    Shania Twain and Travis Tritt Rank Among the “Best All-Time Super Bowl Halftime Performers”

    I can’t say I was totally surprised that only two country artists, Shania Twain and Travis Tritt made ‘Rankers‘ “Best All-Time Super Bowl Halftime Performer” list. The list included mostly rock artists. At the top of the list is Michael Jackson, followed by Prince, Beyonce’, Aerosmith and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in the top five. Shania was 15 while Tritt’s 1994 Country Halftime Show appearance came in at number 17. Check out Shania’s 2003 halftime show and who else made the list.

If they can pull it off, Fox Sports will donate $5,000.00 dollars to the Seattle Youth Football League (SYFL). The twist was that the 10 diehard Seahawks fans are also coaches for the SYFL. Did they do it? Watch how animated and quiet these guys “try” to be.
