I don’t know about you, but the Half Time Show for Super Bowl 2011 was painful to watch. It wasn’t the electric unitards that the extras wore. It wasn’t the odd sci-fi Tron-esque apparence of the Black Eyed Peas who looked really uncomfortable in their outfits, rather it was the performance by Fergie that gave us pause. It made us question whether it is time for Fergie to just give it up or perhaps it’s a simpler answer, just fire the sound guy. During the Super Bowl Half-Time show, Fergie not only didn’t bring the magnetism or the chemistry, but her vocals, the way they were mixed pr presented for TV, just did not sound good. Kudos for not lip-syncing
but this is a perfect example of why lip-syncing is such a good tool. The whole performance was just awkward with countless people watching at home cringing with a mixture of pity and pain while watching the performance. It was not dynamic, it was not dynamite, it was not worthy of Super Bowl greatness.
