Prince's performance at halftime of Super Bowl 41 is considered by many to be the best in the game's history. Through a rain and wind storm, Prince was able to hold down the Super Bowl XLI Halftime Show with a spectacular performance.

His setlist included: Queen's legendary sports anthem "We Will Rock You", "Let's Go Crazy", "Baby I'm a Star", Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Proud Mary," Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower," the Foo Fighters' "Best of You," and his somewhat autobiographical "Purple Rain."
