Pics: Sexy Beyonce Reunites With Destiny's Child Bandmates In Show-Stopping Half-time Super Bowl Performance!!!

She was under pressure to deliver a brilliant performance at Sunday's Super Bowl following the recent lip syncing controversy at President Obama's Inauguration.
And Beyonce took to the stage with trademark style, with an all-singing, all-dancing spectacular greatest hits set for the half time show, which culminated in her being joined on stage by Destiny's Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. The 31-year-old singer sported a plunging leather Rubin Singer corset and skirt which she stripped off to reveal a lace underlay during a slick, energetic show packed with special effects at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.

However, her show may have taken up a large amount of electricity, with the power in the stadium going out shortly after the 14 minute set. She emerged onstage singing lines from her R&B hit Love on Top under a giantlit up silhouette of herself, with a group of fans running on to the field to watch next to the lit up stage in the shape of twofacing profiles of the singer. Black over-the-knee socks over fishnet tights and high heeled ankle boots completed Beyonce's sexy outfit designed by little known New York based Rubin Singer.

The stage was dark while fire and lights burst from the sides as she began hit Crazy in Love, complete with a guitar flaming as it played out its solo. The clearly pumped up star even blew a kiss to the crowd, before beginning her show in front of fireworks and light effects on video screens. Beyonce's spectacular performance provided an elaborate contrast to the on-field sporting action between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers, with special effects including a light show, fireworks, and kaleidoscopic multiple video footage of the star.

Michelle had previously denied the band would reunite for the event, saying she had a prior commitment to appear in the musical Fela. So there was clear delight from the crowd when they took the stage, singing with the diva on their massive hits Bootylicious and Independent Woman, along with Beyonce's smash hit Single Ladies.

However, the trio left out their more recent effort, the slow number Nuclear - the first new Destiny’s Child recording in eight years, which was released last month.
But after the show, there were rumblings from critics and fans that Kelly and Michelle's vocals were unable to be heard over Beyonce's. To close the 14-minute set, Williams and Rowland left Beyonce to perform emotional show-stopper Halo.

The star was performing in front of up an estimated 76,468 people - the seating capacity of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome - as well as millions more throughout the world.  The Ravens ended up narrowly beating the 49ers 34 points to 31. Beyonce was the star feature following earlier performances by Alicia Keys who sung the National Anthem, and Jennifer Hudson who performed America The Beautiful before kick off.

She later posted a tribute to her fellow performers, writing: 'What a proud day for AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMEN!!!!!' 'Kelly, Michelle, Alicia, Jhud. You are all beautiful, talented and showed so much class! It was an honour to perform at the Super Bowl with you phenomenal ladies. Love Beyonce.'

Michelle Obama was another famous fan, posting on her Twitter page: 'Watching the #SuperBowl with family & friends. @Beyonce was phenomenal! I am so proud of her! -mo' However, despite Beyonce appearing to sing live, Twitter was filled with complaints from viewers at home who complained about the sound quality - some said that they were unable to hear Rowland and Williams as they joined their more illustrious bandmate on stage.

Throughout this week, excitement has been mounting for Beyonce's big performance, with the singer posting snaps of her final rehearsals ahead of Sunday's extravaganza on her blog site. Beyonce was under pressure to deliver following the recent lip syncing furore at President Obama's Inauguration ceremony. She was accused of miming the National Anthem at President Obama's inauguration ceremony, when a spokesman for the Marine Corps Band said she opted for a pre-recorded track of the song instead of singing live.

She defended her lip syncing at a Super Bowl press conference on Thursday where she said she did not feel confident singing live. 'I am a perfectionist,' she explained. 'I practice until my feet bleed and I did not have time to rehearse with the orchestra. Due to no proper sound check, I did not feel comfortable taking a risk. 'It was about the president and the inauguration, and I wanted to make him and my country proud, so I decided to sing along with my pre-recorded track, which is very common in the music industry.
'And I'm very proud of my performance.' She had insisted she would be singing live at the Super Bowl. 'I will absolutely be singing live,' she said. 'I am well-rehearsed. This is what I was born to do.' Beyonce is currently recording her fifth studio album expected to be released next year, and will also be the subject of a documentary - Life Is But a Dream, that premieres on February 16 on HBO.
