Because of tomorrow's game, we present the half-time presentations that have marked the history of the Super Bowl
Tomorrow the Super Bowl will be played, an event that goes far beyond football. Advertising and the part-time show are always two of the most talked about events. This year Marroon 5 will be the band in charge of entertaining the public during the half-time break of the game. Many other artists rejected this presentation in support of Colin Kaepernick, the player kneeling during the anthem at the beginning of the game to denounce racism in the United States. We do today, then, a recount of the most memorable presentations.
Leer en español: Las presentaciones de medio tiempo más memorables del Super Bowl
Michael Jackson (1993)
The pop king stood quietly for about two minutes while the Pasadena, California stadium went mad at his presence. With a very typical attire of him and that later Beyoncé would also honor in a half-time show of the same event, Michael Jackson sang a medley of his greatest hits that included "Billie Jean", "Black or White" and "Heal the World "accompanied by some children who ran by his side to end up in the cave.
Diana Ross (1996)
Famous for having made four costume changes in just 12 minutes of the Super Bowl halftime, Diana Ross made the audience go crazy singing her biggest hits like "You Keep Me Hanging On" and "Baby Love," to end with its always current and never old fashioned "I Will Survive."
The great Prince played four electric guitars during a storm at the Miami stadium in 2007. He sang classics such as "Purple Rain" and covers of Queen, the Foo Fighters, and Bob Dylan as if their songs had not been enough for the public, who was crazy with his mastery on stage in the middle of the rain.
Madonna, CeeLo Green and LMFAO (2012)
Nor could the pop queen: the great Madonna. On this occasion, he sang with the also great CeeLo Green with whom he combined his black sequins attire. A gospel choir also accompanied them when they sang together, and Madonna also made a costume change and wore a Cleopatra costume that left everyone with their mouths open.
Coldplay, Beyoncé and Bruno Mars (2016)
For the 50th version of the Super Bowl, we only knew it would be a Coldplay show. However, Bruno Mars and Beyoncé gave the surprise on stage with the song "Formation." Beyoncé was dressed in an outfit that paid homage to Michael Jackson. They did a dance battle between her and her dancers and Bruno Mars. A show to remember.
Lady Gaga (2017)
Following Beyoncé and his tribute to the king of pop combined with a dance battle was not going to be easy. Only Lady Gaga would measure up to that. And the result was the most watched Super Bowl halftime show so far. Lady Gaga fell from the sky in this 2017 show and then jumped as she sang "God bless America" in the most American event of the year.
