It's already being called one of the greatest Super Bowls ever played and Beyonce's halftime performance wasn't that far behind. The singer performed solo and with her old bandmates from Destiny's Child in a 12-minute masterpiece. Even The New York Times was impressed, saying of Beyonce, "she balanced explosions and humanity, imperiousness with warmth, an arena-ready sense of scale with a microscopic approach to the details of her vocals."
