Vote: Who Should Be the 2021 Super Bowl Halftime Show Headliner?

Published: Tuesday 20th Oct 2020 by Rashad

The Super Bowl Halftime Show is known as the biggest spectacle on Earth and for good reason given the 100 million+ eyes that are annually glued to TV screens in its anticipation.

Compounded with the opportunity to be etched in history is the highly coveted slot’s boosts in its performers’ sales, streams, recognition, and – for some – accolades (see: Emmy nominations).

Amid ongoing criticism of the NFL’s response to complaints of its treatment of players of color (as well as slow response to the issue of racial injustice at large), the league’s tapped Jesse Collins – courtesy of Roc Nation – to serve as the extravaganza’s first African American executive producer.

With the spotlight brighter than ever for Collins and the show to deliver next year, who among today’s crop of top acts is deserving to become immortalized by joining an exclusive list that includes the likes of Michael Jackson, Madonna, Prince, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, & more?

Look inside to tell us:

Who Should Be the 2021 Super Bowl Halftime Show Headliner?

    Janet (tho I don’t think she would do it) or Ari those two 🔥💯

    • Andrew October 20, 2020

      Beyonce

    • Zion October 21, 2020

      Lol all these power bottoms want Janet

    • Jane Doe October 21, 2020

      Without any doubt it should be Camila Cabello!
      She’s young, have the hits, it’s on top of her career, surely will have some Grammy nominations these year, she is a strong singer, has stage presence and it’s a hot dancer!
      And before some of you start saying she doesn’t have enough material or career years she can share the spotlight with her hunky boyfriend Shawn Mendes 🤤
      Ariana would be a nice choice as well but I think she should have done it when she was in her Thank U Next fase..

  2. eric October 20, 2020

    It would be Pink or Janet for me.

    • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(drink my diva cup ☕️) October 20, 2020

      Oh really? U pervert u wanna see janet’s ni-pples shield again? 😂🤣😂🤣

      • Jay October 20, 2020

        The appearance of a Woman’s nipple makes someone a pervert.??
        That’s so 1950’s of you!!

  3. AJ October 20, 2020

    I’m certain they’ll go for Taylor Swift because America is fed up of Black people and blacklives. #whatashame.

    I hope Rihanna gets it.

    • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(drink my diva cup ☕️) October 20, 2020

      Oh hunny that skinny basic white gurl can’t handle super bowl, female Maroon 5 💁🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️

  4. Jackx October 20, 2020

    It should be Rihanna but I doubt she’ll do it, my next vote would be Ariana or drake

    • Fancy BISH October 20, 2020

      Whoever performs needs to scale it down too…cause the explosions, 500 dancers and cooochiie popping/peeen popping, falling from the sky, mean mugging and whatnot is played ALL the way out 🤣 Whoever performs should do something more intimate and original! 💯

      • Sam October 20, 2020

        I disagree, halftimes the time to go all out, explosions, 500 dancers…its halftime not a cafe stop.

      • Meme October 20, 2020

        I agree but whoever does they they will drag for being boring

  5. Pat October 20, 2020

    I feel janets not interested. So I’ll say rih or drake. They have the hits to keep me entertained at least

    • eric October 20, 2020

      I wonder, but it could be a good launching platform for her reschedule of the Black Diamond Tour.

      • Pat October 20, 2020

        And album.., That’d be epic

  6. Mike October 20, 2020

    Rihana is such a bad Peformer people just hype her because she has a strong personality but she is a bad Peformer

    • Clarks0o0ñ October 20, 2020

      Her songs are good also
      She has the best music catalogue
      Almost all her songs are hits.
      She’s a not a strong performer .

      Beyonce is a strong performer but her music catalogue is whack
      Most of her songs people dont even know them when she’s performing it.

      If beyonce had Rihanna’s music catalogue, she would be unstoppable

      • Andrew October 20, 2020

        You said it all. But actually rihanna will never have any stage abilities. Stick to lingerie.

      • Anthony October 20, 2020

        Y’all love claiming Beyonce catalog ain’t good yet Apple Music just listed her as the 4th most listened to female artist of all time. 4 of her albums have reached over a billion streams on Spotify. Crazy in love/Lemonade is rolling stones song of the century/greatest female album of the century. So somebodies listening?!?

      • Theman October 20, 2020

        People streaming your music does not mean that it’s great. Beyoncé is just extremely popular.

    • ERICMORRIS October 20, 2020

      JANET

  7. Shayla Queen 👑 October 20, 2020

    Taylor Swift isn’t exactly a “performer” as such, but she has a huge catalog of hits and I’m sure she’d be able to put on some kind of spectacle to make up for her lack of being able to dance.

    Anyone saying Janet, I don’t think she would and I don’t think she should after the way they treated her.

    • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(drink my diva cup ☕️) October 20, 2020

      😂🤣😂 imagine if janet will be performing with JT again. Janet will rip off his jockstrap This time 😂🤣😂 payback time

  8. Hmmm… October 20, 2020

    None of these people are good performers except Janet. And Pink. Maybe Usher. I don’t know how many people would be excited to see him though. Honestly, It probably depends on how the election turns out whether anybody will care about this or not.

  9. MG October 20, 2020

    Janet, is the only name worthy of Super Bowl performance status On this list. Next, I’d say PInk or Usher, but I question they can put on a very High energy performance as it requires. Rihanna, Taylor, Miley and Drake have the Hits, but lack stage presence, and aren’t real entertainers.

    • Hologram October 22, 2020

      Taylor lacking stage presence? Lol
      I don’t think so

  10. Musiqlovah October 20, 2020

    Nobody! We still on strike!
    Did we forgotten?
    “Until Colin rap again, we ain’t Happenin'”

  11. TORi October 20, 2020

    If we can’t have Janet or Usher, just bring bring Beyoncé or Bruno back! The rest of this bunch is a strong hell no! The industry is dead if your list is any indication. We really are missing PERFORMERS in this generation, there’s only a few.

  12. tyty October 20, 2020

    After Beyoncé nobody really can compare or compete Rihanna doesn’t have the stamina. Usher possibly, if this is the list then chile…… The best are truly gone

    • Clarks0o0ñ October 20, 2020

      Shakira and jlo halftime show was more entertaining than beyonce’s

  13. Highbrowthis October 20, 2020

    I really don’t understand how people don’t understand the Queen that is Janet. That Super Bowl stage is so far beneath her. Unless the NFL apologizes, Justin apologizes, Les Moonves apologizes and they offer her an astronomical figure to perform. But Janet has too much class and now that JLO has touched that stage it’s even cheaper. Usher is a logical choice with his residency coming up and he has the hits as well as the “playsafe” performance they would want. Also Jay Z is in charge of halftime so I’m sure it will be someone he can pull on stage (not Janet). Also Rihanna stated in last years vogue that she would not perform to be in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick so if she did I don’t think that would be a good look.

    • Kevon October 20, 2020

      Stfu clown

      • Highbrowthis October 20, 2020

        Well i said what i needed to say ugly f***.

      • Highbrowthis October 20, 2020

        And as if you had any value. “Yesterday’s deconstructions are often tomorrow’s orthodox cliches.” lol lol

      • Highbrowthis October 20, 2020

  14. #TheTruth October 20, 2020

    Pink sings live and anyone who’s been to her tours knows she puts on the craziest shows. She’s underrated in the US and she would give Americans a little reminder.

  15. Milo October 20, 2020

    I know ya’ll aint got Alicia Keys on this list..
    But if Justin Timberlake can do the Supwrbowl then let Usher bring the house down.
    But I also wouldn’t mind Pink. And even something a little different like BTS.
    I’ve seen some clips of their performances and those boys can get down.

  16. PinotNoir October 20, 2020

    Jason Derulo????? 😂😂😂

    Janet would shut it down. P!nk would put an indelible show. RiRi a close 3rd. Kendrick alas would need a white feature (nothing like Adam monkey-dancing next to Big Boi, tho). Ariana’s songs are too schmaltzy for Superbowl. Usher shoulda headlined in 05 during Confessions. The rest? Nice gowns, beautiful gowns.

    • Hoax October 20, 2020

      You pathetic!
      The nice gowns beautiful gowns is the current music industry and winning in this poll 🤣

      • Hologram October 22, 2020

        Taylor Swift for me as well! She is a good looking singer with good hits after hits! And she’s also safe for American middle class

  17. Happy+n+Rich October 20, 2020

    It’s Usher, baby!

  18. Lol October 20, 2020

    I just wanna know who the heck said the weekend? Are you serious?

  19. 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(drink my diva cup ☕️) October 20, 2020

    Pink!!!! 💋💋💋 just like my WAP color💅🏿💅🏿💅🏿

  20. ~The Arcade~ October 20, 2020

    KENDRICK OR JANET

  21. Gee October 20, 2020

    Missy Elliott, or P!nk

  22. #Formulation October 20, 2020

    Lets just have drake and be done with it..

  23. Keith October 20, 2020

    Hopefully, Janet will STAY AS FAR AWAY from the SuperBowl as possible!!! Jason Derulo can have it, LOL…

  24. Paulo October 20, 2020

    WHAT is Jason Derulo’s face doing in this article? Lol please… I’d vote for Janet but this was The Weekend’s year again. It’s only right that he headlines super bowl 2021

    • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(drink my diva cup ☕️) October 20, 2020

      SCREAMING 😂😂!!! I was wondering the same thing! 🤦🏼‍♂️

  25. Lanafan1 October 20, 2020

    Janet or Ariana

  26. cinnamon roll October 20, 2020

    I think Monica should headline. Verzuz proved her abilities.

    • Billyjean October 20, 2020

      Except..MOOniggàs Kermit vocals wouldn’t be soothing to the ear, if anything they should’ve considered The girl who’s shadow she’s been in since the 90’s alaa Brandy..

    • Big Birkin Beisha October 20, 2020

      Lmao Monica WHO?

      You must be referring to Monica Lewinsky because Goonica Denise can barely book the House of Blues.

  27. RCW October 20, 2020

    I’m surprised you guys didn’t mention the vocal bible 😂 🤦🏽‍♂️ smh

  28. //// October 20, 2020

    lil wayne

  29. ….. October 20, 2020

    lil wayne

  30. Bravo!! October 20, 2020

    I would prefer usher to perform half-time at the Superbowl. Because he has a Vegas show coming up and a huge catalog of music. It just makes more sense for him to perform at the Superbowl.

    • llll October 20, 2020

      Lil Wayne would be able to bring out so many special guest

  31. Billyjean October 20, 2020

    Where’s camilas nomination??😂😂 tht ugly flop can’t even get a nomination off sum ghetto ass bloggggCRYYYING🤣🤣

  32. #WAP October 20, 2020

    BREAKING NEWS: even with all of that promo and that video, Lady GaGa’s “911” failed to chart on the billboard hot 100 😂 Why no article on Thai TGJ?! Gaga is a FLOP without Ariana!

    • JanStan October 20, 2020

      But Gaga booked the halftime show though. Will WAP ever be performed anywhere within the same solar system as ANY Gaga song?

  33. Henry Kahrmann October 20, 2020

    Taylor swift

  34. JanStan October 20, 2020

    Janet wouldn’t do it BUT imagine a rhythm nation centric half time show? She’d end C****.

  35. TRANS RACIAL QUEEN October 21, 2020

    Taylors album is back at number 1!

    • Taylor Swift 1989 October 21, 2020

      Congrats Taylor for winning🔥❤️😍🎉

  36. Taylor Swift 1989 October 21, 2020
