... and as included in the youtube description

American singer and musician, Prince, performed in the Pepsi Super Bowl XLI Halftime Show in 2007. The performance opened with a short rendition of "We Will Rock You" by Queen. Prince then sang hits from the Purple Rain album, "Let's Go Crazy" and "Baby I'm A Star" followed by cover versions of the Creedence Clearwater Revival hit "Proud Mary", the Bob Dylan composition "All Along the Watchtower", and the Foo Fighters song "Best of You". He then finished with his signature song, "Purple Rain".

The 12-minute performance featured Prince accompanied by two dancers he calls "The Twinz" and the Florida A&M University marching band, the Marching 100.

Prince played before 74,512 fans at Dolphin Stadium. The event was carried "to the biggest audience of his life - 140 million television viewers."

Overall, the show was energetic and quite well-received by the rain-soaked audience surrounding the stage. Music critics were extremely enthusiastic about his performance, one calling it "arguably the best halftime show in Super Bowl history", and others saying it was one of the best ever."
