Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show: Grade and Twitter Reaction for Beyonce

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterFebruary 3, 2013

The moment non-football fans have all been waiting for finally took place when Beyonce performed live at the Super Bowl.  

While a large portion of viewers tune in for the gridiron action, a lot of individuals are in it for the commercials, halftime show and peripheral party. 

Regardless, every last one of us was entertained by Beyonce, who was sexy, powerful and extremely entertaining. 



Grade: A

Because she received so much vitriol for lip-syncing "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the president's inauguration, Beyonce delivered a live halftime show as she promised. And it was off the hook, chain or any other inanimate object you would like to insert.

First off, a tip of the hat to whoever did her set design, because the visuals were stunning and played well to the fans watching from home.

If we are going to knock points, we have to point out the sound was a tad muffled at times, and of course, there was no Jay-Z. But that is some serious reaching for down-voting what was one of the better halftime shows in recent history.

She brought back the familiar with her initial song of "Crazy in Love" and then delighted fans who doubted that she would bring back her old pals.

Halfway through, we had the Destiny's Child reunion we all were waiting for, with Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland joining Beyonce. The duo was just as delightful as the pop star who headlined the show.

From a stylish wardrobe that had everyone tweeting about her sexy swag to the live performance that hit every last beat we craved, Beyonce killed it.


Twitter Breakdown

Of course, you all have very pointed opinions about what went down. Here are some of the best from the land of Twitter.

Now we ask you fine Super Bowl denizens to sound off on what you thought of Beyonce's Super Bowl halftime show.

As we know, it's easy to deliver a halftime performance that is dull or disjointed. It's rare that we see one so entertaining from start to finish.

Beyonce delivered as promised.
