Beyonce channeled her Sasha Fierce alter-ego on stage at the half-time Super Bowl show this evening as a surprise reunion of Destiny´s Child wowed the crowd in New Orleans. Launching the show with a strong performance of ´Crazy in Love´ complete with a guitar flaming as it played out its solo, Beyonce proved her doubters wrong by singing live one week after the controversy over her lip-synching at the Presidential Inauguration. In a massive surprise for the tens of millions watching at home, Beyonce was joined by Destiny´s Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams who sang with the diva

Doesn´t get any better than a flaming guitar, does it?

Just a calisthenic exercise performed by some pretty girls. I didn´t notice much musical talent. Wonder if they were responsible for knocking out the power?

Ummmm....so that was spectacular? Guess it doesn´t take much anymore. I´ve seen Beyonce a couple of times and it´s always the same thing. Good grief. I guess that´s what passes for talent today. Low info indeed.

At our party the consensus is that she yells really well, dances better, but it´s to bad she didn´t try to sing. (Live?)

Take that, Mitches!
Apparently, CBS is perfectly fine with alienating an (admittedly slim) majority of this country for their own minority views.
Next thing you know, they´ll set up a series of softball interviews with Obama to further his agenda! Just like the state-run media used to do with Stalin and Hitler!
But, naw...that´s hyperbole, isn´t it? Couldn´t happen here.

Ours is probably the only house in the US not tuned in to the overhyped Super Bowl and the triply overhyped, worst kept secret ever of the Most Saintly Beyonce (sarcasm) and her half-time worship service. I think Beyonce has a good voice, but does not use it in any way that impresses me. She is an excellent caterwauler. The fact that she´s BFFs with the Poseurs in Chief makes me want to see her even less.

Skimpy black leather and lace outfits on talent-less ´´entertainers´´. Fortunately my granddaughters were not watching as my daughter and son-in-law don´t have tv. They could be watching from the internet, and I KNOW the half-time would be blocked. Are the organizers unaware of the age groups that watch? The only half-time show that was memorable for me was when my parents visited from England, and it was a Disney half-time. We all enjoyed it.

It was the worst form of exploitation to put those Sandy Hook kids out there. One of the real problems with survivors of violence is a sense of guilt that they lived, and someone else died.
It must be even more difficult for little kids than for adults. Shame on the NFL.
And I was pretty sure that Alicia Keys would never end with her over the top melisma attached to the star spangled banner. The whole pre-game and half time show, with that screeching dancer, who appeared ready to take it all off, made me a grouchy old man.

Actually, Beyonce did not appear to sing "absolutely live" as promised. I´ve spoken to people in the know who say she sang live in parts but sang along to a pre-recorded track in other parts. Therefore, it was not "absolutely live".

The comments about her performance on the social media have been largely negative.

I´m with #11. They could save a bundle on this overhyped halftime show by awarding it to a really good high school marching band (Macy´s Parade, anyone?) and instead of paying them, they make a large donation to the school which could be applied toward funding their arts program.

I saw about 10 seconds of this "show" - - and remarked to my wife - "they look like prostitutes".

It was better than the "wardrobe malfunction" and better than Madonna, but it did look like a bunch of prostitutes and wasn´t appropriate for kids to view. I know they can see way worse, but this is supposed to be family entertainment.

I thought it was pretty lame. Beyonce is a big girl, isn´t she (at least by Hollywood standards). I switched to Downton Abbey shortly afterwards and came back for the end of the game. Pretty exciting, but sorry SF couldn´t convert (not a fan, just would have found it more exciting).

Since when is an in-your-face screaming calisthenics show half-time entertainment?
And what is there about our National Anthem that causes popular artists to make singing it a stylistic romp and all about them? Ridiculous, Alicia Keyes. In contrast, I had the good fortune to attend a huge new citizen swearing in ceremony at the L.A. Convention Center a few months ago. One of the highlights of the ceremony was an amateur young lady who sang our anthem with feeling BUT sang it straight, a cappella and in-tune. It was so moving bringing thousands to tears and then cheers. That young singer got it that it was not about her.

It sure is Lupita Nyong´o´s year to shine! The first-time Oscar winner was crowned as this year´s "Most Beautiful" by People magazine. The mag announced who was awarded their prestigious honor Wednesday morning. "It was exciting and just a major, major compliment," Nyong´o said of gracing the cover. "I was happy for all the girls who would see me on (it) and feel a little more seen." The 31-year-old actress has certainly proved this past year that she is beautiful both inside and out.

Given the current state of the USA, Republicans should be winning every election from Seattle to Key West.

The international situation is in free fall with China becoming the global power, Iran making a mockery of faux negotiations and Putin on the way to reconstituting the Soviet Union. Al Qaeda is not only alive, it’s growing. (GM is dead.) Optimism about our country is in the proverbial toilet. More Americans feel threatened by their own

The age 21 rule sets the United States apart from all advanced Western nations, and it has pushed kids toward pills and other anti-social behavior. The National Minimum Drinking Age Act, passed by Congress 30 years ago this July, is a gross violation of civil liberties and must be repealed. It is absurd and unjust that young Americans can vote, marry, enter contracts, and serve in the military at 18 but cannot buy an alcoholic drink in a bar or restaurant. The age 21 rule sets the United States apart from all advanced Western nations and lumps it with small

Atheists who complained about pre-meeting prayers conducted by members of the Pismo Beach City Council in California can now claim a win. Council members say they’re going to stop saying prayers at public meetings and that the volunteer chaplain will no longer be invited to give the opening invocations, The Blaze reported. They’ve also agreed to pay a symbolic settlement of $1 to each of the the two plaintiffs — and another $47,500 to cover the two plaintiffs’ legal fees. The council members announced their decision on the heels of complaints filed by the out-of-state Freedom From Religion Foundation, which

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline. She blamed the Obama administration

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
