    Default Who the hell is Estelle???

    Estelle headlines All-Star Halftime Show

    NEW YORK -- London-based R&B artist Estelle will perform at the 2008 Pepsi MLS All-Star Game Halftime Show, broadcast live to a national television audience on Thursday, July 24th at 7:00 p.m. ET on ESPN2, TeleFutura and CBC. Major League Soccer's 13th annual All-Star Game features the 2008 MLS All-Star squad taking on the storied English Premier League side, West Ham United, at BMO Field in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Estelle teamed up with Kanye West and will.i.am from the Black Eyes Peas on "American Boy", a funk infused number one hit on the international charts.

    I've heard American Boy and I think it's pretty good. Will definitely give her a shot at the half. All part of the entertainment

    Mabe they're trying to capture a bigger audience across the pond. I imagine it will be carried in other countries on various local stations atleast.

    Just think in Super Bowl terms. "Name" acts are part of the show.

    I'd rather hear the Guess Who, but then I'm an "Oldtimer."

    I think that some of the lads on TFC will be happier that it's Estelle rather than Guess Who!

    well... I was being facetious about The Guess Who.
    I just didn't realise that Estelle was popular in around these parts... mainly because I'm not up on my R&B.
    So I just thought that they could have picked someone that more Canadians could enjoy... I guess they did...

    It will be amazing hearing American Boy, how could TFC fans be upset with this choice, now if they could add the Saturdays, that would be awsome.

    Overall I think it is well established that Toronto FC's fanbase skews signifficantly older than the rest of MLS. An up and coming r&b singer from the UK isnt likely to ring very many bells around here (I know I hadn't heard of her until this morning, and im still only 23).

    Though I dont think anybody will/should complain all that much. I think alot of us are just thankful it isnt Bowling For Soup or some other shitty American pop-punk band.

    "Throughout Shine, Estelle combines sensual, thoughtful love songs that display her unmistakable womanliness with a collection of edgy hip hop songs littered with thought provoking lyricism...." - wha?? but maybe Ricketts could do ball tricks to whatever that means...

    Fuck that. I'm 20 and I would rather The Guess Who, I'd settle for Guess Who tribute.

    ^^^
    sam roberts played at the winter classic at the ralph... and i like sam, but he was terrible live... maybe cause it was cold but shit wow ...he sucked.


    MLS + ESPN + selling soccer to the US = Estelle @ halftime ( Estelle would catch the MTV Crowd watching to see Beckham lol )

    no need to further sell this to the canadians... we already pack BMO week in and week out.
    c'mon you Reds!

    If they want someone from the UK, what about the Saturdays? They could play their new hit "If This Is Love", BMO would rock.
