Most talked about Super Bowl halftime artists: Prince, Lady Gaga, more

Some would argue that the real show on Sunday started when the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles took break at the midway point of Super Bowl LVII. That’s the time for the Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show.

Fans unite to sing ‘Stay’ ahead of Rihanna’s Super Bowl halftime show

Nothing brings people together quite like music. This year, Rihanna took the NFL’s biggest stage.

In a 17-minute performance, in which she revealed she is pregnant with her second child, Rihanna rolled out a slew of hits. She sang “B Better Have My Money,” “Where Have You Been,” “Only Girl (In the World),” “We Found Love,” “Rude Boy,” “Work,” “Wild Thoughts,” “Pour It Up,” “All of the Lights,” “Run This Town,” “Umbrella” and “Diamonds.” The performance lit up social media.

Following her highly anticipated return to live music just days away, let’s take a short trip down memory lane and admire entertaining Super Bowl performances from years past.

Starting with No. 10, here are the most searched halftime performers since 2004, according to Google Trends:

Lady Gaga, Super Bowl LI (2017)

Songs performed: “God Bless America”/”This Land Is Your Land,” “Poker Face,” “Born This Way,” “Telephone,” “Just Dance,” “Million Reasons,” “Bad Romance”

Notable moment: Everything’s bigger in Texas.- and Lady Gaga didn’t waste any time exemplifying that sentiment. She started the performance by singing “God Bless America” and “This Land Is Your Land” on the roof of the stadium with red, white and blue drones flying behind her. But here’s the big part: Gaga ended the medley by reciting the last line of the Pledge of Allegiance, then jumped (attached to a harness) off the roof, landing on a pillar placed on the field.

Bruno Mars, Super Bowl XLVIII (2014) and Super Bowl 50 (2016)

MetLife Stadium (East Rutherford, New Jersey) and Levi’s Stadium (Santa Clara, California)

Songs performed: “Billionaire” (sung by a children’s choir), “Locked Out of Heaven,” “Treasure,” “Runaway Baby,” “Give It Away” (with the Red Hot Chili Peppers), “Just the Way You Are” and, in 2016, “Uptown Funk”

Notable moment: After the show opened with a children’s choir singing a cover of Bruno Mars’ song “Billionaire,” he kicked off his performance with a drum solo and paid tribute to his late mother by putting her name across a heart on the drum kit.

Mars closed the performance by singing “Just the Way You Are” with the biggest fireworks display in Super Bowl history overhead.

In his second Super Bowl appearance, Mars was a special guest for the headliner, Coldplay, and performed a dance break alongside Beyonce.

Dr. Dre, Super Bowl LVI (2022)

SoFi Stadium (Inglewood, California)

Songs performed: “The Next Episode,” “California Love,” “I Ain’t Mad at Cha,” “Still D.R.E.”

Notable moment: Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg ended the show with “Still D.R.E.,” which was released in 1999. They were joined by Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent and Eminem (along with Anderson.Paak on drums) on the stage’s roof with classic lowrider cars and a myriad of dancers on top of an LED-lit map of Compton, California. It was also the first Super Bowl halftime show to win the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Variety Special (Live).

Mary J. Blige, Super Bowl LVI (2022)

SoFi Stadium (Inglewood, California)

Songs performed: “Family Affair,” “No Drama”

Notable moment: Blige’s reflective leopard print bodysuit and matching signature thigh-high boots set the tone for her section of the show. As the only woman in a performance that featured seven artists, she provided some much-needed feminine energy.

Her show-stopping performance of “No Drama” concluded with a dramatic collapse that went viral on social media.

Prince, Super Bowl XLI (2007)

Dolphin Stadium (Miami Gardens, Florida)

Songs performed: “Let’s Go Crazy,” “Baby I’m a Star,” “Proud Mary,” “1999,” “All Along the Watchtower,” “Best of You,” “Purple Rain”

Notable moment: All of it. Seriously.

But, we’d be remiss not to point out that roughly a quarter of Prince’s 12-minute performance was fittingly reserved for “Purple Rain,” while some timely precipitation fell over South Florida.

One of the greatest halftime shows EVER.@prince’s #SBXLI performance in Miami was legendary. ☔️

Shakira, Super Bowl LIV (2020)

Hard Rock Stadium (Miami Gardens, Florida)

Songs performed: “She Wolf,” “Empire” “Ojos Asi,” “Whenever, Wherever,” “I Like It,” “Chantaje,” “Hips Don’t Lie,” “Let’s Get Loud”/”Born in the U.S.A.” (with Jennifer Lopez and Emme Muñiz)” “Waka Waka” (with Jennifer Lopez)

Notable moment: Shakira did a little bit of everything in this performance. As expected, she showcased her vocal and dancing abilities, which included ululation and belly dancing. But her crowd-surfing and drumming were added bonuses. With over 264 million views, it is by far the most watched Super Bowl halftime performance on YouTube.

Kendrick Lamar, Super Bowl LVI (2022)

SoFi Stadium (Inglewood, California)

Songs performed: “M.A.A.D City,” “Alright,” “Forgot About D.R.E.”

Notable moment: Throughout his portion of the program, Lamar, clad in an all-black Michael Jackson-inspired outfit, was surrounded by dancers in a tight formation. The dancers frequently marched around Lamar, and the broadcast used aerial shots that emphasized their motion on top of the aforementioned map of Lamar’s hometown, Compton.

Justin Timberlake, Super Bowl XXXVIII (2004) and Super Bowl LII (2018)

Reliant Stadium (Houston) and U.S. Bank Stadium (Minneapolis)

Songs performed: “Rock Your Body” (with Janet Jackson in 2004)

“Filthy,” “Rock Your Body,” “Señorita,” “SexyBack,” “My Love,” “Cry Me a River,” “Suit Tie,” “Until the End of Time,” “I Would Die 4 U,” “Mirrors,” “Can’t Stop the Feeling”

Notable moment: Justin Timberlake’s first Super Bowl appearance, alongside Janet Jackson, was marred by the controversial wardrobe malfunction that occurred after he ripped off a portion of Jackson’s top.

As a headliner in 2018, he included a tribute to late Minneapolis native Prince. As Timberlake sang “Until the End of Time” while playing a white grand piano, it transitioned into “I Would Die 4 U,” with a video of Prince performing it, being projected onto a large sheet with purple lights tinting Timberlake’s piano.

An aerial shot then showed downtown Minneapolis covered in purple lights patterned after Prince’s trademarked “Love Symbol,” with the stadium in the middle.

Madonna, Super Bowl XLVI (2012)

Lucas Oil Stadium (Indianapolis)

Songs performed: “Vogue,” “Music” (with LMFAO for mixes of “Party Rock Anthem” and “Sexy and I Know It”), “Give Me All Your Luvin” (with Nicki Minaj and M.I.A.), “Open Your Heart” (with CeeLo Green), “Express Yourself,” “Like A Prayer” (with CeeLo Green)

Notable moment: The show opened with just an instrumental of the “Vogue” intro playing while tens of male dancers, dressed as gladiators, pulled an enormous object that was covered by large feathered banners. Just over 30 seconds into the performance, the song’s opening line of “What are you looking at?” played just as the banners were raised to reveal Madonna sitting on a gold throne while wearing an ensemble of the same color.

Beyoncé, Super Bowl XLVII (2013) and Super Bowl 50 (2016)

Mercedes-Benz Superdome (New Orleans) and Levi’s Stadium (Santa Clara, California)

Songs performed: “Run the World (Instrumental),” “Love on Top,” “Crazy in Love,” “End of Time,” “Baby Boy,” “Bootylicious,” “Independent Women Part I,” “Single Ladies,” “Halo” and, in 2016, “Formation”

Notable moment: Midway through the performance, Beyoncé was joined by fellow former members of Destiny’s Child, Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland. The trio took the stage for an ultra-memorable three-song reunion.

Beyoncé’s second appearance was three years later alongside Bruno Mars as a guest during Coldplay’s set. Her outfit paid homage to Michael Jackson, and the dance break with Mars is one of the most memorable displays in modern Super Bowl halftime history.

Beats Solo 2 Wireless review

You’re still paying a lot for a logo, but the Beats Solo 2 Wireless headphones show that Beats is quickly closing the gap between style and sound.


Why you can trust TechRadar

We spend hours testing every product or service we review, so you can be sure you’re buying the best. Find out more about how we test.

Rag on Beats headphones all you want, it knows how to shift headphones. And though getting bought by Apple hasn’t done much for its ‘cool to hate’ problem, the Beats Solo 2 Wireless headphones mean the haters are running out of reasons to complain.

[Update: Beats has been busy in the years since the Solo 2 were released. recently it’s not only released the Solo 3 Wireless, but it’s also released updated versions of its other headphones such as the PowerBeats 3 and Beats Studio 3.

So what are you giving up if you want to snag a bargain with the slightly older Solo 2s? For one thing, although they’re still wireless, they lack the W1 chip of the Solo 3 headphones, meaning their wireless connectivity isn’t quite as solid.

They also don’t sound as good, thanks to the improvements to the sound that Beats has made over the years.

But if you’re prepared to make those compromises, keep an eye out for discounts.]

Beats has liberated the 2 Wireless cans by cutting the cord and adding Bluetooth connectivity. Well, not entirely. the wired option is there if you want it but now you have the option of blissful wireless connectivity of up to 30 feet.


The Wireless model retains the same design of the Solo 2, and that’s no criticism. Those cans were molded beautifully, and aside from using some slightly larger cups to account for the battery and built-in controls, all Beats has done differently here is throw in Bluetooth connectivity. Oh, and a power button.

As for those of you still rocking out with the original Solo, the Solo 2 are crafted for a softer, more comfortable fit. They’re still mostly plastic, and as long as it’s keeping the weight to a minimum that’s fine with me. but don’t think that makes them brittle. They’re durable, free to bend and twist (within reason) without threatening to snap, neatly folding up in the familiar Beats style for storing in their soft case, before you chuck them in a bag.

Ditching the wire obviously means ditching the handy wire remote too, but fear not. the Beats logo on the side of the left can is actually a controller in disguise. You can adjust the volume (push the top and bottom sections), pause (press the middle button once) or skip track (press it twice).

However, that logo also comes at a price. £270 (US300) to be exact. Yes, these aren’t the sorts of headphones you’ll purchase lightly. Beats has built a brand on its premium image, and it seems happy to keep riding that wave for now. Now you’re starting to see why it gets along with Apple so well.


One of the biggest criticisms of Beats in the past (and one I had agreed with for some time) was sound quality. For all their looks and celebrity backing, Beats headphones hadn’t quite nailed it in performance, and in many ways they still have some distance to go. But the difference between the Solo and the Solo 2 is significant. The bass has been tamed and its now less overpowering than it was before.

The whole range sounds a lot clearer and warmer. While the Solo 2s are still primarily tuned for hip hop and electronic, I found that stringed instruments now come through clearer than before. However, the low levels are still a tad distorted when pushed up to higher volumes.

There’s no active noise cancellation, which you might scoff at considering the price, but the cans do a pretty good job of minimising outside sound.

Certainly, Beats still isn’t punching at the weight of some rivals in its price range, but it’s come a long way in a short space of time.

Battery life

Times have changed. Bluetooth headphones no longer suck battery life like a thirsty toddler with a juice box. Beats says that the headphones should last for around 12 hours of wireless action, which is pretty good. If you’re the kind of person who only listens to headphones on their work commute, you’ll probably get a week’s worth of use from a single charge.

I found Beats‘ estimate to be pretty accurate during my time using the cans, but should you run out of juice when you’re halfway home, you can just pop in the cable and keep listening without any noticeable change in sound quality.

Charging only takes a couple of hours max and is done via micro USB, so chance are you often won’t be far from a power source.

We liked

Beats has made a great pair of headphones even better by cutting the cord, with few other tweaks. The battery life is good, the cans still feel comfortable on your ears, and the design is more handsome than ever.

We disliked

The sound range is much improved over the Solo and Solo HD, though still pretty bassy, but there are better sounding headphones for this price. Perhaps not for this level of design, though.

Final verdict

The Beats Solo 2 Wireless headphones look great, feel great and sound great. Sure, you can get better-sounding cans for this price, but with Beats you’re ultimately paying for fashion. Thankfully, the gap between style and substance is now smaller than ever.

How to get Panther Statue in GTA Online Cayo Perico heist worth 2m

beats, solo, wireless, on-ear, headphones, blue

Rockstar Games

GTA Online’s 2 million Panther Statue in the Cayo Perico Heist is worth a silly amount of money to players. Here’s everything you need to know, including how expensive the statue is worth, and if it’s currently available to steal in GTA Online this week.

The majority of Grand Theft Auto Online’s heist content features a pretty linear structure: you identify a target, charge in, and steal it while evading the police and getting out of there.

Things changed with the Diamond Casino Heist as Rockstar Games added a few variations in terms of how you approach the robbery and the setup. Things were taken up a notch with the Cayo Perico Heist as well, giving you the option to perform it as a solo player – even though it was a bit more difficult.

One thing that the game’s two heists have in common is the fact that you can go after different targets. In the Diamond Casino Heists, actual diamonds are the best thing you can go after, whereas, in the Cayo Perico Heist, it’s the Panther Statue in the Cayo Perico Heist.

The Cayo Perico heist is a great opportunity to make money with the Panther Statue.
