When it comes to the Super Bowl, everyone spends time talking about the game but we all know that the game is not the only thing that matters. The decision of who is performing at the halftime show is one that is debated all year long and, while disappointment is normally felt once the name is announced, there is no doubting that there have been some outstanding performances at Super Bowls.
Whether you like moments that are emotional, moments that are entertaining, or moments with some boobs, the halftime show has featured a lot over its history and that is not going to change any time soon. With all eyes watching, you can also expect some surprises, but for the network’s sake, let’s hope that only refers to surprise artists and not nudity.
Last year, Katy Perry showed that theatrics and even sharks belong on the big stage. What the most memorable performance at the halftime is going to depend on what type of music you enjoy, but the effort that clearly goes into the performances is usually worthy of your attention. Here are the 10 most memorable moments to come out of the halftime shows so far.

One of the toughest moments in the history of America came on September 11th, 2001. The attack left the nation stunned and searching for answers. Even sports took a brief hiatus as everyone tried to really breath in the gravity of what had just occurred. When the sports world continued and the Super Bowl became a logical end point again, the decision of who was going to be the halftime show seemed more important than ever.
1 Janet Jackson's Boob
There is no way that this list would be complete without the infamous Janet Jackson ‘nip slip.’ While there is no way to ever be sure if this was a planned stunt or not, it certainly stunned the world when millions of people got a little closer than expected. For those unaware, Jackson was finishing up the song "Rock Your Body" on stage with Justin Timberlake, when Timberlake reached over and ripped off part of her dress, exposing her breast. Remember, this is live TV! Given that the nip slip happened at the very end of the song, you can imagine how it looked intentional. CBS, who was hosting the game, was fined $555,000 for the stunt and a 5-second delay was implemented on all future 'live' showings.
