Wait. Before we even begin you need to watch/rewatch:
She gave us a nice little taste of “Love on Top” before STOMP STRUTTING like no other. Like seriously, she got her Naomi Campbell on so much I’m pretty sure there are three maids in the Campbell household suffering from head injuries via cellphone. I want to walk like that always.
Beyonce was a powerhouse of a performance. Before half time I was pretty much falling asleep (I think I’m sick, don’t judge me) but I felt like I had been infused with life during her show. Like physical reaction to Beyonce. Anyone else? That shit cray (ain’t it, absent Jay?).
THEN. It started happening. We began to hear that Stevie Nicks’ sample we’ve all come to love so much and our brain started singing “Kelly, can you handle this?” after years of brainwash and training. Then, as if by magic, KELLY APPEARED. She is the Beetle Juice of Beyonce play things.
AND THEN MICHELLE. WHO DIDN’T FALL, bless her.
They did a little less of “Bootylicious” than I would have liked, but it was Queen Bey’s moment, not Destiny’s Child so moving on. They did some “Independent Women Part 2″ (Part 1 can suck it) and said “good morning” to Charlie (even thought it is clearly night. Charlie WILL ACCEPT WHATEVER TIME OF DAY BEYONCE TELLS HIM IT IS).
Beyonce, humanitarian that she is, asked if Kelly and Michelle would stick around to help her a little with “Single Ladies.” Kelly said “sho nuff.” Michelle stumbled to get in position.
The three sisters NAILED “Single Ladies” and Beyonce waved both hands to show that actually she’s married now so this song doesn’t apply. Ok, WE GET IT BEYONCE LIFE IS PERFECT, MICHELLE IS TOTALLY STANDING RIGHT THERE.
Side note, go back and watch the “Single Ladies” part again and pay close attention to Michelle. Kelly is killing the choreography like it was created for her. Michelle is like that girl in dance school who always danced behind you so she could just follow along. Clearly did not grow up in the Knowles family
training facility household.
Kelly and Michelle finished with Beyonce’s bidding so she shooed them away to continue with her show. She KILLED IT with “End of Time” and then turned “Halo” into a headbanger. Why? Because she’s Beyonce and from now on you will never question another thing that she ever does.
And then she blew the power in the Super Dome that delayed the game for 35 minutes (and made a good point for me to go to sleep). Phenom.
I overheard this morning some fool talking about how he would have MUCH preferred Taylor Swift doing the show. I wanted to ask if he was an idiot but it was too cold. We had MULTIPLE BEYONCES. How could Swifty even compete with that?
