Queen Bey’s powerhouse halftime performance, sponsored by Pepsi at Super Bowl XLVII on Feb. 3 took Twitter by storm! Between celebrities like Demi Lovato and Michelle Obama tweeting their praises to fans at home raving about the show, it’s clear that Beyoncé was the main attraction of the day!
When Beyoncé stepped on a stage made up to resemble the outline of her face, it was clear that Super Bowl XLVII at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, LA on Feb. 3 was less about the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens, and more about the pop diva! If the stir she caused on Twitter is any indication, her performance, complete with Destiny’s Child reunion, was the main draw for many viewers.
Demi Lovato made it very clear she didn’t care about the outcome of the game, as she tweeted, “Y’all can keep watching the game but I think it’s safe to say Beyonce just won the Super Bowl.”
First Lady Michelle Obama tweeted her praise for the “Single Ladies” singer, writing, “Watching the #SuperBowl with family & friends. @Beyonce was phenomenal! I am so proud of her! -mo”
Kim Kardashian had Beyonce fever too, tweeting, “OMG Beyonce killed it!!! And when Destiny’s Child came out…that made my life!
Alicia Keys, who had her own Super Bowl moment as she performed the National Anthem, tweeted, “3 sista’s at the superbowl! ;-) Me, @beyonce & @iamjhud ! Cheers!! What an unforgettable day!! #SB47″
Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson joked about the game itself, “The opener & closer to the amazing Beyonce concert tonight was kinda boring. Not much singing. Just a lot of running around & falling down.”
Beyoncé’s Fan Praise
Fans at home had more of a mixed reaction. Some loved the performance, while others weren’t impressed.
Morgan Dodds tweeted, “Beyoncé is hands down one of the best perfomers that has ever lived!!”
Kirk Herbstreit wrote, “Beyonce absolutely killed it..to all of you doubting her ability from the inauguration performance-Im quite certain that was for you! Mercy!”
Beyoncé’s Viewer Hate
Others weren’t such fans.
Keemy Khalifa wrote, “Beyonce got paid $40mil for a 10 minute performance..meanwhile in Africa..”
Sid Mallya, while in need of a spell check, tweeted, “So apparently the lights failed because Beyonce’s lip sink machine used up all the power haha….”
