Beyonce’s Super Bowl halftime performance was so hot she caused a power surge that knocked out half the lights in the Superdome!
Okay, I’m kidding. But the lights did go out for about 30 minutes at the start of the 3rd quarter of the Super Bowl in New Orleans. With the Baltimore Ravens leading the hapless San Francisco 49ers 21-6, Jacoby Jones of the Ravens returned a kickoff for 109 yards and a touchdown to give the Ravens a 27-6 lead over the 49ers. That’s when the lights went out. The stadium was still buzzing from Beyonce’s halftime performance that left everyone gasping for more!
Watch the performance after the break!
By definition, a halftime performance is a show-stopper just because the game’s on hold, but Beyonce’s turn at Super Bowl XLVII took that up a notch. Starting with “Crazy in Love,” the recent survivor of the inauguration lip-sync frenzy charged through a red-hot medley made even hotter by her outfit. Indeed, Beyonce even risked a wardrobe malfunction by ripping off part of her leather-and-lingerie number before getting into her real groove. As rumored, former Destiny’s Child mates Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland joined Beyonce for a brief (very brief) reunion during the 12-minute spectacular, which left pretty much everyone needing a cold shower. Lip what?
