Black Eyed Peas: Super Bowl Halftime Show!

Black Eyed Peas: Super Bowl Halftime Show!

The Black Eyed Peas rock Cowboys Stadium during the Super Bowl Halftime show on Sunday (February 6) in Arlington, Texas.

The group was joined by hundreds of dancers in suits covered in lights, which created designs all across the field!

The show started off with “I Got a Feeling” before Fergie was joined by Slash to perform Guns N’ Roses‘ “Sweet Child O’ Mine.” Next, Usher joined onstage for “O.M.G.”

The BEP finished off the show with “Where is the Love” and “The Time (Dirty Bit).”

FYI: Fergie is wearing over $2 million worth of Harry Winston diamonds! is wearing Mykita “Gordon” sunglasses.

    kit foxx Says:

    Im a raver by trade, I love lights and electronic music. But i have a respect for real music. The show this year was a failed attempt of taking a Rave style show and trying to condence it to 15 minutes. Epic fail….The lights are supposed to accent the feel of the music, which wasn’t good at all. i remember when i was a kid, they actually had good shows, this just sucked.

    Meh leave my rave stuff at the raves, and have a traditional show next year, no light, nothing shiny, just good musicians.

    offensive. i can not believe that, with so many talented musicians out there, these people were paid to do that.

    LadyB Says:

    The songs they sang was good. It was the sound that made the show terrible. I kept on waiting for someone to turn on the volume or the bass. Yeah, it did sound karoke. But I thought they would have gone through sound check dueing rehersals.

    Also, funny how they condensed all of there hit songs in such a short period of time…meaning > crap music <. Im sick of auto tune….if you can’t sing live THEN DON’T !!

    Justin Griffin Says:

    The art in creating the BEP’s music happens in the studio, not in their voices. They’re almost more techno than anything….. because of this they shouldn’t do shows. Their music doesn’t suck, but they’re trying to be Celine Dion or something when their music is more Daft Punk-ish.

    Ginger Says:

    They were horrible singing all their songs!!! And there weren’t even a LIVE BAND for them to sound horrible! Lawdy! And Usher came and sang three words and THAT’S IT!!! What is the point of giving him the mic!?!??!?

    Even though they did pump up the audience, their singing and performance was horrible!!!!! They should’ve brought Axl Rose to sing “Sweet Child O’ Mine”.. Fergie was terrible singing it!! She can’t do live shows. She is better singing behind closed doors in a recording studio.

    Though those bright neon suits got my attention. But all of those dancers were so off, I couldn’t helping laughing… And I’m sure they practice maybe a day or two for their numbers, it seems??

    In watching them perform their collage of songs I realized that ALL their songs sound exactly the same, couldn’t even tell where one began and ended…it was bad. Hope they stop making and ruining classic songs. To think that they consider themselves artists…hahaha what a joke.

  94. 94

    Ugh…there are two types of musicians in the world: real musicians who sound great live and in the studio (Queen / Muse anyone?) and ersatz ones who should be limited to radio time (Pop artists). They should hire the Glee cast to perform at the next one: at least they can sing.

  95. 95
    rhonda Says:

    That had to be the worst halftime show in history. BEP’s singing was atrocious.. Fergie sounded washed out and what is with the dude with the autotuen?? please soooo overdone about 30 years ago. lol And Slash?? Cheesy! and Usher?? was he really singing? Obviously BEP wasn’t good enough to do the show alone.. they had to bring in help which didn’t help a bit. The only mildly interesting part of show were the lighted dancers….. Compared to the Who and the Rolling Stones.. this was just sad and embarrassing.

    JD Says:

    I remembered when Prince performed back in 2007. That was one of the best halftimes in recent years, and it was raining! I usually love the BEP but they don’t make good music like they used to. It’s like they forgot their original formula and is trying to keep up with what’s popular now. This performance wasn’t so good. It was like the music wasn’t loud enough and there mics weren’t leveled correctly if that makes sense. I like when everything just flows together… especially when you’re doing a medley of hits, and somehow everything got lost in translation. It was kinda messy.

  98. 98
    Rayplumas Says:

    This cured me of watching the half time ‘entertainment???’ Terrible spectacle, the sounds were not even close to what the Black Eyed Peas play. All the mean faces sure made us feel good!! What a waste of good airtime, great for potty break and food though.

    Worst half time ever!!

    Shockingly horrible. You know, BEPs, if you’re gonna try to get by with NO MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS and call yourself a band, at least be sure you can SING AT LEAST A LITTLE BIT!! Even with the gimmicky pitch correction, you couldn’t approach the right notes on your OWN SONGS! Worse than karaoke! As if Aguilera hadn’t embarrassed the USA enough for one day, the world had to witness your **** halftime show. Be ashamed!

    Tam2 Says:

    Horrid. Fergie needs to die. She was flat or completely off key the whole time. Sound guy had a tough job deciding when to turn her up or turn her off so he’s forgiven for the initial flub with her mic… She also had a few moments of 40+ wigger dancing, and some choice moments of looking into the camera like a 4 year old trying too hard at a talent show looking for mommy’s approval… Usher and Slash? Did they pick names out of a hat? Fergie should NOT have attempted Sweet Child of Mine… Though the BEP’s outfits were straight up Tron rip offs, The lights were cool. Could have done without the dancing fake marching band as well, though… or maybe put lights on them too.

  113. 113
    Tam2 Says:

    @WICKED WENCH: Actually the cast of Glee really can’t sing all that well. a couple of them, yes, but the vocal tracks on the show are autotuned beyond recognition.

    vroomvroombetty Says:

    I liked it. Live singing always sucks especially in that big of an arena! I enjoyed it. It was entertaining. Usher also hardly sings during th OMG song, because he is also a dancer and you can’t really sing and do an amazing dance like that. You run out of breath quick! He is an amazing performer.

    Rick Says:

    The half time show SUCKED… Black eye peas were terrible.. I was actually waiting for them to perform… They sounded terrible…They were even doing cover songs from Other bands… TSK TSK>>>DISGACEFUL………… Usher is a no talent.. But I guess he has to have more talent that the Black eye peas cause they invited him to help perform on their show…Overall the Halftime show was a BIGGGGGGGGGGGG YAWN……………………………………

    It was sooo terrible! I felt embarrased for Fergie. I thought that she could sing but I stand corrected.

  117. 117
    Anna Says:

    Fergie didn’t sing well in any of her parts and the guys couldn’t really make up for her off pitched and raggy parts. She put slash to shame with how she was performing. I am not surprised they didn’t do very well because Fergie seems like she is 50/50 all the time, either there or she’s not there at all. The black eyed peas all together were never amazing live. I think Ushers little bit was better than the whole thing combined, and I don’t even like Usher.

    The lights were cool though and the stage, as usual.

    jetsfan Says:

    The sound man should be fired for this one. Though I thought it was a bad halftime show, it was only due to the fact that the sound man couldnt get his crap together. I mean really, he didnt even unmute fergie’s mic until halfway through her first verse. The only reason they were screaming at times is because they didnt have enought volume in their mics so they were trying to compensate for it. The Black Eyed Peas are usually great live, and I have seen them several times live.

    Worst half-time show ever? It was like Tron meets 1984 set to the soundtrack of a really bad karaoke-cover-band with a special “Spinal-Tap” entrance. The only thing that would have saved it was if one of the pea’s wires got stuck 10 feet from the ground and they had to perform the skit suspended over the stage. And Slash and Usher… what did they do, send out a call for anyone that was needing a few bucks to join in the train wreck? All they needed was Billy Idol and a couple backstreet boys to round out the cast. I did like the MC Hammer pants on Usher – WTF?

    I stole this from someone else but it still needs to be said, they need to change their name to the CRAP EYED PEAS.

    That was bad. I just love “Where Is The Love” though… and I love Usher even tho this is in my opinion one of his worst songs ever. But the peas were bad, but at least it was entertaining

    “The impact of the show has to be the astounding thing, not the dressing of it. The dressing of a show is just a dressing its sorta the perfunctory kind of thing , you can dress a show with a trillion dollars worth of goodies but if the show is not substantial, there will be no impact.”

    Fergie should have used the 2 million for vocal lessons instead of buying diamonds. Worst Halftime show ever.

    They sounded good, the sound system sucked. I have seen them live &…OMG! I am certain some serious talk took place with the technicians! Jeez, why can they put on football games that size & hardly ever, year after year after year…have sound systems/technicians that don’t know a thing. It is not the first time that someone awesome sounded like crap, thanks to the bad sound.

    One of the better super bowl half time show since Janet Jackson fiasco. All those old farts complain about the show, but get real people. Blacked eyed peas brings good entertainment to the stage. The overall show with the volunteer dancers and tron-isk movement was great.

    It’s too bad there were audio issues the made the show less stellar than it should have been. But you have to admit times have changed and atleast some older rockers are not on stage and putting us to sleep. Atleast we were awake this time.

    The vocals were really bad!!!!! They need to focus on the main entertainers and forget about all the extra people on the field!! Slash was very good!!! They forgot to do a sound check!!! It really did suck. Christine A. needs to learn the words to the national anthem. She has one of the best voices of all time!!!!!

    It was LIVE people. They were not lip syncing.They write their own music, compose and orchestrate all the sound effects them selves, are original and fun. To qouteFergie in the song she did with Nellie, ” I knows that I’m fine and all of you haters can kiss a behind, specifically speaking I’m talking bout mine.” Maybe you shoule get off the sofa and stop eating Doretoes and work HALF as hard as she has, First being a child star then getting noticed in her all girl band then joining the boys in the BEP. ALL the while keeping in fabulous shape. I grew up in the 70′s with Petty and Springsteen. Like them both and have their CD’s. But for a half time show…. talk about boring. They couldn’t even get it together to have their lips match the music. Fergie was “wow” in Sweet Child of Mine and I love her Amy W “Rehab”. She can do it ALL. Slash and Usher thing ..but to each his own. The Black Eyed Peas burst with creativity. I’ll listen to them and move around when I’m 100. Love you guys! Keep “pumping” out the hits and making the BIG money. Love you!

    The choreography and set design were fantastic. The music really sucked. This group should not have been playing at a Super Bowl. The Super Bowl is attended by an older audience ($2,300+ tickets, remember?) Should have been an act more in line with past groups–Tom Petty in 2009, Bruce Springsteen in 2010, etc..

    It was different from the album. but I still think we should give them a bit more respect in the comments here. Anyways- I still enjoyed the artistic creativity and their music gives off a feeling of celebration. That’s what its all about.

    Truth Serum 7 Says:

    From the TV. POV. The performance was great. Every song played seemed to pump movement into the stadium. Their style was classic BEP. I appreciate the planners for not making them play country to please the masses, I’d consider that lame. They did a great job. Those who think otherwise would only be pleased if the halftime show was done their way, but would never admit their selfish agenda. Also, The “Box Head Revolution” was probably the reason for the boxes, interesting fit for the performance. It was like dropping a quantum physics question on 1st graders, they only see the boxes not the meaning.

    Agree with all comments on BEP..but has everyone forgotten about the horrible Who half time show at last year’s Super Bowl? BEP was better than Who…which isn’t saying much

    the Darkness Says:

    Fergie is hot I love her and I like the BEP’s. However, it seems more and more that todays “talent” is to dependant on the machines and computers in the studios to alter and tweak their sounds/voices whatever. Sooooo when they go to do it live… it really doesnt come close to sounding good. I think this is the problem with BEP because their live performances really are not that great, but they wooo you with lots of pretty visuals and effects and it gives the illusion the performance was good…but it’s really not.

    scaryassclown Says:

    I think the bad sound mixing and the bad selection of camera angles (must they really shift angles all the time and not focus on the holistic view of the entire act????) made the performance terrible. Not that Black Eyed Peas is already bad as it is…but to ruin a well prepared performance?–it’s the director and the sound engineer’s fault! If you would notice, the people who are supposed to be glow in the dark had a well-choreographed move but you would hardly notice it co’z the camera shifts angles every second. why cant they just have like four angles and all of ‘em focused on the entire act?

    Ben Says:

    I actually didn’t dislike Black Eyed Peas until this performance (mostly becuase I had wisely avoiding their pop-drawl for years). I was able to shock myself into announcing to my also very disappointed friends that I finally found music I wanted to listen to even less than lady Gaga. Even after upwards of seven beers I found this grating to my senses. There was a collective cringe across all North America that day.

    Anyone who liked it is either an impressionable consumer-sheep, or just plain deaf.
