Does anyone else think that was the worst halftime performance in several years? The Black Eyed Peas sounded terrible, even with autotune. Slash's guitar playing and Usher's dancing, especially when he jumped over will.i.am, were both good. However, this only underscored the weakness of the Black Eyed Peas, having to resort to other entertainers to make their show suck less.
It wasn't good by any means, but I'm all for putting new acts out there instead of believing that music stopped being made in 1978.
Haha yeah,it sucked. But even worse was Christina Aguilera mangling the national anthem before the game...
It was truly horrific. I wanted to throw things at the TV, not that such a thing is unusual when I see Fuggie.
Nonetheless, they were even worse than I anticipated. Also, it's sad that they get one shot to perform on such a huge stage, and they rely on a COVER and SOMEONE ELSE's musicianship for the "highlight". And actually, that Dirty Dancing thing is essentially a cover too. And that surfing song.
I think this sums up my feelings for the BEPs, and Fuggie in particular:
Frankly, I like Black Eyed Peas. And I think Fergie is hotter than Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and all those other lilywhite girly girls lumped together.
I intentionally missed the show. I went out to run an errand at the start of halftime.
I did see some of the dancing through the windows of bars. Their choreography looks even more ridiculous if you can't hear the music.
I'm not against using modern acts, but they should use modern acts that have a fan base of more than just top 40 listeners.
The worst part is that after the halftime show the NFL aired a commercial using the Black Keys' "Howlin' for You." It was like the NFL wanted to rub it in that they're aware that good music exists, but they're not going to put it in the halftime show.
Ms. Aguilera has yet to make an album that's regarded as a classic. Same for Britney Spears, though (Blackout, her most acclaimed, still isn't a top 3000 entry).
Janet Jackson indeed has gotten off th track- the 2000s were not goof for her, artistically. She's probably my second or third top female, but what gets me is the constant rehashing in her tours. Michael Jackson was the same. I know some fans love seeing the classic moves from the videos over and over again, but I'd like some change.
The national anthem was much worse than the halftime show, a complete train wreck even aside from the mangled line.
I enjoyed the entertainment value of having Slash and Usher appear unexpectedly, but Fergie's shout-singing was abysmal. I didn't have any sort of expectations for the performance, though, so I can't say I was disappointed.
I'm just glad I finally got to see the Captain America and Thor movie trailers.
I would rather see Pete Townshend's gut jiggle a million times while he tries to do windmills again then watch the Black Eyed Peas again.
That meth-face looks like a Farscape character to me.
I'm not sure who played worse:
The Steelers or the Peas.
30 posts and I still do not know what are you talking about ?
Some helps ?!
So... Nickelback next year?
There's been a bit of talk of the original Guns N'Roses reforming for next year's superbowl. Got me thinking of who else could be candidates:
The Foo Fighters
Kings Of Leon
Dave Matthews Band
