9. Janet Jackson

Janet Jackson's infamous "wardrobe malfunction" is far and away the most famous moment in the history of the Super Bowl halftime show. Most people don't even remember anything else about the set. The show was produced by MTV, and they brought out P. Diddy, Nelly, Kid Rock and Justin Timberlake. It was a mega-medley of hits such as "Hot in Here," "Bawitdaba" and "Rhythm Nation" that culminated in "Rock Your Body" and an exposed nipple. Janet's career has yet to recover, and that was the last time the NFL put MTV in charge of the halftime show.
