Remember that time Beyoncé’s halftime show brought the Super Bowl to a grinding gridiron halt for 35 minutes?
Thus is the power of Queen Bey’s hips. And her high octane, high electricity performance that caused a major power surge in the New Orleans Superdome, which was apparently not ready for all that jelly.
Bey growled and gyrated through a parade of hits, including “End of Time,” “Crazy in Love” and “Baby Boy” before Kelly and Michelle popped up out of nowhere (the stage), thus confirming rumors — and dispelling Michelle’s half-hearted lies — of a Destiny’s Child reunion.
The independent women got all “Bootylicious” with it then helped their dark overlord serenade the crowd with “Single Ladies.” Destiny’s bastard children barely got to put a ring on it, however, before Bey kicked them off stage so she could close the show with “Halo.”
All in all, Beyoncé proved why she’s the best live performer in the game, and yes it was all live. “I will absolutely be singing live,” she said prior to her showstopping performance. “I am well-rehearsed. This is what I was born to do.”
You say born, we say manufactured, either way, you did good, Bey. So good you cast enough shade to plunge the biggest American television event into darkness.
