What the Teen.com Eds Really Thought of the Super Bowl Halftime Show

by: on | in Music | 8 Comments

Everyone has their opinions on last night’s Halftime show featuring Madonna and a bevy of guest stars like Nicki Minaj and LMFAO, and, duh, we are no exception. See what the Teen.com eds thought were the best and worst moments from Madge and friends’ 12 minute set, and here’s the fun part — tell us your thoughts (honesty encouraged!) below…

Kaitlin, Editorial Coordinator:
BEST: The Will Ferrell-looking tightrope dancer legit blew me away. How can anyone move that way on the ground let alone on a thin piece of string??
WORST: It really turned me off when M.I.A. flipped the bird. Does she not remember the Justin Timberlake/Janet Jackson fiasco for inapprops conduct? And that was (supposedly) an accident! I just think M.I.A. was looking for attention.

Haley, Associate Editor:
BEST: The entire stage, in general. I loved the whole set-up, and thought it was such a cool transition to go from those fancy screens to the bleacher-y type things. I can’t even imagine how expensive that thing must’ve been…
WORST: The lip-synching. She’s freakin’ Madonna! Couldn’t she have sang for real? Or at least pretended?

Dan, Deputy Editor
BEST:I know a large part of Madonna’s performance was meant to re-introduce her to a younger audience. And I give her props for that. Madge is 50+ and obviously still very relevant. My favorite part of the performance was that it wasn’t all about her – she was able to share the stage with some of today’s most popular pop acts and let them complement her and she complemented them back.
WORST: I kinda hated Madonna’s outfit…I get that it went with the whole Egyptian theme in the beginning, but the for the rest of the performance – especially when she was with Nicki Minaj & M.I.A. Dear Madonna, have you ever heard of an outfit change?

Alannah, Editorial Intern
BEST: When Madonna shuffled with LMFAO. Sure, she’s a little old-ish but hey, she’s sexy and she knows it.
WORST: All the other people. Although I loved the show, shouldn’t the halftime performer be able to do a show on their own? How come somebody like Madonna couldn’t run the show by herself?

  • laurz

    lol is it me or did they go OTT!?

  • Sam

    she was totally lip-synching the whole time! and she couldn’t even dance and move around.

  • Naomi

    I loved the whole entire thing. At least it was better than last year’s. I could care less for the singing. Madonna isn’t a very strong singer, but she’s a strong performer. I give her props for dancing because the woman is 53 years old and she can still move like that. As for M.I.A., I love her and I don’t care that she gave the middle finger. It doesn’t bother me. People are making a big deal out of it, it’s not that serious. I didn’t like LMFAO joining her on stage. I can’t stand them now. I used to like them, but not anymore. All in all, greatest halftime show I have ever seen.

    Did anyone else notice that madonna almost fell when standing up on the bleachers loll.
