The only thing as big as the Super Bowl is the halftime performance at the Super Bowl. Super Bowl XLIX has reportedly narrowed its search down to Rihanna, Coldplay and Katy Perry for this year’s halftime show. All are megastars in today’s music world and would provide a great show. The only problem is that the winning act would have to give some of the money it earns from the show back to the league in the “pay for play” system. Those three acts have a chance to play at the 2015 game, but, there are tons of other groups and musicians who have never performed at the big game. Kanye West and Jay Z, two of the biggest rappers in the history of music, have yet to grace the halftime show with their presence. What other acts that could be a good fit at the Super Bowl?
