The event has been headlined by acts such as The Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder, Bruce Springsteen, Diana Ross, Aerosmith, Paul McCartney, and U2.

However, over the past decade there has been controversy during certain performances. In 2004, Janet Jackson suffered a ‘wardrobe malfunction’ and during Madonna’s show in 2012, English artist M.I.A. stuck her middle finger towards the camera. The gesture prompted the NFL to file a lawsuit against the singer.

There’s been speculation that the NFL will start charging artists to perform at the half-time show because of the huge exposure the event offers musicians.¬†Rolling Stone¬†published a statement that claimed that band’s sales increase by at least 150% – 400%.

The NFL has yet to confirm or deny these rumours.

The final two teams haven’t yet been finalised for the Super Bowl. The Green Bay Packers, Seattle Seahawks, New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts are all still in the running for the final.
