During the halftime show, all eyes were on Beyonce as she electrified the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
The superstar gave an energetic performance, beginning her 12-minute-set with a hit “Love on Top,” before being joined by her female dancers to perform “Crazy in Love.” Though Jay-Z is featured on the song, he did not come on stage, choosing instead to watch his wife from backstage.
Beyonce then went into her slower single “End Of Time,” before dancing her way into “Baby Boy.” As anticipated, she was later joined onstage by former Destiny’s Child band members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. The group sang a medley of their best songs such as “Bootylicious” and “Independent Women.”
Rowland and Williams then helped Beyonce belt out her ladies anthem, “Single Ladies" before Beyonce ended the halftime show with “Halo.”
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.”
Jay-Z was also clearly proud of his wife.
“Lights out!!! Any questions??,” Jay-Z tweeted after Beyonce’s halftime show, referring to a power outage at the Superdome following Beyonce’s set.
