The Super Bowl halftime show 2011 will be a big spectacle. Of course, if the Super Bowl halftime show 2011 doesn’t overshadow the game itself, that will be considered a victory for many reasons. Although it is one of the biggest gigs of the year, the only edition that anyone remembers is from 2005. Yet the insanity of “Nipplegate” and the debate over how explicit these shows are, eventually died down after a few years. As such, the Super Bowl halftime show 2011 has the Black Eyed Peas trying to get through unscathed.
After the infamous Janet Jackson/Justin Timberlake ordeal, acts like Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, Prince, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen and the Who took the reigns. They all avoided controversial nudity, as the show is now back to business and usual.
This year, the Super Bowl halftime show 2011 lets the Black Eyed Peas hold fans over until the second half. Fergie, Will.i.am, apl.de.ap and Taboo get to play a few of their big hits, which would likely include “I Gotta Feeling” “Boom Boom Pow” and “Rock That Body”
The Peas are certainly the youngest act to go on since the Jackson/Timberlake pairing, which may show that “Nipplegate” has finally settled down. After that incident, they went for older, legendary, and more safer performers to get things back on track.
The headliners for the Super Bowl halftime show 2011 aren’t explicit – but neither were Jackson or Timberlake before their duet. Nevertheless, the Black Eyed Peas bring more of a hip hop flavor to the big game than it has had in a while.
Although Fergie and will.i.am have become the big stars of the group, they haven’t completely gone off on their own yet. The Peas remain together, almost 25 years after the future will.i.am and apl.de.ap met as eighth graders. Once Fergie came on board about 10 years ago, the band took off into mega stardom, culminating in tonight’s performance.
While the Black Eyed Peas lead the Super Bowl halftime show 2011 ceremonies, they aren’t the only musical stars of the night. Usher and Slash are lending the Peas support during the show, with Christina Aguilera performing the national anthem. Glee’s Lea Michele is slated to sing “God Bless America” hours before her show’s special postgame episode.
But the main musical feeling will come from the Super Bowl halftime show 2011, and from the Black Eyed Peas. Viewers may talk more about the game than the music the next day, although that wouldn’t be a bad thing for the league. The Peas will still try to make their mark, sometime around 8 pm est on FOX.
