The BLACK EYED PEAS have crushed KENNY CHESNEY's hopes of headlining the 2011 Super Bowl half-time show after American football bosses named the pop stars as next year's main act.
Earlier this year, Chesney threw his cowboy hat in the ring for consideration as a performer for the big game in Arlington, Texas after fans created a Facebook page online, called Kenny Chesney for Super Bowl 2011.
He told reporters: "I would love to do half-time at the Super Bowl. That'd be fun."
But it's the Black Eyed Peas who will run the show at Super Bowl XLV on February 6th, NFL bosses announced on Friday
