In a little over a week, Beyonce will make another very public appearance when she headlines the half-time show at Super Bowl XLVII on Feb. 3. Us Weekly is reporting that she”ll open her set with “Crazy In Love” and then halfway through will be joined by her Destiny”s Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams for a medley including “Bills, Bills, Bills,” “Survivor” and new track, “Nuclear.”
Hmmm. She”ll likely have time to throw in a few other numbers and while the Destiny”s Child songs sound plausible, we”re rather hear “Say My Name” and “Bootylicious.”
As far as other Beyonce songs, there is absolutely no way she is leaving the New Orleans Superdome without playing “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It).” I may have no clue whether the Baltimore Ravens or the San Francisco 49ers are going to win (actually, I”m calling for the 49ers to win 27-24), but she will play that. I also expect “Irreplaceable” to show up, although she could have a lot of fun with “Countdown” or “Run The World (Girls).”
If she decides to get all meaningful on us, she may slow things down with “I Was Here,” but I doubt it.
Next week, I”ll post my dream half-time show.
And as for the whole lip-syncing brouhaha over her performance of the “Star Spangled Banner” at Monday’s Inaugural, does anyone really care if she sings live at the Super Bowl? Given that she will likely be dancing instead of standing still, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if she lip syncs and I don’t care.
What do you want to hear her perform?
