Just moments ago at the 45th annual edition of the Super Bowl, Usher and former Guns ‘N Roses guitarist Slash made surprise appearances at the Super Bowl half time show, along with the Black Eyed Peas. This has been rumored all week as a spokesman close to the Associated Press anonymously first broke the news on Wednesday.
Usher and Slash joined regularly-scheduled Black Eyed Peas, who were the main halftime act for tonight’s NFL championship game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers at Cowboys Stadium. For those of you who don’t know, Black Eyed Peas member will.i.am is featured on Usher’s hit single “O.M.G.”, who sang the song tonight.
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. The NFL announced in November that the Black Eyed Peas would be the featured Super Bowl halftime performer. Past halftime acts have included U2, the Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Paul McCartney and Prince.
