    "Super Bowl halftime shows are one of my favorites. Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake halftime show was a memorable one. Justin accidentally disrobed Janet on stage by accident.

    "I am going to have to go with a no here. Prince was performing WAY past his prime, most young audiences didn't know who he was. I would go with Lady Gaga or Beyonce as best of all time. Let's keep the super bowl performances relevant. "

    "Beyonce was one of the worst halftime performers. The show catered to African tastes. It was degenerate and subversive."

    "The best Super Bowl halftime is so hard to say because everyone likes different music. I truly enjoyed Bruno Mars but was he the best? NO. My vote would have to go to The Who because I love them dearly. The Rolling Stones aren't even in the Top 5 for me."
