Beyoncé Delivers At Super Bowl Halftime Show

Beyoncé  brought some female spirit to the football stage in a dance-heavy, 13-minute performance at the Super Bowl.

She sang live, too, with her background singers helping as the pop star danced around the stage.

She emerged onstage singing some of “Love on Top,” transitioning to her hit “Crazy In Love” in an all-black ensemble. She ripped off part of her shirt and skirt as she danced hard with background dancers doing the same.

Her Destiny’s Child band mates joined her for their hits “Bootylicious” and “Independent Woman,” but Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams were barely heard. They also jumped in for some of “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It),” where Beyoncé‘s voice got better.

She sounded best on “Halo,” which she belted on bended knee.
