The Super Bowl: It's got something to do with...sports? Something like that.

More importantly, it's also the most-watched live television event of the year, during which one artist (or several, as in recent years) make their way to the center of a stadium to impress the entire world with a show-stopping halftime show.

While the halftime show started off as a somewhat chill mini-concert (who could forget 1967's University of Arizona Symphonic Marching Band?), the short space of time in between the football game has gone on to become one of the most coveted 12-minute performance slots of all time over the past twenty years.

From Diana Ross exiting the stadium in a helicopter in 1996 to 2004's wardrobe malfunction heard 'round the world between Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake to Katy Perry, Lenny Kravitz and Missy Elliott teaming up to unleash their Prismatic power upon the world last year, today's top performers have truly brought the goods to the turf.

This year, Coldplay hit the stage at Super Bowl 50, along with Beyonce and Bruno Mars, too.
