That’s the million dollar question at this moment. Somewhere in the Internet world, the rumor has spread that the electro Pop/Hip-Hop group Black Eyed Peas will be perform during the half-time performance of Super Bowl XLV which will be at the brand new and over-the-top Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, TX.
With the rumor, comes the question whether the Black Eyed Peas are “Half Time Super Bowl”worthy or at least that’s the question The Washington Post proposes to their readers. And to that response and doing just a quick review of the BEPs album sales, “35 million albums worldwide and 21 million singles, and 56 million copies with both sales combined” and awards – “16 times Grammy nominated, 6 time Grammy Wins”, WHY THE HECK NOT?
Recognizing that the Super Bowl defitnitely has a very diverse audience and it is not easy meshing a 65 year old white man, a 35 year old Filipino lady, and a 18 year-old Hip Hop/Pop teenager together to find the perfect artist, there’s never going to be that perfect solution. I mean Michael Jackson is dead! By the way, we even still watched the dreadful half-time show last year in an effort to be open-minded about the situation!
Another reason why we think the Black Eyed Peas would be a great artist for the Super Bowl is because they are a group known for giving a full pledged production shpw filled with lights, flare, and a heath of energy (Football = Energy “Ive Got A Feeling”…, “Boom Boom Pow”… GET IT?). What better place to show off such a production than at the largest NFL stadium there is!!!
And while we all may be getting our hopes up and this all may be just a “rumor”, the buzz will only get bigger which will bring more attention to the fact that this NFL Super Bowl, whether its the BEPs or not, needs something different this year. At least we know Fox Sports Chief David Hill recognizes and agrees that it’s definitely time for some type of musical change come Super Bowl XLV.
