Rumor has it that Beyonce's performance was the leading cause for the blackout at last night's Super Bowl game. While that has not been actually confirmed, perhaps it was a culmination of all of the night's performances. Along with Beyonce, Alicia Keys performed what seemed to be the longest the National Anthem with a length of over 2:30 minutes! However, Alicia Keys was not the only "girl on fire". The slender Jennifer Hudson blew the audience away with a beautiful rendition of "America, the Beautiful". Hudson was accompanied by children of the Newtown tragedy, uniting the audience in the stands and the viewers at home to not only remember, but pay tribute to those who have been affected. While yesterday's game had viewer's shouting and chanting, the women's performances stood out.
in the testosterone-fueled football game. Beyonce's halftime performance with Destiny's Child was highly anticipated. Memes took over leading social networking websites such as Facebook with popular phrases like, "I heard there is a football game going on at Beyonce's concert!" There were hardly any statuses that did not mention the powerhouse singer. As we all know, Beyonce had a lot to prove after her lipsyncing scandal at President Obama's presidential inauguration. Well Beyonce left her heart on the stage and had Doritos dropping from people's mouths as jaws were dropped. Today's cover of Daily News says that "Beyonce Sizzles". More like sizzling hot! Beyonce's alter ego, Sasha Fierce, came out in full force as she and the two members of Destiny's Child busted out the dance moves.
Close up shots showed the mother of Blue Ivy donned with a face full of sweat. Well, Beyonce does not sweat, she glistens.
Scott and Todd recounted their thoughts of the Super Bowl and they made note to mention that they were absolutely floored by the performances. Todd said that it was "nice to see someone who isn't 70. Beyonce is a pop culture act."
Scott said that this was one of the most eventful Super Bowls he could remember.
It's now time to project into next year's Super Bowl, which will take place at the Metlife Stadium in New Jersey. Scott, Todd and the rest of the gang are pondering who will be the next half-time performer. Monk interjected and mentioned that next year is the "10 year anniversary of the nipple gate so maybe Justin Timberlake will return." Whoever the performer is will have huge shoes, or heels, to fill!
