.
The Super Bowl halftime show stage has seen some of the most memorable performances in music history and a few we'd like to erase from our brains.This year, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar and Mary J. Blige will be providing the halftime entertainment. The five music legends have combined for a total of 43 Grammy Awards and produced numerous hit songs, so they are expected to deliver stellar performances when the Bengals and Rams head to their locker rooms.Where will they land on the spectrum? That remains to be seen. For now, let's take a look back at the best and worst halftime shows in Super Bowl history.MORE:Best Super Bowl halftime showsMichael Jackson (1993)Jackson appeared on stage andstood there for nearly two minutes, driving fans into a frenzy. TheKing of Pop, indeed.His set list included"Billie Jean," "Black or White," "We Are the World," and "Heal the World," so there may have been a slight sense of disappointment considering he didn't feature more of his uptempo R.A. Dickey Jersey hits. Still, Jackson deserves credit for changing how we perceived what a halftime show could truly be.Prince (2007)Leave it to Prince to make it feel like a torrential downpour was part of the plan. He sang and cycled through guitars as only he could and had the crowd hitting the high notes of "Purple Rain" before he allowed that silly football game to follow his concert.Other performersdeserve to be in the conversation for the best Super Bowl halftime show ever, but man, good luck arguing against Prince.Beyonce (2013)Visuals galore! Sparks are flying out of that guitar! Wait, Destiny's Child has arrived!She's doing the "Single Ladies" dance!Energy beams flowed right out of television sets and into living rooms that night. We were one with the Beyonce.Jennifer Lopez and Shakira (2020)Imagine complaining about this show because a couple of attractive women dared to shake their hips. .J-Lo and Shakira celebrated Latin culture and electrified the audience. Just a dynamic duo dominating like LeBron James and Kyrie Irving in the 2016 NBA Finals.Worst Super Bowl halftime showsNew Kids on the Block (1991)Don't blame New Kids on the Block for this. The boy band was stuck doing the most Disney-fied production po sible. A family-friendly show? Absolutely. Entertaining? Not at all.Look, Brian McCann Jersey if you don't let NKOTB belt out"You Got It (The Right Stuff)," then you made a serious mistake.Phil Collins, Christina Aguilera, Enrique Iglesiasand Toni Braxton (2000)Again, too much of a Mickey Mouse flavor. Allowtalented singers to perform their own songs. This isn't that hard.Unle s you were a big fan of Kangol hats and random narration, this was a swing and a mi s.The Black Eyed Peas (2011)Weird futuristic suits, bad autotune, inconsistent audio levels. There's Usher half-heartedly dancing around. Apparently Slash is doing something.Let's get it started in here? No. Stop it. Right now.Maroon 5 (2019)Cameos from Big Boi, Travis Scott and SpongeBob SquarePants yep, that happened couldn't save this Super Bowl stinker. You forgot what took place immediately after Adam Levine and Co. left the stage.Should have just played and called it a day, guys.Super Bowl halftime shows list all timeSuper BowlYearPerformer(s)I1967Universities of Arizona andGrambling University BandsII1968" Danny Santana Jersey Old Man Winter Takes a Vacation in Miami" featuring seven local Miami-area high school bandsIII1969"America Thanks" with Florida AM UniversityIV1970Carol ChanningV1971Florida AM BandVI1972"Salute to Louis Armstrong" with Ella Fitzgerald, Carol Channing, Al Hirt and U.S. Marine CorpsDrill TeamVII1973"Happine s Is..." with University of Michigan Band and Woody HermanVIII1974"A Musical America" with University of Texas BandIX1975"Tribute to Duke Ellington" with Mercer Ellington and Grambling University BandsX1976"200 Years and Just a Baby" Tribute to America's BicentennialXI1977"It's a Small World" including crowd participationfor first time with spectators waving colored placard on cueXII1978"From Paris to the Paris of America" with Tyler Apache Belles, Pete Fountain and Al HirtXIII1979"Super Bowl XIII Carnival" Salute to the Caribbean with Ken Hamilton Shane Greene Jersey and various Caribbean bandsXIV1980"A Salute to the Big Band Era" with Up with PeopleXV1981"A Mardi Gras Festival"XVI1982"A Salute to the 60's and Motown"XVII1983"KaleidoSUPERscope" (a kaleidoscope of color and sound)XVIII1984"Super Bowl XVIII's Salute to the Superstars of the Silver Screen"XIX1985"A World of Children's Dreams"XX1986"Beat of the Future"XXI1987"Salute to Hollywood's 100th Anniversary"XXII1988"Something Grand" featuring 88 grand pianos, the Rockettes and Chubby CheckerXXIII1989"Be Bop Bamboozled" featuring 3-D effectsXXIV1990"Salute to New Orleans" and 40th Anniversary of Peanuts' characters, featuring trumpeter Pete Fountain, Doug Kershaw and Irma ThomasXXV1991"A Small World Salute to 25 Years of the Super Bowl" featuring New Kids on the BlockXXVI1992"Winter Magic" including a salute to the winter season and the winter Olympics featuring Gloria Estefan, Brian Boitano and Dorothy HamillXXVII1993"Heal the World" featuring Michael JacksonXXVIII1994"Rockin Country Sunday" featuring Clint Black, Tanya Tucker, Travis Tritt, Wynonna and Naomi JuddXXIX1995"Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Forbidden Eye" featuring Tony Bennett, Patti LaBelle, Arturo Sandoval and Miami Sound MachineXXX1996Diana Ro sXXXI1997"Blues Brothers Bash" featuring Dan Aykroyd, John Goodman, James Belushi, James Brown and ZZ TopXXXII1998"A Tribute to Motown's 40th Anniversary" including Boyz II Men, Smokey Robinson, Queen Latifah, Martha Reeves and The TemptationsXXXIII1999"Celebration of Soul, Salsa and Swing" featuring Stevie Wonder, Gloria Estefan, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Savion GloverXXXIV2000"A Tapestry of Nations" featuring Phil Collins, Christina Aguilera, Enrique Iglesias, and Toni BraxtonXXXV2001"The Kings of Rock and Pop" featuring Kurt Suzuki Jersey Aerosmith, *N'SYNC, Britney Spears, Mary J.
