The Black Eyed Peas performed at the Super Bowl halftime show and while the sound malfunctioned, the entertainment quality was amazing.
Fergie, Will.i.am, Apl.de.ap, and Taboo came down on platforms from the ceiling. They started on a circular stage with “groupies” on the field who were in white light up jumpsuits. They did a medley of their most popular songs including I Got a Feeling, Boom, Boom, Pow, and Let’s Get it Started. They were joined by legendary guitarist Slash and by recording artist, Usher, for portions of the show.
The Black Eyed Peas did not disappoint, if you can get over the over produced, robotic sound, and the fact that they shouldn’t have performed live (it’s one time people were begging for lipsynching!). Their round stage ended up being the “O” in the word “Love,” and the light up body suits looked cool in the dark stadium.
The whole point of the half time show is to break up the game and to provide entertainment. Apparently robotic voices and a slaying of Sweet Child of Mine (thanks, Fergie), is good enough for the Super Bowl. What did you think?
