Black Eyed Peas Super Bowl Halftime Show Disappoints As America Gives It Two Thumbs Down

The Black Eyed Peas Super Bowl halftime show was panned by the majority of the viewing public, as evidenced by the less than glowing real-time Twitter reviews and polls immediately following the show. Take, for instance, this ESPN poll, in which the wide majority of viewers gave the Black Eyed Peas a solid "F" for a show that left many longing for Bruce Springsteen again.

Want to watch the show again? Too bad, I'm not subjecting you to a second viewing. However, SB Nation's Spencer Hall did find the show in a handy 20 second format, giving you a chance to relive the highlights, which were few and far between.

Whew! Much better. 

As we found out later, the Black Eyed Peas weren't even paid for the show, as is customary with Super Bowl hafltime shows. Instead, the show is used as a platform in an effort to boost record sales and gain exposure. But did the Black Eyed Peas gain the right exposure? After all, any publicity is good publicity, right?

In this case, it might've done more harm than good. At least the glowing people looked cool, though.
