Fresh from Katy Perry's MIND-BLOWING performance at the 2015 Super Bowl, we take a look at which stars are some of the world's top picks to take on the halftime show spot next year. Who's your money on?
RiRi is BIG news right now, after returning with new single 'FourFiveSeconds', and with her new album 'R8' coming SOMETIME this year. Early 2016 could be the perfect time to showcase her newest singles and maybe even tease what's NEXT for the Bajan superstar. Plus she's not exactly short of a few pop star pals to jump on stage with her either! Picture: Splash
This may well be a long shot... but can you IMAGINE if we got a joint headline halftime show from RiRi and 'Ye? They've already teamed up several times and recently played a 10 minute joint set together on the weekend of the Super Bowl 2015. Surely that hints at being a bit of a dress rehearsal for next year?
2015 looks set to be Taylor Swift's year, thanks to the success of '1989' and plans for a brand new world tour. Could this all just be set-up to cap off her '1989' era with a grand show of epic proportions? Judging from fan comments on Twitter... this is the 2016 Super Bowl show YOU really want. Picture: PA
He had a taste of what to expect from the Super Bowl as one of Janet Jackson's (infamous) guests back in 2004, but next year could be Justin's year to shine all on his own. Chances are he could have new music by then, and as one of the world's biggest male superstars, isn't it time for a gentleman to headline the Super Bowl halftime show? Picture: Getty
Another star fans are DESPERATE to see headline the biggest stage of them all is Justin Bieber. With a new album in the works, it looks like late 2015 could mark the moment Justin returns to the spotlight with his music. So what better time to show his complete transformation into a mature artist than at the Super Bowl? Plus you just KNOW he wouldn't be able to keep his clothes on the whole way through!

It's almost hard to believe that Mother Monster hasn't headlined the halftime yet, despite being one of the world's biggest phenomenons. And now that Lady Gaga is hard at work on the follow-up to 'ARTPOP', fans are CLAMOURING for 2016 to be the year of Gaga! Do you agree? Picture: Splash
Like JT, Usher had a bit of a taste of the Super Bowl glory as one of Black Eyed Peas' special guests in 2011, but with SO many amazing hits under his belt and a new album on the way, Usher would make the perfect charismatic performer to headline the stage for 2016. Picture: Getty
'99 Problems' rapper Jay-Z is arguably the biggest hip-hop star of them all and he's got COUNTLESS friends in the business. Sounds like a recipe for success to us!
Chris Martin and co have been global superstars for a long time now, and they're definitely no strangers to the stadium setting! Judging from fan reaction on Twitter, it looks like everyone can't wait to get an extra special dose of Coldplay sometime soon, and these four definitely have the star power - and the hits - to pull it off on that Super Bowl stage.
She's working on new music right now, and as the original Princess Of Pop, there's no doubting that Britney has the starpower to take on the Super Bowl halftime show, with hits like 'Toxic', 'Work Bitch' and 'Baby... One More Time' bound to be crowd pleasers. Could this mark Britney's latest return to the spotlight?
Just THINK of the aerial displays this lady could come up with if she timed her next album with a return to the stage at the Super Bowl 2016. Pink NEVER fails to impress during her live shows, with pitch-perfect vocals and acrobatic displays that would be right at home with the celebratory nature of the sports event. We say, bring it on PINK! Picture: Getty
This one's a bit of a long shot, but could 2016 be the year things go a little old school and celebrate the legacy of one of the greatest bands of all time, Queen? With Adam Lambert regularly fronting the band's vocals in place of the late Freddie Mercury, this could be TRULY incredible! Photo: Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP
