1/29/2010 2:49pm EST
The Who
The Who will do the honors of entertaining Super Bowl halftime audiences that don't switch over to the Puppy Bowl this year. The history of the halftime show is a surprising display of ups-and-downs, from mind-blowing performances to corny overproduced ego trips.

Best: Michael Jackson, Super Bowl XXVII

The halftime show was hurting. Two years prior, the New Kids on the Block performance was pre-empted by coverage on Desert Storm and their performance was edited down and shown after the game. Then, FOX swooped in and scooped million of viewers away from the halftime show the next year (mo...

A Conversation With Brent Smith Of Shinedown

Shinedown
It might be weird to think that a band with as much commercial success as Shinedown would even think of breaking up after only two records. Especially when every single released off of those two albums have reached the top five of the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, but you really would be surprised.

Vocalist/band saving grace Brent Smith almost saw everything he had every worked towards taken away from him, all due to some band member departures and certain personal squabbles, but he persevered. Smith worked as hard as ever, enlisted the help of some of his closest musician friends...

Megan Eliminated On 'American Idol' - Thoughts?

So Alexis Grace is in the audience next to Jason Castro. Are they dating? C'mon, I can sing off-key too! Of course, I'll never have that hair.

Just realized that statement could be taken to mean I have a crush on either Jason or Alexis. I'll leave it ambiguous.

It's funny that the audience doesn't even care enough about Kara to boo her when she asks. Maybe they already assume she's been fired.

Here's what gets Paula...
