Surely there's never been a better half time show:

    I used half time for a power nap so I could finish the game awake.
    Have heard the usual mix of…
    It was awesome, it was rubbish.
    Strangely aligned to peoples musical tastes.
  • 90s music kids all amazed that Snoop, Dre and Eminem now have total classics that work as mass entertainment.
  • NGL this music is my jam. Watching it on youtube now and it's awesome
  • When dre sits at the piano and you know exactly what's coming next...

    I don’t think anyone puts on a bad show.
    Just different people enjoy some more than others.
    It’s a frantic time squeezed effort.

    There has been some bad ones. Also, there's a tricky balance between putting on a show and just playing your hits (for example like The Who did) - that's not that interesting.

    Fair enough, I don’t recall any bad ones but I’ll not argue the point, I really don’t pay it much attention. As I say, I used last nights as a nap opportunity.

    Agree with you on just churning out hits. I thought the 2012 olympics closing ceremony was woeful for that reason, just a load of artists playing a song each. I spent a good while thinking the bands were an introduction to something interesting before finally recognising it was just a very expensive disco and turning off.

  • The Maroon 5 one was bad, but I've just watched as much of the Black eyed peas one as I could stand. If Fergie pretending to be Axl Rose is your idea of entertainment, it's a winner.
