1st - NYC
Thanks Yardie! Say Thanks, before taking positions, people!
Thanks yardie from Dakar, Senegal:) U are simply the best
Bey killed it! Kelly & Michelle also looked gooooooood!
too bad she shut the lights off
Lackluster.. Energy wise it was fire, other than that just plain boring and forgetable!
Turn on the lights in here baby! I'm looking for her! LMAO! BEYONCE KILLED THIS! She looked and sounded amazing! So glad to see the DC reunion! They looked great too! I swear Kelly and Beyonce were made for each other! Same pretty faces, and same thick legs! Michelle looked a little awkward...as usual
Thank you for posting
Thanks From Venezuela!
I'm sooo over this girl. she did not impress me one bit...big yawn.
YAWNNN, all Beyonce did was put all her past performances in one moment. Dont get me wrong im a beyonce fan but she wasnt original, if you look at any of her previous tv appearances or concerts you will see its the same stuff. Madonna nailed it, it was original. Only part worth speaking about was Destiny Child moment and the flames. I expected more! People feed into her way too much now. I wish Rhianna did it!
WERK HUNTY!!! She DID that! Thanks for posting this Yardie, I missed it, but thanks to you I got to catch it. You ROCK!
I love BEY but she needs new material I have seen her do these same routines time and time again. It was nice to see Kelly and Michelle perform BUT am i the only one that though they're mics were low...
EXCELLENT...SHE NEEDS NOTHING MORE AND WAS SIMPKY AMAZING. FULL STOP!!,
Hey, person who said "Rihanna" should've done it, I really would like to know why you think she would've been a valuable option to perform. No hate, I would really want to have a candid discussion as to why you think that. I personally don't think she has the endurance to last more than 4 minutes without loosing her breath, thus leading to a very pitchy performance especially with a fast paced song which is not her strong suit, at all.
Well when i said Rihanna (sorry correction for that Rhianna spelling)i just think she's fresher in terms of creativity. There's a certain wow factor. And i think she could last the duration of the allowed time. I mean i think every singer has that potential since they do it on tours day in day out for numerous weeks. If you look at Rihanna's previous songs and compare the same songs she has performed in the same week, dont you think they are slightly different? Ok if not Rihanna but anybody else even Jay Z would of added some originality in the creative department. Its true someone here said routines wouldnt be the same without the signature moves but why do remix's of tracks then or put in a new style like dubstep etc into a segment of the track. Everyone knows the original moves and yes it doesnt hurt to put a couple of those thrown in. But an entire performance where you just have to youtube her previous performances and its all the same stuff. Hair flicking, hip dipping, her vocals gymnastics. To be honest i think even JayZ outshines her. Look at every performance of Beyonce with her female guitarist, how she gets up close only this time they added fireworks on the guitar. WOWWWW. I didnt mean to just pick out Rihanna but any singer perhaps not the vocal range but definitely the creativity. Its the Superbowl, i doubt she will do it again so why the put in all that energy and time into something she does all the time. Youtube Rihanna singing Diamonds on Xfactor UK in the rain performance and see if she recreated that on anyother show?
Beyonce needs to hit the dryer...cuz she washed!!! I agree Rihanna would have done a waayyyy better job, she's new, young and popular. Other then the group coming out it was sooooooo boring. Beyonce fans need to stop gassing her up and realize that shes a hair tossing BORE.
Ok. I hear you. But speaking as someone who has watched her performances countless times over the years, I believe her performance was not the same at all. It was similar, yes, because of the hair flipping and some choreography, but not the same. If she did none of those things she would not be who she is as a performer, such has Michael performing with no crotch grab or kick, or Whitney with no runs. I believe you were looking for a storyline with this performance. But I believe that's nothing more than a gimmick. She is performer, which includes singing live and dancing like she's not. That was a performance and I would pay to see that again. (indirect plug for upcoming concert lol)I saw that performance and that it was probably her best to date. But that doesn't say much to me. It was her BEST and not one of the bests. If you want to talk about performances with water, Youtube P!nk- "Glitter in the air", now that, in my opinion, was one of the bests.This is the last comment I'm going to leave because I HATE defending people, especially famous ones. Don't want to change your mind, just give you another perspective. I am someone that respects greatness, not something created just to be memorable, as anything could earn that title. I, however, will remember this because it was GREAT, not just for the sake of just being memorable.
To those complaining that Beyonce used the same routines I think its not that they used the same routines out of lack of creativity but the routines are just as signature as the song. It wouldve been strange to me if she didnt do dances that went along with the songs. Like madonna doing vogue but no vogueing...odd or Michael doing Thriller but no Thriller dance. The only disappointment for me was there was no new song which would've given us a fresh routine.
Plz remember what the super bowl half time is...its a family game...the players work so hard all year to get here and there chrildren are here aswell..half time is spost to be a fun show I love beyonce and her dancing but I do think Super bowl is the wrong place for that kind of dancing
Have you ever seen Beyonce befor. Please stop with the bull.
LOL please stop. just stop. #smh
Beyonce Wrecked that shit Period! Dammm Mama
I totally agree with a lot of the comments here, beyonce killed it, her energy was on point and so were her vocals... but i cant deal with the same routines, if you youtube her performances she never changes them, the fire and fireworks took over the show and what she lacked in staging in comparison to Madonna she made up in her vocals and energy because all beyonce really needs is a mic and a light, but production wise Madonna destroyed it her performance was EPIC and unforgettable although the lip synching was beyond poor... Madonna i think gets this one for me...if Beyonce added new moves or something she may have just won this one for me.
I agree it was same ol' however if Bey did new songs people will be complaining that she's trying to steal the spotlight from the game itself. Can she win with anything she does? It was great to see Kelly and Michelle, although i expected them to be on a lil longer, but hey!
Bey clowned to all of the haters how many half-times have been this on point. Wow I can not believe people who don't perform, have so much to say. Bey did exactly what should have been done at half time "her most popular songs". She paid straight homage to what built her career. Also the dances were just as popular as the songs. Please get over it. Bey just showed everybody how to perform and sing. Also the person who compared RiRi....one thing....she can't dance and sing like Bey...she needs more creativity because RiRi's actual talent is lacking...so yes she needs more lights more stage changes more dancers because her voice is never enough. meow meow!
Typical delusional Bey stan. Her reign is over. Rihanna's has been more popular for awhile now. Also like Bey(whose voice is not that great to start with and whose voice is failing her now like MC) Rihanna is getting better with age and practice. Her vocal and dancing growth is evident. Say otherwise and you're a liar or hater. RiRi is also only what 24? Already has equal the success and not in her prime yet. Beyonce didn't go solo till 22! Rihanna is so far ahead. AND she's from the islands!Rihanna would have shitted all over that stage and wouldn't even had had to dance. She's different and doesn't do the same show for a decade straight. Her music catalogue is vast and different. She takes chances. Beyonce paid homage to what built her career? Do you mean being in a group and singing all the songs yourself? Hogging the limelight? Or being in a group/solo and stealing songs and taking the writing credit? OR do you mean singing the only songs in her music catalogue that aren't an embarrassment? Seems to be all of the above. Those are the only songs she could have sang! I mean you really think she would have sung a classic like Bug A BOO? Or Bills, Bills, Bills? LMAO! How many hits does Rihanna have that she can sing until she's 90? Like her whole music discography! LOL! That Rihanna Reign just won't let up! Rihanna has a NAVY! What the fuck is a beyhive? All Beyonce has is angry gay male fans and hoodrats. Even Madonnas old ass had a better show.
Wow really, last time I checked most of Rihanna's songs are laced with filth and pure sex, I am pretty sure a 90 year old woman would never sing those songs. LOL also just a bit of knowledge Rihanna does not write any of her songs. As far as pure artistry Beyonce is better. Rihanna is not producing, writing or effectively singing her own "hits". The mere fact that you have to point out growth in singing and dancing means that it is not on par with what we call superstardom. Rihanna is just another product that was highly publicized and the masses fell for it just like Britney Spears. However, just as you said Beyonce has old gay males, most of Rihanna's fans are the younger versions of those same males. Old Queens come with alittle more class and style and if the kids knew better they would listen hunty. Class says more than you know. I can bet that more people will be singing Dangerously in Love than Umbrella in the ten years. Only time will tell. Theses young zealots believe nothing until they are embarrassed. Young one please do us all a favor, and lay off the profanity..it makes you look sloppy and full of animosity girl.
Delusional! Beyonce has never ever produced or written anything! Which is why she has been successfully sued for almost half her musical catalogue. GTFO! Rihanna has fans across every spectrum. Gay males love her and so do straight males. She makes fire music. We Found Love alone>>>anything Beyonce has ever recorded. ever. Everyone has to grow dummy. Youtube Beyonce's old performances she was garbage! I doubt it because people have already forgotten DIL and Umbrella is still played. Rihanna is so mainstream with the white population. The only song white people know by Beyonce is Single Ladies(which once again was a stolen concept)! LMAO! You make it too easy. You sound delusional, crazed and obsessed. You can't even disbute anything I said! LOL! Rihanna at 24=equal Beyonces success and just getting bigger and better. I don't like either, just stating facts. Rihanna Navy don't lie. Even at 16 Rihanna never recorded such stupid records Beyonce was singing at 19/20. Embarrassing. She didn't even sing all of Bootylicious because the song is so stupid. Grow up old hag and stop trying to leech onto your youth. Bouncy is done. New Queen is on the seen and what profanity? This is the internet. Get over it.
Hello. I just wanted to say why are you on Beyonces post if you dislike her so much? Why even bother? It really amazes me. You're justmaking Rihanna stans look bad :/
I see that you think Rihanna is so much better than Beyonce so here's a question...Do you think Rihanna is truelly talented artist and better singer than Beyonce or just lucky? Be wise ;) LOL
MAHARABA from Paris
I think that Beyonce is so fake...she is full of herself...on top of all of that she can barely speak properly...I don't know why people go off on Beyonce, like she is really amazing...she is not!!...this performance was okayIt was never Destiny"s Child...it was Beyonce and company...and she really showed it lastnight...she brought Kelly and Michelle on and then dismissed them like they were nothing...she should have had them close of her boring ass performance with her...she is too ridiculous!!!!
I agree with you & she made them sing Single Ladies -____-. Now that Kelly has matured she can give Beyonce some competition. I think Beyonce's arrogance showed, she just covers it up with fluff. I find it hard to believe her sweetness.
People that have commented on this video and mentioned Rihanna in the same sentence, kill yourself, now, please. And to those who say Beyonce does the same thing over and over again, do the same, please.
Lol, get off her c*ck!!! the truth hurts though doesn't it. And tell Bey to stop "trying" to speak patois and doing the dutty wine in 2013! hahahahaha shes so wack hahahahahaaaaa
As a Beyonce fan who watched the game with non Beyonce fans, I will say we were all amazed by the performance. She sang flawlessly and the show was great! comparing Beyonces performance to Madonna is ridiculous because Madonna performed with several other artist while Beyonce perfomed with her self and destiny's child, for her its often a one man show and she showed out! If she doesnt have a new song why would she perform that? furthermore I think most people who hate beyonce hate her because she is a perfectionist but she knows shes not perfect they also hold her to a standard they do not hold anyone else to, so no matter what she does its never good enough to them. Either way beyonce rocked the stage, Rihanna should never even get compared since they are two completely different artists!!!!
thanks from morocco
Beyoncé simply can't win! No one in this era can outperform her. She makes something extremely difficult appear effortless. As for Rihanna, she’s a great recording artist, not performer. I've seen Beyoncé and Rihanna live and there's no comparison. Beyoncé schools the best of the best when it comes to live performance. And, the dance moves go hand in hand with the songs so it would have been awkward to see new choreography with familiar songs. New material is probably what was missing but I'm sure it was very difficult to narrow all her hits down to a 12 minute show. As for DC, she didn't have to include them at all so the fact that they performed a quarter of the Beyoncé show was remarkable. Most artists wouldn't take the risk of being accused of not being able to pull it off without them. And Kelly hands down appeared more confident and comfortable on stage last night than any of her solo gigs. All and all great performance and show. Go Bey!!!
Rihanna can. Lady Gaga can. Nicole Scherzinger can. You all need to broaden your horizons. Beyonce is not the only person who can perform. Even Kelly can perform just as good if not better.
Yawn. Borefest. Seen it before a billion times from her! When their careers are done Rihanna will go down as the better artist. Mark my words. Mariah Carey never danced and is better than Beyonce.
Rihanna's name should NEVER be mentioned in the same sentence as Beyonce EVER!!!B!tch can't even sing
I guess when you are at the top people just can't help but to hate. People have been trying for years to point out flaws in Beyonce. She's a great performer, accept it and move on. This reminds me of how people turned on MJ and suddenly no matter he personal life he was deemed as "boring","terrible" performer. That is very sad don't you think?
He was if you think about it. He performed the same show for 30 years. His dance moves were stolen as well. Underrated artists are so much better than overrated artists like Beyonce and to some extent Michael. And I loved Michael. He was brilliant but that doesn't change the fact that he did the same things over and over and got credit for things he didn't originate.
PARIS in ta House!Thanks Yardie!
Rihanna? Rihanna can't even properly sell an album without controversy. Have a seat & stop deluding yourselves. I can see Ciara being a performance option - but Rihanna? Have several seats. I thought Beyonce was good. A bit predictable, but she still killed it! 7/10 for me.
So why has she sold more than Beyonce. lol. Delusional. More #1's as well. That probably break poor Bey's heart.
@12:13 Beyonce's net worth is 300Mill while Rihanna's is 75Mill. I highly doubt Beyonce is crying over cant-sing-for-my-life-Rihanna. Plus, even if Rih does do better than her in terms of sales, why should Bey be heart-broken? A portion of the money that Rih makes is going straight into Bey's bank account, driving up her $$$. Remember, Jay owns Rih. LOL.
BEYONCE KILLED IT...MAN REAL TALK SHE DID WHAT SHE HAD TO DO...HOW THE HELL CAN YOU JUDGE HER..THATS A HEAVY SIN TO BARE...CAUSE NONE OF YOU ARE THE CREATOR...SO ZIP IT AND STOP WATCHING IT IF YOU DONT LIKE IT...I BET SHE CASHING THEM CHECKS WHILE YOU BIRDS TALKIN BOUT WHAT SHE DOIN..LMAO FROM A GROWN WOMAN,STOP HATING ND STEP YOUR COOKIES UP..#CHAYLA
Same ol, same ol Bey! Bring something new to the table!!! Boring!!!!
I love that Beyonce stays so humble about everything because BEYONCE IS THE BEST LIVE FEMALE PERFORMER OF ALL TIME! Who else can sing and dance at the same time for 13 minutes straight and sound good vocally! That's how a half time show should be done. It would be awkward to see a different choreography for crazy in love or single ladies because it is original and is remembered! Beyonce did her thing. Rihanna is a good performer too, but to raunchy for super bowl and not as good live as Beyonce. Beyonce did her thing. Good job!
Never boring! Probably one of the best LIVEST halftime shows ever!
WOW! That was really good! Speechless!
Seems like Nicki Minaj is not the only one who had a nose job.... Did anyone notice that Bey's nose look diffrent, pinched than before??? Her nose is so ugly now woowwww!!!!! Check at 04:08
I noticed her nose was majorly contoured for this performance.....looked more refined...but temporarily obviously...
Michael Jackson performing at super bowl: checkBeyonce performing at super bowl: checkRihanna at super bowl: I hope next super bowl halftime will be Rihanna and I hope like Michael Jackson and Beyonce, she picks the right songs to perform at the halftime. Usually I don't like most of the songs singers choose to perform at halftime. But I liked all of Beyonce's performances and songs at the halftime.
For me....Beyonce appeals because I like to focus mainly on the performer, so Madonna's performance was super boring for me, too much back up and production....same goes for when i watch Rihanna. The essence of Beyonce as a performer is to focus on her...she always tells us that she does not feel she needs a massive production, just a mic and light and specifically that she now focuses on quality not quantity....and it's true.....only because she is beyonce.....MJ too could get away with small repetitive but quality productions......this is what contributes to their iconic entertainer status.....so i think people should just get used to seeing beyonce with smaller productions and signature routines but crazy energy!!! I would love to see chris brown next year, thats only if he gets his act right......
HAHAHAHA every fucking one with brains knows that Beyonce KILLED THIS show so why argue about it? And enough with the "Beyonce stans need to sit down and blaa blaa blaa" not everyone who admits that she did really good job here is a stand! It's really getting old and it's also childish.
I see some people here trying to criticise Beyonce performance? WHAT? I find it pretty hilarious. So I'm gonna cut to the chase and gonna ask... tell me one female artist THEESE DAYS that can dance up to 15 minutes without loosing her breath, can sing while dancing, sing with POWERFUL HIGH NOTES, put A LOT effort to her concerts, shows , performances etc, and not forget her choreography nor lyrics?
When it comes to Beyonce it's simply quality not quantity.
I like Rihanna. When people compare Rihanna and Beyonce I laugh because they are not even on same league but when (some delusional) people say she's better than Beyonce it makes me wanna hate her. And I don't wanna hate her so people needs to stop saying this. Rihanna will never be half as good entertainer or performer than Beyonce. Just saying.
whait... for those who are saying there wasn't new material... why would she make for example new choreography when she haven't even put out new singles for a while?
#KINGBEY slayd it !!! two words; TRUE PERFORMER
They had a football game at a Beyonce concert. LOL #BADDIEBEY
