NBC is your go-to source to catch the Big Game live Sunday, February 4th at 6:30/5:30c.
The Big Game isn’t just fun for the avid sports fan. For those who love sheer entertainment, there are the over-the-top commercials. And for music lovers, there’s the much anticipated halftime performance. While we all have our favorites, we compiled some of the best halftime performances from Big Game past plus how to view this year’s act.
He isn’t called the King of Pop for nothing. From that halting stare that lasted almost 2 minutes to the incredible dance moves, Michael Jackson brought the house down. Up until this point, most halftime shows included musical-troupes and marching bands. With his Big Game performance, Jackson set the tone for celebrity acts by performing hit after hit.
Can we declare Prince’s appearance at the Big Game in 2007 the best halftime performance ever? Not only did he play the guitar with expert precision but he did it all in the rain, while playing Purple Rain! It really doesn’t get any cooler than that.
A force to be reckoned with, Beyoncé brought her signature fierce moves to the Big Game stage. Who could forget the all-girl band, the pyrotechnics and high-energy moves? As if that wasn’t exciting enough she gave us a mini Destiny’s Child reunion!
Talk about worlds colliding. The Big Game in 2001 brought together the likes of Aerosmith, ‘N SYNC, Britney Spears, Nelly and Mary J. Blige to create a veritable pop explosion! The boy band of the moment, ‘N Sync opened the show with an explosive “Bye Bye Bye” and was topped off with a group performance of Aerosmith’s “Walk This Way”.
