As soon as she first opened her mouth to do an almost-a cappella bit of "Love on Top," one thing was clear: Beyoncé was singing live.
And that was the case for the rest of her dynamic, divalicious Super Bowl halftime show.
Indeed, by the time Beyoncé slowed it down for the last number, "Halo," you could hear her running out of breath a bit from all the energetic, intricate choreography.
To make it further evident that this was not a repeat of her lip-synching the national anthem at the inauguration two weeks ago, she also punctuated her performance with many exhortations of the crowd for obvious effect.

She's calling the shots!
As anticipation builds for her Super Bowl XLVII halftime show on Sunday, Beyoncé has posted another photo of herself on her Tumblr – this time as a sexy NFL referee.
Sort of. She also seems to be running the ball ... in stiletto, thigh-high leather boots.
While the the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers take a breather from their game, it's safe to say that all eyes will be on Beyoncé after a controversy erupted over her possibly lip-synching the National Anthem at the presidential Inauguration.

Are they or aren't they?
Fans of Destiny's Child may be wondering where Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams will be at the Super Bowl halftime show.
While Beyoncé has posted photos of her rehearsals for the big performance, Williams says reports of a reunion for the pop group are merely unconfirmed rumors – and that they're "not true."
"I'm going to be in the musical Fela!," she told WRUG Media in a recent interview. "I hate to disappoint the people and tell them that it's not true."

A decade ago, Michelle Williams sang about being a "survivor" – but in fact, she's only recently found her way through the darkness.
"I've dealt with depression," the singer and actress, 32, tells the Associated Press. "I had to choose to get out of bed and do whatever I needed to do to be happy."
Williams first suffered from the mental health disorder as a teen, but managed to recover without the use of medication thanks to therapy, exercise and positive thinking.

"She was born to be a mother," Kelly Rowland added at the show, which will air Feb. 13. She's wonderful."
