On Sunday, homes across America flooded with fans waiting to watch their teams play a highly anticipated football game and the celebrated halftime show. The Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans was home to Super Bowl XLVII.
According to BeyoncÃ© Knowles' website, she announced on Oct. 16, 2012 that she would be headlining the Super Bowl 2013 halftime show, and she certainly delivered.
From the array of pyrotechnics to the unique images portrayed on stage, BeyoncÃ©'s performance was a job well-done.
Fans from the stands of the Superdome opened the performance by running out onto the field to see the diva perform.
She opened with her chart topping song "Love on Top," which she sang live at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, and according to Billboard's Hot 100 chart, was number one for several weeks in a row.
Knowles followed up with another of her number one singles, "Crazy in Love," which was featured on her album "Dangerously in Love" that was released in 2003. She also performed her signature dance from the music video.
It seemed that Knowles was enjoying her performance just as much as the fans were. After singing "Crazy in Love," Knowles performed a small scat while her female lead guitarist performed a solo at center stage, with pyrotechnics at each end of her guitar.
The star also performed "Baby Boy," yet another one of her hit songs featuring Sean Paul.
Duplicate images of BeyoncÃ© appeared on stage while she was performing, which made for a very creative backdrop.
All the while, Knowles interacted with the crowd and performed heavy choreography.
Despite BeyoncÃ©'s knockout set, the highlight of the halftime show had to be Destiny's Child onstage reunion. The trio has not performed together since their show in Atlanta, Georgia at the Phillips Arena in 2005.
Knowles was eager to perform with the trio and updated fans by using Instagram and Twitter to post a quick picture of them holding hands and jumping after their performance.
Although there was speculation of lip-syncing during BeyoncÃ©'s star spangled banner performance at the recent Presidential Inauguration, there is no reason to believe she did the same at the half time show.
"I don't think she was lip-syncing," said Mallory Coyman, a junior. "I would say BeyoncÃ©'s performance was good, it wasn't horrible, but it wasn't the best I've seen. However, I enjoyed seeing Destiny's Child reuniting on stage for a song or two."
