game.
Since the NFL has teamed up with Jay-Z and his company to find artists to do the Halftime show, according to an article by Business Insider, this has changed the entire “scouting” process for the Halftime performance. I’d even say that in the next few years, we probably won’t get a rocky-heavy or metal band. It will most likely be hip-hop, pop, and R&B artists. This isn’t a bad thing, but there are many rock artists who definitely would leave a lasting impression if allowed to play.
Here are some artists that we’d love to see play the Halftime show in the future.
