The Friday Five: Super Bowl Halftime Shows

It’s Super Bowl time once again and while the ads are fun (remember the Tim Tebow one with the puppies?) the halftime show is what we’re all watching for…right?  Coldplay is set to perform this year, along with some special guests.   In honor of Sunday’s game, we’re throwing it back to our five favorite halftime shows!  Which reminds us:  how have Backstreet Boys not done a halftime show?   Can someone get on that for 2017?

1. *NSYNC, Britney Spears, & Aerosmith – 2001
THE GREATEST HALFTIME SHOW OF ALL TIME.

2. NKOTB – 1991
This one’s for the children.

3. Shania Twain & No Doubt – 2003
Not sure what the theme was here, but what’s not to like?  Shania Twain?  Good.  No Doubt?  Good.  Let’s go football fans!

4. Justin Timberlake & Janet Jackson – 2004
If they had just had *NSYNC perform again, that whole wardrobe malfunction wouldn’t have happened, just saying.

5. Beyonce & Destiny’s Child – 2013
Like JT briefly acknowledged *NSYNC at the VMAs in 2013, Beyonce brought back Destiny’s Child for a hot second at the halftime show the same year.
