Over the past 50 years, there have been many legendary football games played out in the Super Bowl. While the players left it all out on the field, some of the greatest musicians of all time have also given their all when they took the stage at halftime. CBS will air a two hour special Friday night called "Super Bowl's Greatest Halftime Shows," which will celebrate the best halftime performances from America's biggest game.
According to TVGuide, CBS will show some of the best halftime sets over the years and the program will also feature interviews with past performers. Beyoncé, Bono, Missy Elliott, Bruno Mars, Chris Martin, Paul McCartney and Katy Perry are among the artists fan will hear from. "NCIS: Los Angeles" star Chris O'Donnell will narrate the show.
The special will take viewers through the past 50 years of halftime shows, which started with humble beginnings from marching bands and eventually grew to be a spectacular event featuring artists like Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake. Halftime has had its share of memorable moments from U2's Super Bowl XXXVI performance in 2002 where they paid tribute to those who lost their lives on 9/11, to Janet Jackson's infamous wardrobe malfunction at Super Bowl XXXVII in 2004.
At Super Bowl 50, Coldplay will play and they will hope to have a performance that can be considered one of the best ever. Beyoncé will be joining the band, while there are also rumors that Bruno Mars and Jay-z could also make an appearance.
