Super Bowl Sunday is almost upon us. As well as a tantalising match-up between Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos to look forward to, as always the half-time entertainment will be high on the agenda.Coldplay fly the British flag this year. But will their efforts match-up with our top five performances? Katy PerryPerhaps a somewhat surprising pick in the top five half-time shows, but be honest with yourselves, who didnt enjoy Perrys powerful performance from last years Super Bowl? It was somewhat lacking in subtlety, entering the stadium as she did riding atop a massive mechanical lion, during her opening number Roar, and bowing out with a literal bang as fireworks accompanied her closer, Firework. Katy Perry arrives in style during her Super Bowl show last year But throw in a couple more hits from the catalogue, a costume change or two and some cameos from Lenny Kravitz, Missy Elliott, and a certain dancing left shark, and you have a thoroughly entertaining fifteen minutes on your hands. No? Still not convinced? Just me then.PrinceMuch like Perry, Princes performance at Super Bowl 41 in 2007 was very literal too, although unintentionally so, closing with the epic Purple Rain during a torrential downpour in the Miami setting. Prince performs Purple Rain in the rain of Miami during half-time As well as further hits of his own - Lets Go Crazy and Baby, Im a Star - Princes setlist featured a whos who of classic rock covers, including Queens We Will Rock You, Foo Fighters Best of You, Creedence Clearwater Revivals Proud Mary, and Bob Dylans All Along the Watchtower. Whats not to like?U2With the world rocked after the tragic event of September 11, 2001, the half-time show at Super Bowl 36 less than five months later, took on greater emotional and cultural significance. Shouldering that responsibility were U2, with Janet Jackson, who was originally booked in, stepping aside - probably for the best given her half-time efforts a couple of years later, but more on that in a bit. U2 gave an emotional performance at the Super Bowl in 2002 shortly after the September 11 attacks U2 lifted things with a spirited rendition of Beautiful Day, before dedicating an emotionally-charged performance of Where the Streets Have No Name to the victims of the September 11 attacks, whose names were projected onto a screen behind the stage, Bono opening his jacket at the end to reveal the American flag printed into the lining.Bruce SpringsteenNotorious for his concerts running over due to his evergreen, energetic performances, there was a worry the football would be forgotten once Springsteen took to the stage at Super Bowl 43. That wasnt quite the case as the Pittsburgh Steelers clash with the Arizona Cardinals would prove to be one of the best season finales in recent memories, but The Boss interval efforts more than matched up. Bruce Springsteen is back on his feet (just!) during his energetic half-time Super Bowl show While top tracks Glory Days and Born to Run were obvious high notes, lets be honest, there is really just one thing the show will be remembered for, and thats Springsteen sliding straight into a camera as he literally tore into his opening number, Tenth Avenue Freeze Out. He recovered - albeit somewhat gingerly - gave a sheepish grin, and then rocked out, before hopefully giving his knees a good icing afterwards.Michael JacksonHe is the King of Pop for a reason. Jackson was largely responsible for the birth of another modern-day musical movement, the Super Bowl half-time show. Before Jacksons efforts at Super Bowl 27 in 1993, the game break mostly was a showcase for novelty variety acts and college marching bands. Michael Jackson kick-started the trend of big name acts performing at half-time in the Super Bowl Jackson changed all that, making quite the entrance, shooting up from under the stage, then standing motionless for a minute while the 100,000 strong crowd at the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles screamed in adoration. He launched into hits Billie Jean, and Black or White and ended things with Heal the World, as the world watched on - it was the first Super Bowl where the audience figures actually increased during the half-time show. His sister had a go a couple of decades later, with her efforts no doubt memorable, but for a very different reason.

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- The Knicks have put assistant coach Kurt Rambis in charge of their defense in an effort to clean up their most glaring issue amid a 2-4 start.The move, first reported by ESPNs Marc Stein, was made a day after the Knicks allowed 65 second-half points in a home loss to the Utah Jazz. Through six games, the Knicks rank 30th in defensive efficiency and have allowed 109.8 points per game.I just felt that were probably better off with just one voice, so Kurt, we are going to have him be the voice on the defense, coach Jeff Hornacek said.Previously, Hornacek suggested that the responsibility of forming a defensive game plan was shared among his assistants. Now, assistant coaches still will have input but it will be funneled through Rambis, who will in turn communicate it to Hornacek.When asked why Rambis was chosen to coach the defense rather than another assistant, Hornacek said, It couldve been anybody.It couldve been Jerry [Sichting], could have been Corey [Gaines]. We all talk as a coaching staff about the same things, he added. So Kurt had some of these guys last year. Just felt it was better to put him in that.Knicks president Phil Jackson considered hiring Rambis as his full-time head coach laast spring after he went 9-19 as an interim coach to end the clubs 32-win season.dddddddddddd. But Jackson ultimately decided to hire Hornacek, who in turn chose to retain Rambis as an assistant.Rambis was in charge of the Lakers defense when they went to back-to-back NBA Finals (2008, 2009). Those Lakers teams were strong defensively, finishing in the top 10 in defensive efficiency in each season. Rambis also served as a head coach with the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2009-10 and 2010-11. Those clubs struggled on defense, finishing 29th and 30th, respectively, in defensive efficiency.The Knicks worked mostly on defense in Tuesdays practice, specifically practicing their pick-and-roll coverage.After practice, Carmelo Anthony was asked if the players were comfortable with the decision to assign the clubs defense to Rambis.Whether were comfortable with it or not, it is what it is, and we got to buy into that and embrace that, he said. [We have to] just focus in on our schemes and what we want to do and just have kinda a foundation of how we gonna do it and what we gonna do and go by that.
