Beyonce shuts down Super Bowl XLVII

Hello World—Anthony here yet again with another week full of celebrity news.


It’s only February and I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say that Beyoncé is going to be having the best year ever. After all, this is the fourth edition of Pop Addict this year and I have managed to mention her in every article– she has to be do something right.


Super Bowl XLVII kicked off Sunday night with the Baltimore Ravens facing off against the San Francisco 49ers in New Orleans, La.


The show kicked off with award winning singer/actress Jennifer Hudson wearing one of the worse wigs I’ve ever seen, singing “America, The Beautiful” with the Sandy Hook Elementary School choir.


While it certainly was the most touching part of the biggest Sunday of the year, next time J Hud might want to take a different approach with her tresses.


Besides Jennifer’s hairy situation, there was a lot riding on this year’s game. With King Bey headlining the halftime show and the fact that this was Ray Lewis’ last football game ever, Super Bowl XLVII was not to be missed.


With the Ravens taking home the trophy and Beyoncé delivering a show stopping (and live sung) performance that would make any pop diva tremble with terror, neither of the two disappointed.


With all the PR and marketing behind Bey’s Super Bowl performance, one would think that we were gearing up for the second coming of Christ, and if you ask any Beyoncé fan, we were.


Complete with an army of backup dancers, a laser/light background that would put any show in Vegas to shame, and the reunion that some have been for waiting since 2004 , Beyoncé delivered the performance of her life.


After the whole National Anthem lip synching debacle, many were wondering if Bey would choose to go with a backing track (most singers at the Super Bowl do), or if she would go rouge and sing it live.


After belting out the first note of the show, King Bey’s choice was clear as she and her army of backup dancers gyrated and grooved through a melody of her hit songs.


Just when you thought the show couldn’t get any better, the singer’s former Destiny’s Child band mates popped up from under the stage to join her and sing a few of their past hits.


We’re going to use the term singing lightly because it was obvious that neither Kelly nor Michelle’s microphone was turned up as loud as Beyoncé’s. I detect a little shade by Mrs. Knowles on that part, but nonetheless it was an awesome show.


The drama didn’t stop there either. When the game resumed the power went out during the third quarter, completely stopping the game for 30 minutes.


Many joked that it was Beyoncé’s electrifying performance that caused the outage.  Either that or Mrs. Carter, who is a notorious narcissist, wanted to make sure that everyone remembered her instead of the game–just a theory.


As always tune into Pop Addict next week to see what’s going on in the world of celebrities.
