The half time show at the Super Bowl is always one highly anticipated by attendees as well as viewers from home. We’ve seen some star studded lineups over the years, and this year was no different.

The Black Eyed Peas pulled out all the stops with plenty of glitz and glamor to wow those taking it in. The band is a good fit as a Super Bowl half time act. They have plenty of showmanship, entertainment abilities and draw to captivate the audience. What’s more, their music has been played regularly at sporting events for the last few years, both small and large.

Despite the foursome kicking things off with their hit “I Gotta Feeling,” the entire performance seemed to lack some pizazz. The Black Eyed Peas, instead of being larger than life, seemed to be more pea sized during their show. They didn’t have much in the way of choreography, and seemed a bit awkward lined up on stage.

Other artists made an appearance including Slash, playing “Sweet Child O’ Mine” and Usher with a couple of his tunes.

The only wowing part of the show was the singers dropping from the sky to the stage.

Overall it was more than a disappointment with so much potential and a captive live audience of 100,000 plus, along with millions of viewers.
