they played the halftime show at our grey cup here some years ago and put on a much better performance, it was more geared to the music. that t-pain midi vocal stuff was getting annoying
I left the room, but it sounded like a Karaoke bar from the next room. It was horrid.
couldn’t agree more! But, Ahhhha, those PACKERS
that slash thing was over the top funny, she tried to sing and dance exactly how the lead singer from gun’s n roses does. with all the lawsuits between them he must have been seething, lol
She looks better than him, but sounds worse … which I didn’t think was possible.
I know what the problem was … not enough cow bell.
The performance was much less than mediocre. They really sucked. Bright spot was what was going on around them. I thought that was pretty cool.
I’d been embarrassed if I was slash also.
Is that a demented relative of Christopher Walken on the left?
Agreed – TOTALLY horrible. Why? Because the Black Eyed Peas are horrible, that’s why. To me they epitomize everything that’s wrong with music these days – tuneless, unfunky, in a word, lame. (Although I DID purchase that tune “Borderline” – it’s actually quite good)
To be a little bit fair, however, the Super Bowl is NOT the best venue for acoustics OR performance. Only a few have ever played that gig successfully.
I’d like to see a trend where the “Best New Artist” Grammy winner also gets the “honor” of playing the Super Bowl halftime show – that way, if a newcomer is truly worthy, they’ll establish their careers, but if they’re lame, it’ll be the kiss of death and they’ll quickly vanish from the scene
BTW – one of my best friends was in a Super Bowl commercial – in the Budweiser ad set in an Old West saloon, my friend Andy Sensenig played the bartender

What about Agullera pooching the National Anthem?
Well I thought their first big single “Where Is the Love?” was great. but i’ve never considered them decent live performers. Were they calibrated at -18dBFS ?
I totally loved the half time show. Best one ever.
And I am old enough to have seen all 45 of them.
Ben Vereen would have been proud.
I liked it because it’s the future.
To each his own.
Which National Anthem?
Umm, I dunno, let’s see here - which National Anthem do they sing before the start of a sporting event that takes place in the USA between two teams from the USA? Hmmm…could it be the USA National Anthem, aka The Star Spangled Banner?
Oh yeah – I bought that one , too. So I guess they’re okay as singles artists… I’d never buy an album, though
Hook, Line, Sinker.
