Were you nervous at halftime?
Fergie: Hell, yeah, I was nervous. Are you kidding me? Some of my notes were pitchy. That was just from all of the excitement, and I was nervous. But it was so exhilarating. So big. That's a once-in-a-lifetime thing, and it was just so exciting.
Did you watch footage of Axl Rose swaying to prepare for playing Sweet Child O' Mine?
Fergie: Oh, no. Axl is one of my vocal idols. I've emulated him for years.
Did you feel for Christina Aguilera after her national anthem?
Fergie: I did. It's such a huge venue. Your nerves just take a hold of you, so I completely understand. She's one of the best singers of our time, so nobody can take that away from her. You get nervous at these things. We're human.
