Multiple Grammy wins? Yes!
Appear in theatrical releases? Of course.
Put on a memorable Super Bowl performance? Cross that off the bucket list.
Beyonce’s return to music kicked off in a make it or break it performance in front of the Super Bowl crowd. She was riding the negative press of the Inaguaration lip synch scandal. While she tried to minimize it, the damage was done.
When asked if she would lip-sync during the halftime show, Beyonce said, “I will absolutely be singing live … I’m ready.”
In collaboration with Pepsi, fans were asked to upload photos in order to participate in the introduction of the singer. After the fans’ cameo, she appeared in the middle of the stage and kicked it off with a upempo “Love on Top” segued into “Crazy in Love” with strutting, dancing, and popping.
She sang “Till the End of Time” with live drums and tribal dancing leading into the Sean Paul assisted “Baby Boy” with help from her hologram dancers.
The highly anticipated Destiny’s Child reunited with their biggest hits including “Bootylicious” and “Independent Woman.” Kelly and Michelle popped up along with a multitude of flames then strutted along with Beyonce as they didn’t skip a beat and seemed to be in sync. The ladies ended their reunion by assisting her with “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It).
After strutting, dancing, and shaking what her momma gave her, Beyonce slowed it down with “Halo” in another attempt to show off her vocals.
In the end, Beyonce worked that stage like it was her declaration to gain back her throne. While audio issues were evident, she managed to get people talking and intrigued to see what her next move is.
