Would not have guessed N*Sync. Not much overlap between their core demographic and the one that usually watches the Superbowl... my mind even went to boy bands briefly when I was trying to think of acts to guess, but immediately it said "nah.." and moved on.

lol, it was actually a pretty good show. Granted I was 13, but Aerosmith, NSync and Brittney Spears did a medley of Aerosmith songs. Looking back it was practically sacrilegious, but at the time it seemed epic.

You gotta remember the halftime show isn't necessarily for the football fans, its for the people that might tune in to the game briefly but watch band/performer.

Was really hoping this one went all the way back to the "Up With People" days. :-)

I tried Diana Ross and couldn't figure out why it didn't work. I can't believe she was there way back in '96. I'm getting too soon old.

You should accept bono for U2. He's the most known member and the one that gathered the most attention at halftime

So then it should also accept Chris Martin, Steven Tyler, Fergie, will.i.am, Gwen Stefani, and Mick Jagger?

Really? people missed the black eyed peas? they made by far the best performance

Really? I like the BEPs, but their Super Bowl performance was pretty widely considered lackluster, and I have to agree.

I agree with samiamco. I was really looking forward to their performance, but I remember it being all over the place and chaotic. I also remember Fergie being so off, they turned off her mic. Now if we could only get Imagine Dragons to perform during the halftime show, that would be something.

I haven't watched the super bowl for the last 20-25 years. I just kept guessing popular performers. Got lucky and got 9 correct.

I, for the life of me, could not remember who performed last year. I could have sworn Coldplay was most recent. When the time came up and I saw Lady Gaga, I remembered that I boycotted the halftime show last year. Really though, of alllll the singers...

I got the Boss because that's the only time my dad ever wanted to watch the halftime show.

only 11 percent for shania twain? seeing she is only 1 of 2 performers (black eyed peas the other) to have performed during halftime of both the super bowl and the grey cup, would expect that more than 11 percent would have successfully responded with shania twain

Nothing personal, but I think you overestimate the number of people outside of Canada who pay any attention at all to the Grey Cup. I live not far from Canada, but didn't even know they bothered with a halftime show for it, and couldn't even name more than 1 or 2 teams.

Is this an important thing in the U.S?

It is, though getting increasingly ridiculous.

Yes, the Super Bowl halftime show. It can take even good music and make it look rushed and pretentious with horrible sound and execution.
