Black Eyed Peas to Perform at Super Bowl

| November 26, 2010 - 6:50 am

There’s going to be a bit of pop culture injected into the Super Bowl Halftime Show for the first time in years, as the Black Eyed Peas will be the main performers during the big game.

It was announced on Thursday during the Dallas Cowboys vs. New Orleans Saints game that Fergie, Will.i.Am and the rest of the BEP crew will rock the house on February 6 in Dallas. There’s no word on what songs the Peas will perform, but it’s easy to assume that ‘I Gotta Feeling’ will be in the mix.

The addition of BEP to the Super Bowl bucks the recent trend of featuring safer and older performers following the fallout of Janet Jackson’s infamous “wardrobe malfunction” during 2004’s Super Bowl. Looking to go the safer route, the Super Bowl has mostly settled for tamer artists of late. The last three performances, in reverse chronological order, have been: The Who, Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty.

Something tells us that given the atmosphere, ‘My Humps’ might not make the cut.
