Beyoncé Performs at Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show [Video]

Beyoncé

Beyoncé entered the history books alongside Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Prince, and Madonna when she headlined the Super Bowl halftime show in New Orleans on Sunday, becoming only the third female solo act to do so.

After months of preparations, the 31-year-old superstar invaded the field with a dazzling set complete with fireworks, an army of female dancers, and some very special guests.

Dressed in a black leather leotard, she opened her 12-minute set with “Love On Top” followed by “Crazy in Love,” delving into her catalog of hits including “End of Time” and “Baby Boy.”

And despite denials from her Destiny’s Child bandmates, she reunited with Kelly and Michelle for a medley of DC classics including “Bootylicious” and “Independent Women.” The girls stuck around for “Single Ladies” before B shut it down with “Halo” as the stadium lit up with blue lights.

“Thank you for this moment. God bless ya’ll,” said King B moments before the power went out at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

    @lily, HOW CAN PEOPLE SAY THAT MADONNA’S LAZY PERFORMANCE LAST YEAR IS BETTER THAN THIS WELL THOUGHT AND WELL EXECUTED PERFORMANCE? HOW?

    @jay, Madonna’s performance was a big show. I prefer Beyoncé but I have to admit that Madonna’s performance was more entertained.

    KaramelKisses Reply:

    @boom boom, to clarify madonna lip-synced her entire 12 minute half-time performance. if bey had taken that route, i’m sure the show would have been turned up to another level but then you guys would have dogged her out. secondly, madonna’s musical catalog is larger than bey’s. madonna been doing this for 30+ years now while bey has 16+ years under her belt. janet’s show the year she performed had alot of choreography but then again that’s what janet is known for strong, masculine choreography i.e. control, it’s all for you. bey did a good job, she made the hive proud. no new music is what surprised me. anyone willing to bet she’ll be added as a grammy performer late next week where she’ll perform new music?

    [Reply]

    KaramelKisses Reply:

    @ree, IF she lip synched i wouldn’t have been mad at her seeing as how she RARELY goes that route. however if you had the sense and ability of a third grader and read the article then you would know that she admitted to singing along w/ her pre-recorded track. quite frankly dear, i don’t give a damn either way but if/when an artist does lip sync make it look believable. for me, you can clearly tell that madonna was doing it for her set last year. but thank you for playing! #lightsout

    To tell the truth , my favorite moment was Destiny’s Child doing single ladies.. Always wanted to see tham do that song and they killed it , jut wanted them to do the whole thing.. Bee is my chick but it was nothing new but single ladies.. The show was just ok but didn’t top the other ones like I was thanking she was going to do..

    P.S Kelly Rowland is getting real thick looks really good..

  38. BEDSTUYFLY

    TO BE HONEST, SHE DID AN AMAZING JOB. BUT IT WAS A LIL’ UNDERWHELMING AND NOT EXACTLY WHAT I EXPECTED. ESPECIALLY THE WAY HER TEAM HYPED IT UP TO BE. I WAS MORE DISTRACTED WITH THE STAGE LIGHTING EFFECTS & ARTSY VISUAL BACH DROPS.

    KELLY DID A PRETTY GOOD JOB.
    MICHELLE IS SAME OLE’ MICHELLE
    AND AGAIN, BEYONCE WAS GREAT. LOTS OF ENERGY, GOOD VOCALS, CUTE HAIR, CUTE WARDROBE, BUT IT WAS A ROUTINE I’VE SEEN FAR TOO MANY TIMES.

    TO ME JANET JACKSON STILL HAS THE BEST SUPER BOWL PERFORMANCE BY A FEMALE. (TO ME)

    [Reply]

    KaramelKisses Reply:

    @BEDSTUYFLY, you know you and i don’t agree on much however i do agree with you on this. with all the video snippets and pictures being released i was expecting more. i wish she had incorporated countdown because her revel performance of that was stunning. but i’m willing to bet she’s going to be announced as a grammy performer late next week where new music will be debuted. the visuals for the performance were stunning, the dc reunion was great (i will always love seeing them together however i don’t for the life of me know why bey & kel just don’t drop michelle … she is always a note off & a beat behind), her costuming & vocals were very strong. she did better than alot of comtemporary artists would have, not to mention she hasn’t performed in a year so she may have to get her mojo back!

    no words. she did it just like i thought she would do. id address haters but i wont. well right quick…. of course she keeps the moves to the songs HOW THE HELL ELSE WOULD YOU DANCE TO THEM WITH HER? would michael jackson have changed up thriller every time? NO you keep stuff like that the same for the FANS. anyway theres more that i could address but i wont. well real quick… janet and madonna… NOT ONE WORD was sung live. NOT ONE. please tell me if you know of one id be happy to be corrected. quit comparing beyonce because she is INCOMPARABLE.

    [Reply]

  42. RealTalk....

    It was entertaining and the visuals was great but when Kelly pop up my eyes went and stayed on her. She killed it and look beautiful. Michelle looked nice but as usual struggled and couldn’t keep up. But I felt it was like a concert I’ve seen over and over from her nothing ground breaking. She is the best performer of our generation but not all time.

    Beyonce is a record company promotion, and her performance was about as exciting as a Britney Spears concert. Walk into any place on Bourbon Street and you will hear better. Beyonce is a nice gal, but she sucks as an entertainer. What’s up with that lizard dance of hers? She and Gay-Z aren’t worth the money they make.

    I think this is a performance that makes Beyonce’s hardcore fans ecstatic. However, for the average person who isn’t obsessed with Beyonce, her Superbowl show was… “Meh” at best. Madonna’s was technically better, more inventive and layered.

    The smartest thing she did was bring out Destiny’s Child. I think she has Kelly and Michelle so broke and hungry that they don’t realize that she needs them almost as much as they need her. By herself, she’s a hardworking performer but the show went up a notch when she brought them out.

    The second smartest thing she did was get killer effects.

    That nose job though?
