it surprised me to read that the Beyonce halftime show actually lost viewers compared to the game as a whole
"killing a man should take long enough for one's conscience to get in the way."
Do we really think they will invite three pop girls back to back?
I am guessing: Coldplay, Someone from Jersey like Jovi, or Springsteen, Eminem.
God love Rihanna but her ability to put together an upbeat performance on that level is not something I am seeing. She's good at performing an uptempo on an X factor then quickly hopping off stage. However I don't see her doing it on a grand scale back to back.
Has anyone seen her in concert? Has she strung together massive routines in single sets? For christ sakes Beyonce was moving like crazy and people still were not here for the dancing. Will Rihanna even match half of what beyonce brought?
At the end of the day Madonna and Beyonce brought in the numbers. A band like Linkin Park (Who have sold more records than people have imagined) or Coldplay may not bring in the same numbers but they can bring in a show.
Imagine Linkin Park playing their old hits like Faint, Breaking the Habit or Numb. Dear God.
The effects are still showing.

Only 4 of the 47 Super Bowls have been held in places that are normally very cold in the winter. All other Super Bowls have been held in sunbelt or southern states (California, Arizona, Texas, Louisiana, Georgia or Florida).
As long as it's not Nickelback or Hinder.
^ why do people hate nickleback?
^because the lead screams into my ears. I don't appreciate screaming.
^ because they whine instead of sing
She pulled in about 104 million viewers to her show. Madonna pulled in a record 112.5 million.
Beyonce should have premiered something new given the audience she had.
There are rumors that Britney has been picked for next year.
As her biggest fan... I think it's a terrible idea. She's not there yet.
^Wasn't Britney supposed to be closing in on a Vegas residency deal?
Was she singing the sacred national anthem in those clothes? It seems kind of inappropriate?
Britney has done half time already, albeit as part of an emsemble act. I don't think they will call upon her a second time.
I do think they might stick with pop acts though. The guys who are going to tune in for Springsteen are likely watching the game anyway... but a lot of people who don't watch football might tune in for Madonna or Beyonce. It's a creative way of increasing your audience.
I don't see how a small part in a performance years ago would rule her out at this point.
It would rather be her downfall as a performer (her two tours since the breakdown were both mehhhh).
But she would get a lot of rating because people would be curious to see whether she does good or if it's gonna be another VMA 2007.
Next year could also see Lady GaGa, Rihanna, or Katy Perry performing at the half time just because they're all current and each have a string of uptempo hits under their belt.
