Sings will.i.am, "In America we need to get things straight / Obama, let's get these kids educated / Create jobs so the country stays stimulated."

The Black Eyed Peas switched up their lyrics during the Super Bowl halftime show.

In "Where Is the Love?," will.i.am included a call-out to President Barack Obama, whom he supported in the last election, about education and employment.

"In America we need to get things straight / Obama, let's get these kids educated / Create jobs so the country stays stimulated," he sang.

(They also used the radio-friendly version of "Let's Get It Started" instead of the original song's title, "Let's Get Retarded.")

The group also faced a glitch when Fergie's sound briefly cut out during "I Gotta Feeling."

It appeared Usher may have had a slight issue at first detaching himself from the rope that lowered him to the stage, but he was able to hit his first notes of "O.M.G.," featuring will.i.am.
