Super Bowl Sunday: Top 3 Halftime Performances in History

Celebrate American Culture on Super Bowl Sunday | Goodwill Car Donations

Celebrate American Culture on Super Bowl Sunday!

If you think that football fans are the only ones who flock to the stadium or gather around their TV sets on Super Bowl Sunday, think again. Many Americans spend the day going to Super Bowl parties for that seven-layer dip and watching the Super Bowl halftime show. What was once a segment for a college marching band is now a nationally televised pop concert where the world’s biggest entertainers get a chance to solidify their legacy for 15 minutes.

Through the years, the Super Bowl halftime shows have featured different eras of music. Besides requiring as much preparation as the Grammys, each star-filled performance is a cohesive whole comprised of various elements that celebrate American culture. Goodwill Car Donations invites you to look back at the top 3 best Super Bowl halftime shows in history.

  1. Michael Jackson (1993)

The King of Pop started it all. Michael Jackson’s performance at the Super Bowl in 1993 put an end to the college marching band era as we know it. Everybody sang along as he did “We Are the World” with a children’s choir — a defining moment of his career. Although he didn’t go deep into his huge catalog, who could forget the massive globe in the middle of the stage as he performed “Heal the World” for his dramatic finale?

  1. Prince (2007)

While Prince’s Super Bowl XLI halftime show wasn’t as extravagant as the others, it brought the house down in 2007. The Purple One was in the middle of a stage that was shaped in the symbol of the “Artist Formerly Known As Prince” as he opened with Queen’s “We Will Rock You.” He then switched gears to “Let’s Go Crazy.”

No one realized how badly they needed to hear Prince backed by the Florida A&M brass marching band until he performed a new arrangement of “Baby I’m a Star.” He took the audience on a musical journey that showcases the history of halftime shows past. However, what placed Prince’s show as the greatest halftime performance of all time was his guitar solo from “Purple Rain,” which he did under a torrential Florida downpour.

  1. Beyoncé

The Queen Bey has a stage presence unlike any other musician in her generation. Her performance was fierce, bold, and flawless from beginning to end. Beyoncé burst onto the stage with “Crazy in Love” and threw down her dance moves after an acapella version of “Love on Top.”

The audience was hysterical when Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams went on stage for a surprise Destiny’s Child reunion. The trio performed “Bootylicious,” “Single Ladies,” and “Independent Women.”
