The Packers triumphed to become Super Bowl champs, and the Black Eyed Peas avoided wardrobe malfunctions. Check our picks for the five top takeaways from the game.
1. It's a Competition, People: Steeler vs. Packers? As much as that was the big matchup of the day, we also kept a sharp eye on the pre-game showdowns. Christina Aguilera's rendition of the national anthem didn't exactly go off without a hitch, but the other big story may have been the bling Lea Michele had on her finger while belting out "America the Beautiful." And lest you wonder how she felt about her performance, the Glee star was quick to tweet her excitement: "OMG THAT WAS AN OUT OF BODY EXPERIENCE!!!!! SO AMAZING!!! WHAT AN HONOR AND JOY!!!!"
2. It's a Star-Studded Event: Stars love cameras the big game, so the Jumbotron was working overtime to catch Cameron Diaz hand-feeding Alex Rodriguez popcorn as they snuggled in the stands, not to mention a host of bigwigs including former President George Bush and wife Laura. As well, fellow famous people on hand included husband and wife Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas, along with Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston, Brooklyn Decker, John Travolta, Hugh Jackman, Owen Wilson and Jamie Foxx also in attendance.
3. It's a Halftime Extravaganza: Following years of humdrum post-Nipplegate halftime shows, Black Eyed Peas brought pop back to the Superbowl. The Peas popped out in futuristic leather garb, jamming to "I Gotta Feeling," "Boom Boom Pow" and "Pump It." Meanwhile, Fergie, decked out in two million dollars worth of bling, rocked out with Slash to Guns N' Roses' "Sweet Child O' Mine." Before the show was over, Usher popped and locked his way through "OMG" with a team of dancers.
4. It's Got Ads: We told you about some of the best, but we'd all been waiting to see who the GoDaddy team would choose to be their hot new spokeswoman. So who was it? Jillian Michaels and Danica Patrick announced the news that it was none other than E!'s own Fashion Police host Joan Rivers, who showed off a hot bod...of someone's!
5. It's One of the Best: Regardless of which team you were rooting for, we can all agree that this was a great game. While the Packers rocked the Steelers at the start, the Steelers soon regained their footing and fought there way to within just six points by halftime. While it was a fight to the finish, fans sporting cheese heads rejoiced as the Packers took home the victory, defeating the Steelers 31-25.
