Even though a bunch of relatively (depending on your tastes) good looking men took to the field to fight for the Super Bowl trophy, the event was really dominated by a couple of beautiful, talented women.
Before the coin toss, Alicia Keys sang a slow piano version of The National Anthem, yes, live. Personally, I thought she did a good job of making the song her own, and we all know that it’s not the easiest song to sing.
Jennifer Hudson sang “America The Beautiful” accompanied by students from Sandy Hook Elementary choir. I think the unfortunate violent connection that JHud shared with these children made this performance very beautiful and moving.
Of course everyone was waiting for the big Halftime show featuring Beyonce and the return of Destiny’s Child. I could talk about a lot of the things that happened during this performance, and the aftermath on Twitter, but I’m just going to enjoy the fact that all of this happened.
Bonus Jay-Z hugging his wife backstage after her performance!!
