The Super Bowl halftime show stage has seen some of the most memorable performances in music history — and a few we'd like to erase from our brains. This year, COVID-19 restrictions have presented unique challenges, but The Weeknd is ready to deliver what he hopes will be a "cinematic experience." The Canadian crooner told Billboard that he spent $7 million of his own money in order to make the Super Bowl 55 halftime show "be what he envisioned." Hey, if nothing else, you have to respect the fact that he's going all-out. Where will The Weeknd's spectacle land on the spectrum? That remains to be seen. For now, let's take a look back at the best and worst halftime shows in Super Bowl history.MORE: Super Bowl halftime show prop betsBest Super Bowl halftime showsMichael Jackson (1993)Jackson appeared on stage and stood there for nearly two minutes, driving fans into a frenzy. The King of Pop, indeed.His set list included "Billie Jean," "Black or White," "We Are the World," and "Heal the World," so there may have been a slight sense of disappointment considering he didn't feature more of his uptempo hits. Still, Jackson deserves credit for changing how we perceived what a halftime show could truly be.Prince (2007)Leave it to Prince to make it feel like a torrential downpour was part of the plan. He sang and cycled through guitars as only he could and had the crowd hitting the high notes of "Purple Rain" before he allowed that silly football game to follow his concert.Other performers deserve to be in the conversation for the best Super Bowl halftime show ever, but man, good luck arguing against Prince.Beyonce (2013)Visuals galore! Sparks are flying out of that guitar! Wait, Destiny's Child has arrived! She's doing the "Single Ladies" dance! Energy beams flowed right out of television sets and into living rooms that night. We were one with the Beyonce.Jennifer Lopez and Shakira (2020)Imagine complaining about this show because a couple of attractive women dared to shake their hips. What a bunch of dorks.J-Lo and Shakira celebrated Latin culture and electrified the audience. Just a dynamic duo dominating like LeBron James and Kyrie Irving in the 2016 NBA Finals.Worst Super Bowl halftime showsNew Kids on the Block (1991)Don't blame New Kids on the Block for this. The boy band was stuck doing the most Disney-fied production possible. A family-friendly show? Absolutely. Entertaining? Not at all.Look, if you don't let NKOTB belt out "You Got It (The Right Stuff)," then you made a serious mistake.Phil Collins, Christina Aguilera, Enrique Iglesias and Toni Braxton (2000)Again, too much of a Mickey Mouse flavor. Allow talented singers to perform their own songs. This isn't that hard.Unless you were a big fan of Kangol hats and random narration, this was a swing and a miss.The Black Eyed Peas (2011)Weird futuristic suits, bad autotune, inconsistent audio levels. There's Usher half-heartedly dancing around. Apparently Slash is doing something.Let's get it started in here? No. Stop it. Right now. Maroon 5 (2019)Cameos from Big Boi, Travis Scott and SpongeBob SquarePants — yep, that happened — couldn't save this Super Bowl stinker. You forgot what took place immediately after Adam Levine and Co. left the stage.Should have just played "Sweet Victory" and called it a day, guys.Super Bowl halftime shows list all timeSuper Bowl Year Performer(s) I 1967 Universities of Arizona and Grambling University Bands II 1968 "Old Man Winter Takes a Vacation in Miami" featuring seven local Miami-area high school bands III 1969 "America Thanks" with Florida A&M University IV 1970 Carol Channing V 1971 Florida A&M Band VI 1972 "Salute to Louis Armstrong" with Ella Fitzgerald, Carol Channing, Al Hirt and U.S. Marine Corps Drill Team VII 1973 "Happiness Is..." with University of Michigan Band and Woody Herman VIII 1974 "A Musical America" with University of Texas Band IX 1975 "Tribute to Duke Ellington" with Mercer Ellington and Grambling University Bands X 1976 "200 Years and Just a Baby" Tribute to America's Bicentennial XI 1977 "It's a Small World" including crowd participation for first time with spectators waving colored placard on cue XII 1978 "From Paris to the Paris of America" with Tyler Apache Belles, Pete Fountain and Al Hirt XIII 1979 "Super Bowl XIII Carnival" Salute to the Caribbean with Ken Hamilton and various Caribbean bands XIV 1980 "A Salute to the Big Band Era" with Up with People XV 1981 "A Mardi Gras Festival" XVI 1982 "A Salute to the 60's and Motown" XVII 1983 "KaleidoSUPERscope" (a kaleidoscope of color and sound) XVIII 1984 "Super Bowl XVIII's Salute to the Superstars of the Silver Screen" XIX 1985 "A World of Children's Dreams" XX 1986 "Beat of the Future" XXI 1987 "Salute to Hollywood's 100th Anniversary" XXII 1988 "Something Grand" featuring 88 grand pianos, the Rockettes and Chubby Checker XXIII 1989 "Be Bop Bamboozled" featuring 3-D effects XXIV 1990 "Salute to New Orleans" and 40th Anniversary of Peanuts' characters, featuring trumpeter Pete Fountain, Doug Kershaw and Irma Thomas XXV 1991 "A Small World Salute to 25 Years of the Super Bowl" featuring New Kids on the Block XXVI 1992 "Winter Magic" including a salute to the winter season and the winter Olympics featuring Gloria Estefan, Brian Boitano and Dorothy Hamill XXVII 1993 "Heal the World" featuring Michael Jackson XXVIII 1994 "Rockin Country Sunday" featuring Clint Black, Tanya Tucker, Travis Tritt, Wynonna and Naomi Judd XXIX 1995 "Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Forbidden Eye" featuring Tony Bennett, Patti LaBelle, Arturo Sandoval and Miami Sound Machine XXX 1996 Diana Ross XXXI 1997 "Blues Brothers Bash" featuring Dan Aykroyd, John Goodman, James Belushi, James Brown and ZZ Top XXXII 1998 "A Tribute to Motown's 40th Anniversary" including Boyz II Men, Smokey Robinson, Queen Latifah, Martha Reeves and The Temptations XXXIII 1999 "Celebration of Soul, Salsa and Swing" featuring Stevie Wonder, Gloria Estefan, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Savion Glover XXXIV 2000 "A Tapestry of Nations" featuring Phil Collins, Christina Aguilera, Enrique Iglesias, and Toni Braxton XXXV 2001 "The Kings of Rock and Pop" featuring Aerosmith, *N'SYNC, Britney Spears, Mary J.
