Super Bowl XLV Highlights

Christina Aguilera - National Anthem

The Black-Eyed Peas, Slash, & Usher - Halftime Show

Super Bowl XLV kicked off with Christina Aguilera's powerful rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner". OK, so she flubbed a few words, like no one's ever done that before--& with less pressure, at that, & the last note suffered a bit from it, so what? She kept going, for one, & sang her little heart out! Halftime brought us its first female performer (Fergie) since Janet Jackson in 2004 with The Black-Eyed Peas, who performed "I Gotta Feeling" & "Boom Boom Pow" before being joined by Slash, who played guitar while Fergie sang "Sweet Child O' Mine", originally by his band Guns & Roses. The BEPs then went into "Pump It" & "Let's Get It Started" before Usher joined to perform their collabo "OMG", which was followed by the Peas' "Where Is The Love?" & finally "The Time (Dirty Bit)". The vocals weren't much... but then, when are they ever with the BEPs; however, the flashing lights were enough of a distraction that the show was the best the Super Bowl's seen in years (seven, to be exact!). The highlight for me was Usher, who really killed those moves! Speaking of highlights, check out the Super Bowl commercials for a couple of promising animated movies:
