Some people believe that the Super Bowl Halftime Show is more important than the actual game itself. It is a badge of honor for playing the show, as NFL only chooses some few renowned musicians in the show, such as Michael Jackson, the Rolling Stones, Beyonce, Tom Petty, Prince, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. Although all of them are not legends, most of them are. The artists will play a 15-minute medley in the middle of a football match.
