I went to games as a kid. I got into hockey by playing the game as a youngster, watching it on tv and going to games. The WHA Oiler games were NOT marketed towards kids. People go to the games to watch the game, not to catch t shirts between plays or win perogy prize packs.

As far as the football entertainment goes, it should have been aimed at the target audience, most likely 18-50yr old males. So some kind of rock band and/or hot chick singer. Ask yourself how many 18-50yr old males want to see Lightfoot, Carly Rae, or Beiber? How about zero?
It worked. The amount of facebook posts I saw about people watching the half-time show just to see Bieber and Carly Rae Jepson was pretty large. Probably didn't watch much else of the game though.
