As the event has grown, the caliber of halftime performer the NFL draws in has grown as well. Prince, Beyoncé and Janet Jackson have all graced the stage within the last two decades. Joining those greats, The Weeknd has earned the honor of gracing the halftime stage in front of millions across the globe.
