Pinoy singing sensation Arnel Pineda together with rest of the Journey band performs at the Super Bowl Pre Game on Tampa Bay last February 01, 2008.¬†¬† The Pre Game Show is the official kick-off of the Super Bowl XLIII.¬† The Super Bowl is considered as grand daddy of all American sports, and probably the most watch sports event in the United States.¬†¬†¬† It is watch by over 148 millions U.S viewers and broadcasts worldwide to more than 230 countries territories.
It is important for Arnel Pineda to leave a good impression this show.¬† His performance on the Pre Game show would be his measurement on how he fits on the shoes set by the Journey‚Äôs previous lead vocalist Steve Perry.¬† There are so many talks and speculations whether Pineda is worthy or not of the break, and his performance on the Super Bowl would be his barometer.
Does Arnel failed to give his 100% performance level during the Super Bowl Pre Game show?¬† I have read many comments from critics and fans on several forums and blogs regarding the Arnel‚Äôs performance on Super Bowl.¬† On my rough estimation it is about 70% saying the performance was poorly done while 30% says it was just fine.¬† On the standpoint of a neutral observer I should say Arnel could do better.¬† I would absolutely agree that he failed to rock the Super Bowl Pre Game show.¬† He really sounds stressed out and his voice strained.
I have been watching the guy, following his gigs and TV appearances and there is no doubt on his talent.¬† He could sing, and on my opinion he could even sing better than Steve Perry himself but sad to say he did not exhibit his best during the Super Bowl Pre Game show.¬† Could Arnel Pineda fit the shoes set by Perry?¬† Some of the critics say he could not but on my unbiased point of view he could even exceed Steve Perry‚Äôs benchmark.¬† All he has to do is to focus on his career and stop performing on some ‚Äúpetty‚Äù show and avoid overdoing himself.
