No less than the First Lady Michelle Obama praised Beyonce Knowles for her explosive Super Bowl halftime show performance Sunday night, February 3 at the New Orleans Superdome. Mrs. Obama took time from her busy schedule to post a flattering tweet for the ardent supporter of her husband, President Barack Obama. "Watching the #SuperBowl with family & friends. @Beyonce was phenomenal! I am so proud of her!" the first lady posted on Twitter.
Other celebrities also expressed their admiration online. Demi Lovato gushed, "Y'all can keep watching the game but I think it's safe to say Beyonce just won the Super Bowl." Fellow diva Carrie Underwood commented, "@Beyonce just made all the rest of us singers look stupid! In the most awesome way possible!", while Kim Kardashian exclaimed, "OMG Beyonce killed it!!!" Another song-and-dance artist Nicole Scherzinger added, "Beyonce just slayed super bowl half time!!!"
Even male celebrities joined in on the online worship, mostly connecting the power outage that delayed the game by 30 minutes to Beyonce's 14-minute, ultra hot performance. TV executive, host and author Andy Cohen claimed, "Beyonce blew the lights out!" while Blink-182's Mark Hoppus wittingly remarked, "If you like it then you should have put a fuse in it!" Celebrity stylist Brad Goreski cleverly attributed the blackout to Bey's repertoire, saying, "It was all that hair flipping and whipping."
From all the reaction, it's clear that R'n'B superstar outshined even the big football game, turning the Super Bowl into "BeyonceBowl". It featured not just her usual powerful vocals and fierce choreography but also used a lot of techno-effects. After a fake-out from Michelle Williams (II) last week about a Destiny's Child onstage reunion at the Super Bowl, turns out she and Kelly Rowland were indeed part of Beyonce's halftime show, dishing out a brief set of "Bootylicious", "Independent Women" and a spectacular "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" performance.
