The Reliable Source : It should be illegal to talk while listening to a Prince guitar solo.

rott : That Maroon 5 was traumatic... I had to watch this.

Joseph Johnroe : This tiny little Black Man wrapped in purple velvet would take any Man's wife and wink while he walked away in matching heels. Prince was on another level.

Joseph Johnroe : Little known fact. Prince never got wet durring this performance because the rain drops were to busy enjoying the show and singing along.

Candyce Roberson : Super Bowl halftime show 2019 brought me here.

Seto Lucifer : Prince purified the crowd with the waters of lake Minnetonka.

MemyselfandI : That one time when there was football at a Prince concert

Sandra Becht : Prince: I only want to see you in the purple rain God: hold my beer

Eric Stanger : That was the year Prince let them have a football game at his concert!

Robert S550stang : Legend has it people bought tickets to see Prince not the game......

karatebuff : He wasn't playing the music, he wasn't singing the music HE WAS THE MUSIC!!

Juan - : There was a football match in this Prince Concert ?

Bryan Westover : Toward the end of Purple Rain when he says "you all want to sing tonight?" and hold his hand to his ear, the crowd roars and he can't hold back a smile. Classic.

Mittens Vasquez : When you see someone do what they were meant to do in their life and you were alive to experience it. Words can't describe it.

Tinesha Cooky : Just watched the Superbowl and was extremely disappointed. I had to watch this for memories.... Prince you are missed

damduck73 : And he honored Miami wearing the Dolphins colors

Lord Fourth : I actually performed in this halftime show. I was in the Marching band. (shout out to the Marching 100) fall 2006. This night is still very special to me. Yes it did rain on us. yes, the led lights made the rain purple, on everything I love, you have never seen or felt ANYTHING like that. It was very surreal, a ND it felt good. Thank You. Prince, for the experience.

Derek Melvin : I'm watching this instead of Maroon 5 in 2019. No one can touch this.

Peach and Black Podcast - A Podcast on Prince : Still voted year after year as the best Superbowl half-time performance of ALL-TIME :)

Bill Cosby : Rip prince you are the greatest musician ever

TheSolidheroes : Anyone noticed Prince didn't get wet from the rain WTF??!?!!??

Donny Burg : when Prince stands in the rain, the rain gets wet.

Michael Wofford : Eric Clapton (reportedly) was once asked "What's it like to be the greatest guitarist in the world?" He (again reportedly) immediately replied "why are you asking me? go talk to Prince".

josue flanquin : some legends did walk the earth

Abby Reynolds : Prince was just too much for this world.

PurpleRain500 : This man IS the definition of epic! He had a new album out, and one on the way and YET wasn't out to promote himself. He did what he wanted and covered three songs without drawing any attention to his latest efforts whatsoever. This man wasn't out to line his pockets, he was out to make the most memorable Halftime Show in history calling upon the great American songbook for anthems that we all knew and cherished. It was never about himself. Now how many other entertainers would even think of passing up a global opportunity to promote themselves especially with a new album out with modest sales, and another one on the way? I'll wait.... NO ONE but MY PRINCE!... I'll never forget the day that I saw you live in Chicago on September 24, 2012 my dear friend.... Until we meet in heaven, I love and adore U until the end of ALL time, "Welcome 2 The Dawn," my darling Prince. O(+>

Fam M : You know the difference here is that Prince played a concert for the crowd at the stadium, whereas most half-time shows are played for the camera.

Rillepille 89 : That high tune at the end always makes me tear up and gives me goosebumps

Donald Gonzalez : I am only 21, I never got to see him in his prime, I loved his music, all of it and I’ve never seen something more beautiful than this, still watching in 2019, RIP PRINCE

Fly fish Fanatic : Prince had the best halftime show ever.

Delilah Puddingstash : I still can't believe he's gone! I miss the hell out of him...RIP Prince

Cliff Schaumburg : This was by far and away the best Superbowl half-time show...ever.

Felicia S : Anyone else coming here to see, one more time, Prince’s magical performance after Maroon 5’ lame one ..??

Zsavage1 : Still the best halftime show I've ever seen.. Prince set the bar soo high.. it's gonna take a hell of a show to top his... Bless you Prince and may you RIP brother... you ARE missed..

Bee Bevill : I was almost dead from watching Maroon 5. After rewatching this superior performance I've come back to life.

Amanda Donaldson : When you can stop singing and raise your hand, and the audience can finish the song for you, you've won.

Cheer Whiner : Prince was never one of my favorites when I was young, but one cannot deny his Musical Genius... one of a kind... amazing... one of the best of my Generation. 👍🏼

Greg Ward : Maron 5 should have taken lessons from Prince

Ewokoniad Sigourneth-Juniorstein : Only a god can turn a potentially disastrous and miserable day into an awesome memorable day.

MsRogue1 : I get goosebumps every time it gets to the part in 'Purple Rain' where the crowd is singing along, and there is a shot circling the stadium. It was like the whole world was singing along! What a performance!

Lalturua Vanchhawng : Any thumbs up for the dancers dancin in 8 inch in that slippery tiles
