In what year did the Super Bowl halftime show feature Prince?
In 2007, Super Bowl XLI kicked off between the Chicago Bears and Indianapolis Colts in Miami. Prince performed the halftime show, donning a teal suit. He started his 12-minute performance with “Let’s Go Crazy” and finished by playing “Purple Rain” as a downpour began in the stadium. On the airwaves, 140 million viewers tuned into the performance, and the stadium held 75,000 attendees. Some consider Prince’s set the best halftime show in the history of the Super Bowl.

The Super Bowl is the annual championship game of the National Football League (NFL). The game is the culmination to a regular season that begins in the late summer of the previous calendar year. The NFL restricts the use of its “Super Bowl” trademark; it is frequently called the Big Game or other generic terms by non-sponsoring corporations. Because of the high viewership, commercial airtime during the Super Bowl broadcast is the most expensive of the year, leading to companies regularly developing their most expensive advertisements for this broadcast.
