  Chips high to the ceiling, dips of every kind, mountains of goodies on the table and the volume turned up on the sound system…I’m ready for the big game. The Super Bowl this year was a big game, a rivalry between the Patriots and Eagles. Not only was I excited to watch the game, I was also excited to see the halftime performance by Justin Timberlake.

  Usually when my family watches the Super Bowl game, I’m not really excited to watch the actual game, but the commercials and halftime show. (This year I watched the game too). The first half of the game was finishing and making everyone excited for the halftime. As I was anticipating the halftime show, I grabbed more goodies and waited for it to start.

  At the beginning of the performance, I was a little bored when Timberlake made his great debut into the stadium. I didn’t really think that it was a creative way to come in. When I watched it, I couldn’t help comparing it to Lady Gaga’s entrance last year. But, I continued watching hopeful, waiting for something exciting to happen.

  His song choice in this performance was okay.  My favorite song he sang was Can’t Stop the Feeling. Many people were excited to hear his new songs from the album he released before the Super Bowl. But, in the performance, he sang older songs and even songs from his boy band days. Don’t get me wrong, I like some of his music, but the song choices were not my favorite.

  The part where he made tribute to Prince was, for me, a little out of place. It seemed a little awkward when he sang a duet with him through a hologram. I didn’t really like how he did it that way. The cool thing about this part was when they showed the outside of the stadium when they outlined Prince’s guitar.

  Overall, this was my least favorite halftime performance. His entrance was not the greatest, his music was older and his outfit didn’t tie in with his performance at all. Many years from now, when I think back on the halftimes shows, this is one that won’t come to mind because the lack of awe and creativity. I would rate this a one out of five stars.
