Super Bowl Halftime Show Review

Let me just say congratulations to the Seattle Seahawks on being the winners of Super Bowl XLVIII. It was quite the performance by the Seahawks, but there was also another performance, The Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show. Now this was actually a highlight of the night, as the game was quite boring towards the end, and Bruno Mars did not dissapoint, but the Red Hot Chilli Peppers did.

Now the performance (un-traditional medley) started off in a very unusual way with a children’s chorus singing a heavily harmonized version of Travie McCoy’s and Mar’s “Billionaire.” This was followed by an awesome drum solo by Mars himself. His band then played a rendition of “Locked Out of Heaven” which was followed by “Treasure.” and an awesome version of “Runaway Baby.”

Now this is where the trouble started. The Red Hot Chili Peppers appeared, and started playing “Give it Away” now at the time I thought they sounded awesome, but just like Denver’s offense, they were there, but they weren’t playing. I mean Flea didn’t even have his bass plugged in (as seen in Exhibit A.) Anthony Kiedis sounded like he was singing live, as did Mars, but it didn’t seem like anyone cared whether or not it was live at the time.

Exhibit A.


The final song in the misguided medley was Mars’ hit “Just The Way You Are.” The song featured a touching military tribute, and again Mars sounded great. This was one of the better superbowl half time shows, but nothing will top Aerosmith’s Super Bowl XXXV half time show.

    I wasn’t a huge fan of the Aerosmith halftime, personally. I was, like, personally offended by Britney Spears’s presence there! I LOVED watching RHCP this, year, however. But nothing will top Prince for me.

    Agreed. I thought the show was good but not amazing. Usually I look forward to the additional acts that perform with the headliner of the show (and doubly so when I heard it would be RHC) but I was left with a very ho-hum feeling about the whole thing. :-/
