10 of the greatest Super Bowl halftime performances

It brings out both the sporting and music elite in one huge spectacle. However, it’s the halftime show rather than the game itself that steals the spotlight. In 2018 alone, 103.4 million people tuned in to see Justin Timberlake (more viewers than the game itself!). Never shy to a bit of controversy, this year’s halftime show has been subject to its fair share with many artists rumoured to have boycotted the event in the name of politics and in support of Colin Kaepernick. However with Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi headlining this year I am sure we are in for another showstopper...

In celebration of this afternoon’s Super Bowl halftime show, Remix counts down the top 10 greatest halftime shows of all time.

4. COLDPLAY 2016

Again met with controversy Beyoncé debuted a blank panther inspired ‘formation’ performance which could have stolen the show. However Coldplay’s colourful performance promoting peace and love ultimately took centre stage.
