Did anyone besides me think that Bruce Springsteen looked a bit too exfoliated, hydrated and botoxed? He just didn't look the same to me - way to smooth and polished. I remember him having more of a craggy, real-guy look.

Don't get me wrong though - amazing performance!

I didn't notice his skin, but thought the rendition of born to run, was sub-par.

Of course it was...he had 12 minutes to provide renditions of several songs. There is no way he could have much else....

Did he maybe just have a bunch of makeup on?
I thought Springsteen's performance was pretty darned good--for the Superbowl.
I've seen him live three times, and he always gave his all. He did the best he could with the time slot he was given.
Certainly he was better than snoozefest Tom Petty last year, though Prince is (and always shall be) a hard act to follow.

Well, I think he's put on a little weight, and that will plump up the facial skin, which is not always a bad thing (depends on the person). Didn't look to me like he's had "work done".

I didn't catch the performance - were there any wardrobe malfunctions this time?

I don't check guys out, so I don't know about his skin, but I can tell you that for me the half time show was horrible.....same goes for the last few as well. Ever since the Houston "boob shot" the half time shows are washed up has beens, and a geriatric clinic. Not only borring, but what ever happened to spending some REAL money on entertainers like in the early 00's? Go ahead and have Bruce Springstein come out, but have 10 other A list stars to perform also......

Then again, NFL is deffinately for the older folks, and kiddos anyway so who cares........

Ummmm, first off that would be "Springsteen" and they have 12 minutes, get real. It's a halftime show, not a concert. They need to appeal to a lot of people, and feel that the whole family can watch.....

he's what, 59?

I have about 12 of his CD's but I thought the HT show was pretty bad, and quite frankly, somewhat cheesy with the choir, the Pete Townsend guitar swinging, and the ending.

I didn't think his vocals were all that strong either. Just my honest view.
