This year [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Madonna[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]LMFAO[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Nicki Minaj[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Cee Lo Green[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]M.I.A[/lastfm] are all hitting the stage, and it’s promised to be one of the biggest in Super Bowl history!

5. Nsync, Aerosmith, Britney Spears, Nelly, and Mary J. Blige – Super Bowl XXV (2001)
In 2001, you’d have been hard pressed to find a boy band bigger than Nsync. Fresh off selling two million copies of their album in a week, Justin and the others were on top of the world. Aerosmith were experiencing a resurgence in their careers due to their hit, “Jaded,” which led to the two bands collaborating. Britney Spears got to perform simply because she and Timberlake were hot and heavy at the time. Nelly and Mary J. Blige make brief appearances to rock out on “Walk This Way.” Even if you hated bubblegum pop music, you gave it a pass for this electrifying show.
