Commentary: Beyoncé gives Super Bowl best thing it never had

Single ladies all over the country are putting their hands up and thanking their lucky stars because Beyoncé is slated to perform during the 2013 Super Bowl halftime show.

Beyoncé posted a picture of herself on her blog Tuesday with the white text, “Feb. 3” and “2013,” the date of Super Bowl XLVII, written over eye-black under her eyes. This was her way of confirming that she will be performing at this season’s Super Bowl. I proceeded to celebrate the news by dancing to “Single Ladies” around my apartment and making sure to have Destiny’s Child on blast and repeat for the remainder of the evening.

This diva is known for her Sasha Fierce attitude onstage and never disappoints her audience when it comes to flashiness and charisma, making her halftime debut something for everyone to look forward to. She already made an appearance in 2004 during Super Bowl XXXVIII, singing the National Anthem in her hometown of Houston. Now she’s ready to leave the opening ceremonies behind and headline one of the greatest competitions in professional sports at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans next year.

People have already begun spreading rumors about whether her husband, music sensation Jay-Z, will make a guest appearance on stage and possibly even bring their daughter Blue Ivy Carter, who will be just over 1 year old at the time of the Super Bowl. There’s also rumors swirling that Destiny’s Child might reunite at the show. Kids from the 90s could have a meltdown considering the Spice Girls made its fans’ dreams come true by reuniting at the Summer Olympics in London.

At Super Bowl XLVI last February, halftime show headliner Madonna performed along with M.I.A., Cee Lo Green, Nicki Minaj and LMFAO and received mixed reviews. Some of Madonna’s biggest fans were let down by her show while others were amazed by her acrobatic performers, the show’s overall theme and use of other celebrities.

It’s hard for me to believe that Beyoncé will put on anything less than a spectacular performance, but some can wonder if there will be a mishap during her show as there has been in the past. The notorious Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake shirt-ripping, breast-exposing scandal of 2004 is still circulating around the media, along with M.I.A.’s inappropriate hand gesture (flashing her middle finger) during last year’s show. I honestly don’t think Beyoncé will have any problems because she is absolutely perfect, but that’s just my opinion.

I’m also loving the fact the Super Bowl coordinators have been choosing dominant females to perform during halftime shows for three years running. First Fergie with the Black Eyed Peas at Super Bowl XLV, then Madonna and now Beyoncé. It’s a nice break for those who only watch football for a night its side entertainment of commercials and the halftime show. Plus, who run the world? Girls.

I can’t wait to be singing at the top of my lungs during the halftime show while my New York Jets are in the locker room taking a break from destroying whatever other team is in Super Bowl XLVII.
