"Beyonce Knowles' onstage ease, her charisma, her effulgence—fans of pop know these things well. On Superbowl Sunday, they were all right there for the rest of the world to see.

"Beyonce sang like she had something to prove at the Super Bowl, balancing out the testosterone levels on the football field with a dance-heavy performance that featured her Destiny's Child band mates and an all-female band." Mesfin Fekadu, AP
"Beyonce has a more intense look (than) many of the guys on the field. 49ers need a little of that." EJ Dionneof the Washington Post.
