God Bless America.
God Bless Football.
God Bless Jay-Z.
And GOD BLESS BEYONCE.
I think we all knew Beyonce was going to kill it, especially after she shut everyone up on Super Bowl Media Day by singing the National Anthem a cappella.
Before the game, I made out a list of songs I wanted to hear during the show, and only two of them made it in. Single Ladies and Halo (I can’t believe she ended with that. More in a moment). However, she proved me wrong, in the sense that I really don’t think that halftime show could’ve gotten much better.
With Beyonce being the president of the world, whether you like to believe it or not, we had no choice but to expect as much badassery as possible. Let’s see, what about Beyonce’s performance would pass as badass?
The cool stage with the fire turning into two faces? Check.
The all girl band, showing the world the power of women in music? Check.
Beyonce with the finger lick after her first song, sending every man and a good number of women into a frenzy? Check.
Beyonce showing us all that even after a baby, she has the greatest hips in the history of forever? Check.
Beyonce bringing out Destiny’s Child and surprising everyone?! Check.
I could sit here for the next few hours and add to this list; however, I’ve gotta get this piece to my editor and I kind of want to watch the second half.
The only critique I’d give her would be that of the last song. Why Halo? Everything about Beyonce is pizzazz, fire, screaming, racing hearts, etc., and she ends with a ballad? Now, I must admit, the blue finger lights in the bleachers swaying back and forth during the song was sweet, but she should’ve thrown that into the middle of the act.
I also was hoping for a little bit more from Beyonce than just a few rifs. I wanted her to saaaaaang. The dancing made up for it. Hell, when you’ve got hips like Beyonce’s, just walking around the stage makes up for.
Those such a miniscule critiques in a halftime show that I don’t think anyone wanted to end.
I give it an A-. I’d honestly rather watch Beyonce for the next 30 minutes then the rest of this football game. Hey…aww c’mon…gimme my man card back – you know you’re thinking the exact same thing!

To hold you over until Beyonce performs tonight, here are a couple of behind the scenes videos of the rehearsals and preparation going into tonight’s halftime show.
She’s looking forward to the performance as much as we are. In the third video – a teaser – she says, “I know this is my legacy.” Beyonce is also pleased that the Super Bowl she’ll be performing at is in the South, close to her hometown of Houston, Texas.
