It's the dream of every NFL player to play in a Super Bowl. It takes a lot of hard work to make it to the big game, and it's a chance to make headlines. Since the NFL decided to make the halftime show an event within an event, it's the hope of almost every musical act to be asked to perform in front of a television audience of over 200 million worldwide. 

*NSYNC's reunion at the MTV Video Music Awards, where they presented Taylor Swift with her Best Pop Video for her song 'Anti-Hero', has sparked speculation that the boy band could perform at this season's Super Bowl half-time show. Swift said after the ceremony: "They're going to do something and I need to know what it is." Could a gig in Las Vegas on Sunday, 11 February be just that? 

Some of the biggest acts in the world have filled the extended halftime interval over the years, leaving highlights that will live long in the memory. From U2's poignant performance five months after the terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center on 11 September, 2001, to Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunction in 2004 to Prince performing Purple Rain in a wet Miami in 2006, the annual halftime show has provided plenty of memorable moments. 

The NFL will soon announce which act will provide the halftime entertainment at Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas on Sunday 11 February. The Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles are among the favourites with the leading betting sites to represent their conferences in Super Bowl LVIII.

At Bookies.com, we have applied hypothetical odds for the acts who might get that all-important call from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in the coming weeks. 

Swift & Sheeran Rule Themselves Out 

There was a time not too long ago when no acts were deemed too big to perform during the halftime interval of the most-watched single sporting event in the world. However, two of the biggest acts in the world - Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran - have ruled themselves out for the time being. 

Sheeran said in a recent interview that he felt he didn't have the "pizzazz" to fill the slot, adding he felt it was more of an "American thing." However, he didn't rule out joining a headline act on stage one day, saying: "I think that would be the only way I would do it, if I was joining someone else."

Could that someone else be Taylor Swift? Swift is unlikely to make herself available in February because she has her own tour to focus on. On the night before Super Bowl LVIII, Swift is scheduled to have a gig in Tokyo. But being a massive fan of *NSYNC, could she be tempted to perform with them, if they get the call?

Lil Wayne To Perform At The Biggest Game?

Since revamping the halftime show in 1990, when New Kids On The Block performed, pop has dominated, with a sprinkling of country, rock, R&B and hip-pop dispersed intermittently. 

In 2021, the NFL went with R&B with The Weeknd performing in the interval. Twelve months later, hip-hop took center stage with Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J Blige and Kendrick Lamar putting on an unforgettable performance. Last February, Rihanna became the first person to headline a Super Bowl halftime show while pregnant with her son RZA Athelston Mayers. 

With hip-hop celebrating its 50th anniversary earlier this year, rapper Lil Wayne is leading our current market to perform at February's Super Bowl halftime show. Lil Wayne has worked with the NFL in the past, and his reward for that could be to headline the halftime show at the Raiders' Allegiant Stadium. 

For those who love cryptic messages, the Green Bay Packers fan was sent a script to promote the 104th NFL season, and his part was revealed on 'page nine, scene 23, line 23'. That could equate to the date 9-23-23, when the league might announce this season's halftime act. Rihanna was announced last year on the same date. 

Miley Cyrus is another who has worked with the NFL before, when she performed at the #TikTokTailgate party before Super Bowl LV in Tampa Bay. If she was to get the gig, she could appeal to the older generation of football fans by bringing her father Billy-Ray on stage.

Rock Acts Unlikely To Make A Return

It's been a few years since a true rock act took to the stage at the Super Bowl halftime show. The Who brought the house down in 2009 in Miami when they followed Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen in successive Super Bowls. 

If a rock act is chosen by the NFL, then look no further than The Killers. Lead singer Brandon Flowers is from Las Vegas, and a performance in his home city would be fitting. The Killers have been touring the world to critical acclaim this year, and they could put on a memorable performance. 

Harry Styles cannot be ruled out of the equation either. The former One Direction singer has seen his solo career take off, and he has a catalog of hits to keep everyone happy between halves. 

Could Justin Timberlake take to the Super Bowl stage for a third time? Timberlake shared the stage with Janet Jackson during the interval of Super Bowl XXXVIII in February 2004, before headlining Super Bowl LII in 2018. Timberlake started out as a member of *NSYNC, who have announced they will be releasing their first material in 20 years on 29 September. What 'Better Place' for the reformed boy-band to mark their return than with a performance in Las Vegas in February with perhaps some other special guests. 

Others in the frame include rock band Imagine Dragons, rappers Bad Bunny, Post Malone and Jack Harlow, while country star Garth Brooks and Wayne 'Mr Las Vegas' Newton, who has been performing in Sin City since 1963, are also candidates to headline the halftime show at Super Bowl LVIII.
