PEPSI PULSE #1 – BEYONCÉ PERFORMS FOR THE SUPER BOWL HALFTIME SHOW
The Super Bowl Halftime Show has become synonymous for being extravagant, an event that arguably rivals the Super Bowl itself. Beyoncé’s appearance at this year’s show may have been the best yet, as her 14-minute performance delivered in every way possible. From “Crazy in Love” to “Halo,” she performed a medley of records from her catalog with style and grace, rarely missing a note while hitting every dance move onstage. Beyoncé even brought out former Destiny’s Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams to join her in performing “Bootylicious,” “Independent Women Part 1” and “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It).” Add in grandiose fireworks as well as an elaborate stage and lighting setup, and Beyoncé’s performance was an incredible moment that millions of Americans will remember years from now.
