Another year, another Super Bowl and another crappy Super Bowl half-time show.
I don’t know if there’s too much hype, or that our expectations had been weened in years past to expect a lot of half time shows, but I think whoever has been setting up these things have just been making crappy decisions for several years now.
For example, was there any singing at this year’s half time show? Sure, they hit a few notes, but there wasn’t a lot of it, and what was there was weak!
Somebody get me a good half time show one of these years, would ya? Or just can it and have something stupid. At least our expectations won’t be raised and failed miserably!
That was Beyonce bad! And more of a bust than previous years, even, pun intended!
The Super Bowl half-time shows are a spectacle on their own. In recent years, it seems they’re only memorable for bad reasons, though. For example, the Black Eyed Peas’ 80s TRON show, the Who’s WHAT? show, and don’t even get me started on Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction!
So this year, they had Madonna. With her, they brought on the Romans, which somehow turned into a cheerleading squad, with a tinge of gospel at the end.
Earlier this week, Elton John had some blunt advice for Madonna, who was headlining the Super Bowl XLVII half-time show.
“Make sure you lip-sync good.”
– Washington Post (Jan 31 2012)
Elton the John was apparently still miffed at his error of predicting Madonna’s Globe nomination loss when she won just a couple of weeks earlier, exposing his ego, stupidity and poor sportsmanship. (Washington Post, January 17, 2012)
That said, the lip syncing is probably necessary during the carnival these Super Bowl half-time shows are. So I want to know what you thought of Madonna’s lip syncing? Answer in the poll below, and leave a comment if you like.
