    Paula at Superbowl Half. Halftimes have become a joke these days! Is this setting stage for surprise?

    Check out her most recent meltdown at an airport where she started screaming uncontrollably and flipping out. They're nuts if they hire her.

    Paula Abdul may be the single most important figure in the history of professional sports cheerleading. Furthermore, I think she made one of the great music videos of all time, plus several of the honorable-mention ones.

    Even so, I have no idea why anybody would hire her for a big gig at this point.

    My vote for halftime would have been either AC/DC or ZZ Top. Now that says football (at least to me anyway). After the past couple of years, I'm surprised they didn't try to book Clay Aiken. :eek:

    I hated the stupid dancing cat music video and when that came out i was under 10. There was just no reason to put a stupid cat that almost tried to resemble a gangster in a music video. I mean the song was opposites attract but i dont think gangster cats with tiny mohawks and one pierced earing were the idea Abdul was trying to go for. If so then shes more of a freak than any of us ever knew.

    I mean look at this stupid cat.

    Is there a reason it seems that too many superbowl half times recently feature musicians who are just too old?

    Last Year -- Prince -- 20 years past his prime
    2 Years Ago- Rolling Stones -- 30 years too late
    3 Years Ago Paul Mcartney -- 40 years

    I used to feel like you about Bon Scott and the new guy (don't know his name) but after watching scads of videos of him, and after seeing him live, I will admit that his scratchy voice has grown on me.

    Is the Super Bowl on FOX this year? That is the only way I can see this making sense, you know, to tie in an adverisement for that American Idol show alot of people have not heard of. :rolleyes:

    They might be better off getting Britney.

    ...and not American. Although U2 had, IMHO, the best SB halftime show ever.

    Huh, I just looked and, from what I can tell, Tom Petty is still performing. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

    Could be like Super Bowl XXXV in '01 that had Aerosmith, 'N Sync, Britney Spears, Nelly, Tremors & The Earthquake Horns, and Mary J. Blige on the bill. All I could say about that show was Oy Vay...

    I like Kid Rock and Justin Timberlake is tolerable. Any chance of them doing a halftime show?

    Brian Johnson is way better than Bon Scott. There's a reason why AC/DC reached its greatest levels of success after Scott managed to kill himself. I like AC/DC's early stuff (and no one else could ever do Big Balls justice other than Scott), but Brian Johnson is as much AC/DC at this point as Angus Young.

    NFL keeps trying to use half time show as a way to draw in non-football audience. paula brings in the american idol crowd they must be thinking, which is large. not that care anyway since i never watched the show anyway

    Maybe she'll bring William Hung.

    She bangs with a cheerleader backup would be the nads.

    That was one of the honorable mentions IMO. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iu4NcgQZucE is another.

    The Bob Fosse imitation was the utterly brilliant one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XN-Qq2umKZo&feature=related

    It's a reference to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WYAaBeAYJlE&feature=related

    Admittedly, I'm biased toward the latter because:

    A. I'm a huge Bob Fosse fan
    B. A gorgeous next-door neighbor of mine appeared topless in it (censored in this clip)

    I thought Tom Petty was going to put us to sleep at half time.
    I actually like the guy, but. . .

    Petty is good, and I thought he was playing at halftime.. Would have been better with Springsteen....

    They've obviously been doing that to draw in the Boomer Generation viewer. They have the disposable income numbers, and ratings numbers with these demographics means everyone comes off happy.

    It's marketing, that's all....
