49. it was the best halftime show I've seen in years

I think Springsteen's great.

I love the Black Eyed Peas.

I love the Who.

Madonna was pretty good last year.

But Beyonce's music was better, her sound was better and the dancing and other aspects of the show were just plain higher and better than in recent years.

It was so much better than previous years, it should be watched for comparison's sake.

DVR'd through it. We purposely turned to the game about an hour after it started so we could FF through the commercials and halftime. Got to real time about halfway through the fourth quarter.

Her voice is alright, but I just don't prefer the 'pop' vocalists. I guess that makes me a old turd, but hey I was one from the childhood. I hated 'pop' then too.

and since most of the show was dancing..... i thought it was a bit adult for a national audience.

Although I'm glad to know exactly how you feel about other people.

I think you should rethink your post, and rethink about your ageist views.

Remember, one day you'll be old, too. Are you just going to be - in your words - an "old turd"? Having "Vapors" over any young thing showing skin?

Interesting, in that your avatar has a pic of an "old turd".

38. She doesn't show hardly ANY skin. Really. Well, her arms and a bit of bosom, but no more than

you'd see at the Oscars.

I saw her on some daytime program, and apparently her M.O. is to wear three pairs of "tights" or other stocking-like undergarments that are virtually opaque. So, she's not "showing" anything. She's completely covered, in tight-fitting and shiny clothing.

On that same program, her mother was appearing--she designs her clothing; the idea is to make it appear that she is "showing some skin" but in actual fact, it's all a mirage. No wardrobe malfunctions with that young lady.....

There's a ton of "flesh colored" fabric and clear strapping holding those costumes up...and many of the contestants are "spanx'd" and corseted to beat the band.

The viewers only THINK they're seeing something, but they aren't!

You truly can see more skin if you go to even the senior citizen beach!

She absolutely killed it. KILLED it. Dead. And she knows it. She is a gorgeous and talented woman. I'm no fan but I can freely admit that she killed it with that performance.

No, I wouldn't let my 6 year old watch it, but she killed it. The Beyonce-hate around here is overheated, needless and stupid. It's also a bit suspect in my book.
