The Super Bowl XLV halftime show was full of energy, that's for sure. The Black Eyed Peas certainly looked like they wanted to put on a good show, and they recruited Usher and Slash from Guns 'N Roses to help make it happen. But in the end, was it good music?â†µ
SBNation.com's Andy Hutchins certainly didn't think so.
â†µâ†µCould this be the worst Super Bowl halftime show ever? Well, let's just say I think the "wardrobe malfunction" halftime will be remembered more fondly - and as a better-executed show.â†µ
The whole thing was about 12 minutes long, which is 12 minutes more than most people wanted. The show began with Black Eyed Peas classics "I Got A Feeling" and "Boom Boom Pow" before Slash emerged for a Fergie-sung rendition of "Sweet Child 'O Mine." As a huge fan of the original song, I'm very mad at Fergie for messing it up. Eventually, things continued with "Pump It" and "Let's Get It Started," with Usher descending for the end of the latter for a dance that included a nice split of sorts. Things ended with "Where Is The Love" and a will.i.am appearance in "The Time (Dirty Bit)."â†µ
So did you all like it? I thought it was pretty terrible myself, but maybe my disgust for The Black Eyed Peas is clouding my judgment.
