Super Bowl Half-time Show Special

There will be surprise performances of Usher and Slash (Gun’s and Roses) joining the Black Eyed Peas on stage for the half-time show for Super Bowl XLV. The game will see the Green Bay Packers square off against the Pittsburgh Steelers at 6:30pm ET Sunday.

According to AOL, Will-I-Am of the Black Eyed Peas says that he will be rocking a “next level” outfit, and a 5-minute pilot for their new anime will be released after the Super Bowl on AOL.

Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie promised Thursday that there would be no repeat of Janet Jackson’s infamous “wardrobe malfunction” when the band plays at Super Bowl XLV in Arlington, Tex.

Usher and Slash are heading to the Super Bowl:

A person familiar with the plans for Sunday’s halftime show told The Associated Press that R&B star Usher and former Guns ‘N Roses guitarist Slash are slated to make surprise appearances.

The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity Wednesday, because the musicians’ performances were not going to be announced.

Usher and Slash are supposed to join the Black Eyed Peas, who are the main halftime act for Sunday’s NFL championship game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers at Cowboys Stadium.

Black Eyed Peas member will.i.am is featured on Usher’s hit single “O.M.G.”

Slash has performed Guns ‘N Roses song “Sweet Child o’ Mine” on tour with the Black Eyed Peas; he also collaborated with Black Eyed Peas member Fergie on the song “Beautiful Dangerous” last year.

Fergie promises no wardrobe malfunctions:

Fergie will be the first woman featured during the halftime show since Jackson’s flesh was exposed during a controversial incident that made global headlines in 2004, USA Today reported.

“It is a challenge because you want to give a little sex appeal,” Fergie said.

“But, you know, you don’t want to get into any trouble. So we’re very particular on the wardrobe. There will be no more malfunctions, and I think Janet’s amazing. She’s a great performer.”

Fergie, a minority partner in the Miami Dolphins, will be joined on stage at Cowboys Stadium by bandmates will.i.am, apl.de.ap and Taboo, and they have promised to heat up the crowd in what are expected to be freezing conditions Sunday.

“We always brings the heat,” Taboo said. “Hopefully, we bring the heat because it’s cold … in Dallas.”

Taboo said he once dreamed of playing professional football.

“I remember as a kid watching the halftime shows, watching Super Bowls. My uncle [Lynn Cain] used to play football for the Atlanta Falcons.”

“I wanted to play football until I got a concussion, and then I didn’t want to play football anymore,” he added. “Now, representing my family, being part of the Super Bowl, it’s a wonderful thing.”
