Football, you either love it or you hate it right? But when it comes to the Super Bowl everyone loves it. You don’t have to be a football fan to watch it or even enjoy it. Some people (apparently) watch it because they enjoy the commercials, others patiently wait until half time to watch the show. During this year’s Super Bowl, Twitter was full of jokes about there being a football game in the middle of a Beyonce concert. A feeling shared by a lot of people every single year, no matter who is performing. So here’s a list of the top 10 best concerts featured in the middle of a football game.
10. Michael Jackson (1993)
It’s been 20 years since Michael Jackson performed at the super bowl. For the first few seconds he just stands on the stage and does nothing while the crowd goes crazy. He doesn’t have to do anything to get a reaction from the crowd though; he’s Michael Jackson, that’s enough. For twelve and a half minutes the audience gets to watch Jackson perform a medley of his songs including Jam, Billie Jean, Black or White, and Heal The World. There have been a lot of great half time shows but none of them will live up to this one.
