2011 Super Bowl Halftime Show: Black Eyed Peas, And Special Guests, Perform Best Halftime Show In Years

We may have ruined the surprise early, but that doesn't mean it was any less awesome.

The Black Eyed Peas, with their special guests Slash and Usher, gave Super Bowl audiences the best halftime show in years.

I have never been a big fan of The Black Eyed Peas, but there is no denying that they tore Jerry Jones' billion dollar palace to the ground with their theatrics and music.

The started off with a bang, coming out in space age costumes, predictably, singing their hit, I've got a feeling. Over the course of the next ten minutes they performed most all of their hits.

The stage was fantastically designed. It was lit to make it look like any shape they wanted. It was surrounded by white jumpsuit clad dancers amidst a sea of strobe lights.

The highlight for me personally was when guitar legend, and former Guns and Roses guitarist, slash rose from the ground to give the famous guitar riff that kicked off a performance of sweet child of mine.

Usher also came in to join the madness performing his hit "OMG" with the help of the Black Eyed Peas.

Very fittingly, the group concluded with an encore of "I've got a feeling". I think we all hope that, no matter who wins, tonight will be a good night as we have a very close, competitive game.
