Black Eyed Peas Super Bowl XLV
It is official - The Black Eyed Peas Super Bowl XLV half time show headliners are confirmed!!
Already back in September 2010 there were unconfirmed reports / rumors going around, that the Black Eyed Peas were going to play the half time show. But as of November 26, 2010 they are officially confirmed. Both, by the band as well as the NFL.
The Black Eyed Peas have been a part of other football shows in the past. They took part in the 2005 Super Bowl pregame show titled, “Bridging Generations” and performed at the NFL Kickoff Concert in Pittsburgh in 2009.
The hip-pop act will be the first representation of pop music since the Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake “wardrobe malfunction” in 2004. In years since the incident, the planners and bookers for the half time show selected more seasoned acts such as Paul McCartney, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, Prince and the Who.
David Hill, Fox Sports president, vowed that the musical entertainment would get younger once the Super Bowl moved back to his network in 2011.
