We’re a little over a week away from Beyonce’s highly-anticipated halftime show at Super Bowl XLVII. Who’s excited? I definitely was, until I saw her set list. Given Destiny’s Child’s catalogue and her own extensive solo discography, I’m a little surprised of her choices. Disappointed is a word that quickly comes to mind. Of course, the leaked set list might not be true, but US Weekly is reporting it’s from a reliable source.
Before I share the quartet of songs she’s performing along with Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams for the DC reunion, I wanted to quickly share a couple of photos Bey shared with her fans via Instagram. The 31-year-old is seen in a solo (above) and group shot rehearsing for her big day. Reportedly, the singer is anxious to wow audiences after her Inauguration lip-sync controversy. The black and white silhouette snap below is gorgeous. Check it out, along with the rumored set list.
US Weekly’s source claims Beyonce will begin the show by performing her solo debut hit single, “Crazy In Love” then will be immediately joined by Rowland and Williams. Once reunited, the trio are performing a medley of their greatest hits, “Bills, Bills, Bills” and “Survivor,” then close out the show with their new single, “Nuclear.”
Ummm, okay… While, I fully expected DC’s lackluster new track would be in the mix, I’m a little bummed about the other DC tracks. No “Bootylicious,” “Lose My Breath,” or “Jumpin, Jumpin“? For that matter, why is Beyonce singing only one solo song? After all, she got the gig on her own. “Ring The Alarm,” “Irreplaceable,” or “Single Ladies” nowhere to be found? For shame Mrs. Carter. Absolute blasphemy.
What do you think of the rumored set list? Disappointed or ecstatic? The song I’m most looking forward to is “Crazy In Love“. Hopefully, Jay-Z does a surprise cameo and performs his rap interlude. Do you agree? Sound off below.
