The Super Bowl halftime show is quite the gig. With 150 million people tuning in, it is one of the largest audiences that an artist or band will ever have the opportunity to perform for. It can totally make or break your career – just ask Janet Jackson! This weekend, the Super Bowl is back. Justin Timberlake will be taking the stage again. We are super excited to see him perform – he will definitely be the highlight of the event for us. In anticipation of the big day, we are going to rank the Super Bowl halftime performances – here are the 7 best and worst!
Best: Shania Twain, No Doubt and Sting
Shania Twain headlined the 2003 Super Bowl halftime show. She was in the midst of a mini-comeback at the time. She hadn’t released an album since 1997’s Come On Over and she had finally released an album a year earlier titled Up! She rocked the stage in a miniskirt, thigh-high boots, a bejeweled bra, a black cape and a ton of bling. Her confidence on stage was also remarkable. It was like she had never taken a break from the spotlight. Having No Doubt and Sting perform was also a great idea. Gwen Stefani brought a lot of great energy to her performance as well. She wore one of her trademark tummy tops and, along with her band No Doubt, they performed one of their biggest hits, “Just a Girl.” No doubt then left the stage, but Stefani stuck around to join Sting in singing the police hit, “Message in a Bottle.”
