As far as Super Bowl halftime shows go, they’ve got to razzle, dazzle, sizzle and get the crowd on its feet.
As Adele endearingly said a few years back, “I’m not doing the Super Bowl…I mean, come on, that show is not about music. And I don’t really — I can’t dance or anything like that.”
The buzz this year it that superstar Jennifer Lopez is in talks to headline the big game in Miami, a city that she and fiancee, Alex Rodriguez, have strong ties to. Headlining this show would cap off an amazing year for the Latina powerhouse, after blowing critics away for her powerful performance in Hustlers, which is already generating talk of an Oscar for JLo.
Super Bowl halftime shows people still talk about
Of course, millions tune in to the Super Bowl to witness the best football teams meeting in the ultimate contest of great athletic acumen. But the rest of us watch it for the the hilarious ads and the halftime performers.
Some of the amazing acts we’ve seen over the years that still have people talking include Katy Perry and the dancing shark, Beyoncé reuniting with her Destiny’s Child bandmates, Lady Gaga appearing to leap from the roof of NRG Stadium, and the one and only Prince rocking out to “Purple Rain” in the pouring rain.
