All-star extravaganza

Next week's Super Bowl has Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

The NHL all-star game? "R&B singer/songwriter and five-time Grammy nominee Ne-Yo is among the musical artists slated to perform ... Other performers include rock band The Hives, Canadian singer/songwriter Kathleen Edwards, the Atlanta Boy Choir and the Halftime Live marching band."

P.S. watch it on Versus.

Although I doubt I'll watch it, I'd rather NeYo and The Hives over Tom Petty.

Superbowl is going to go with the lillywhite, zero chance at controversy, older bands forever just because of a half second nipple slip.

I've had the Hives. Better than Scarlet Fever but worse than The Mumps.

I'm sorry, did you say the "Atlanta Boys Choir"? Hopefully there is no "wardrobe malfunctions".

Time to cancel it forever. Players don't want to go, hockey fans don't want to watch it, bands don't want to play in it.....

How bad is the NHL going to let it get?

Cancel it, still name players as All-Stars send them a plaque and give them the same break, or more over X-mas, but please just put this dying pony out of its misery.

I bet you only 3 NHL fans know who Ne-Yo is.. what an odd choice. Maybe it's what Bettman plays in the limo.

I'm surprised they didn't get Lil Jon, since he's from Atlanta and is a hockey fan.

Odder than Meat Loaf at the NBA All Star Game? Because that happened a couple of years ago.

I have no clue who Ne-Yo is, but it could be that I'm out of touch given I title my posts after Metallica albums.

I'm actually impressed they managed to get The Hives, that's actually a pretty big draw if you ask me.

Dfsdao: Tom Petty is going to rock the Halftime show very hard. He may be 57 but he knows how to put on a good show.

It is completely ludicrous that you would even suggest that you'd rather see Ne Yo than Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers.

Hardly ludicrous. It's called an opinion. Really, neither Ne-Yo or Tom Petty are going to get any viewing time from me. But Petty is "before my time", so yeah, would rather listen to The Hives/Ne-Yo combination.

I'm down with Tom Petty too, although I'm a big Hives fan as well.
