Super Bowl: The biggest stage in sports and entertainment

Where would you say is the biggest, baddest stage for an artist to perform?

Not the MTV Music Awards. Not the ACM, CMA or People’s Choice Awards. And definitely not the Grammys.

Nope. The most coveted is on a football field during the biggest sporting event of the year, which Madonna called the “sacred show of America” on Jay Leno on Monday night.

“It’s the Super Bowl!”

Ah, the Super Bowl. The all-in-one variety show featuring singers, musicians, movie stars and, of course, athletes (though I, um, had to read fellow DN writer Jamshid Ghazi Askar’s “Four things you need to know about Sunday’s broadcast” to recall who’s playing who. And P.S. , for those of you who are so not up-to-date on important events such as this, it’s the New York Giants and New England Patriots. You’re welcome.)

Back to my point:

It’s a something-for-everyone kind of show packed with great/old/sometimes scandalous entertainment. It’s a you-never-know-what-could-happen-next type of excitement complete with stars forgetting lyrics (sorry, Christina), “accidently” losing clothing (yeah right, Janet) and, of course, the $2 or $3 million commercials. I mostly just like the excuse to plant a whole bowl of chips and queso in my lap and not even feel sorry for it.

Will you be watching Super Bowl XLVI? What do you look forward to most about this event?
