Last night, football's biggest game gave viewers quite a few memorable moments to cherish, and most of them had nothing to do with the sport. Perhaps one of the most talked about aspects of the event is Beyonce's power packed half-time show. The pop superstar came out swinging with a stunning performance that left even her hardest critics 'speechless'. Reuniting with her former band mates from Destiny's Child, Beyonce gave several renditions of her biggest hits that included everything from 'Love on Top' to 'Crazy in Love'. Her musical gal pals, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams joined her for a reenactment of the sensational 'Single Ladies'. Her top of the line vocals and dance moves caused some viewers to joke that when Beyonce left the stage, she took the power with her.
That brings us to the next most memorable moment of the big name. Dubbed the 'Blackout Bowl', football fans were puzzled by a 35 minute delay when the lights went out shortly after half-time. For a brief moment, it seemed the leading Baltimore Ravens lost a bit of their momentum, allowing the San Francisco 49ers to get in on the action and make the game more interesting until it's end. Ultimately, quarterback Joe Flacco and his teammates pulled out the win. But, for a few minutes, fans were on their toes and worried about the outcome.
What would talk about the Super Bowl XLVII be without mention of its commercials? The 30 seconds of space that advertisers spend millions on every year had viewers quite entertained. Perhaps the most laughable is Taco Bell's elderly group escaping the retirement home for a night of fun. On the other hand, a controversial one included Volkswagen's 'Get Happy' theme that featured corporate Americans urging others to 'Chill, Mon!' in their best imitations of a Jamaican accent. Commercials might not have stolen the show last night, but they definitely caused quite a stir.
Overall, the big game offered a little bit of something for everyone. Its safe to say that the most memorable moments will be talked about in the coming days by not just football fans and commentators, but everyone in between.
