    so much effort for so little

    when will the "sorta military herky jerky formation dance thing" be over?

    just play the piano and sing other people's songs

    It's not a musical performance, it's a spectacle. In that regard, it was pretty solid.

    I got a kick out of the drone display.

    She needed to practice the lip-syncing more ahead of time......pretty bad technique.
    The pretending to play the piano thing needs ahead of time work, too.

    No meat dress.....not even a Tele wrapped in a meat dress. Real let down.....

    I thought it was a tight professional entertaining performance.

    Please bring back real bands/artists to the Super Bowl halftime.....no flashy costumes,choreography,fake push-button-sampled music,scantily clad "look-at-me" pop divas.Just honest sweat and bones git-er-done-"we-might-mess-up-but-here-we-are" players and singers.
    I don't care about the style,just quit the dumbing down.

    I'm going to go against the trend here and give a big thumbs-up to Gaga for her performance. It's halftime entertainment and she, unlike just about every artist I've seen over the past years, actually sang throughout. No lip synching, and very solid. She writes her songs, plays piano and can sing her ass off. I dig her. That said it was not in the same stratosphere as Prince, but hey...little is!

    That's kind of what Coldplay did last year and they got roasted for it. I wasn't at all surprised that they went back over the top this year.

    I keep thinking if someone from a 3rd world watched the game, commercials and half time, they would think we were all crazy.

    I liked the Bowie/Starman meets Edgar Winter's Frankenstein garb...she can sing, play, dance & entertain + act. It may not be my thing, but her talent can't be denied

    Not my style, but she's a talented and dynamic performer.

    More an homage to Madonna choreography, Jetsons-stripper costuming, aside from that Gaga is solid and way ahead of her contemporaries as a live performer in the Pop game. I'll also give her credit for not high-school-megaphoning the soapbox. Keytar strikes again!
