Celebrate Prince By Remembering His Epic Super Bowl Halftime Show (VIDEO)
April 21, 2016 will forever be known as the day Prince died — but February 4, 2007 will go down in history as the day Prince delivered the best Super Bowl Halftime show ever.
The singer, who passed away at the young age of 57, took to the stage during a downpour and put on a 12-minute show that nobody will ever forget.
Included with the Grammy and Oscar-winning performer were two backup dancers known as “The Twinz” — identical-looking sisters Maya & Nandy McClean — and the Florida A&M University marching band.
The Minnesota native’s setlist included his songs “Let’s Go Crazy,” “Baby, I’m a Star,” and aptly closed the show with his signature song “Purple Rain.”
Also performed during the show were “We Will Rock You” by Queen, “Proud Mary” by Creedence Clearwater Revival, “All Along the Watchtower” by Bob Dylan, and “Best of You” by The Foo Fighters.
Super Bowl producers recall that Prince had the best reaction to the storm he took the stage in, asking, “Can you make it rain harder?”
Music critics have called the performance “arguably the best halftime show in Super Bowl history” and the momentous occasion was witnessed by nearly 75K people in attendance and seen by more than 93 million TV viewers.
Others may try, but none will succeed in surpassing the sheer epicness of Prince’s turn.
