FCC superbowl note

Apparently having Paul McCartney sing wasn't the first idea that Super Bowl organizers had for the halftime show:
Halftime show planners, concerned about the backlash after last year's 'wardrobe malfunction,' attempted to come up with as noncontroversial a show as possible. One such idea was to have representatives of the world's religions assemble on the field and sing a medley of songs (building up to "It's A Small World After All"), accompanied by the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. The idea ran into logistical problems -- some Muslims interpret Shariah law as forbidding singing, for instance -- but the idea wasn't finally put to rest until the FCC itself stepped in and expressed concern about what they described as the "excessive" sects and violins in the show.
