The Grammy-winning trio, surprisingly, will not perform their mega hits 'Say My Name' and 'Bootylicious'.
The list of songs that Destiny's Child is set to perform during the Super Bowl halftime show on February 3 at the New Orleans Superdome has been unveiled. The trio's onstage performance is just one of the highlights of their long-awaited reunion that includes a new single and a forthcoming album.
After Beyonce Knowles kicks-off the halftime performances with her solo hit "Crazy in Love", Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams (II) will join her midway into the show for a three-song medley, beginning with "Bills, Bills, Bills", followed by "Survivor" and ending with their new single "Nuclear". While the decision to include their latest track was to be expected mainly for promotional intents, the choice for the mid-tempo tune, over their other past hits like "Bootylicious" and "Say My Name" surprised followers, considering the Super Bowl is known to be such a high-energy event.
Fans are more interested about the group's scheduled live performance at the much-anticipated NFL games, following the recent controversy surrounding Beyonce's rendition of the national anthem at President Obama's second inauguration last Monday. Williams came to her defense on the ABC morning TV show "Good Morning America", saying that the issue was "disappointing and sad ... that was such a big moment for her. I wish people would let it go."
A source close to Beyonce said the "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" singer was determined to make a fierce comeback after the much-talked about lip-syncing incident. "She can't wait to get on the Super Bowl stage and show everyone. She can't wait to knock 'em dead," the source said.
