BEYONCÉ drew some criticism for her not-so-live gig at PRESIDENT OBAMA'S inauguration . . . but at least for now, it seems like the Internet LOVED her Super Bowl halftime performance.
--Beyoncé's set-list included "Love on Top", "Crazy in Love", "End of Time" and "Baby Boy". And as expected, she reunited with former DESTINY'S CHILD members MICHELLE WILLIAMS and KELLY ROWLAND.
--They performed "Bootylicious", "Independent Women" and a special version of Beyoncé's "Single Ladies". Beyoncé ended the show with "Halo". (--You can find video of the entire show on YouTube.)
--For the record, it's hard to say for sure if Beyoncé did the whole show without a backing track . . . but last week she guaranteed it WOULD be live. She said, quote, "I'll absolutely be singing live. I am well-rehearsed. This is what I was born to do."
--One person who REALLY enjoyed the show was former NFL quarterback JOE THEISMANN. At least, we think. Just after her performance, he Tweeted, quote, "Beyoncé [S-word] the house down."
--He later deleted the Tweet . . . and clarified, quote, "My bad meant SHUT down house."
--OK, so it was just a misspelling . . . like just before that when he Tweeted, quote, "Done is only half lit." (--Of course, he meant D-O-M-E. It's possible that Joe was enjoying an adult beverage or two during the game.)
--In other Twitter reactions, KOBE BRYANT wasn't shy about throwing out a superlative. He Tweeted, quote, "Phenomenal talent. Respect. Beyoncé: The Greatest Female Entertainer of All Time."
--KIM KARDASHIAN also thought it was, like, the GREATEST THING EVER. She Tweeted, quote, "OMG Beyoncé killed it!!! And when Destiny's Child came out . . . that made my life! #Bootylicious"
--And LARRY KING Tweeted, quote, "Beyoncé's halftime performance was probably one of the best I've seen, and I've seen them all. Lights out!"
