Beyoncé Earns Rave Reviews for Super Bowl Halftime Show

Destiny's Child

The Ravens weren’t the only big winners at Super Bowl XLVII. Beyoncé scored a touchdown with her fans, critics, and peers with her show-stopping halftime set at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on Sunday.

The verdict was unanimous—everyone from her sister Solange to former Destiny’s Child diva LeToya Luckett to First Lady Michelle Obama raved about the performance. Even rappers including Fabolous, Diddy, and Machine Gun Kelly were stanning for King Bey.

Her proud hubby Jay-Z, who doesn’t tweet often, returned to Twitter to praise Mrs. Carter: “Lights out!!! Any questions??” he wrote.

But not everyone had nice things to say. While she gave props to Beyoncé, Keyshia Cole called out Michelle Williams for her part during the Destiny’s Child medley. “Then Michell sung and woke my ass up from my daze! She always fuckN the groove up,” wrote the blunt songstress.

See the glowing reactions from Twitter.

    But Keyshia makes her money on perm boxes though … Michelle is Destiny’s Child , you’re FRANKIE’S child , remember that …

    AnyWHORE . Halftime show was phenomenal , I loved EVERY MOMENT and it’s no shade , but I think Kelly and Michelle sounded good doing Single Ladies . My life is now complete .

    @Xhir, I am crying. Lol. She worrying about Michelle she need to worry about them album sales. Ppl always have neg things to say about Michelle but she balances out dc3. I love her to death. She did a great job.

    @Meme, RIGHT ! Each of those ladies bring something special and unique to DC including Michelle . If people took the time out to reasearch , they’d know that Michelle fucking SLAYS ! Keyshia was just tryna generate publicity for that flop of an album she has . She even went as far as to post a link to it after she came for Michelle . At the end of the day you know what Michelle is doing ? Making that fucking money and not worried about the next bitch ! Lol

    @Xhir,

    Michelle has a Grammy, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and IS apart of Destiny Childs? She should be happy she is performing at the Super Bowl this is a great accomplishment for the African American woman. We all know she isn’t the best of vocalist, but neither is Keyshia herself.

    @Xhir, Was Keyshia drunk? She must have been because I couldn’t tell what the hell she was talking about.

    Ursula Reply:

    @Xhir, What I don’t understand is why people are going so hard on Michelle when it wasn’t her moment in the first place. Clearly she was a guest in Bey’s set and people would have been complaining if DC didn’t reunite. Michelle’s strong suit is Broadway, ‘single ladies’ is not her song or routine, so kill all the unnecessary criticism about her.

    I’m curious as to why a first single wasn’t release ahead of this performance and performed during the half time show. Apart from that, everything is falling falling into place, her team is doing a great job. I’m tearing up all over away. Only thing we need now is a unbelievable first single and for the album title to be ‘King B’.

    P.s why hasn’t rihanna congrats beyonce or send out a tweet. She’s always praises beyonce publicly. Must have been scared after that performance

    @Meme, stop making assumptions and judgments about what rihanna did or didnt do. you dont know these people, youre a fucking commentator. learn your place.

    @Meme, FOR WHAT? BEYONCE NEVER ACKNOWLEDGE’S RIHANNA, SO WHY SHOULD RIHANNA SAY ANYTHING? BESIDES RIH NEEDS TO FOCUS ON REHEARSING HER GRAMMY PERFORMANCE FOR THIS SUNDAY.

    She may have been good for Beyonce but a lot of football fans were making sandwiches or grabbing another beer. About 30 seconds into her performance and I was looking for better things to do.

    I’m glad to see so many people givng her props for being the legend she is. Keyshia Cole is too funny for that Tweet but people need to leave Michelle alone. She will always be DC. Loved their bit.

  8. You Thought It I Post It

    Why am i not surprised by this post! Not to sound salty or come off as a hater but of course everyone will be raving about her performance since they practically forced her promotions down our throat including the aftermath reviews that follows such as this one in which we cannot escape!

    How i feel: Her performance was ok nothing i haven’t seen on her world tours. Had she been flying, outfit lit up, more fireworks, and newer songs then in my opinion she would’ve delivered an incredible performance! However, the only thing that sparked my interest is the stage and it’s color! I give her performance 3.5/5!

    Need i remind some of you where your faith should be…God is the only Idol not Beyonce or Rihanna! Have a good day!

    The super bowl is a family event so the halftime show must be appropriate for everyone. Love Beyonce’s music and show. Just wish she was more appropriately dressed for the children out there watching.

    @GSTAR, man, this was an impressively ignorant comment. it doesnt even make sense. are you implying that the world should not host celebratory events because “africa is starving”. like what does that even mean?

    sserw Reply:

    @sserw, i mean you do realize that people in africa host events, concerts, and have as well right? or are you just posing as a philanthropist when really you have no clue about africa?

    I think Keyshia should’ve kept her comment positive because it’s going to reflect bad on her but if anything, I give her credit for giving her honest opinion. I love Michelle, I really do but she is always just so out of place. Watch the performance again and ONLY focus on Michelle and her facial expressions. She lacks the fierceness that Beyonce and Kelly have when peforming. Did you see her attempting the “Single Ladies” dance!? She could’ve at least whipped her hair a bit more. #FAIL.

  15. SynceR3

    B did a dope job!!! But why people mad at keyshia for saying what most people was thinking!!!! I got to admit Michelle look a tab bit out of place but thats her lol … If you ask me they should of had Letoya and Latavia come out and make it epic!!! but it was a good show tho!

    Yep, Beyonce and the gladiators battling it out in the Superbowl; good combo. Are you kidding me? What beer drinking, football fan wants to see her? Seriously? Just for the girls who were stuck watching the game ,I guess.

    Is It True That Beyoncé’s 1st Single Is Called: “King Me”… Because Everybody Keep Saying That The Single Comes Out Sometimes In February and Album In April???
