The CFL announced today that the halftime show this year will be the Imagine Dragons.
A real coup for the CFL in my opinion to land one of the hottest rock bands on the planet. Imagine Dragons are Billboards top ranked rock performers in 2013 and they named them Breakout Band of the Year. They won the Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance, the American Music Award for Favourite Alternative band, 5 other Billboard Awards and a World Music Award winner.
They had a huge hit with Radioactive - a song you would often even hear on CFL telecasts on TSN. It was a huge hit for them but personally I prefer two of their other big hits 'It's Time' and 'Demons'.
If you are drawing a blank on their name check out these videos and then I'm pretty sure almost all of you will clue in as to who they are. If nt - let me be the first to welcome you to 2014.
Radioactive - their biggest hit - over 230 million views of this video on youtube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktvTqknDobU
It's Time - my personal favourite so far of their songs - meaningful lyrics to me - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sENM2wA_FTg
Demons - growing on me the more I hear it - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mWRsgZuwf_8
Great choice IMO as their music is both current and appeals to a broad demographic at the same time.
