Beyoncé Performs At Pepsi Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show [Video]

Kid Fury February 3, 2013 Memoirs of a Creole 108 Comments

After planning and rehearsing her perfect posterior off, Beyoncé showed out during tonight’s Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show. Mama Bey marched through a fiery stage (which resembled two profiles of her face) and performed 13-minutes worth of hits, including “End Of Time,” “Crazy In Love” and “Halo.”

Fellow Destiny’s Child members, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, confirmed the rumors and joined Beyoncé on stage for “Bootylicious,” “Independent Woman” and they even performed “Single Ladies” as a group. I mean, I sprouted a uterus only for it to shatter and run down my leg.

The lights were dazzling, the dancers were twirling and the hair was flawless. My spirit is currently on the Long Island Railroad searching for the meaning of life. You can catch video of Beyoncé’s killer performance below.

    • The702Diva

      Vince Lombardi (as in who the Super Bowl Trophy is named after), one of his speeches to the New York Jets, whom he coached.

  • Earthshaker1217

    KELENDRIA!!! She popped onto the stage like she was ready to show these people!!!

    • Frostbiteme

       Didn’t she!!! I was so proud of her. She held her own which is damn near impossible next to King Bey lol

    • Gullible

      Michelle was not present for rehearsals. .. and that’s all I’m going to say on that.

      • lali

        In her defense, it’s hard to jiggle like the others w/chicken skin. But I did notice her thighs are getting slightly bigger. [claps for her...for effort] Bey killed Live singing. LOOOOOOVE Her.

        • Gullible

          Michelle looks fragile and scared. . At all times. She hasn’t entertained me since her drop on 106andPark.

          • TheSwordQueenBeySlayedUsWith

            Her drop on 106?? I’m gonna need for you to GTFOH….now!!
            It was and still is funny as hell!!

        • Bambi’s Gums

          Also in Chelle’s defense she’s been singing Gospel so maybe her heart just wasn’t in it .. when she is performing Gospel she’s more confident and in her element in my humble opinion

      • Tamar’s Missing Skin Pigment

        michelle just needs to go take her vitamins and rest her bones. im so over her. im not sure why they chose her. some things arent to be understood though. lawwd. she just makes me… ugh… im with Keyshia on that one. 

    • Bey’s Nails

       Sho did!! i replayed her jump like 20 times!! a TRUE PRO! Michelle looked like the jump caught her off guard but she came back though

    • gabicaligirl

      That’s my gurl. You know shit is real when people say your full name. Yaaasss, Ms. Rowland! Werk, indeed.

      • lives for ABC Scandal

         Still screaming like something is wrong with me, replayed that epic jump 100x over. Ms.K Rowland DID NOT COME TO PLAY with these people & krushcup oh’ cole slaw missed Fury’s video about shade.

  • cuntbrigade

    Yaaas Mother Lawd Beysus Godess of all flawless perfection had wigs, weaves and edges applied to her profiles’ heads flowing in victory. Just the way the hair flowed on vehement scalps drained all the energy in that bitch. Any questions?

  • Mzrgrs

    Beyonce was out there stuntin’ whilst the lessors were sitting in and hating it.

  • Sunshine

    Side note: I sincerely feel sorry for every threat, shade filled comment & whatever else the Hive gave/gives Ms. Cole. But she did open that door sooo…,

    • Frostbiteme

      Chile what an idiot. How can you shade someone as sweet and personable as Michelle? I’m already scared for her when the beehive gets word.

      • Gullible

        I just googled that… I died. But this comment right here is making me feel bad. .. kinda.
        Keyshia Cole is truly mad at her own career. She would live to be in Michelle’s position.

        Lmfao.. she’s right about Michelle always fucking up the groove though..

    • Sammi

      I feel sorry for her too.. But she should have never tapped on the BeyHive. #YouwillBeyStung

    • Lali

      But we sure had fun though. :D Plus if you listen closer Michelle sang better than Keyshia generally does. It’s just that the mics were low & thats because we all know who we came to see….QUEEN BEY!

      • Entertainemeh

        LMAO @ “we sure had fun though” I am guessing you was part of the hive giving Keyshia hell last night? *tears*

    • Earthshaker1217

      Hope she ain’t allergic to bee stings.

  • M.J.

    Let’s hear it for Bey, Kelly, Michelle, Alicia, and JHud. 5 Black women taking over one of sports’ biggest events and nights. 

    • Doyenne Eleganza Saint-Augusti

       I couldn’t stand all that hollering from Alicia but I live for this comment.

      • Shaina

        Agreed and me, to0

  • Sherae Renee

    I was slayed and then given my life back.

  • jajay22


    ALL the haters and basic broads, that are not even worth mentioning, have to #DEAL!!!!

  • BlairWaldorf2013

    GIRL….Let me TELL YOU SOMETHING….Bey came through and said I shall take EVERY hair from your head, arms, side-burns, pubic area, dogs, cats, and ANY Future Children you even PLAN on having.

    Beyonce real names is Rumpelstiltskin…Cause she is taking ALL the girls HOPES & DREAMS & FIRST BORNS. And she has the girls spinning her GOLDEN WEAVES for fun.

    I CAN’T……

    • Yep It’s Kwanzaa

      NOT THE FIRST BORNS ..asdfghjkl LIFE!

    • Vivalamel174

      lmfaooooo. I can’t even process what the fuck you’ve just written. I think you’ve just summarized the scriptures of beyonce. i need my inhaler…

    • shinyblackfiamond

      This might be one of the replies in the history of blogging.

    • Nellz

      This post is everything right now!!!!!!

      HAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! You did not just say first born.

    • lives for ABC Scandal

       *screaming* i cannot take this. at all lmboooo

  • Sweet Peach

    Her hair was layed like life and happiness and I just don’t know how to feel right now

  • Trini Trent’s Mango Tree

    I get a perverse pleasure out of knowing every naysayer was glued to the TV just wishing, hoping, and praying for something to hate on. I’m convinced they say shit on purpose just to get the hive to attack them so they can play victim. They’re so damn hilarious. She killed this shit. I LOVE how she’s classy enough to pay her dues and give her girls some shine.

    • Dee

      Your name……

      I cannot do this tonight!

  • Gullible

    I luhved it!

  • Apalacian

    Serving face!!!

  • Ddttrs87

    Now that right there… She shut that muthafucka down so hard it took the stadium 30 minutes to recover. Could your fave?


    • Entertainemeh

      You betta say that! And people that are tired of seeing Bey do her old choreography, I don’t remember people getting tired of seeing Tina Turner do “hail mary” dance or MJ do the moonwalk. Mama got so many dances & she is trying to please her old & new fans. AND.YOU.WILL.DEAL!

      • CaramelHottie

        Girl you beat me to it cause I damn sure was gon mention the Tina Turner thing. People just love to find something to nit pic about cause the King slays their fav! 

      • Beyoncelover56

        Proud mary girl lol

        • Entertainemeh

           lmao! thanks girl

        • Girl, dont.

           Primary lol

  • KoKoNOChanel

    Mother Bey slayed. Auntie Kelly murdered. And Michelle just gave the crowd butterfly kisses i was not here for here at all.

    • Beyoncesbigtoe

      *calls pastor*

  • Daisukey

    Janet had a nip slipM.I.A showed the middle finger
    BEYONCE caused a blackout

    • Bey’s Nails

       Maaan then JayZ tweeted “Lights out!!! Any questions??” I. HOLLERED.

  • Michelle’s Mic

    As much as I wanna go in on how Bey did good, which she did. I just wanna take time & give Kelly Rowland her props!!! Mama’s body IS NOT to be played with. When it was time to do “Single Ladies” you could SEE how bad Kelly wanted to slay that choreo but poor Michelle wouldn’t be able to catch up & God forbid she outshines Bey on her OWN song! Sorry, but the show was alright. She [Beyonce] did a few change-ups with the choreo. The punks who choreograph her shit had been reading the blogs & remembered how the kids kept slaying Bey for her same ole dance moves. The intro was everything, though. I’m not even a FAN of Kelly like that but they couldn’t STOP her from looking as good. SMH Michelle turned “Single Ladies” into a country-folk song the way she was grooving while singing. Her mic wasn’t all the way up…Kelly’s was going in and out as well. But her body alone slayed me. I’m not even going to hate. Bey did her thing BUT that doesn’t take away from the fact that she didn’t do A DAMN thing different. Call me late, tired, or whatever. I’ve been watching Beyonce since I was 8 mothafucking years OLD. I’ve seen ALL the bitch can do & if she CAN do something new…she didn’t pick tonight to showcase it!!! Won’t be attending the Tour. You seen one Bey performance…you seen ‘em all. 

    • Gullible

      I feel you. Sadly. But I feel you.

    • Bambi’s Gums

      Your name. I CANT!! *Faints*

    • Realtalk

      “Michelle turned ‘Single Ladies’ into a country-folk song” — did you have to?  And send somebody over here to pick me up off this damned floor!!!!

    • METRAA

      I agree 100%. I think Bey needs to make some changes, tired of the same ‘ol same ‘ol. She played it very safe IMO.

    • Beyoncelover56

      Not even going to hate or say anything bad. I completely agree with you. Kelly killed it, beyonce was beyonce( take that how ever you want to) michelle was there.

    • Welp

       8???!! How old are you:( I feel old as dust.

    • Tjfdragon

      I feel the same way..  GOOD performance not great. She danced way more than she sang. Plus, it was obvious Beyonce was the only one with a hot mic, Kelly’s & Michelle’s were defintitely turned way down. Obvious by the thumps heard on Beyonce’s mic but not the other two girls when they danced.

    • Great

      I feel the same exact way…it was just typical beyonce…nice stage,oiled skin,same style hair from all her past performances. 

  • CaramelHottie

    This performance was flawless. From hair, to wardrobe, to vocals, to the set, ugh I’m still in awe! Auntie Kellz and Michelle BOTH did good. I really dont see why people always find the need to bash her. Obviously Bey and Matthew thought she was good enough to be a member and to me that means a lot. Bey too much of a perfectionist to have sub par people around her lol 

    S/N.. Fury I need a video from you on the performance and Keyshia Cole’s distasteful ass! Pleaseee lol 

    • Frankie’s Daughter

      The Beehive may temporarily call for a Moratorium for shading Keri Hilson to focus all efforts on shading and reading Neffie’s Sister

    When she duttywined, i screamed and skeeted at the same damn tie. I kid you not.

    • Scarlett O’HellNawl

       OMG that Dutty Dutty Wiiiiiiine!!!! I died, came back, died again, and Jesus was lookin at me like “gurl make up yo MIND!”

  • Yep It’s Kwanzaa

    Black women graced the stage of this year’s Superbowl and it’s Black History Month….we win. Kelly has been eating her cornbread and collard greens and I’m here for it. I really wish Michelle’s mic wasn’t set on low but she did her best.

    Keyshia girl you thought coming for Michelle wasn’t going to do anything and that didn’t pan out to well now did it…HA SUFFER!

    • Entertainemeh

       LMAO @ ha suffer! did you get that from “Bye Bye Birdie” ?!?!?!

      • Yep It’s Kwanzaa

           Ahhhhhh! Love it even more!!

  • PAZ20

    Michelle might not have the strongest voice, or the best dance moves, but unlike Keyshia, I bet she knows who her father is. 

    • Sorryformeanspiritedclowns

      I’m sorry but that was truly un-called for.  That’s on her mother; not her.  Grow up.

      • Paz20

        My apologies, I must of hit a nerve. You probably don’t know who your father is either. My point is Keyshia perpetuates a culture I have no respect for and that overshines her talent. This is besides her mothers antics. Her comment just further demonstrated her lack of class.

        • Welp

           Girl you aint got to explain. I thought it was funny as fuck.

        • ZJ

          I’m not even mad at Keyshia. She’s entitled to her opinion. But since her career has been circling the drain for the past few years, she had to know her comment was going to sound like sour grapes. Anyhoo, I thought there’d be a general post about the Super Bowl so we could discuss Jennifer Hudson’s tragic choice in wig. 

    • Entertainemeh

      Damn, I laughed hard as hell, then @1f95cecd41c5238da9e2b30a525b6e46:disquss’ comment made me feel judged like a muthafugga and then your explanation made me feel justified to laugh again. It was such a shady comment lol.

  • Bey’s Nails

    Keyshia Cole….hope you ready for BeyStings cuz they comin *Patti Lahelle voice*

     Fury, I can only imagine how u felt being at a BEY concert LIVE. I was standin up, dancin and gettin my life watchin her on TV!! WHEW!!

  • Sigh…

    Oh, Beyonce…

    The vehement, “excuse me, bitch???” with which Mrs. Carter carried her ass around that stage tonight was frightening. She performed tonight like SOMEBODY done pissed her off…like she got a grudge for Lucifer and the Boatman both. I mean, I felt attacked and gratified at the same time.

    It’s Beyonce season, and I. Am. Here.

  • jefferson

    Yall shade michelle on daily, why is it a issue when keyshia said something?

    • Bambi’s Gums

      It just seems like a bad business deal to shade a fellow colleague especially in front of millions .. She is pure T-Rash! && we all know Michelle was the black sheep in the group but that’s why we lovee her!

    • brandonjaye

      Because Destiny’s Child >>> Frankie’s Child.

      • aw shit…dat is my jam

        Go away and never come back…I MEAN NOW!!

    • Chile Boo

      I love a good read, but the comments this Keyshia person tweeted were beyond shade. It was just crass and classless.


      Speaking of ugly, Keyshia may be pretty on the outside, but jealously is soooo unattractive and such a weak emotion. She is clearly just mad that she will NEVER perform at a Super Bowl. She’d be lucky to perform at a local bowling tournament. AND THAT’S SHADE.

      • Yep It’s Kwanzaa

         Keylolo can’t even get a spot at The Bubble Bowl.

        • Chile Boo

          Not SpongeBob! asdfghjklasdfghjkl;!

      • RamenNoodles

        Right, I sensed anger all through that tweet. 

    • Entertainemeh

      At first I didn’t understand why Key was getting hell, but then I saw her tweets. Not ONE, but THREE calling Michelle all kinds of bitches and telling her if she don’t like it, then “run up.” To me that is beyond hating, that’s insane. AND the bish was doing it from home…. to a person on stage….. at the superbowl. Does that not sound like a good reason for her to get a verbal ass whooping? That bish deserved every sting she got from the beehive.

  • Doyenne Eleganza Saint-Augusti

    That performance made me pregnant and I’m naming my first born Giselle.

    That’s all I have to say about it.

    • Sunshine

      Can I tell you I really wanted to be one of the ones slapped in creole goodness by that woman’s hair? I probably would’ve felt the virgin delight of each & every strand donated to that weave.

  • Nellz

    It was amazing!!!! Once again Beyonce delivers and gives me life!!!!

  • Great

    I can’t even lie beyonce did her thing ! I hope that album shines through.

  • Chile Boo

    Who is this Keyshia Cole person everyone keeps talking about? I never heard of her.

  • peppermint

    Can I just say that regardless of not being a big fan of Beyonce (WAIT DON’T STONE ME!) that woman has the work ethic of a professional and can sang and dance her ass off like nobody’s business. That crap about her not singing live is now dusted and passed. Nice to now that she is performing on a level above and beyond. Much, much better than some bitches who wear meat dresses and insult their assistants *side eye*. Can’t say I have ever heard anyone complain about Beyonce. Good for her, she has earned her place in the sun.

    • CaramelHottie

      Lol, Don’t shade GaGa! When it comes to performing her and Bey are the only bitches doing it. 

    • The702Diva

      Don’t shade my Lady Gaga, she is a beast in her own right!!

      • peppermint

        I don’t rightly know about her… she acting a fool calling her former assistant/best friend a hoodrat. I can’t with that. That’s a pretty specific insult coming from a chick raised on the Upper East Side of New York City in a duplex with parents who have money. What the hell does that mean to her?

        Sorry, it was the hood rat that got me!

  • Free86da

    Its gon be alot of ppl on youtube tryna figure out remedies to grow their edges back cuz momma snatched them from the roots last night! YASSSSS

  • Pepper Anne

    Beyonce the Edge Slayer!!! Smh she turned that shit all the way out. Keri, Ciara, even you Rih Rih, prepare to find your edges on the side of the milk carton with the question “Have you seen me?” above. Your edges have been officially snatched!! 

  • sosoblessed

    This performance had me doing the Fred Sanford (grabbing my chest)! Check out Ultimate Female Cleaner (douche) on YouTube and Facebook 

  • Leffrot formally known Sassy24

    The performance was ok, nothing special to me.

  • Kayy

    Keyshia Cole is so stupid for that comment. She thought her career was goin downhill, well she just ended it now. & I love Michelle’s response to Keyshia’s tweet ” I’m Destiny’s Child, & you are Frankie’s Child..You do the math”. I HOLLLEREDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD! At the end of the day, Bey ripped off wigs & hair strands.

    • Yep It’s Kwanzaa

      She didn’t actually tweet that if you go to her page she has too much class for that as shady and truthful as it was lol. Michelle probably don’t even acknowledge Keyshia’s existence.

  • RamenNoodles

    Yoooo Kelly looked so good and thick. Like what the hell has she been doing? Bey’s intro was fucking everything. I wonder if she’s gonna use the stage production for the Mrs. Carter tour. And Mrs. Cole tried it, I never laughed so hard in my life, her mentions was fucked up. The nerve of her to make a comment like that when she in the same lane as Michelle. Plus Michelle is a better vocalist than her. I low-key wanted Michelle to @ her saying “But I’m at the Superbowl tho” 

  • BlairWaldorf2013

    And ONE LAST THING….For Ms. Kelly in the words of Mike Lowrey (Bad Boys), “NOW THAT’S HOW YOU PERFORM, From NOW on YOU PERFORM JUST LIKE THAT”

  • Lace Frontin Minaj

    poor Neffie’s sister…she might as well delete her twitter account and move to Alaska….smh

  • Tamar’s Missing Skin Pigment

    beyonSLAY came with her snatching tools ready. she sang like hell! 

    but did yall get into that vicious pussy popping she did? yes lawwd! my bitch popped for CHRIST! 

  • Beyoncesbigtoe

    Anyone who says the performance was nothing special does not have an eye for the incredible DETAIL that went into this performance. look at the opening, the bebe moment in crazy in love + the new choreo, the tweaks in the DC harmonies, and the way she SLAYED that first verse in halo. This performance highlights her moments in her career, and you can see lots of subtle hints and clues in to what B thinks they are. 

    In the words of Miss Solange:
    “No. One. Better.”
