Beyonce goes live for Super Bowl halftime


If any questions lingered about Beyonce’s ability to sing live – or her ability to make even the most crazed football fans momentarily forget about a game – then she answered them with force and grace during her Super Bowl halftime performance Sunday night. After controversy over her lip-syncing at President Barack Obama’s second inauguration, she opened a news conference last week with an a cappella version of the national anthem – and told reporters that there’d be no lip-syncing for the Super Bowl. Her opening song, “Love on Top,” quickly confirmed it. It was rumored for weeks that Destiny’s Child, the group that first made Beyonce a star only to disband in 2006, would reunite in New Orleans. The rumor turned out to be true. – Baltimore Sun
