Live blogging the Super Bowl halftime show

Is this one big hot ugly mess, or what?

And OK, maybe I'm just cranky tonight, but did Christina Aguilera totally butcher the National Anthem? Her "dramatic" ending makes me want to poke my eardrums out.


  1. Just don't throw no Pepsi cans.

  2. Did not see it. It's a horrible song anyway.

    I loved the line in 'Angels in America' about it though.

    "The white cracker who wrote the national anthem knew what he was doing. He set the word 'free' to a note so high nobody can reach it. That was deliberate. Nothing on Earth sounds less like freedom to me."

  3. I despise this trend to make the National Anthem some sort of showcase for virtuosos and impromptu. The song is bad enough to sing properly, without adding Baroque trappings. Let's hope her bungle sets the trend for basic renditions from now on.

  4. Was there a football game last Sunday?
