2011 Super Bowl XLV Halftime Show: Aaron Rodgers First Half Performance Can't Overcome Awful Black Eyed Peas

The halftime show of Super Bowl XLV just wrapped up and it’s safe to say it was one of the worst things I’ve ever viewed on television. The Black Eyed Peas performed a medley of their “hits” and brought on Slash and Usher in an attempt to add something to the show. I’m OK with Usher and Slash can be pretty awesome, but nothing was saving this debacle.

At one point I was hoping Aaron Rodgers would come back on the field, start warming up, and peg each of the Peas in the head. We were not so fortunate. Instead we had to sit through what felt like an interminable show. The Bridgestone Halftime Show has been hit and miss over the years and this year definitely qualifies as a miss.

The good news is we might be looking at a really entertaining second half of football. The Packers seemed ready to put this game away early, but Ben Roethlisberger connected with Hines Ward to cut the lead to 21-10 heading into halftime. The second half kicks off in a few minutes with the Packers starting with the ball.
