Agreed!

The NFL really screwed up with that show.

Just terrible. Absolutely terrible.

Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton performed "America the Beautiful" before The National Anthem.

Am I the only one who listened to that on a 5.1 setup? The surrounds had the stadium mics in them so they picked up the entire performance about a quarter second behind, giving everything a nasty echo. Just ****ing awful job on the mix.

Remember that Wendel (SNF Mixer) had no part in the half time show performance audio mixing.

The only vocals in the four proper songs (Vogue, Music, Give Me All Your Lovin', Like A Prayer) that sounded live to me were the verses and chorus of Vogue and all of Like A Prayer.

I thought the sound mix was great on calibrated 5.1 system, but I might have a few Sammys in me ;-)

As I stated earlier I couldn't stand the overly bassy mix so I went back to stereo early in the show, ya I didn't like the surrounds either.

Maybe it was recorded before the game.

When do you suppose they cleared the field for 30 minutes prior to the game when it was daylight outside with those big giant windows?
C'mon...think before you eat your hat

How could they have set that up, pulled it off so "perfectly", and gotten it all off the field during the real halftime?

I guess we'll know for sure when some of the people who were actually there start relating their experience.

They do it year after year. They rehearse it.

Really great stage managers and collapsable mobile custom gear. Remember this is really difficult and many shows have problems like last year and the Prince show (which the rain played hell with but came out ok on television). But these fast changeovers are really common on award shows sometimes only a commercial break worth of time.

Yeah, but as far as I can recall, I've always been able to tell that it was clearly being done live.

I can't help but doubt, with Madonna's history of needing her big television performances to appear flawless on stage.

So, if you can't tell, that means it's not?

Not a fan of her music, and she is a "has been", but glad they didn't have some redneck patriotic country "hat" act.

I think the blur shot during halftime might have been the profanity delay. That is an option on some delays such as the one made by Evertz. There was what may have sounded like the S word just ahead of it, and the censor may have hit the wrong button late and affected the video instead of the audio. The half time show can and usually is delayed, but the game itself has to be live according to NFL rules.

The infamous Janet Jackson incident did have a delay, but no provision was made to block the video, just the audio.

I did change the "eat my hat' statement to "maybe" in my second to last post. When somebody can prove to me that it all in true real time, I won't have any trouble believing it.

I thought it was one of the better ones in a long while. I really enjoyed it. The stage was amazing.

Madonna's lips not even being close to the music should be enough proof..that and she never seemed even close to being out of breath
despite the exertion..

Well, I was sitting in the world feed ESU truck watching the halftime feed out of Denali "California" punching thru the NBC wide cameras while listening to the halftime AD count down. They set the whole thing in under seven minutes.

When you work the Super Bowl, only the A-crew is allowed to play.

And to the previous poster further up who slammed the SNF crew; during the halftime show they were all lining up for the porta-johns and grabbing something to drink. The SNF crew has nothing to do with the halftime show.

I just don't get 24p... I thought it was very distracting and looked "weird" for the lack of a proper technical term.

I doubt anyone thinks she was singing live.

It was obvious. In fact it really looked stupid. She should have just ran around rather than making believe she was also singing.

Just a pitiful show.

If I produced the show i'd make it a rule that either you sing live or you don't perform no if's and's or buts.

I don't think anyone needs to prove anything to you. You just need an education on television production.

If you didn't have the surrounds on (as I listened to it) you heard a clean studio mix. No crowd leakage. Nice studio echo devices and a very good mix.
If you watched the show and observed her mic technique she gave away that she was lip syncing. No drop off of level as she moved the mic away and no change of the frequency content.
It was a nice, safe and technically amazing live production. They do it every year. All of the staging is staged under the stands up the tunnels in an exact order so that it comes out and falls into place. It is all rehearsed and timed to make sure that it goes without a hitch.

Did anybody not see MIA flip off the camera during the progression of the show? Nipplegate 2012! CBS had to contend with the FCC, now it's NBC's turn.
