There have been 57 Super Bowl Halftime shows, the first was in 1967 with the Green Bay Packers facing this year’s champs the Kansas City Chiefs, the show consisted of marching college bands and didn’t last 29 minutes. It was a basic show that was entertaining for it’s time. No razzle dazzle and no big name stars. That was pretty standard until the 80’s when the halftime show got bigger and bigger and doubling the usual allotted halftime of 13 minutes.
Things have gotten bigger
Now Super Bowl Halftimes are a full fledged show with all the biggest stars vying for a chance to perform on the world’s biggest stage. Ironically, the performers are not paid much at all to perform, they do it for maximum exposure and of course the knowledge of letting the world know that they are Huge Stars worthy of the Super Bowl.
So which halftime shows are considered to be the best? Well the folks at Billboard have weighed in with their top shows and it’s hard to argue with the list.
Judge for yourself!
