I'm gunna have to buck the trend here....I thought that was the lamest halftime performance I've seen in a long time.
He started off tapping Queen WWRY, which aggravates me most of the time anyway. Then, he only did TWO songs that were his own. I mean, come on! This guy has a catalogue that has MORE than enough stuff in it to have him have performed his own stuff. Had to play some CCR apparantly, which would have made more sense had the show been somewhere other than Florida in the middle of a downpour. He never looked like he was having a decent time playing the show, even at the end he looked pissed. And those two girls who were doing the "choreography"? Don't even get me started. That wasn't choreography, and whoever was hired to teach them that should be shot...it was a lot of "swing your head around and make your hair fly in the wind"...not dancing at all.
The only decent part was the marching band they had on the sides with the reflective tape on their uniforms. Having been in marching band before, I know it take talent to play an instrument with good quality and breath control and dance at the same time.
Before the hate mail arrives, I am NOT dissing Prince. I like a lot of his stuff. I just think the show could have been MUCH better to do him more justice.

Wow! I just watched it. (I went to bed before half-time last night - was so tired - I think a cold might be coming on). Anyway I TIVOed it, so...

I thought it was great. I appreciated the WWRY lead in. That must have made Brian feel proud. A very good charged-up rock performance by Prince, with great guitar work and a good tribute to Hendrix as well. Glad he got in Purple Rain with all that rain. Couldn't have asked for a better situation for the drama of it all! As for the dancers, I do think they tend to take away from Prince a bit sometimes, but it is kind of his signature style. Did he use them in the old days? I can't remember. Great that nobody fell down on that wet stage. I think it was one of the better half time shows. Prince has really held up well over the years (and I am referring to his music). He is still Prince.

I enjoyed the performance immensely. Donna13 pretty much summed it up for me.

No he didn't. The dancers came around the Sign O' the Times era. In his "old days" it was him on stage in a trench coat and briefs with his band.

Ok, here goes:

1. If U2, McCartney, Britney & Aerosmith were better halftime shows, then count me out. This was the best halftime show I have ever seen, period. I've seen quite a few. In fact, with the sloppy play and the lame commercials, I think PRINCE stole the Superbowl.

2. If you'd seen Prince's press conference, you'd get why he started tapping WWRY. Expect one thing, cause you're not getting that!!

3. Proud Mary was an Ike Turner song, CCR covered it to. Did CCR have the right to cover it when they did?

4. Try playing a guitar in the rain and humidity and look happy. You can't. By the time you smile, the damn thing has gone outta tune again, so he's too busy "tuning on the fly".

5. Those two girls (they were identical twins, by the way) were not for you CMU, they were for me and the rest of the guys. We don't care if they're choreographed or not. They looked good!

'Proud Mary' was written by John Fogerty and recorded by CCR, then was covered by Tina Turner.

I stopped watching the superbowl very early on in the game, because i just didn't understand american football. english rugby and football yes, american football not a clue. I wasn't going to stick around just to see prince either.
I sound like i am moaning, i don't mean to, i jsut don't understand the rules is all.


I'm not a river or a giant bird, that soars to the sea, an if i'm never tied to anything i'll never be free!
