Beyonce - Beyonce Reunites Destiny's Child In Show-stopping Super Bowl Half-time Set

Beyonce brought her superstar status to New Orleans, Louisiana on Sunday (03Feb13) as she took over the Super Bowl for a spectacular half-time show featuring a special Destiny's Child reunion.

The pop icon opened the big show at the Superdome with Love On Top and was joined by a large troupe of dancers for renditions of her smash hits Crazy In Love, End of Time and Baby Boy, which included a visually stunning dance routine.

Her former Destiny's Child pals Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams then jumped out from beneath the stage to play their first live set in five years.

The girls, all dressed in skin-tight black leather, turned up the heat with sexy performances of Bootylicious and Charlie's Angels theme tune Independent Women, complete with pyrotechnics.

Rowland and Williams stayed on stage to join Beyonce for her hit Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) and then departed as she wrapped the 12-minute gig solo with Halo.

Famous fans of the headliner took to Twitter.com after the performance to rave about the set - Demi Lovato ‏declared, "Good GOD Beyonce is one of the greatest performers to have ever walked this planet... She's Killing It!!!!!", while Olivia Munn mused, "Wow. Beyonce brought Destiny's Child to Super Bowl 2013! What a woman/friend to share this moment w/ (with the) people who helped start it all."

Sophia Bush told her fans, "Never has their been a woman so simultaneously sexy-as-f**k and so-damn-classy", and rapper Eve ‏commented, "Who gave B s**t for lip syncing??? She just Murdered half time!! Love the Destiny's Child moment".

Beyonce's sister Solange Knowles simply stated, "No. One. Better."

The superstar made a point to sing the whole show-stopping set live after the controversy at U.S. President Barack Obama's inauguration ceremony last month (Jan13), when she was caught bolstering her vocals for the National Anthem with a pre-recorded version of The Star-Spangled Banner.

The Super Bowl kicked off with Beyonce's Dreamgirls co-star Jennifer Hudson who paid tribute to victims of the December (12) shooting at Newtown, Connecticut's Sandy Hook Elementary School by performing America the Beautiful with the school's choir, while Alicia Keys belted out the National Anthem while playing a grand piano.

The Baltimore Ravens led the San Francisco 49ers 21-6 at half-time. Play was interrupted for 34 minutes at the start of the third quarter due to a power cut to the stadium, but the Ravens just managed to hold on to a narrow lead as the 49ers made a second half charge to end the game 34-31 and take home the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
