Even talented, intelligent celebrities need crib notes now and then. So does Sarah Palin for that matter. Fortunately for will.i.am, technology saved the day.

The Black Eyed Peas member almost dropped the ball during a taped performance of “Don’t Stop the Party” on the French television show Taratata.

Luckily, his phone saved the day. Sure, that's kind of weak, but it's a lot better than lip-synching or flubbing it altogether. Watch his last-minute save:

Will seemed to know this was coming, pulling it out before he was supposed to begin his part. Hard to blame him. We'd forget their inane lyrics too.

The season is over, but the party don't stop.

The Black Eyed Peas lit up Dancing with the Stars last night, with Taboo, will.i.am and apl.de.ap appearing on a futuristic set to sing "Don't Stop the Party."

Soon enough, they were joined by frontwoman Fergie, who appeared high above the crowd on a platform of sorts before being lowered to the dance floor.

Hines Ward was crowned the Season 12 DWTS winner, beating out Kirstie Alley and Chelsea Kane (the Disney star formerly known as Chelsea Staub).

The Black Eyed Peas doubled it up for fans at last night's Billboard Music Awards.

Despite losing out to U2 for Top Touring Artist at the event, Fergie, will.i.am and company belted out renditions of “Just Can’t Get Enough” and “I Gotta Feeling" that had those in attendance on their feet.

Be warned: if you watch the following video while at work, you may be in danger of jumping up to dance at any moment. Just go with it...

Nicki Minaj and her unique style will be on display.

The Hangover 2 star Ken Jeong will serve as host of the newly revived awards show, which returns with a bang after a five-year hiatus.

"This song is about love and strength and is dedicated to our friends in Japan."

That's how Will.I.am introduced his group's rendition of "Just Can't Get Enough" last night, as The Black Eyed Peas followed Lee DeWyze and performed on the American Idol results show.

Toned down a bit from their Super Bowl spectacle, the single featured Will.I.am on the piano and Fergie in a white dress with St. Patrick's Day-themed nail polish. A nice touch. Check out their performance now:

If you were looking for energy and many bright lights, The Black Eyed Peas Super Bowl halftime performance went perfectly on Sunday.

But if you tuned in hoping to hear perfect sound mixing and smooth vocals, you were one of the many critics disappointed in the results.

In a new interview with Pop Eater, group member Taboo acknowledges a few "technical problems," but defends the performance overall, explaining:

The thing about it is there were 100 million viewers. If you get 60 million people who didn't like it and you get 40 million that did like the show, that's a pretty cool thing because you can't please everybody. Everybody who is a critic is going to criticize and annihilate everything you do even if it's a good thing. They just want to bring it down.

As many people who are blogging about how disappointed they were, there's a lot of people in the streets who really loved the show.

What did you think of the performance?

The Black Eyed Peas didn't have any Christina Aguilera-like mistakes during their Super Bowl XLV performance.

Quite the opposite, in fact.

The quartet kicked off a medley with “I Got a Feeling,” before Fergie was joined by Slash to perform “Sweet Child O’ Mine.” From there, Usher swooped in for a rendition of “O.M.G.," only for the group to finish up on its own with “Where is the Love” and “The Time (Dirty Bit)." The former even included a plea to Obama...

Our take? One of the most entertaining, fun-loving halftime concerts in recent memory. What did you think?

The Black Eyed Peas are on a roll.

Fresh off an American Music Awards win for Best Pop Group (click here to watch their futuristic performance), the gang will do the Super Bowl halftime show.

"The Black Eyed Peas are officially performing the Super Bowl halftime show in Dallas," will.i.am tweeted to fans, confirming the can't-miss mini-concert.

The Peas are the first non-rock group to hit the stage since Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake's famous wardrobe-malfunction during halftime in 2004.

Since then, older and less controversial artists such as the Rolling Stones, Tom Petty, The Who and Bruce Springsteen have done the honors. No longer.

They could have picked anybody. It says something that they picked us," will said.

Indeed. We can't wait to hear "Let's Get it Started" at a sporting event for once.

While Justin Bieber won Artist of the Year at last night's American Music Awards, the Black Eyed Peas proved themselves worthy of their Best Pop/Rock Group title as well. Their performance of "This Time (The Dirty Bit)" was ... something else.

Something else is the only way to put it.

The Peas Perform

There's no comparison to the flashy, glow-in-the-dark spectacle accompanying their new single, which borrows the chorus of the Dirty Dancing theme song, "(I've Had) The Time of My Life," as will.i.am and Fergie crooned to throughout.

It was the freestyle dance moves and dancers wearing box-shaped headpieces that really stole the show, though. At the end, will.i.am plugged the band's new album, saying, "November 30, The Beginning. Welcome to the future!"

Bring it on. Watch their performance after the jump!
