Many people were anticipating pop star Lady Gaga Super Bowl LI halftime showdown Sunday, hoping it would be a memorable performance that would add her to the list of all the greats. The 30-year-old singer revealed during a press conference Thursday that her show would be about “equality” and “inclusion."

The New Yorker whose real name is Stefani Germanotta is a supporter of gay rights and launched an anti-bullying foundation in 2012. “The only statements that I’ll be making during the halftime show are the ones that I’ve been consistently making throughout my career,” Gaga said. “I believe in a passion for inclusion. I believe in the spirit of equality, and that the spirit of this country is one of love and compassion and kindness. My performance will uphold those philosophies.”

“I want to, more than anything, create a moment that everyone that’s watching will never forget,” she added.

Ahead of Gaga's highly-anticipated performance, here are five of the best Super Bowl halftime shows of all time:

1. Michael Jackson (1993)

Jackson performed “We Are the World” with a children’s choir, then did “Heal the World” as a large globe mounted in the middle of the stage. He also did “Billy Jean” and did his signature moonwalk.

2. Janet Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Jessica Simpson, Kid Rock, Nelly and P. Diddy (2004)

Jackson took the stage with countless dancers giving the audience a spectacular performance; Diddy had a sea of smoke on the stage; and Nelly performed his club hit banger, “Hot in Here.” But the most memorable moment was when Justin Timberlake ripped off Janet’s boob covering and we saw a bit of nip.

3. Prince (2007)

Many people deemed this to be one of the best Super Bowl halftime performances ever. Prince had a dancing marching band and countless ladies dancing in stiletto heels as he performed “We Will Rock You,” “Let’s Go Crazy,” and other hits. However, what did it for most was his performance in the pouring rain as he performed “Purple Rain.”

4. Katy Perry, Lenny Kravitz and Missy Elliott (2015)

Perry's halftime performance, which included a giant mechanical Tiger and dancing sharks, was the most-watched halftime show in history with 118.5 million viewers. When she bought out Missy Elliott the crowd went wild, mainly because Elliott had been out of the limelight for some time.

5. Coldplay, Beyoncé and Bruno Mars (2016)

Beyonce performed "Formation" from her latest album "Lemonade," with a group of black female dancers. After her controversial performance, critics said she was against law enforcement, but the singer later explained she was simply against police brutality. She brought along Bruno Mars and Coldplay for the show.
