There have been some truly memorable Super Bowl halftime show performances throughout the year, marking a highlight of the show for many viewers. Some of the most recognizable entertainers like Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Prince, Michael Jackson and Madonna graced the stage on the big night for football fanatics.
But, surprisingly, there are a lot of singers and bands who didn’t play the show which we believe would not only bring huge numbers but also deliver an amazing performance.
Here are eight musicians we think should play the Superbowl halftime show.
8 Miley Cyrus and Dolly Parton
Many know the bond between Miley Cyrus and Dolly Parton, as Parton is Cyrus’ godmother and mentor, and recognize the star power the duo have together as they got to see the pair perform as hosts of the recent Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party.
We’d love to see either singer get a full halftime spot, but seeing them perform together would further showcase their magic as a duo. Featuring Dolly’s signature songs like “Jolene” and Miley’s spunk with songs like her latest entry “Flowers,” the show would have something for all ages and strike a nice balance between classy and wild, having viewers wow in the stands and at home. what will happen when they take the stage together.
7 Harry Styles
With new acts at halftime, we can’t believe Harry Styles, or even One Direction, never took first place at the Super Bowl. As one of the most in-demand and thrilled performers with a legion of fans right now, Styles would be a perfect choice not just for skyrocketing numbers, but for a big show.
Styles delivers an ode to ’70s classics with some of his most popular tracks while keeping things fresh with his electrifying onstage charisma in glitzy outfits and audience interactions. He’s a born artist that you can’t help but fall in love with.
6 Jonas Brothers
The Jonas Brothers were once one of the biggest bands in the world and even after a long break they have returned to this label, showing the dedication of their fans and the talent that the three brothers possess. The Jonas Brothers are another example, similar to Harry Styles, who have us scratching our heads in confusion as to why they never got the halftime slot. They’ve performed for other events, like the 2022 Cowboys Thanksgiving Day Halftime Show, proving they’re more than capable of handling the job.
With explosive songs that will have you jumping off your couch like “Sucker” and “Burnin’ Up”, the Brothers know how to make the audience feel like it’s a good time. They might even perform their oft-overlooked song “Pom Poms,” which would be a perfect Super Bowl anthem.
5 Elton John
While this legend has already completed the North American leg of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, we’d love to see Elton John make a return exception for the halftime show. As a music legend, it’s unlikely that John has ever graced the Super Bowl stage.
While garnering accolades, many of the halftime artists of recent years have been for younger audiences, but John appeals to all ages with his magnificent hits like “Rocket Man” and “Tiny Dancer.” We might also see some of his most famous collaborations take center stage with him, like Lady Gaga and Eminem – artists who both performed at the halftime show.
The “goddess of pop” may have sung the US national anthem in 1999 at Super Bowl XXXIII, but Cher deserves so much more – her own halftime spot. As a legend of both screen and stage, she’s another example of an icon who, surprisingly, never played the halftime show.
With dance-pop anthems like “Believe” and “If I Could Turn Back Time,” she would have any viewers up, like always. And even in her 70s, Cher has proven herself to be as lively and dazzling as ever, completing her seventh tour, Here we go againjust a few years ago.
After seeing Lady Gaga’s 2017 halftime show where she launched into the arena and swung on a pair of wires, we couldn’t help but think what the singer P!nk could do with his stunts and stunts if given the chance. Not only does this powerhouse performer have an incredible lineup of songs that could bring the heat like “So What”, “Get the Party Started” and “Just Like Fire”, but she would give us a halftime show like we never did. we’ve never seen it with its gravity-defining stunts.
The show could also offer collaborative moments with singer Nate Ruess returning to the stage to duet the ballad “Just Give Me a Reason” or a moment of female empowerment with the Red Mill! hit, “Lady Marmalade,” featuring Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim, and Mýa.
2 pit bull
When the Super Bowl LIV halftime show was co-hosted by Jennifer Lopez and Shakira, many thought Pitbull would join them on stage to celebrate Latino culture and sing songs with the two artists like “On the Floor.” , but Pitbull was largely absent from the night – only performing at the NFL Tailgate Tropicale concert to kick off the evening.
However, we think Pitbull deserves his own halftime show, with mega stadium hits that will get the crowd excited and dancing, like “Timber”, “Fireball”, “Feel This Moment” and many more. Pitbull’s songs were meant for a fiery stadium show, and fans are rallying for Mr. 305 to bring the heat to an upcoming halftime show.
Another iconic band with an ongoing farewell tour dubbed the End of the Road World Tour, we’d love to see Kiss add another performance before they retire – the Super Bowl Halftime Show. Like Pitbull, the hard rock band did a pregame show in 1999, but never got the prime-time slot.
With their extreme stage antics with platform boots and makeup fireworks etched in the minds of those around the world, Kiss is a no-brainer when it comes to picking a mid-range entertainer. -time – or so you might think. They’re the perfect loud and wild band to “Rock and Roll All Nite” with football’s biggest event.
