Yet another half-time failure

Although Greenbay won the game against the Steelers by a score of 31-25, the real story is the ridiculously funny/bad/embarrassing musical acts before the game and during half time (only because I can't bring myself to really care about football).

Obviously when you mess up your own national anthem when singing it at a sporting event, people are going to laugh, but when you mess it up at one of the largest sporting events on the planet, there's going to be a lot of negative attention coming your way.  Here is Christina Aguilera's performance before the game:



In my opinion this only happens because artists try to add their own artistis flares and flourishes to a song that doesn't need to be added on to or improved.  Although I'm not an American, I know I hate it when singers do that to our national anthem (Canada).  There's a reason it's called a "National" anthem, it doesn't need to be remixed or redone.

I'm also not a big Black Eyed Peas fan (I personally find Will.i.am's name alone infuriating) I almost peed my pants when I saw Slash and Fergie perform a duet to the tune of 'Sweet Child of Mine".  How Slash, BEP and Usher managed to get on the same stage, I have no idea, but it happened, and millions were disappointed I'm sure.



Something tells me we'll be hearing Axl's opinion on the performance in the near future.

  1. Oi I mentioned how horrible the BEPs sounded last night and my wife was like nah its not that bad but I'm glad to have the rest of the public (or 95%) of you who watched the game agree with me. The mic's sucked! Had the BEPs been a bit louder themselves it might not have seemed so bad.
    Just my 2c

  3. The second video isn't there anymore. Was looking forward to seeing it, though I likely would have been disappointed as well.

    Anyways, in regards to the first: She dun goofed.

  11. Seriously pop sensations ruin songs by over doing it. Less whoring over the mic its supposed to be about our independence not your singing "talent"

  13. I wonder if I'd look that stupid if somebody took a freeze frame of my face while I was singing?

    @Admin - As an Englishman I didn't watch the Superbowl.

  23. Many games like this have come and gone before. I remember once, at the Colloseum, the singer botched Romes anthem bad enough, we stoned her.

  24. Yeah... the halftime show was almost as big of a fuck up as the national anthem. BEP should never have tried to cover Guns 'n' Roses.

    As for the score, I'm so glad the Packers won. As a long term Bengals fan I couldnt stand to see Shittsburgh win another title!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh, the fail! :D

    Also, Slash is my gf's favourite guitarist. I can't wait for her to see this. :D

    Following and supporting! :)

  29. i really liked the people covered in lights, i thought that was the best part. it was probably very hard to co-ordinate so many people.
