Super Bowl Halftime Performers

We thought we would step away from our wedding topic to mention Music Star performers of Super Bowl halftimes. When researching Super Bowl halftimes, we found it interesting that the first musician of the “Rock Star” status to perform during the Super Bowl halftime in the modern era was NKOTB (New Kids On The Block) in 1991.

The 2015 Super Bowl halftime show was the highest-rated/viewed halftime show of all-time. More than 120 million households watched Katy Perry and Lenny Kravitz perform in 2015. Because of the viewership, the NFL investigated the thought of artists playing to perform at halftime because of the vast exposure.

Did you know that halftime performers don’t actually get paid for performing?
