Beyonce Will Be This Year’s Super Bowl Halftime Performer


The identity of this year’s Super Bowl halftime performer has leaked a day ahead of the official announcement. So which pop star will we be grumbling about this year? It’s Beyonce. Most of you will know her as the girl who’s married to Jay-Z. Some of you will know her as the hot one from Destiny’s Child. A few of you may be able to name one of her solo hits. Oh, and Warren Sapp is a big fan.

So where does Beyonce rank on the Super Bowl Halftime Performer Disappointment Meter? A little below Madonna I’d say. As in more disappointing than Madonna. Madonna sucks but at least there was curiosity about what she’d do in terms of staging and costumes. What’s Beyonce going to do? I perceive her as being fairly wholesome and safe. Maybe Jay-Z will join on her on-stage. If he does then the disappointment lifts a little.

Hard to get stoked about this choice. But it could’ve been worse. It could’ve been Herman’s Hermits or some other old-fart outfit like that. Remember The Who? God were they awful.
