Black Eyed Peas score Super Bowl performance
The NFL has scored a touchdown with their selection for this year's Super Bowl halftime entertainment: the Black Eyed Peas!
"They could have picked anybody," band member will.i.am tells Rolling Stone of the NFL's decision. "But it says something that they picked us."
The Black Eyed Peas are releasing a new album, "The Beginning," on Tuesday, November 30. Fans who buy the CD could have a chance to see the group's February 6 live performance at the Super Bowl XLV halftime show at Cowboys Stadium in North Texas.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Super Bowl gig is considered a coup for entertainers because it reaches an enormous audience. Last year, more than 153 million people tuned in to see The Who's halftime show.

I wonder if Fergie will have a wardrobe malfunction, I wouldn't mind seeing that if you know what I mean...
Not looking forward to it...many other artists I would rather see.
All the heaters I'll u a blackeye Peas-unch
BEP is a great band. They are good people at heart. The Who and Aerosmith were great bands 150 years ago and now they are cadavers and move and sound like then
The BEST halftime ever was U2 after 911 – please if u havent seen it then chexk it on youtube. Best tribute ever. Will bring tears ti your eyes.
Peace to you all.
I luv d b.e.p, they r gud on stage
Haters listen it is about the game your right but enjoy halftime be happy there is 1 i love the B.E.P so start being haters when u got millions but 4 now shut up enjoy halftime ima be ima be treating u haters all day its sad how u guys just got told by a kid go chicogo bears and think before u comment or i will treat u again
Haters u guys suck yes it is about the game but u should enjoy half time its fun if u dont like the b.e.p the dont comment plain and simple oh ya and ima be ima be treating u ppl all the time if u guys got millions then u can hating but fo now shut your mouth ha just go told by a 13 yr old
bep is a good group but not all their songs are hot but you can dance to them all if you have too
It's not the black eyed peas who suck live, it's Fergie. She's awful live. Great songs though.
Rock That Body is the only song that they've made thus far that I can actually say that I enjoy, but I only like the beat.. I think I should be thanking David Guetta and Rob Base for that, though. Regardless, it'll still be the only relevant and interesting performance in years.. The Who? Bruce Springsteen? Just die already, or at least update your styles. Doesn't matter what new songs they make, they still sound old..
I would absolutely wreck Fergie and she would love every minute of it.
Please bep at least finish rthere shows unlike a bunck of drunk kings of leon that blame it on pigeon shi
t get real people bep will be the best performance in a while
Prince's was a sweet half time show
Ummm....4 those haters who hate the BEP'S.....make sure you wrote the words you want to say on here.You guys must watch a lot of football and dont care 'bout anythin.Idc but you guys could actually listen to music,talk with friends,actually do something 4 a change.I love the BEP'S!!!!!!!(expectually Karma!!!!!!)*fav song!!!!!*
Your just an idiot! Nice grammar. Just because people don't like b e p doesn't mean thru don't have lives. I hope your cooking something for your boy friend during the game that way A. Hedoesnt have to listen/look at you. And B you miss watching these losers perform there crappy auto-tuned music!
Thats got to be the worst band on the planet. They sound like and look like they are lip sinking and Their songs have Long been worE out. I guess I Will crank up some STones or Kings of LEON!
Uhhh they aren't a band...they don't play instruments
Prince rocked it. Michael Jackson rocked. Janet Jackson totally rocked it!! The Who didn't so much rock it. I believe the BEP will deliver an electro soul shake down.
Nothing beat Prince's half time show a few years ago. That man rocked it in the rain!
BY FAR ONE OF THE WORST LIVE SOUNDING PERFORMANCES IVE EVER HEARD , THEY'RE LUCKY THERE ARE MACHINES THAT MAKE THEM SOUND GOOD ON DISC.
I love hearing BEP on the radio but i agree that they are TERRIBLE live! They cannot sing without autotune.
Fergie is hot!
The Who last year disappointed. It was like one long CSI commercial. I don't have strong feelings fo the Black Eyed Peas but they'll probably give a really good energetic show.
153mm people watching The Who doesn't translate into similar numbers for the BEP.
This was a veryyyy poorr choice for a half time show. Verry disappointed.
They are ok.
this is weak.
Not excited at all about this 🙁 it'll be the same techno songs they've been performing for the last 2-3 years. ALL of their songs have the same beat & sound it's boring. & last years half time was pretty damn good. It's not about halftime it's about the GAME.
Agreed there garbage. Aerosmith a few years ago rocked and so have a lot of the other halftime shows.
filipino go blackeye peas love you music
I wonder if Fergie will have a wardrobe malfunction, wouldnt mind seeing that if you know what I mean...
Excelent, BEP for Super bolw, last year HT performance dissaponted!
Sounds like a half time snoozer. We all know they will perform the same 2 songs they have been doing for years. Zzzzzz
i hope fergie wears her high heels on stage...mmmmmmm
A good reason to miss the halftime show.
hah...black eyed peas suck. its not about the halftime show...its about the damn game. :p
I LOVE THE B.E.P!!!
Im glad they have somebody interesting this year
Black eyed peas .. gone shut it dwn in Texas.. I want tickets.. dat was a great pic for the defendn champs N.O.Saints to Win 2..!!
Yayyyyyy! I love them!
Last years super bowl halftime show was actually very good.
Not really...a bunch if has beens. Who?
Yes...after X number of years of boring halftime performers, a Superbowl halftime show worth watching.
the Sound System was Groovy & kool!
I love Sound System.
The sound system was a Groovey band.
I love Black eyed peas
Black Eyed Peas rock.
Say, Eddie King really likes "Black Eyed Peas score Super Bowl performance".
Black Eyed Peas rule!!
I GOT A FEELING THAT SUPERBOWL NIGHTS GONNA BE A GOOD NIGHT
Your a loser
