Where is Weird Al? Why not give him the halftime show?
 
2013-01-30 01:26:26 PM
All those other shows only look bad in hindsight. When the Black Eyed Peas were on everyone, immediately, knew that it sucked
 
2013-01-30 01:26:44 PM
Worst: Black Eyed Peas, Super Bowl XLV

No need to specify a venue.

I just can't get enough of another Tribute To Something Theme with Patti LaBelle, Chaka Khan, Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, and a hundred other divas I can't remember warbling against a backdrop of fireworks and the Grambling State tuba players breakdancing while confetti false from the heavens and the moshpit goes nuts and then the camera pulls back to reveal the moshpit is about 30 people paid to go nuts at midfield while the rest of the thousands in the stadium listessly wave glowsticks and people home listessly sip on their beers or go take a leak.

I'll be eating nachos in the other room.

I'll never un-hear Fergie warbling "EVERY BODY IN HEEEERRRGGGHHHH". She practically discovered audible saltpeter that night.

/Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' halftime show was the best one

Bring back Prince!

I just watched Up With People, never having seen it before. Do people really not like that? I thought it was completely awesome.

Yeah it's not the Super Bowl but the opening of Skydome in Toronto with Alan Thicke and Glass Tiger was pretty special.

nja 8bit: Bring back Prince!


THIS. I'm really not a big fan of his, but his performace was almost spellbinding.

Paul McCartney's was pretty bad.....he was eager on getting his lame "Freedom" song adopted as the post 9/11 anthem and it was just a shiat song.

the Stones in 2004 or whatever just sounded awful, probably because, well, it was the Stones in 2004.  That was an awful performance.

Madonna's was pretty bad but mainly because it was just the wrong choice.  nothing gets me hyped for football like some fancyboy doing backflips, in a gold lame bikini, while some menopausal 59yr old dried up bag from Detroit with a shiatty fake English accent, sitting in a gold throne, watches him repeatedly slam his ballsack on suspended ropes.

I was annoyed that the only show in TFA that I wanted to watch again had no video so I dug a bit.

Prince 2007 - SB XLI
 
2013-01-30 01:46:36 PM
What about the year that the half time show was the wedding of Pac Man and Ms. Pac Man?
 
2013-01-30 01:46:42 PM
For all the hate on the BEPs in this thread, I thought that that show had a very compelling visual aesthetic.  There are lots of cases where I don't care for the artist, but enjoy the spectacle anyways.  BEP doesn't deserve the title of worst ever.

I blame the producers.  You would have thought that they might have thought to look at their Grey Cup halftime performance from 6 years earlier.

We warned them... BUT THEY WOULDN'T LISTEN!!!

/Can't wait until they have Bieber do a Superbowl so we can point and laugh again.

Grey Cup fans tried to warn you about the having the Black Eyed Peas as a halftime show, but you wouldn't listen.

ox45tallboy: Where is Weird Al? Why not give him the halftime show?



Because that would actually be entertaining.
 
2013-01-30 02:07:15 PM
Aren't they ALL the worst?

I've never seen a single one of these "shows" that I found entertaining (Prince was at least interesting, due to his rarity of being in public).

I only EVER watch them to see just how big of a train-wreck they can pull-off, and to see what fake "shock" event/"accident" occurs.

I did LOL hard at Ms. Jackson, staring at the ground while not reacting at all.

This is what happens when someone interrupts you before you can hit send, someone else brings up the whole Grey Cup fiasco.

We have to appease the meat-heads who only watch football as a shiny distraction from their meaningless miserable little lives.

I agree. I muted the second half of that halftime show and it was much more enjoyable. I plan to act similarly with Beyonce.

I am also in the Prince camp when it comes to best halftime shows. Also, the Who, despite all the cripple jokes, performed admirably in their attempt to keep people from taking a leak.

Prince's cover of "The Best of You" was awesome, particularly knowing that it was in response to the Foos' cover of "Darling Nikki".

I don't like U2, so you're clearly wrong.

Hydra: Has anyone mentioned that the Canadians tried to warn us about the Black Eyed Peas after the Grey Cup?


Yeah, Black Eyed Peas also win the "Worst Grey Cup Halftime Show Award", as well. I was there, live, and was thoroughly unimpressed.

These types of shows are better on TV, anyway, but the music was terrible and they were obviously going through the motions.

They all suck. Beyonce will suck, too.

 I remember watching the Prince halftime show with my jaw on the floor. It's not just that he's a great entertainer; the guy shreds. The penis thing was just bonus hilarity.
 
2013-01-30 03:11:06 PM
Go back to simple marching bands so the teams don't grow old in the locker rooms waiting for halftime to end.
 
2013-01-30 03:25:58 PM
No. Elvis Presto was the worst half time show. Watch it. I dare you. It is incomprehensible.
 
2013-01-30 03:27:10 PM
I've never understood how Timberlake walked away from the Jackson debacle without taking a career hit, while Jackson has been in celebrity nowhere ever since. He ripped off her top--she was clearly mortified. She should have sued for harassment/assault.

Thanks! Watching the Prince show I had forgotten how it was pouring rain out there and he still his thing.

My choice for the halftime show would be Lady Gaga and Sir Elton John.

Worst: Elvis Presto, "Diet Coke Be Bop Bamboozled in 3-D," Super Bowl XXIII

I was so fired up for 3-D.  It was so lame.  I thought our TV was broken.

I hope you're kidding. Do you really not understand why that wasn't negative for him while it was for her? I thought that was just the American way.

AC/DC until they can't anymore. Prince every year thereafter.
 
2013-01-30 04:03:42 PM
Wow, I'd forgotten just how terrible that BEP performance was. Almost too bad to even laugh at. I've watched every SB as far back as I can remember, and I've never watched a single halftime show. Never have, never will. I think about the only thing that could keep me from changing the channel is if the halftime show was just Kate Upton and Kelly Brook motorboating each other for 30 mins.

ACDC and Foo fighters here. ether I think could do a good job, but i'm not sure ether can do the mass spectical you'd expect from a superbowl show.
