Rap group Black Eyed Peas have been confirmed as this year’s halftime entertainment for Super Bowl XLV, in an attempt to update the halftime game’s image.

The Peas’ performance on February 6th at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, Texas, is the first time an urban/Hip-Hop group has played during the Super Bowl’s halftime show since 2004.

While rap artists like Nelly, Kid Rock and Diddy performed, scandal erupted when R&B singers Justin Timberlake ripped Janet Jackson’s shirt open and exposed her bare breast, causing what was later dubbed “nipple gate.”

The stunt caused nationwide outrage and in the ensuing aftermath, CBS was fined $500,000.
