Ok folks, so these videos are being deleted from the internet every few minutes, I HOPE this one stays up! Being from Ireland, twitter and my facebook newsfeed has KILLED me! I couldn’t watch Beyonce, and as I’m sure you all know, I just LOVE her, HOWEVER the NFL has blocked EVERY link I could find for her performance! LUCKILY (for me) I took a video of the low quality video on my phone but I am afraid to upload it anywhere in case I get in trouble from the people that own the internet (like!) :p But as I said, hopefully this link will stay put for you all to enjoy!
I can promise it was THE most AMAZING Super Bowl show EVER though I’m sure that doesn’t help!
Beyonce had the crowd going CRAZY (in Love) with the huge 2003 hit of the same name, but with a little reggae beat thrown in and cue some crazy electric guitars by a FIERCE female guitarist. A few more hip hop beats and a seductive roll of the hips, flick of the hair and pucker of the lips, Beyonce blew a kiss to the audience and began the intro to MY fave Beyonce song “End of Time”, but with a little sax! This woman is literally the QUEEN of entertainment, everyone else may thrown down their crowns! Following this Beyonce stood in front of an interactive screen and then there was at least FIVE Beyonce’s onstage for her hit “Baby Boy”, it really strikes me at this instance that however contrived the word “fierce” may be to describe Beyonce, it REALLY is the only word that works.
Moving on to the moment we’ve all been waiting for: the intro music to “Bootylicious” strikes up “Kelly, can you handle this?” Kelly Rowland FLIES up out of the floor and strikes a FIERCE pose. “Michelle, can you handle this?” Michelle pops up, arms flailing and with an expression of a deer caught in the headlights, before remembering “Shit, I’m supposed to look fierce” and attempting to pull it off… She does, a bit. Beyonce does the whole “I don’t think she can handle this” and I laugh at the fact that none of them can see the fact it sounds completely sarcastic… I’m sorry lads, but I actually don’t think Michelle can handle this! Granted, I have a feeling Kelly has been taking lessons on how to be “fierce like Beyonce” because for the first time in my life she is very much on par with Beyonce, Michelle just lacks that fire somewhat, but then she always did. Perhaps Kelly’s success with D. Guetta has made her feel she deserves the stage as much as Beyonce, whatever it is though, it suits her!
“Independent Woman” is, of course amazing! Beyonce’s vocals outshine the other two, the stage is on fire, it’s all pretty amazing! And THEN, OMG DESTINY’S CHILD ARE DOING “SINGLE LADIES” TOGETHER! Beyonce asks “NOW WAIT… Kelly and Michelle, will y’all help me sing this one?” to which Kelly replies “SHO NO BABY”… WTF Kelly? Is that a yes or a no!? They help her sing it anyway, they dance along and it’s all FAIRLY epic! I can not get OVER how fierce Kelly is! The girl is OWNING the stage up there beside Beyonce, Michelle is a little bit stiff, but I want to take it easy on her! There are HUNDREDS of dancers on stage, Beyonce at centre stage, the only one anybody’s eyes are drawn to, it says it all about her. And I hate to say it because I LOVED DC but now I remember why Beyonce went solo, she is quite simply put, better off on her own. The other two add feck all to the mix. Beyonce has star power and a charisma on-stage that even the likes of Gaga, Madonna, Christina and even Britney can only dream of. She’s untouchable.
She ends the show with a tear-jerking rendition of “Halo” and she is revelling in her moment. You can see the joy on her face. She loves this shit. And we love her for it. Go on Beyonce!
The woman is truly amazing! At the Super Bowl Press Conference Beyonce said “This is what I was born to do”… She was right. The performance was fierce, bold, memorable and electric—the best I have ever seen. And ANYBODY that gave out about her singing along to a pre-recorded track at the Inauguration can actually piss right off after this performance. Beyonce can do what she wants, ya hear!?
Apologies for the amount of time I said “fierce” in this post! THERE JUST ARE NO OTHER WORDS!
