One of the most anticipated moments of the Super Bowl is without a doubt the halftime show, which Rihanna headlined this year after a seven-year absence from music, and expectations were high as the Barbadian was expected to give one of the best events, unlike others that left a lot to be desired and which we will tell you about in a moment.
The 2023 Super Bowl halftime had captured the attention of American football locals and strangers alike and had all it took to become one of the most successful shows, unlike others that passed without pain or glory, or that followed events that made history have shaped, were a great disappointment at halftime, like that of Michael Jackson, which was a landmark and standard for many generations.

Super Bowl XXVI with Gloria Estefan
Perhaps not many remember that at one point it seemed like a great idea to mix the Christmas theme with this sport and even Gloria Estefan’s talent couldn’t handle that terrible combination.
In 1992, there was Christmas music at halftime, then Olympic figure skaters Brian Boitano and Dorothy Hamill took part. In the end, singer Gloria Estefan finished a show no one remembers, and maybe that’s because Michael Jackson did his thing for the next event to erase everything that had happened in previous years.
Super Bowl XXXIV with Christina Aguilera
No one doubts Christina Aguilera’s talent, but combined with Disney and Enrique Iglesias? That’s right, the show was boring for fans of this sport.
In the end, while it contained positive messages about the earth, the future and diversity, it wasn’t glamorous.
Super Bowl XLVIII with Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake
There will be those who remember that halftime show but want to forget it, and it so happens that these famous artists gave a show that went down in history for the choreography of “Rock Your Body,” which Justin was a part of of the singer’s clothes ripped off Janet Jackson.
The before and after of the celebrity incident was forgotten.
Super Bowl XLVIII with Bruno Mars
Fans of this sport and lovers of contemporary music once again had high expectations of a singer, this time Bruno Mars.
The singer was at the peak of his career but even with that he failed to deliver what was expected, despite showing his skill on the drums and having the presence of Red Hot Chilli Peppers he failed to put on an epic show.
Super Bowl LIII with Maroon 5
SpongeBob and Adam Levine, what could go wrong? Just that. California band Maroon 5 tried to reach the public, but it was boring and disappointing.
Even the performances of Travis Scott, Big Boi and even SpongeBob couldn’t fit together and it was considered by many to be the worst show in history.
