Playing NFL Legends Share Their Dream Performers for Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show

Bruno Mars is already confirmed to star in the halftime show at next year’s Super Bowl 50, and some other big names are reported to be joining him. But who could they be?

ET spoke to the NFL Network’s pro analysts -- all former players themselves -- on Wednesday, and asked the guys who they would pick for their dream halftime show.

"Put in Beyonce with Bruno, add Taylor Swift up there, all of them up there," said Dallas Cowboys great Michael Irvin. "It's Super Bowl 50, it doesn't get any bigger than that!"

Former running back Maurice Jones-Drew, who retired after last season and just made the transition to broadcasting, had a suggestion that would certainly draw the younger crowd.

"Drake would be a good one because we are trying to get a younger demographic," Jones-Drew told ET of his halftime picks. "Nicki Minaj, Carrie Underwood, try to hit different genres. I think that would be nice to try to touch everyone."

The NFL season kicks off Thursday night, and Irvin, Jones-Drew and their fellow broadcasters will be on hand to analyze the game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and defending Super Bowl champs New England Patriots. But the broadcast team is already thinking ahead to the championship game.

"I like John Legend," Terrell Davis weighed in. "I'm a John Legend kind of guy. I think that would be kinda cool to bring John in there with Bruno. You can't go wrong with a little Snoop Dogg, spice it up a little bit."

Former quarterback Kurt Warner, who has Super Bowl experience himself, liked the selections so far.

"Bruno is a blast," Warner told ET. "I loved Katy Perry last year, loved Bruno. I'm sure anybody that does it is gonna be great."

Super Bowl 50 airs Feb. 7, 2016 on CBS.
