I don’t Justin will show. Today is Sunday.

So Reba is the only white person performing all day? Anyone contact the DEI officer?

R2 Come on. Trolling to that degree must be stressful.

by Anonymousreply 4February 11, 2024 9:58 PM

Oh, more reasons to not watch.

American society has fallen so hard. This is considered culture?

by Anonymousreply 6February 11, 2024 10:05 PM

I would have thought it was obvious Lil Jon would be there.

Isn’t Taylor going to perform unexpectedly?

R6 Yes.

How did I travel back to 2005?

R10 I wish we really could. The world was still somewhat held together in 2005. Everything is a mess now.

Justin is back on drugs. The videos of him at the Fanatics party yesterday show him totally wasted.

When is the last time Alicia Keys was relevant?

by Anonymousreply 16February 12, 2024 12:30 AM

No diversity.

by Anonymousreply 17February 12, 2024 12:30 AM

Clearly he chose features based on collaborations. R16 are you slow?

R17 all the openers were white. Why no outrage?

by Anonymousreply 18February 12, 2024 12:32 AM

That's what you get when you put Jay-Z in charge of getting the performers.

by Anonymousreply 19February 12, 2024 12:43 AM

Meanwhile no complaining when it’s been white on white on white.

I liked Alicia’s bit with the red scarf billowing and the piano.

by Anonymousreply 21February 12, 2024 1:37 AM

Keys hasn’t sounded good in years. She really should humble herself and use a backtrack.

Usher looks fiiiiine for 45.

R24 short and all. He does.

by Anonymousreply 25February 12, 2024 1:49 AM

That was actually a fun halftime show. No geriatrics. No political statements. An act who sing and dance with decipherable lyrics. No OTT sets to mask lip syncing.

by Anonymousreply 26February 12, 2024 1:54 AM

R26 I liked it too but I see some are saying it was underwhelming. I think people are used to the huge sets and gimmicks now.

by Anonymousreply 27February 12, 2024 1:57 AM

It’s a shame Bieber chose not to join in.

by Anonymousreply 28February 12, 2024 1:57 AM

Very good and he's still sexyyy

by Anonymousreply 29February 12, 2024 2:00 AM

It was fun and Usher is one of the greats, I fear. At it for decades. They really aren't making professionals like him anymore.

by Anonymousreply 30February 12, 2024 2:07 AM

R28 I told y’all he was not performing or making a guest appearance. It is Sunday. That man is a die hard Christian.

by Anonymousreply 31February 12, 2024 2:29 AM

R31 he is there at the game

Usher is the real deal

by Anonymousreply 33February 12, 2024 2:48 AM

R33 yes but he will not perform worldly stuff on Christ’s day.

Lmao The NFL edited out the crack on Alicia Keys voice for YouTube lmao.

I thought the vocals for the Super Bowl were always pre-recorded. Why was A. Keys singing it live?

by Anonymousreply 36February 12, 2024 11:28 PM

R36 Some national anthem singers because it’s a one take type thing and all those high notes and melisma. Only non singers like Madge and JLo actually lipsing the halftime performance. All the greats like the Queen, Prince, Tom Petty, sing live. It should be noted that the Queen actually sung the national anthem live during the SuperBowl of nipplegate.

They sing to a backing track in case something goes wrong with the sound.

Yes r38. Most of them sing live with a backing track to support their live vocals if anything happens. J Lo and Madge 100% lipsynched but most of them don’t.

Not most, all, if they are dancing.

Usher kind of sang harmony in most of his songs. Which was a choice. Because he is a good singer.

by Anonymousreply 40February 13, 2024 12:47 AM

He also is used to singing while dancing nonstop. He’s been doing it since childhood.

by Anonymousreply 41February 13, 2024 12:51 AM

I have never seen anyone dancing while singing the National Anthem, R40.

by Anonymousreply 42February 13, 2024 1:31 AM

BTW, are non-country men allowed to sing the anthem at major events anymore?

R42 Now there I missed a trick

Even though Whitney gave the best national anthem cover of all time—when people compare her to the Queen, one must remember the Queen was actually singing LIVE.

R39 STFU Janbot. Janet can’t sing to a backing track.

by Anonymousreply 46February 13, 2024 3:48 AM

Did Janet sing the National Anthem?

Nobody is comparing Whitney to Queen Crapyance.
