Beyoncé Knowles gave a live performance for Super Bowl XLVII's halftime show tonight in New Orleans. She rocked the Superdome with her performances of hits old and new including "Crazy in Love" and "Single Ladies." Beyoncé was also joined by surprise special guests— her Destiny's Child bandmates, Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland — for a performance of their hit "Bootylicious," before she closed out the show with her song "Halo" to a rocking crowd — click through to watch her full performance.
Beyoncé gave a sneak peek into tonight's big show when she quieted critics by belting out an impromptu performance of the national anthem during a press conference in New Orleans earlier this week. It's an exciting time for Beyoncé leading up to tonight's big show — check out her road to the Super Bowl.
Congrats to the Baltimore Ravens, winners of Super Bowl 2013! We loved that Ravens coach John Harbaugh brought his daughter, Alison, out onto the field to accept his team's trophy last night — talk about an unforgettable father-daughter moment! Harbaugh's not the only one to share the spotlight with his family. Check out all of the NFL's punting papas that have brought their lil ones onto the field following their victories throughout the years.
Beyoncé Knowles's halftime performance quite literally stole the spotlight at the Super Bowl (only minutes after the halftime festivities, the Superdome went dark, putting the game on hold). The singer drew all eyes with a Destiny's Child-assisted set and one seriously sexy leather getup by Rubin Singer. Now we're taking a closer look postshow at every jaw-dropping angle, which includes a leather and lace bustier, tights, and Proenza Schouler boots. If you missed a moment, we still highly suggest that you find a friend with the show on DVR or catch the action on YouTube, but in the meantime, you can at least get a glimpse of all the glamorous outfit details inside — then tell us what you think in comments.
Sandra Bullock and her son, Louis, showed support for the Baltimore Ravens when they arrived at the Superdome in New Orleans yesterday to watch the Super Bowl together. Little Louis was decked out in Ravens gear, sporting a jersey with Michael Oher's name on it. Both Louis and Sandra have a strong connection to Oher — his story was the basis for The Blind Side, the 2009 film that earned Sandra her first Oscar win. Sandra and Louis were rooting for the right team as the Ravens defeated the San Francisco 49ers 34-31.
The Ravens' win may mark a year of good things to come for Sandra, who has two films coming out this year, Gravity with George Clooney and The Heat with Melissa McCarthy. The latter stars Sandra and Melissa as an FBI agent and detective, respectively, who get paired up to solve a drug case. The movie has turned the two actresses into close friends — Sandra and Melissa even take vacations together to Disneyland. The Heat hits theaters on June 28.
Are you ready for some football? Even if the sport doesn't get you excited for the Super Bowl, the actual event itself is fun for everyone — just look at the commercials. While beer and web domain companies often get a lot of attention for their half-naked stars, it's babies and kids who steal the show. Just look at the mini Darth Vader Volkswagen made famous a few years ago, or the little boy who just wanted to give his favorite football player a little morale boost. We've rounded up 13 of our favorite Super Bowl ads — from this year and years past — starring babies and kids.
Animal Planet has done it again. This year's Puppy Bowl was filled with serious action-packed adorableness. The hedgehog cheerleaders just about stole the show from all the cute pups tackling, rolling, and playing. Even referee Dan Schachner had a hard time keeping his hands off the sweet dogs! And who could resist the over-the-top kitty halftime show? Click through for a recap of the game showcasing pictures of all the adorable dogs of Puppy Bowl IX. And don't forget to head over to Animal Planet for more information about adopting any of these cute pups!
"Will this one read Fifty Shades of Grey to me in a sexy voice?" This burning inquiry is just one of the many hilarious questions Amy Poehler has for a Best Buy employee in the company's Super Bowl ad that just aired during the game. We love seeing "sexy" ads with funny women way more than sexist ads with bikini-clad women — so you go, Amy! If you're watching the game today, what are some of your favorite ads? And watch the full commercial featuring Amy now.
Ahead of the kickoff, the Superdome became a stage to showcase the vocals — and ensembles — of both Jennifer Hudson and Alicia Keys. Both singers drew the spotlight with their respective renditions of "America the Beautiful" and the national anthem, while providing a more glamorous twist on game-day gear. Alicia stepped out for the occasion in a scarlet-hued, body-conscious floor-length Alaia gown with a fishtail hemline, which she adorned with a Marina B gold choker (rooting for the 49ers, perhaps?). Jennifer Hudson, who led a moving performance with the Sandy Hook Elementary School chorus, opted for a leather turtleneck top by Monika Chiang and a white L’Wren Scott military-style pencil skirt, which she polished off with tights and ankle-strap heels. Alicia gave us all-out glamazon style, while Jennifer's look is a more sophisticated take — now we're turning it over to you: which Super Bowl styler won this game-day battle?
The Super Bowl is here, and if you haven't figured out your party attire yet, it's time to get shopping. You'll want to wear something festive enough to show your team pride, but also comfortable enough to last through all the beer-drinking, burger-eating, and Beyoncé halftime performance dance moves you'll be busting out. Whether you're cheering on the San Francisco 49ers or rooting for the Baltimore Ravens, we've got some cute pieces for you to snap up before the big game, and — bonus! — they're inconspicuous enough to wear well after the party is over. Pro tip: if you aren't leaning toward one side, just go for gold — both the Ravens and the Niners use the metallic hue as their team color.
