Past Anthem and Half Time Show Performers (Last 12 Years)
As most sports and betting fans know, the annual Super Bowl is about football, but over the last couple of decades, it’s also come to be so much more than that. Part of that hype is the halftime show. Starting in the 1960’s with the classic marching bands, the half time show has evolved into a world class entertainment act featuring the top performers and bands from each decade, including Prince, NSYNC, Jeannette Jackson, Paul McCartney, U2, Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty.
After Super Bowl XXXVIII, whose halftime show featured an infamous incident where Justin Timberlake exposed one of Janet Jackson’s breasts, the halftime show began to feature classic rock acts until the return of headlining pop musicians in 2011, when pop star Beyonce rocked the house and captivated attendees with an eye catching show. Pop star Katy Perry became the latest performance to do the honors at last year’s Super Bowl Event.
Super Bowl Coin Toss (Last 12 Years)
The first “decision” every team has to make during the Super Bowl is calling the coin toss. Many sports and entertainment celebrities have taken part in this decisive ceremony, including some U.S presidents. Ronald Reagan appeared live via satellite from the White House and tossed the coin on January 20, 1985, when the San Francisco 49ers faces the Miami Dolphins in Stanford, California.
Considering that the coin toss always has two potential outcomes, it has also become a popular betting prop year after year. Super Bowl prop betting allows for multiple wagers on the toss. You can bet if it will land on heads or tails, which team will win the coin toss, if the team making the call will win the coin toss, and if the coin toss winner will be victorious.
