beyonce bowl

Beyonce’s anxiously awaited Superbowl halftime performance took place this morning, I PVR’d the entire Superbowl, all 4 hours of it only to watch 10 min of Beyonce, I am a true Stan. Beyonce was amazing, dressed in all black leather, she started off by performing Crazy In Love, End of Time and Baby Boy. Then Kelly & Michelle jumped onto the stage and performed Bootylicious and Independent Women before Beyonce asked them to help her sing Single Ladies, it was perfection. She ended off her set with Halo & thank everyone for the opportunity to perform. The stage was in the shape of her face, you have to see it to get what I mean. Below are pics from the BeyonceBowl performance, her affectionate hug with her husband after her performance & als the congratulatory tweet from the FLOTUS Michelle Obama, enjoy!

Oh Alicia Keys sang the national anthem at the beginning of the game and Jennifer Hudson also sang with Sandy Hook Elementary School.
