I have a question for anyone that knows the answer...

The half hour pre-show, that started at 1700 CT, and the upcoming Lady Gaga halftime show had/will have the shots called by Fox or by the NFL?

Someone can correct me, but IIRC, the pregame and halftime show is still a Fox production, but it's a different truck and a different director/technical crew. No doubt heavily scripted and adjusted from rehearsals. I see where NFL Network hung their name on it.

I think she just outdid Prince and Michael Jackson, IMHO. That was incredible. I'm biased, though. I think she's among a few talented AND brilliant performers.

Taylor Kinney is the second-luckiest guy in the world.

Disagree, but I think she's very talented. She doesn't have the hits to get my blood flowing though.

I don't really like her songs but I do appreciate the artist, especially when she duets with Tony Bennett. I wish whey would have brought him for a song!

Still a great performance and a very good production!

I went back and replayed the performance. I'm impressed with the production. There must have been a lot of practice in order to get the surrounding crowd in the right place so that the lights would create the patterns they wanted. The planning that must have gone into doing that is amazing.

Love her songs. She has had a lot of hits.

UPDATE: I had to check on something. Taylor is not so lucky anymore, since they broke up a while ago.

I don't wish and every married man alive knows not to refer to any other guy as "the luckiest guy in the world" due to whom he married.

Not if he wants to sleep alone after the game.

No, you aren't. I enjoy them as well. It all depends on the artist/group. I did not watch last year's performer.

2014 was ridiculous. Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers? I bet 80% of the audience had no idea who those guys were.

I'm not the biggest Lady GaGa fan but I thought the show was well done. She is very talented and was well backed by her fellow stage performers and stage producers. Also, the shout out to her parents was nice.

I was totally impressed with GaGa! I actually went back and re watched it. The drones were great too, had no idea what was going on at first. As to the comments about dinosaur rock, I'd have ZERO interest in watching that and would not have even bothered to tune in. I choose not to live in the past, too much good stuff now.

Loved Gaga!! Being an old broad who's with the times, I'm glad they got someone relevant. The classic-rock folks were good back in the day but for something big like the SB you need to bring in acts that are more modern.

This was the best half time show I can remember ever seeing. Her vocals were awesome (love that she sang live and not lip sync). Performance was awesome. Loved the drones. Everything was excellent and I don't recall any hiccups. Well done!
