Superbowl Halftime Shows
« on: February 10, 2021, 05:12:14 am »
Even before this most recent one, which left me wholly unimpressed... Am I the only one who wishes that the Superbowl would go back to its roots and bring back halftime performances from groups like the Grambling State University Marching Band? Or maybe bring in a dci drum corps champion.


Why do we need major (or in some cases minor) recording artists singing truncated versions of their overhyped songs in an effort to squeeze a full rock concert into a 20 minute window?
 ::)


Football halftime shows are made for marching bands, who IMO have much more talent, style, class, and entertainment value than almost any of these high profile acts that the Superbowl has been cranking out over the past few decades. It really is a shame that everything has to be commercialized and sensationalized.

I missed the half time show as well as the game; but in the pass when I have watched there were some good half time performers at times.

I enjoy the half-time shows, probably because we spent time together watching it as a family and my son was a bit unfamiliar with the artists.

It might be nice to have a change in the halftime show.  I didn't watch halftime this year but most of the reviews that I have read they were disappointed in the Weekends performance. I read he spent 7 million of his own money to put on that show.  :o

College half time shows should be televised. The bands work so hard and so enjoyable to watch
