UPDATE: On December 3, 2015, it was announced that Coldplay will perform at the 2016 Super Bowl halftime show.

The 2016 Super Bowl will be the 50th anniversary of the NFL's championship event. One of the most exciting moments of any Super Bowl is the halftime show, and according to what we know, the 2016 Super Bowl halftime show could be one of the best. Bruno Mars, who was the headliner in 2014, will be curating this year's event. Who do you think he will pick as the 2016 halftime show performer?

The 2016 Super Bowl half time performance could see a current artist like Taylor Swift or Lady Gaga take center stage. Or it's possible that the Super Bowl 50 halftime performer is an older classic, like the Red Hot Chili Peppers were in 2014. 

Maybe the 2016 Super Bowl 50 halftime show will feature a previously underrepresented music genre, like country or hip hop. Plenty of people would go crazy if Florida Georgia Line played the Super Bowl halftime show in 2016.

Vote up who you think will play this year's big game. Remember to only vote for or add artists that are huge names and are currently performing in 2016. While it would be great if the surviving members of Led Zeppelin reunited for the 2016 Super Bowl halftime show, that's probably not going to happen. Perhaps Billy Joel would be a safer bet if the show went with a classic rock theme.
