Black Eyed Peas: Perhaps a Moment of Silence
Black Eyed Peas Do Their Best To Make People Leave Room at Half
The Super Bowl never fails to disappoint. There have only been a handful of times that the game actually met or exceeded expectations. Now take that sentiment and multiply it by four. That is what you got at half time at Super Bowl XLV.
The entertainment was provided by the Black Eyed Peas, once cutting edge artists that sold their sold for pop. Not even a cameo from rock legend Slash could save them. Fergie was flat, the stage was odd and I was left thinking I had just eaten some bad mushrooms.
But this is what always happens at halftime at the Super Bowl. A great lineup is forced to polish their act for the masses. What you get is neither surprising nor eventful, save the Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunction.
So while the Black Eyed Peas labored on, I was forced to ask why we don't just turn the television off at the half? The advertisers feel the same way. The worst of the commercials were played during the half.
A portion of the game that never gets it right should just be axed altogether. Put on Howie Long and the boys, they may be over the top at times. But they are better than what the Black Eyed Peas gave us.
