Besides, McCartney has done some work with MoTown artists in the past. So maybe he's not entirely seen as someone from "over there", if you will.

I will say the National Anthem was atrocious. I couldn't believe it. The year the Whitney Houston did the National Anthem was the best!

the britney spears/nsync/aerosmith(I think)/and nelly(I think) goes down as the worst HT show as I can't even remember everyone involved cuz I've tried to block it from my mind. the stones were absolutely pathetic though and I made use of the second half of their performance to make a bathroom run. I liked parts of the pregame show, but I couldn't hear what Stevie was singing half the time and the National Anthem has become painful to listen to. I like the idea of school marching bands and I'd like to see the National Anthem done by professional singers like broadway performers or people with a voice like the guy who does the NA for the NY Yankees. the last few National anthems performers that I really enjoyed were Ray Charles, Boyz 2 Men, and Whitney Houston.

Re: Worst Halftime Ever?

Why not Stevie Wonder himself? He goes with the over the hill theme that the NFL has taken because of the Janet Jackson incident.

Whoever was working the board for the Stones should be flogged. Everything was off, which is pretty inexcusable for a 10 minute set.

I agree with the anthem - there are things you can do to "personalize" it without trashing the whole song.

I'm talking about timing, not the initial mix. They forgot to turn up Ron Wood's guitar for his solo until about 5-10 seconds into it. Jaggar's mike was all over the place, although, you're right, it's hard to tell whether that was the board or just Mick forgetting to use the mike.

Re: Worst Halftime Ever?

Sound was terrible, performance was weak--though that could have been a result of the sound. But whatever: this is the biggest sporting event. Take some friggin time to make it all work!!! Pathetic. Bring back the boob!

(I don't know if this is the worst ever--lots of them suck. But it was up there...)

Your correct f-down! It was a joke! Sadly, the performers didn't realize it.

Re: Worst Halftime Ever?

Neville can sing; i just don't think his voice is suited for anything other than love ballads.

Re: Worst Halftime Ever?

As bad as it was I'll still take it over crap they've had in previous years.

The real halftime show as on Animal Planet. Anybody else catch the Puppy Bowl II yesterday? Exciting stuff!

Re: Worst Halftime Ever?

Anyone else catch the wardrobe malfunction?

When Stevie Wonder had his whole family up there and sounded like crap the dancer on left in the last song had her right strap break. She did the entire second half of the song with her right hand holding her top up as she danced her way off the stage.

We here all laughed.

The music sucked.

If you paid for a Stevie Wonder show you got ripped off as he had every inlaw and child onstage sounding like dallas.

I NEVER want to hear my National Anthem butchered like they did EVER AGAIN!

Puppy Bowl is awesome. I can watch it for hours. It's the perfect switch after watching all that network crap.
