Every Super Bowl Halftime Performance From 1993-2023

We’ll admit it, when we think of the Super Bowl, the halftime performers always steal the show in our minds. Sure, that might be an unpopular opinion amongst true football fans who actually tune in to watch the big game, but sports fan or not, there’s no denying the fact that the headliners are the ones so many people look forward to watching, and who garner the most attention post-show.

From Beyoncé to Janet Jackson to Prince and the Rolling Stones, there have been some pretty incredible acts entertaining the Super Bowl crowd (and the roughly 100 million TV viewers watching at home) over the years.

This year, Rihanna is promising another incredible show. “We did a pretty good job at narrowing it down,” the singer said of the setlist for her performance during an Apple Music press conference, per Variety. “There’s probably been about 39 versions of the setlist right now. We’re on our 39th. Every little change counts.”

The “Love on the Brain” singer also mentioned what components were crucial for her to represent. “Representing for my country, Barbados. Representing for Black women everywhere. That’s really important,” she said.

As we prepare for Riri’s big show on Sunday, let’s take a peek at some of the most iconic artists that have performed during the Super Bowl halftime performance (Warning: you will get severe nostalgic vibes).
