It was painful. I was napping and happened to have the tv on and couldn't believe what I was hearing. I thought I was dreaming.
That was just awful.

Billy Joel aside, I thought Prince rocked the house.

So glad I missed it. And so glad I saw Prince, couldn't believe some of his playing, although I could do without the foo fighters cover.

let me get this straight.....

its 2007. billy joel and prince are playing the superbowl halftime show. one of them ruined his performance with.....what exactly? was the antares set to the wrong key or something or was he completely unable to hear his own piano/wasted?

and prince covered a song the drummer from nirvana wrote?
