1. Prince (2007)
Known for his bold and provocative performances, Prince was a strange and unexpected choice. The male vocalist brought a bunch of his own hit songs and many other artists including “Let’s Go Crazy”, “Baby I’m a Star”, “Proud Mary”, “All Along The Watchtower” and “Best Of You “. However, the most explosive night is the last song “Purple Rain”. With the help of the sudden rain, purple light shone on the stage, causing the raindrops to turn purple like the name of the song that created a visual effect that couldn’t be more beautiful and impressive. . So even though 11 years have passed, it is still possible to ask each other every Super Bowl season whether there is any screen to overcome Prince?
2. Beyoncé (2013)
Appearing from a fuzzy smoke-filled stage, female divas brought a booming stage to the top of their hits including “Love On Top”, “Crazy In Love”, “End Of Time” and “Baby Boy “Before Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams jumped from the stage and joined Beyoncé for Destiny’s Child’s unexpected reunion with the songs “Bootylicious”, “Independent Women” and “Single Ladies”. The singer ended the performance with a very deep “Halo” – an end that couldn’t be more beautiful.
3. U2 (2002)
Less than 5 months after the horrific tragedy of September 11, 2001, U2 brought to the heart-shaped stage from its Elevation tour. The legendary band opened with “Beautiful Day” but the memorial performance to the victims of 9/11 really attracted and moved the audience. During the “Where The Streets Have No Name” performance, the stage screen showed the names of all the victims killed in the attack and Bono ended up opening one side of his jacket and revealing American flag picture inside.
4. Madonna (2012)
The pop queen led her army including LMFAO, Nicki Minaj, M.I.A., and Cee Lo Green and completely “invaded” the Super Bowl stage. Madonna appeared on the throne in a Roman army and performed “Vogue” and “Music” before LMFAO participated and performed “Party Rock Anthem” and “Sexy And I Know It”. Although the singer has sometimes slipped while dancing on high heel boots, Madonna continues to burn the stage with her newly released song “Gimme All Your Luvin” along with M.I.A. and Nicki Minaj. The female vocalist ended the performance with no better performance when she sang with Cee Lo Green for a number of songs, including “Like A Prayer”.
