The Super Bowl is one of the most-watched U.S. television broadcasts of the year, attracting many companies to spend millions of dollars on commercials. This has caused the starting time of the game to be pushed back later and later, to ensure the Sunday night prime time audience on the East Coast. The last true day game (which ended before local sunset) of the series was Super Bowl XI in January 1977.

In addition, many popular singers and musicians have performed during the Super Bowl's pre-game and halftime ceremonies. This is the second-largest U.S. food consumption day, following Thanksgiving.

Janet Jackson Super Bowl

During the halftime show of Super Bowl XXXVIII on February 1, 2004, Janet Jackson performed with Justin Timberlake to a live audience of more than one hundred million people. During the Super Bowl performance, Janet Jackson sang along with Timberlake on his song "Rock Your Body". When Timberlake sang the lyric "gonna have you naked by the end of this song," he tore open Janet Jackson's top; exposing her right breast, which was partially covered by a nipple shield. Timberlake called the incident during the Super Bowl, a "wardrobe malfunction." Janet Jackson apologized, calling it an accident and that Timberlake was supposed to pull away the bustier and leave the red-lace bra intact; however, she later said to an interviewer for Genre magazine that she wishes she had not apologized at all.

CBS, the NFL, and MTV (then one of CBS's corporate siblings), which produced the halftime show of the Super Bowl, denied all responsibility under a hail of controversy. Janet Jackson and Timberlake confirmed those denials, but the FCC continued an investigation. As a result, CBS invited Janet Jackson to appear at the 2004 Grammy Awards ceremony to make another public apology. She declined, but Justin Timberlake apologized and appeared as both a performer and a presenter.

Jermaine Dupri, Janet Jackson's boyfriend, left his post on the Grammy Awards committee after Janet Jackson refused to apologize again for what happened at the Super Bowl. Since 2004, there have been rumors that the couple married, though they have constantly denied these reports. Dupri appeared in Janet Jackson's video for "I Want You", while Janet Jackson returned the favor by appearing in Dupri's video for his 2005 single, "Gotta Getcha".

In April 2004 she released her eighth studio effort, Damita Jo, with a debut at number two and opening week sales of nearly 400,000 copies. The songs released from the album, including the Prince-inspired "Just a Little While," the Motown/Supremes-inspired ballad "I Want You," and "All Nite (Don't Stop)," also performed modestly on the charts. Janet Jackson described the album as a portrait of the many personalities living inside her. Damita Jo sold over three million copies world wide and received nominations from the American Music Awards, Billboard Awards, Source Music Awards, BET Music Awards and Grammy Awards including Contemporary R&B Album of the Year.

Janet Jackson appeared as a host on Saturday Night Live on April 10, 2004, where she performed a skit that parodied the Super Bowl incident. Janet Jackson also appeared in the sitcom Will & Grace playing herself as Jack auditioned to be her back-up dancer.

Janet Jackson became the most-searched for person on the Internet in 2004. Janet Jackson was also the most-searched of 2005 on

On June 15, 2005, Janet Jackson was awarded a Humanitarian Award by the Human Rights Campaign, a national gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender civil rights organization on behalf of her work and involvement in raising money for AIDS charities. She accepted the award saying, "what I've learned in these recent months is that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and it's real, it's a beautiful light that both comforts our minds and strengthens our souls. Tonight my heart is filled with gratitude for that light. I'm so grateful that prayers are answered, that faith is rewarded and tolerance is celebrated as a virtue. I'm grateful that God is of unconditional love."
