The Best Halftime Petitions for This Year's Super Bowl
Kanye West, Twenty One Pilots... and Iggy Azalea? See who some fans think should be rocking Houston instead of Lady Gaga.
Millions of viewers will tune in to Super Bowl LI this Sunday -- some to watch the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons go head-to-head, some to see the most outrageous commercial, and some to watch what will certainly be an eye-popping halftime show. This year, Lady Gaga will be front and center for the highly anticipated halftime performance at NRG Stadium in Houston.
Little Monsters couldn't be more thrilled to watch Gaga perform at the halftime show -- but other music fans are less agreeable. An online petition suggesting that "Bad and Boujee" rappers Migos replace the pop superstar at halftime has earned over 64,000 signatures; several other pleas for a new artist have also popped up, all with fewer signatures but no less interesting ideas.
Suggested Artist: Migos
Current Support: 65,000 signatures
Convincing Petition Argument: "Halftime should be Migos killing Bad and Boujee, Future kills em with March Madness, then Outkast comes out and does an AQUEMINI sampler and then they end it with BUN B and JAY Z DOING BIG PIMPIN!!!!"
Suggested Artist: Chris Brown
Current Support: 9,775 signatures
Convincing Petition Argument: "People called Chris Brown a Legendary Artist. I believe Chris will be a legend and that's why he need(s) to make history on the Superbowl!”
Current Support: 1,655 signatures
Convincing Petition Argument: "'We Are The Champions' and 'We Will Rock You' -- two songs that deserve to be performed LIVE by Queen + Adam Lambert.”
Suggested Artist: Kanye West
Current Support: 1,629 signatures
Convincing Petition Argument: “You can say what you want about Kanye West but.... One thing you can't say is that he's not one of the best performers of ALL TIME!”
Suggested Artist: Janet Jackson
Current Support: 539 signatures
Convincing Petition Argument: “It's time for forgiveness and an amazing halftime show!”
Suggested Artist: Iggy Azalea
Current Support: 189 signatures
Convincing Petition Argument: “Iggy Azalea is just an amazing performer, and one of the biggest female rappers out there, and could invite so many special guests like Ariana Grande, Charli XCX, Rita Ora, Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez etc.”
Suggested Artist: Gucci Mane
Current Support: 127 signatures
Convincing Petition Argument: “The Trap God will put on the most lit show! And the Falcons are playing, it's meant to be!”
