REVIEW! Beyoncé's Super Bowl halftime show

Beyoncé
She came. She saw. She SANG for real! And she kicked some serious Bootylicious butt. Beyoncé pulled off a great  Pepsi Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome . Hollywood Reporter wondered before the time "Would the sizzling human volcano erupt with 12 minutes of booty-popping, hip-thrusting, hair-flipping hoochie-mama fabulousness? Or did being a wife and mother, an Obama intimate and a Serious Artist mean Queen Bey would tone down the sexual heat and shift into pop-gospel goddess mode? Would hubby Jay-Z make a “Crazy in Love” cameo? And would Destiny’s Child reunite on the Superdome stage?" Yes for all, except on Jay-Z who opted to stay at home. In short, the Bey-boss uncorked a whole mess of molten lava. It was fire, lights, back-to-back solo hits, except with Bootylicious when her former Destiny's Child crew joined her on stage. She started with one of the great pop songs of the 2000s, "Crazy in Love," the track that established her not only as a singing force but also as an adept song-picker whose taste in producers is equalled by her skill at turning their tracks into her own hits. "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)," "End of Time," "Baby Boy" — each melded seamlessly with one another. It was amazing. I was in awe. I thought Madonna did a good job in 2012, but Beyoncé kicked Madge's MDNA ass. Well done Beyoncé!
