Coldplay may be the headline band for the Super Bowl 50 halftime show and, yes, football will be played, but let's be real here for a sec: When Beyoncé takes her rightful place on the
throne stage Sunday, February 7, the collective watching world will be left scratching their heads like one of the band's new primate pals and muttering, "Denver what?" "Carolina who?" She just has that effect on people.
Plus, it was just three years ago that B stepped onto that same stage and owned it. So although she's scheduled to come in with the assist for this year’s NFL grand finale, Bey has gamely run the show solo before -- offering up countless wind-blown head flicks, her signature Sasha Fierce-ness and that epic (and criminally overdue) Destiny’s Child mini-reunion.
The results? Basically, no one with a pulse and at least one operative sensory function could refuse to pick up what she was putting down that night. It was like that. But let’s see how deeply Bey’s 2013 Super Bowl fiyah has been seared into your Beyhive brain, shall we?
Super Bowl 50 airs at 6:30 p.m. ET on CBS on Sunday, February 7.
