It’s almost game time, guys! You know I’m talking about the Super Bowl – or should I say Puppy Bowl? – and while I love watching men battle it out in tight pants, my beloved Patriots are not in the game, so I’m not nearly as interested as I should be. And let’s be honest, whether we’re big football fans or not, the half-time show is one of the best parts of the game (along with the commercials, obvi). Add on the fact that Bruno Mars will be performing (after securing a big Grammy win for Best Pop Vocal Album, no less) and the Red Hot Chili Peppers are making an appearance, and well, you basically won’t be able to tear my eyes from the TV screen.
So whether you’re planning a big party for the game, or just want to take a trip down memory lane, I recommend plugging into this playlist. We’ve gathered hit songs that were performed during the iconic halftime show in the past – including the always-infamous “Rock Your Body” by J.T. and J.J. – and sprinkled in a few tunes we hope Bruno and the Peppers (New band name? Maybe? OK, no…) grace us with on Sunday.

It was a magical weekend in the world of music. The return of football (are you nailgating this season?) brought the news that this year’s Super Bowl XLVIII half-time show may just be better than the last. While we love Beyonce as much as the next girl, our hearts started pitter pattering with the announcement that Bruno Mars will take the stage during the championship game. Um, yes, we would like to watch him swagger on stage with his bandmates, reminding us of Michael Jackson’s smooth moves, especially after his VMA’s performance. And letting him charm us half-way through watching cute guys play football? Thank you, NFL. Thank you.
But that’s not all that’s got us on a music-high this Monday. USWeekly also tipped us off about a certain collaboration between two of our fave pop artists. We kind of figured something could be in the works after the Twitter lovefest that occurred between J-Lo and T-Swift after their performance on Taylor’s Red Tour. But it looks like the two will have a song on Jenny’s eighth album, set to release in early 2014. Anyone else think this is going to be a match made in heart-thumping, run-your-heart-out heaven?
To tide you over until these big events actually come to fruition, we compiled our top tunes from these three stellar artists. And if you need to remember just how great all of ‘em are at performing, check out these vids first:
Now you tell us: Which performance are you most excited about?
