The news that Madonna will appear at Super Bowl Xlvi will (possibly) have you cheering with delight or shaking your head in dismay – as these recent half-time shows prove

Best of all, he finished with a brilliant version Purple Rain played under pouring rain, almost making it appear as though he had the ability to bend even the weather to his will. The one to beat.

This weekend is going to be a massive one for the worlds of music, television and sports. The Super Bowl is finally here, and the fact that the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers will be squaring off against one another to determine who is this year's NFL champion is only about the fifth-most important thing happening over the next few days. In addition to the game, there will be the headline-grabbing advertisements (including a number of movie trailer premieres and appearances by both Justin Bieber and Eminem), the new episode of "Glee" that will follow the big game (which features the much-talked-about "Thriller" sequence), the national anthem care of Christina Aguilera (which bodes well for the Steelers) and the fact that this could be the most-watched American television broadcast in history (besting last year's Super Bowl, which drew 106.5 million viewers).
