Atlanta's Usher will contribue a surprise performance to [SPOILER ALERT] the Super Bowl XLV halftime show, scheduled to feature the Black Eyed Peas, according to an AP report. Slash of Guns 'N Roses fame is also reportedly set to walk around and play a crammed-in guitar solo for money, as he remains to this day the only guitar player besides Carlos Santana that any currently popular musician has ever heard of.

Congratulations, Atlanta, you're now partially responsible for the most OK part of what's expected to be among the most embarrassing Super Bowl halftime shows ever.

Usher features one of the various Peas as a guest on his hit "OMG," an otherwise all right song that I assume will be performed. The North Springs High alum may also join in on a special and timely Super Bowl version of "Where Is The Love," updated to include a line about how Mike Tomlin could fix Egypt if we'd let him, but that's just pure and wild speculation on my part.

The good news is we're one step closer to Lil Jon performing the national anthem.
