What makes big events like this really memorable are surprises, and Prince was an odd choice for a Super Bowl performer — a gamble, really. But it paid off. From his cover of “All Along the Watchtower”/”Best of You” to the Prince-symbol-shaped stage to his solo during “Purple Rain,” this turned out to be one of the most unexpectedly awesome Super Bowl halftime shows.

    I am not a massive huge Prince fan, but I listen to his performance every month at least once. He was incredible. God bless him!
