SAINTS & STARS by Elizabeth Searle
The Saints were the all-stars of the night– down to the littlest Saint, Drew Brees’ photogenic baby son. What about the nights’ less saintly stars?
Pondering Superbowl Haltime Show hits and misses, Jim Balint of BleacherReport somewhat wistfully recalled the controversy and buzz surrounding Justin Timberlake & Janet Jackson’s infamous ‘wardrobe malfunction’ and commented: “Bringing in noted “bad boys” The Rolling Stones and Prince notched 89.9 million and 140 million viewers for their respective halftime shows. It’s clear the American public responds to possible scandal.”
This year, the classic band & CSI theme-songsters THE WHO took centerstage. A ‘scandal’ lurks in the background, but not one folks are likely to want to buzz long about: internet porn charges vehemently denied by Pete Townsend. Scandals and accusations aside, how did The Who do?
Like Carrie Underwood belting out this year’s national anthem, they performed solidly and soulfully. But did the 2010 entertainers meet or near highwater Halftime Show marks set by an airbourne Michael Jackson? Or No Doubt and Sting sending a memorable ‘Message in a Bottle’?
What were your own favorite Halftime Show moments– from last night or years gone by? Are the commercials the real entertainment stars these days (this year: the orca whale in the bridgestone tire ad)? ‘Who’ would have been your own dream choice as a Halftime Star act worthy of the Sainted 2010 Superbowl?
