Beyonce kicked off the show in New Orleans with a high-energy performance of “Crazy in Love,” complete with an army of leather-bustier-wearing backup dancers.

Beyonce was joined onstage by her Destiny’s Child band mates Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland. Midway through “Baby Boy,” the leather-clad duo rose up from the ground and launched into a performance of “Bootylicious,” followed by “Independent Women.” It was the trio’s first live show together since 2007.The group was branded fierce as ever.
“Thank you for this moment,” a beaming Beyonce told the cheering crowd at the conclusion. “God bless you all.”
Beyonce had promised to sing live at the Super Bowl, acknowledging that she had sung over a pre-recorded version of “The Star-Spangled Banner” at President Barack Obama’s second-term inauguration on January 21.
