Beyoncé Beams About Blue Ivy, Teases Super Bowl Set on NFL Network

Beyoncé

Sunday is all about Beyoncé…and football. In preparation for the Super Bowl halftime show, Bey made the media rounds on Thursday. After her press conference, she changed into a red dress and sat down with Deion Sanders on the NFL Network to discuss her highly-anticipated performance, motherhood, and some of her favorite past performers.

She remained tight-lipped about what she’s got in store (aside from saying that there will be new choreography and wardrobe changes). She has been preparing for months, watching past performances online, and selecting which songs she will fit into her 12-minute set.

“This is the highlight of a career,” said Bey, who admitted that she gets nervous. “The hardest thing was figuring out what I was gonna perform.”

Mrs. Carter also opened up about her one-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, who knows the “Single Ladies” dance and sings “Uh oh!”

Beyoncé even sang some of the lyrics to Deion’s 1994 rap single “Must Be The Money” and got up to do the choreography.

Check out the highlights below.

Beyoncé

In a little over 72 hours, Beyoncé will headline the Super Bowl XLVII halftime show. Before she takes the field at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, the 31-year-old singer went in front of reporters at a press conference on Thursday.

First, she put the lip-syncing controversy to rest once and for all by singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” live, receiving roaring applause from reporters.

Once that was out of the way, she discussed her performance of the National Anthem at President Obama’s inauguration, plans for Sunday’s show, rumors that Destiny’s Child will join her onstage, and hinted about a tour.

On the lip-syncing controversy: “I decided to sing along with my pre-recorded track… I’m very proud of my performance.”

On a potential Destiny’s Child reunion at the Super Bowl: “I can’t really give you any details.”

On whether she will perform at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards: “I don’t know if I’m performing at the Grammys…”

On when she will tour: “I would say soon and I may have an announcement after the performance.”

Touchdown! Beyoncé makes the rules, transforming into a super-hot referee in a black-and-white striped top, high-waisted shorts, thigh-high stiletto boots, and face paint, while holding a football in the latest promo photo for Super Bowl XLVII.
