On to Destiny’s Child reunion featuring Kelly and Michelle popping out onto the stage in a pretty cool move. A few riffs of “Bootylicious,” a few verses of “Independent Women Pt 1. ” and then a few lines of “Single Ladies” and Kelly and Michelle waved bye-bye. We were thinking a little more of Destiny-fied hits like “Say My Name.” We liked Kelly and Michelle’s hair –those weaves were laid and bangs (on Kelly) are shaping up to be the hot 2013 hair trend. “Single Ladies” did end with the aforementioned group of hot female dancers pumping it out but as much as we like the song, it translated better in the original video.
B ended things up with “Halo” – a nice end to the solid showing by Queen B but for the Super Bowl we wished we could have seen a little bit more.
Yes, it’s a 12-minute performance, but there are other songs that might have worked better for the length of time and the stage. “Get Me Bodied” with its funky choreography might have worked in a shortened version. Or next time, if you’re going to do the songs you do with collaborators, we’d love them to be there. Of course, there are no do-overs at the Super Bowl, so Beyoncé will just have to be satisfied with a good, but not great, Super Bowl show. She can always console herself with the fact that she did better than the 49’ers, who were also expected to do a lot more. And thankfully she got it done before the lights literally went out in the Superdome. We know the Beyoncé haters will that somehow figure it was her fault. Chick can’t win.
