Did you watch Beyonce and Destiny Child’s big Superbowl half time show? As promised, the pop diva sang live and she danced her butt off.  The result was a pretty damn entertaining half time show. Kudos to Beyonce for giving it her all.

It was a total trip back to the 90′s when Bey brought out her Destiny’s Child bandmates Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland, midway through the performance.  And that stage full of Beyonce doppelgangers. Nice touch!  Were we ready for that jelly? I think we were. What a show.

It was so good, the lights blew out after! Took 15-20 minutes to get them back.

Check out the performance below.

    agreed…thats why chris tweet above is funny..it was like she was trying to prove it was live but everyone knows its hard to sing live and dance like that  and most singers lip synch or backup track (which I think is very different than lip synching) on Super Bowls and National Anthems – After all Whitney Houstons was the most popular and was not sung live.  Although I remember watching that performance with the american flag and going woah
    WHERE IS TATE STEVENS COMMERCIAL – ITS LOOKING LIKE PEPSI BAILED ON HIM – I HAVENT READ ANY OF THE AD ARTICLES THAT MENTION HIM.

    I understand it’s probably a very much lost cause, but my problem with the halftime show was that this game is watched by families…with children…and her dress (or lack of it) and much of the dancing (along with a number of the commercials) just aren’t what I want when I think family entertainment…

     Hatahs to the left – Beyonce KILLED it tonight. She shut up all those who criticized and questioned her ability to sing live, her integrity, her ability to dance and entertain her ass off with poise, professionalism and charisma.  I saw her in a different light with this performance -  She is Queen B right now in the industry, and those IMO unable to see that have to be either jealous of her beauty, of her talent, her success, or they have no effing clue (and need to get one) regarding what real talent looks like.  Let’s see Britney or Madonna or Gaga or any other current female entertainer give the kind of show she just did…

  • Christopher Auyeung

    One of the great performers of our generation. Incredible talent (and stamina). What a show! And people are saying she didn’t sing enough (which I disagree with) but even if that were true, I think she kept the audience in mind. People are watching to be entertained, not to witness the vocal performance of a lifetime. I thought she struck the perfect balance between singing just enough (and singing INCREDIBLY) and putting on an energetic and brilliantly choreographed show.

  • http://twitter.com/MissGolightly22 No Thanks

    She danced, she had a lot of electro stuff. But singing? No. Not until Halo. The first half of her performance was basically her walking around pointing to people grunting out something or other and letting out a few notes. Single Ladies was a major disappointment.  

  • tibitibis

    Well , I’m not surprised at all that she did a great spectacle ,looked beautiful , danced like crazy (in a good way i mean :) ), she’s a wonderful performer and the ‘Destinity Child’ moment was amazing !!…but very short :( I never had doubts about her vocals , but i still disapproving her lip-singing at the Inauguration day , it was just not the day to do a lip-sing …NO! ….not that she gonna be worry by my opinion though lol ;)

     

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=579290324 Michael Bishop

    Ok, I don’t know what some people have been watching, but Beyonce’s halftime show was “OK” at best, she sang on portions of some songs, and that singin was limited to a line here or there.  The only time she sang was during Halo and then she sounded winded, and shouted the song.  The performance was a let down to the hype and fell short of Madonna’s performance last year.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PSHFTD4YV3QOE3INABJUXZSWMU hillstreetblooz

    We were treated to three different levels of superstar talent in this year’s Superbowl… 3 different and distinct styles, all legitimate superstars and standouts in their genres of popular music – JHud the Old School Diva, Alicia Keys the Singer/Songwriter NeoSoul stylist and Beyonce… These Girls Are On Fire right now – deservedly so.  Good to see Jhud in this group getting her share of shine.

    Madonna looked like the old, tired, washed up no singing (for real) poser she’s always been. Having Beyonce’s performance as a contrast should shame her behind to take that seat she’s been needing to take for about 10 years now.

    Madonna’s show was creative and upbeat,  Beyonce pretty much gyrated her hips and asked the crowd to clap.  She sang about 3 lines, and shouted off key to Halo.  Madonna may not be a twenty something anymore (age does not matter anyway, or it shouldn’t – that’s ageist), but she could teach Beyonce a thing or two about performing on the grand stage.  Beyonce was “ok”, but she did not live up to the hype. 

  • 1rollbounce2

    Well, the girls body and moves could make a straight woman gay. So that revealing costume is worse than a nipple huh?  

    I dunno – she belongs up where she sits entertainerwise, but I am not a fan…can’t pinpoint the quality/tone of voice I don’t like - little too cocky for me – and if it’s true about JayZ blowin’ off Robert DeNiro a few months ago, they’re a match made in heaven.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PSHFTD4YV3QOE3INABJUXZSWMU hillstreetblooz

    Madonna has always been IMO at best a mediocre singer, a mediocre dancer whose talent was in providing a sort of shock value that seemed racy and risque for the time. Nothing wrong with a little hype, used right. In Madonna’s case, her carer for me has been nothing but hype built upon hype with no real substance, very little signs of real talent. Mick Jagger summed up rather succintly how he viewed her, and it echoes pretty much my view of her as an entertainer and singer – a thimbleful of talent in a sea of ambition. She’s managed to work it and make it work for 30 years, more power to her – but her slip is starting to show now. Whatever floats one’s boat on that sea, I reckon. I didn’t buy the hype about her when she was in her twenties and nothing she’s done in her later years has changed my mind. Different strokes and all that stuff.

    Madonna is a legend. Period. Her talent or lack of talent is subjective. If Michael Jackson was King of Pop, Madonna was Queen of Pop. Haters were saying back in the day that she will never last and she shut them up. She build herself a multimillionaire empire. Both Madonna and Beyonce are two different artists that are/were both influential in their time. Madonna may not be churning out the pop hits anymore but she can still fill stadiums. She just came off a worldwide tour and was the highest grossing female performer.

    Beyonce’s performance helped the Super Bowl be more entertaining. As you (jokingly) said, her performance was so electric that the power went out, after which the 49ers came back to life. Too little too late, but what a good fight they put up at the end.

     Madonna’s legacy to pop music IMO? Making it okay to sell IMAGE over TALENT.  She paved the way for the Britney Spears and the rest of the lip synching brigade of overhyped image driven stars for whom having some real talent to rely on, or actual singing ability was no longer necessary. Madonna only true talent has been in marketing herself. That’s the only area of real talent IMO she’s ever possessed.

    Beyonce didn’t live up to the hype.  I like “Single Ladies” but just couldn’t hear the vocals.  Madonna still is hot and DOES entertain!

  • Jordana33

    Madonna definitely entertains and her concerts are still fantastic; she’s another underrated artist, IMO. However, in terms of half time shows, Beyonce’s was on a different level.  Her dancing was stronger (despite Madonna’s more elaborate choreography), the singing was better (and real!) and the energy level was higher. Beyonce’s personality also played more to the large stadium crowd. Madonna’s show was very good overall, but it tended to be uneven, with certain high points (e.g. when she performed “Like a Prayer” with Cee Lo) and some very low points (e.g the cheesy cheerleader performance). 

    Just because you can dance, doesn’t mean you have to dance  so much that it stops you from singing

     A lot of us enjoy the dancing just as much as the singing…depending on the song, of course.

    Chris Sligh: Beyonce just mocked us all to our face by actually singing a total of 45 seconds of an 8 min show.

    Chris continues to prove that claiming to be Christian and being Christian are two entirely different things.  He’s such a hateful and bitter person. 

    I’ve never been a fan of beyonce.  I think she’s way overrated but even I can admit that her half-time performance was the best I’ve seen in years.  She gave it everything she had and then some.  I think she felt she had something to prove and she proved it.

    Madonna’s last year was a joke.  She looked absolutely ridiculous trying to hold onto her youth while lip syncing and clumsily dancing around.

    I truly believe that Beyonce is Tina Turner 2.0, this generation’s Tina Turner and she’ll be around for a longgger time.
    Sometimes you don’t have to have a GREAT voice (see Madonna) to be a performance artist and work that stage. 
    And I’m tired of the Superbowl half time being a “contest” between (aging) artists. Just enjoy the show folks. No one is better than the other.
    Complaining that Bey does the same moves — well, if you’ve ever seen Tina, she does the same doggone moves too!

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I liked Madonna’s performance as well, although a lot of other artists contributed to it (CeeLo, LMFAO, Nicki Minaj, etc.). I think that a lot of people don’t regard these performances as “contests” (I don’t), although considering that it’s part of the biggest sports contest in the U.S., maybe that kind of makes people think of it as a “contest”. lol

  • jpfan2

    I enjoyed Madonna”s show more last year (it was so OTT) but Beyonce did a good job. I really loved the Destiny’s Child reunion!

  • windmills

    I prefer a lot of songs in Madonna’s songbook to Beyonce’s, but I preferred most of Beyonce’s Super Bowl performance. I thought Beyonce did a better job of seeming in the moment and not getting lost in the spectacle and choreography whereas there were too many guest stunts and overall stunts that actually made Madonna look not 100% comfortable. Too, her performance got dragged down by the new single she did – I think Beyonce was smart not to sing a new single and to stick to several of her most popular hits. 

    That being said, Madonna’s set closer Like A Prayer was MUCH, MUCH better than Beyonce’s Halo. Like A Prayer was a feel good moment and it worked great musically whereas I’ve never liked Halo (nothing to do with me being a Kelly fan, I just think it’s a lyrically weak song and I never thought it suited Beyonce too well). If Beyonce had to do a ballady song I’d have preferred Irreplaceable. 

    B’s Super Bowl performance was a great advertisement for her tour IMO. The medley definitely felt a little disjointed and didn’t flow as well as I’d have liked but the impression I was left with was B left everything out there and it was a command performance from her with a great feel good segment when Kelly Rowland & Michelle Williams of Destiny’s Child joined her. 

    As far as the singing/dancing ratio, I’d have preferred more singing but the halftime show is really about entertaining and from that point of view, Beyonce did her job really well. I don’t really see it as any different than having long instrumental solos without vocals.

  • mmb

    I’m a little ??? at the Madonna v. Beyonce stuff I’m seeing everywhere.  Was it a contest?  Does the winner get a trophy?? lol.  I thought BOTH half-time shows were terrific — Loved Madonna’s and Loved Beyonce’s.  I personally like Madonna’s music better than Beyonces — just a matter of taste.  I think Beyonce is an absolutely A+++, electric performer.  Just fantastic.  Not a big fan of her singles (actually prefer the Destiny’s child stuff).  Madonna’s show was big, colorful, full of special guests and hits.  Beyonces show was super high energy and she looked and sounded great. Madonna is a legend.  Beyonce will be a legend as well.  Hopefully when Beyonce is in her 50s she will still be packing them in to her live shows all over the world as Madonna does.  I suspect she will be.  Excellent halftime show by Bey this year.

  • bridgette12

    Your are so right, Madonna began the era of barely dressed lip synching women, who’s biggest talent was being able to fool people into thinking they ever could actually sing. People like Britney, Kesha and numerous others, should be splitting their fortunes with Madonna for helping create their particular genre called the “POPTART”.

    mmb: I’m a little ??? at the Madonna v. Beyonce stuff I’m seeing everywhere.  Was it a contest?  Does the winner get a trophy?? lol.

    I thought about that before posting. I definitely think some of it is the inevitable diva fanbase wars (which I’m sure many media sites will milk). But for me, it was more about putting the performances in context. It makes no sense to me to compare B or Madonna to Prince or Bruce because the performance and  musical styles are so wildly different. Beyonce and Madonna were the 2 most recent halftime shows and they both focused on pop smashes with lots of choreography involved so on some level, it makes sense to compare them if you’re trying to put them in context (which is part of the “what were the best halftime shows” conversation). 

    I’m not really invested in either act though so I was really just trying to talk about what I enjoyed and didn’t enjoy in each of the last 2 halftime shows. Going back a little further I think most would agree Madonna and Beyonce were both loads better than the Black Eyed Peas. 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PSHFTD4YV3QOE3INABJUXZSWMU hillstreetblooz

     Lol, the same moves criticism is… interesting.  At least she can move and dance without needing tons of dancers distracting from glaring vocal deficiencies, a la Madonna, Britney or even Janet J.  When the time comes for rubber to meet the road, she’s proven she can forego the dancers and gimmicks and SING. That’s what sets her a cut above the rest of the pack at present – she has real singing chops to fall back on.

  • ANNIEBA

    I thought Beyonce was great and Lord, but she is ridiculously beautiful. This woman just had a baby for gosh sakes! I am not wild about her music except “Crazy in Love”. I actually prefer Madonna’s music but she was my jam back in the day. That girl pushed every boundary there was, so I was always awed by her ballsyness too. Beyonce is gorgeous and talented but very bland in the edginess department. I enjoyed the visual of her performance, the girls were stunning.

    Madonna spent at two decades cowriting on smash singles (since Get Into the Groove) and showing a preternatural ability to absorb trends in pop and dance music and adapt them to her own catalog. If any producer (which she also has been) had that kind of record, we’d call him or her a genius.

    It doesn’t necessarily make for a better half time Superbowl show (if I cared enough to debate the point, I’d probably say it didn’t), but the idea that she had nothing but shock and awe and a studio-sweetened voice to rely on is simply not borne out by the facts.

    As for Ms. Knowles-Carter, I thought it was a fine job and I did get a bit excited for Destiny’s Child (and to whomever it was that said Williams lied: All she said, AFAIK, was that it wasn’t confirmed that they’d perfom, which is what she was supposed to say).

    I’m actually curious if that version of Halo (which took a notable left turn from the studio rendition) is going to be part of the tour. It has more of an arena vibe.

    People are haters because the expectation was she actually SING the National Anthem when presented with the huge honour at the most important political event in the past four years? 

  • http://twitter.com/MikhailXO MichaelG (MikhailXO)

    I agree…singing “meh” The entertainment, dancing was fun.

    i know,.. also @JessicaESanchez’ tweeted “I think beyonce is a queen! The most amazing! #superbowl” but shes not on your list but you have J. Ledet’s hUh..

    I don’t understand this kind of music. To me, this is not music. The flamboyance and lack of artistry and emotion is just too much for me. I miss the raw, emotional impact of U2′s performance on Superbowl many years ago.

  • Miz

    I thoroughly enjoyed it and was thrilled to see Destiny’s Child together again. I would have liked her to sing a little more, but I was fine with it.

  • stardust462

    I don’t really care that she didn’t sing much, except for Halo at the end. I’ve heard those songs a hundred times, so it was nice to see some pretty tight and awesome dancing with really cool lighting effects to change it up a little.

    I wish Destiny’s Child was on longer though. Don’t they have a new song to promote?

  • mjsbigblog

    Reason #1 why I kinda hate doing these twitter reactions:

    Sorry, once I put up a post, I don’t have time to carefully monitor twitter feeds for late comers. 

    I gots other things to do…like a blog to run.  

    No deliberate dis against Jessica–she posted her reaction hours after I put up this post–and like I said, my attention is needed elsewhere.

  • mjsbigblog

    Destiny’s Child was almost like an afterthought, tho, and that they would sing with Beyonce on “Single Ladies” rather than perform another one of the groups’ hits…  Well, it was Beyonce’s show, and there was no doubt she was the star.

  • http://twitter.com/MikhailXO MichaelG (MikhailXO)

    Who’s hating? Opinions differ.

    Quite honestly all Beyonce was missing was the strippers pole.  Sad, such a beautiful lady with a great voice and it looked like a strip tease.

  • Lucie Laniel

    Don’t know about other Idols but with Scotty, I think it was genuine. He was a favourite of hers when she mentored AI10 and I think the admiration  was reciprocal.

    Of course the fact that he is now a 19 yr old young man watching her last night may have helped a bit.  

  • girlygirltoo

    I don’t know why any of the Idols would feel the need to butter up Beyonce and Jay-Z on twitter. It’s not like either of them are likely to see these tweets.

    For example, I know Kris and Adam have both talked about how much they love Beyonce before, so it’s not like this is the first time they’ve praised her. And I would bet it’s the same thing with the others who tweeted about her halftime performance. Lots of musicians are fans of Beyonce, so why wouldn’t these ex-Idols, etc, be among them?

  • justmefornow

    You know, I’ve been hearing a lot of that today at work which kind of surprises me.
    She didn’t really offend me, I just find her music crappy.

  • justmefornow

    LOL This graphic called “The Current State of Pop Music”, pretty much sums it up for me:

  • elliegrll

    Aside from maybe Jennifer, Carrie and Kelly, I doubt that any of the other idol alums are even on Beyonce’s radar.  There’s very little chance that she is going to see or find out about the tweets from someone like Chris Sligh, or any of the other people who tweeted.

  • standtotheright

    As one of my FB friends pointed out to another FB friend, these cherry-picking head-to-head comparisons don’t make much of a point.

    A report just came out that only 5 percent of the top UK tracks were written solely by their performers. Interesting note: Gotye and fun.’s singles, which are generally considered to have some claim to craft and artistry (or at least the Grammy committee thinks so), had mutliple cowriters. Swedish House Mafia and Calvin Harris, who release EDM tracks, wrote all of the material on their top tracks.

    Collaboration can lead to crappy songs. Solo songwriting can lead to crappy songs. Both can lead to very good songs.

  • justmefornow

    Oh I agree.
    But 6 writers and 4 producers is one hell of an expensive crappy song.

     Is Madonna suppose to just fade away because she is older now?

  • MellyPer1692

    Lol at the Michelle Williams picture being used instead of Beyonce. Probably the most attention she’ll get.

  • jpfan2

    Third most watched Super Bowl in history (after 2011 and 2012). So Madonna had a bigger audience than Beyonce (but probably not by much.)

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/HWRPW434YQTROZ3J5E4BSLWEYM H.A.

    I’m just curious if it’s a cultural thing that people who think Beyonce’s dancing is just a strip show. I’ve been all over the world, South America, Caribbean, Africa etc, and Beyonce’s dancing ain’t got nothing on the locals. Have anyone been to a Reggae, Soca club or a Caribbean Carnival?

  • bridgette12

    Nope, I just hope she fade away because she’s had the same act since she began. The skimpy outfits, lots of dancers and lip syncing hasn’t evolved after all these years. 

  • http://twitter.com/bagel08 John S

    Some you wouldn’t expect to have an opinion reacted. Dagum!

    I love that Scotty tweeted that. It showed that he is just a typical 19 year old boy who gets excited over girls wearing less revealing clothing :) Oh, and not to mention he probably thought her performance was great ;)

  • mjsbigblog

    I don’t know why any of the Idols would feel the need to butter up Beyonce and Jay-Z on twitter. It’s not like either of them are likely to see these tweets.

    Not all of the Idols are kissing butt.  Casey James retweeted this:

    Even Scotty didn’t allow his religiosity to turn him into a pious stick in the mud. lol.

  • http://www.facebook.com/dawn.p.joblon Dawn Perretti Joblon

    Think it was more her outfit not the actual dancing. 

  • http://twitter.com/RonnieDRocks Ronnie D

     I have a feeling Madonna will be remembered a lot longer than Beyonce, especially her music lol.

    Scotty is 1/4 Puerto Rican. His hot Latino side of him couldn’t resist the bootylicious Beyonce. lol

    Madonna wore the same outfits and still do and she managed to raise a beautiful, poised, smart daughter who has no interest in getting in the music business. She is opposite of her mother which goes to show you can teach your children values and be independent enough from following pop culture trends. This is all show business. It’s not like these women are going around slutting. 

  • Valarie

    Beyonce was great, but I would have preferred more singing and less stomping. There was a lot of stomping.

  • genius13

    I mean that one is vastly out-matched by the other

    There are so many problems with this way of thinking.

    Why not pray for the dads too? Do they not have a responsibility to their daughters? Or do they only raise their sons?

    There are more immediate things parents have to worry about today, such as their kids being safe in their classrooms, coaches molesting their kids, drugs, date rape, STDs, etc.

    Should parents be worried about more than the halftime show and worry about some of the MALES on the field, including the coaches? College and Pro sports are full of illegal drugs and full of players those who commit actual crimes (rape,murder,assault) FAR WORSE than performing in a (basically) a bathing suit.

    There is a little button on the remote that is labeled with three letters, O-F-F.

    Lastly, didn’t Casey take off his shirt during auditions? j/s ;)
