1. Shakira & Jennifer Lopez
It was the last major NFL event before the state was placed under lockdown during the pandemic that Shakira and Jennifer Lopez performed at the 2020 Super Bowl LIV in Miami Gardens, Florida. This remarkable event showcased the fantastic performances of the two talented singers and served as a bittersweet goodbye to large-scale events before the pandemic engulfed the world.
The halftime show received over 260 million views. A combined 971 million views were recorded for the top 10 Super Bowl videos.
2. Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Dr. Dre, Mary J. Blige, 50 Cent, & Kendrick Lamar

Closely following in third and fourth place are both moments from the Super Bowl 50 halftime show. Two videos were produced during this halftime show. One shows the performance of Beyoncé and Bruno Mars, which has attracted the third highest number of views at 153 million.
Another video shows Coldplay, which has attracted 113 million views. The performance featured “Uptown Funk” and “Formation,” with Beyoncé and Bruno Mars joining Chris Martin on stage. This is the only time in history that a single Super Bowl appears twice in the top 10.

6. Katy Perry
Next in line is Katy Perry, who hotly contested for the fifth-place spot. However, after her Super Bowl XLIX 2015 performance in Glendale, Arizona, with Missy Elliott and Lenny Kravitz on Sep 13, 2016, the performance of the Teenage Dream singer has received just over 75 million views, placing her in sixth position.
7. The Weeknd

His performance featured a medley of his hits, including “Let’s Go Crazy,” “Baby I’m a Star,” and “Purple Rain.” In addition, it featured a collaborative guitar solo with Prince and the Foo Fighters’ guitarist, Dave Grohl. This is the only performance or video related to the Super Bowl before 2010.

One Of The Most Memorable Super Bowl Non-Performances
Among the 75 Super Bowl-related videos available on the NFL’s official YouTube Page, the study collected and analyzed data with a total view count of 1.3 billion. The first non-performance Super Bowl moment in the rankings is the highlights from the 2017 Super Bowl LI between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons.
The infamous Tom Brady famously led the New England Patriots to a 28-34 victory over the Atlanta Falcons, resulting in one of the greatest comebacks in sports and Super Bowl history.
