Lightfoot Lauded/Beiber Booed At Grey Cup



















When it works, having a combination of different artists from different genres performing together can make for a fantastic collide in the music world at live events like the Grey Cup and Super Bowl.

This year, Canada celebrated the 100th Grey Cup (Canadian Football League) in Toronto at the Rogers Centre on Sunday November 25, 2012 with a halftime show mixed bag consisting of performances by Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepsen and Canadian folk icon Gordon Lightfoot.

Justin Bieber faced a hostile homecoming. They booed when his face popped up on the JumboTron. They booed when a host spoke his name at the onset of halftime. And they booed with extra glee as he took the stage and throughout his medley of so-called hits.

The 74-year-old Lightfoot certainly did captivate the crowd Sunday. With the stadium lights down, Lightfoot opened the halftime show by materializing on a modest stage near the 50-yard line, dressed in black and strumming an acoustic guitar. The crowd roared. MORE HERE & HERE
