    Yeah, the blues would have been appropriate for our game at halftime. Hahaha. I can always dig on some blues.

    I was looking for more of a "show" type performance from him. His performance on the VMAs was a better example of the type of "show" performance I was expecting from him. Again, I can understand there were more things in play with the performance that we may not know about (what ESPN allowed for the performance, ect) but I just think it wasn't his best.

    Now if folks didn't like it because the genre of music ... then that's a different story all together lol

    ESPN got a superstar act that would resonate with the college age group and if the reaction of those that were shown in the crowd were any indication then it was a success with the demographic they were targeting.

    The most entertaining music I ever saw at a football game was Josh Groban and Flea doing the National Anthem before Colt was broken. That was so unusual and well done.

    Well, to be fair, there's been less and less correlation between artistry and hits for last few decades. And that's not just opinion, it's fact - today's popular entertainers are less musically trained than ever before.

    yeah, that's a large part of the reason that i don't listen to much popular music.

    I switched to a re-run of a "Cops" episode, where the thugs went to jail.

Personally, I would have put the Foo Fighters or Artic Monkeys out there, but that's just more to my music preferences.

    i just looked up this dude's wikipedia and he has 7 grammys.

    also, this

    Lamar is a Christian,[172] and originally converted following the death of a friend.[173] He has been outspoken about his Christianity, both in his music[174] and interviews.[175] He announced to an audience in the Staples Center during Kanye West's Yeezus Tour that he had been baptized in 2013.[176][175][177] Lamar has credited God for his fame and his deliverance from crime that often plagued Compton in the 1990s.[178] Lamar also believes his career is divinely inspired and that he has a greater purpose to serve mankind, saying in an interview with Complex, "I got a greater purpose, God put something in my heart to get across and that's what I'm going to focus on, using my voice as an instrument and doing what needs to be done."[179]

    Wasn't my style but to each his own.

    For me, nothing will ever top Prince's SB halftime show a few years ago. Best ever IMHO. What a musician, died way too young.

    Me either but I'm a huge Prince fan and watched that one live start to finish. I got to see him in concert once about 20 years ago - dude was a force of nature.
