Beyonce turned the Super Bowl into “Beyonce Bowl” with her dazzling girl power-fueled half time performance on Sunday night (February 3). Kicked off by a special countdown video featuring her legions of fans, Bey took the massive stage, flashing with silhouettes of her face, and performed “Love On Top.” Like a fireball, Bey whipped through a medley of her solo hits, outfitted in an eye-catching leather corset and high boots, including “Crazy In Love” and “Baby Boy.”
Like many had speculated, Bey then brought out her Destiny’s Child girls Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams for a Destiny’s Child reunion. The trio shook their jelly to “Bootylicious” and “Independent Women” from the “Charlie’s Angels” soundtrack. Kelly and Michelle stayed on and then sang accompaniment for “Single Ladies,” which Bey finished off with dozens of background dancers. “Where my ring at?” she cried out, playfully.
If all that wasn’t enough, the superstar summoned the strength to finish off her set with a rousing version of “Halo.” “I want to feel your energy,” she told the crowd with her hands outstretched. After she belted the last note, the singer humbly took her bow. “Thank y’all so much. Thank you for this moment. God bless y’all,” she grinned and left the field
Twitter went wild for Beyonce’s performance. “BeyonceBowl” quickly became a trending topic and fans gushed about the flawless show, including celebrities. “The Best Halftime EVER!!! #” shared singer Adrienne Bailon while model/actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley said, “There is no one else in the world who can put it down like @beyonce- I love you!! ” Several fans dubbed the performance the best of all time, with “unbelievable performance … She’s at the TOP of her game- best half time show in a while” while others said they had no interest in the game following Bey’s exist. “Wait I’m expected to sit through the rest of the game after that?!#beyoncebowl”
