Live Commentary: Beyonce's Super Bowl half-time show - as it happened

Sports Mole's live coverage of Beyonce's show during the half-time interval at the Super Bowl.
Live Commentary: Beyonce's Super Bowl half-time show - as it happened

Last year's Super Bowl was watched by 111 million US TV viewers - but three million more tuned in to watch Madonna's half-time show.

This year's performance from Beyonce, aka the biggest popstar on the planet, could be even more spectacular. Will she sing live? Will Destiny's Child turn up? Will hubbie Jay-Z make a cameo?

Beyonce, never what you'd call a blabbermouth, has kept all the details a secret, so your guess is as good as ours... though it's a fairly safe bet that Alexandra Burke won't be playing a part. Hold tight and keep your fingers crossed for 'Halo'...

12.25amSo apparently it's around 30 minutes until BEYONCE O'CLOCK. I am drinking a vodka diet coke and feeling kind of guilty about it.

12.29amSo far the Super Bowl reminds me a lot of THIS:

12.31amI have just been told off for linking to a picture of Alexandra Burke...

12.34amBeyoncé's halftime show will last just 12 MINUTES, which means she's going to have to be ruthless with song selection. If Destiny's Child are making an appearance, K.Ro and Michelle are going to get 3 minutes max.

12.37amTime in New Orleans is 6.37pm so Blue Ivy should still be awake to watch the halftime show. "Today mommy's gonna play the Super Bowl..."


12.41amWe are now in a "time out", which is like a dance break, but without the dancing, and less fun :-(

12.43amCan anyone else hear 'Halo' in the background? IS IT A HINT?!

12.44amThis really is quite a lot of sport for a Beyoncé gig isn't it?

12.45amMemo from the boss: "DON'T MENTION THE PLAYERS' BULGES!"

12.48amDo you know what true athleticism is? Doing the 'Single Ladies' routine IN HEELS

12.49amOh yeah, and singing at the same time too

12.51amI think if I could watch B's halftime show with anyone in the whole world, it would be Solange.

12.52amTBQH I'm not being asked to do this again next year...

12.54amWell done to everyone in the UK for staying up for the halftime show. If you're a bit shonky at work tomorrow, I hope you have understanding bosses. "I know, I know, it was Beyoncé..."


12.57am"And that closes out the half..."

12.59amI'll tell you who won't be watching the halftime show... LeToya Luckett

1.00amReally craving a bit of 'Deja Vu' now TBH

1.02amDo you remember the first time you heard 'Crazy in Love'? I was driving in Wales and nearly CRASHED MY CAR

1.03amFour minutes till Beyoncé!!!

1.04amBeyoncé would look super hot in an American football costume, no?

1.05amOne minute thirty till Beyoncé! Kelly Rowland has just knocked back a triple whisky for Dutch courage

1.06amGod knows what Michelle Williams is on


1.06amOr yeah, maybe not just yet...

1.07amThis is what is technically known as "filler"... think track eight on a Destiny's Child album

1.08amI MAY CRY


1.08amI wish I was one of those running people!

1.09amLOVE ON TOP!

1.09amBeyoncé is writhing on the floor. This is the best writhing I have ever seen.

1.10amBeyoncé's thighs look like Olympic GOLD

1.11amBeyoncé just did a slut-drop without even trying!

1.12amThis is End of Time from her incredible last album '4'.

1.13amAnd remember she is doing all of this IN HEELS


1.14amOooh we're going retro with 'Baby Boy'... will we get a Sean Paul cameo?

1.14amJay-Z must have the worst case of blueballs ever right now

1.15amK.RO KLAXON!

1.15amDestiny's Child are onstage and doing 'Bootylicious!'


1.16amBeyonce just let Kelly stand in the middle That is true class.

1.17am"Good morning Charlie..."

1.18amI reckon this is what Kelly wears on an average Sunday night to be honest



1.19amBeyonce just have Kelly and Michelle a shout-out... pure class, no?

1.19am"Where my ring at?" Please try to drop this into conversation tomorrow.

1.20amBeyonce is now doing 'Halo'. THIS IS NOT A DRILL

1.21am'Halo' sounds pretty good in a packed football stadium, no?

1.21amThis is what is known in the business as "singing your tits off".

1.21amHer hair is like a lion's mane... wow

1.21am"Thank you for this moment. God bless y'all."

1.22amWell that was absolutely f**king incredible right?

1.22amWhatever the result tonight, let's not forget the important thing... Beyoncé reunited Destiny's Child and got them to sing 'Single Ladies'.

1.23amIs anyone else slightly out of breath from watching that?

1.24amIn related news, Beyoncé just crashed Twitter.

1.26amWhen I go to sleep tonight, I shall be dreaming of Beyoncé, mainly hair and thighs tbh

1.27amI would have liked 112 minutes including the full Freemasons club mix of 'Ring the Alarm', but I guess there is a football match to finish...

1.29amOK so I'm done now. If you want to abuse me for my "frantic excitement" during this live commentary, I'm @mrnicklevine on Twitter. I'll see you next year for Katy Perry's halftime show.
