I know I’ve already praised Lady Gaga for her performance at the Super Bowl this year, but after reviewing a long list of half time acts from the past two decades of one of the biggest sports events around, I really think we should take a look at the performances from 1993 and 2016 and carefully compare: 12 whole minutes of the King of pop himself, Michael Jackson, vs a 12 minute medley of Beyoncé, Bruno Mars and Coldplay. Although Queen B’s homage to Jackson’s ’93 outfit was quite on point, I still feel that there’s only one act that really stands out. Take a look for yourself below, who do you think reigns the half time?
