Take A Quick Look At Halftime Shows: The Past 15 years

The Superbowl Halftime Show has become an iconic display over the years. The performances have showcased talented musicians at some of their best and worst moments. Some of these things, such as the 2004 Janet Jackson incident, are remembered more than the score of the game or even the song being performed. There is plenty of information out there listing the past performers of the Halftime Shows, all the way back to the beginning. I chose to get the information right from the horse’s mouth and went to NFL.com. That page also has every aspect of the halftime shows broken down bit by bit. If you are curious who sang the national anthem in a particular year or things of the like, I suggest giving it a look.
