The top spot for the most viewed Super Bowl moment was taken by two powerful Latinas, who garnered a whopping 260 million views. With the anticipation building for the upcoming Super Bowl, set to take place on Sunday, Feb. 12, 2023, at 6:30 p.m. ET on Fox and various streaming services, there’s something for everyone to enjoy – from football fans to those who just love the commercials or halftime show. Ahead of the big day, JeffBet, an online casino, conducted research into which Super Bowl moments had attracted the most views by analyzing the official NFL YouTube page, where clips and highlights of every Super Bowl are posted.
The Super Bowl LIV halftime show in Miami Gardens, Florida, was the talk of the town thanks to the amazing performance put on by Shakira and Jennifer Lopez. These two Latina powerhouses delivered a show filled with culture, energy, and excitement that made headlines for weeks afterward. It’s no surprise that their performance is the most viewed Super Bowl video to date, with over 260 million views. This means that it accounts for more than a quarter of the total combined views of the top 10 Super Bowl videos, which amounts to 971 million views in total.
Coming in at number two is the latest Super Bowl halftime show from Super Bowl LVI. This year’s performance took place in Inglewood, California and featured a star-studded lineup including Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Dr. Dre, Mary J. Blige, 50 Cent, and Kendrick Lamar. Since its upload on February 14th, 2022, the halftime performance has garnered an impressive 154 million views.
Snoop Dogg took the stage during the Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show on February 13, 2022 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. The third and fourth highest viewed halftime show moments were both from Super Bowl 50 in 2016. Beyoncé and Bruno Mars’ performance holds the third spot with 153 million views, while Coldplay’s performance follows with 113 million views. The 2017 Super Bowl LI halftime show in Houston, Texas, featuring Lady Gaga, takes fifth place with almost 76 million views. Katy Perry’s 2015 Super Bowl XLIX performance in Glendale, Arizona, with Missy Elliott and Lenny Kravitz contests for fifth place, having been viewed just over 75 million times since its posting on September 13th, 2016. As a result, the Teenage Dream singer’s performance is ranked sixth.
Katy Perry rocked the halftime show during the Patriots vs. Seahawks match at the Super Bowl on February 1, 2015. The top 10 most-watched Super Bowl moments list features a range of performances, with The Weeknd’s 2021 halftime show in Tampa Bay, Florida, taking seventh place with 54 million views. Prince’s iconic rendition of “Purple Rain” during the halftime show at the 2007 Super Bowl XLI in Miami Gardens, Florida, is in eighth place with 49 million views, making it the only pre-2010 performance to make the list. Maroon 5 takes both ninth and tenth places, with their performances at the Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta, Georgia, and Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis, Minnesota, respectively, gaining 20 million and 18 million views.
The NFL’s official YouTube page has over 75 Super Bowl-related videos with a total view count of more than 1.3 billion views. The study found that the New England Patriots vs. Atlanta Falcons highlights at the 2017 Super Bowl LI is the first non-performance Super Bowl moment to appear in the rankings. According to JeffBet’s spokesperson, the Super Bowl halftime show is a major draw, and all performers who make it to the top ten leave a lasting impression. In 2023, Rihanna will headline the halftime show for Super Bowl 57, and it will be interesting to see if her performance will accumulate a similar number of views online. The National Football League has confirmed that the big sporting event will partner with Apple Music, replacing longtime sponsor Pepsi. Rihanna teased her appearance by posting a captionless photo on social media holding a football, which the NFL posted simultaneously, writing, “Let’s GO.”
As per reports, Rihanna has no plans of leaving her 7-month-old child with a nanny while performing at the 2023 Super Bowl. The talented singer, actress, and entrepreneur, who shares her baby with boyfriend A$AP Rocky, intends to involve her firstborn in the event on February 12. According to a source from HollywoodLife, Rihanna considers the Super Bowl as a significant opportunity and cannot have her son miss it under any circumstances. To ensure her child’s safety, she plans to equip him with noise-canceling headphones or arrange for her family to watch the show from a skybox or club seating, considering the loud atmosphere.
