Beyonce is nominated for three Emmy Awards this year. The 65th Primetime Emmy Awards nominations announcement took place Thursday morning. The show will telecast live on CBS, Sunday, Sept. 22, from Los Angeles, and will be hosted by actor Neil Patrick Harris.

The 31-year-old diva had her own HBO documentary air this year, but she is instead nominated for her role in one of the largest media events of the year—Super Bowl 2013. Based on her electrifying performance, she has been nominated in three categories, Outstanding Special Class – Short-Format Live-Action Entertainment Programs; Outstanding Technical Direction, Camerawork, Video Control for a Miniseries, Movie, or a Special, and Outstanding Lighting Design/Lighting Direction for a Variety Special.

Evidently, while the Baltimore Ravens defeated the San Francisco 49ers at Super Bowl 2013, Beyonce’s halftime performance was just as big of an event as the main show.

The superstar gave an energetic performance at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, beginning her 12-minute-set with a hit, “Love on Top,” and eventually being joined by former Destiny’s Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. Dressed in a leather corset and lace bottom, Beyonce electrified the stage, along with Rowland and Williams.

Celebrities reacted to the show, such as LaLa Vasquez, who wrote on Twitter, “Halftime show slayed!!!!! Yessss @Beyonce!! ICONIC!! And I'm so proud of my BFF @KELLYROWLAND and @RealMichelleW! Wow.”

Beyonce's sister, Solange Knowles, tweeted, “Beyonce Bowl/No. One. Better/By the way ... Black girls ROCK, and I couldn't be more proud to be one tonight!!!!”

Kim Kardashian said, “OMG Beyonce killed it!!! And when Destiny's Child came out ... that made my life! #Bootylicious.”

After the performance, she ran into husband Jay-Z’s arms backstage, surrounded by cameras and the media.

Lights out!!! Any questions??,” Jay-Z tweeted after Beyonce’s halftime show, referring to a power outage at the Superdome following Beyonce’s set. The Baltimore Ravens won Super Bowl XLVII, 34-31.
