Judging the hottest Super Bowl Halftime show pictures is a tough job, but somebody's got to do it. Deciding on what's sexier, Keith Richards and friends clanking their old bones around on stage or Katy Perry doing, well, anything was not as difficult as you would think. Also, as you might imagine, most of the hottest pictures are of the female performers. No, actually, all of the hottest pictures are of the female performers. Sorry Bruno Mars. The most difficult part of this job was narrowing down an entire performance into one photo.

The Super Bowl Halftime show is a big show. About 115 million people tune into the performance. That's a lot of people watching, so you go in expecting something big. These performers give it their all and, almost always, the females really show off the sexy, particularly considering that males are still the target audience (even though some numbers suggest upwards of 47% of viewers are female). In the process, we've had to cut out some really amazing photos and some really disgusting ones. With so many cameras flicking, you expect to see some bad photos, but it's pretty remarkable how many terrible angles, awkward poses and horrifying facial expressions are captured… Isn't that right Beyoncé? But that's not what this list is about. We're celebrating only the hot photos here.

You might think that having the chance to go back and sort through all these photos of such beautiful women was the best part of this activity, but it was getting to rewatch these performances as a whole that was the real treat. When you watch these things live, you miss so many of the subtleties. In each performance, from the very beginning, there is some really weird stuff going on. From strange costume choices, weird sets and unique background dancers, a Super Bowl Halftime show has it all. It's the people who decide on these oddities that are the true heroes. Like whoever decided on, built and then followed through with putting Katy Perry on a giant frickin lion, you sir are a gentleman and a scholar. Your work will always be appreciated. Here are the 15 hottest Super Bowl Halftime pics.

Sorry, Beyoncé. How could we not include at least one of the bad shots? You take so many great ones that you have to allow us to jump on these rare opportunities. This is a magnificent shot. Forget all the other stuff, this is a true piece of artwork. We often wonder, during our frequent long looks at this photo, what lyric was she singing at this moment? What was the motivation for this pose? It's a mid-action shot like this that reminds us of how much movement was going on during this show. Stomping, growling, grunting, yelling, it was all very forceful. It's no wonder that there were so many unflattering stills. Listen Beyoncé. We hate to be the ones to tell you this. You’re one of the most beautiful people on the planet, but this is a horrible picture.
