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.

Super Bowl XLVII is going to be "Jumpin' Jumpin'!"
Following the announcement that Beyoncé and her Destiny's Child bandmates, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, are releasing a new song, the Los Angeles Times reports the three singers will reunite for B's halftime performance.
It will be the first time the women have performed together since 2007. The song "Nuclear" will be on Destiny's Child – Love Songs, a greatest hits compilation of their most romantic recordings, set for release on Jan. 29. It will be their first new material in eight years.

Twenty-six years later, it's time for Ferris Bueller to take another day off.
In what's quickly becoming the most talked-out Super Bowl commercial of the year – a week before it even airs – Matthew Broderick will bring back his old Ferris Bueller character in a new ad for Honda this Sunday night during the NBC telecast.
Auto blog Jalopnik revealed the source of a teaser ad last Friday. So, Honda decided to release the extended version of the commercial online on Monday – and it's a two-minute-plus homage to Ferris Bueller's Day Off, the original 1986 film, with Broderick this time calling in sick to a film shoot and enjoying another day of slacking instead.

The Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers may be basking in the limelight of the biggest football weekend of the year – but they're not the only ones playing ball. And they certainly don't have Hayden Panettiere on their teams.
Celebs like Panettiere, Matthew Morrison (as an assistant coach) and Jerry Ferrara took to the field in Dallas on Saturday for a star-studded game of flag football, hosted by DIRECTV.
The Celebrity Beach Bowl pinned stars like Glee's Chord Overstreet, Gossip Girl's Jessica Szohr and Chace Crawford – who were on Team Spike – agains, True Blood's Joe Manganiello and Josh Duhamel, who made Team Palladia.

Her beloved Baltimore Ravens missed their chance to play for the championship, but Stacy Keibler still has a vested interest in who wins Sunday's Super Bowl.
"I'm absolutely rooting for the Packers," the long-legged actress and Dancing With the Stars alum tells PEOPLE. "But let's be honest, I know nothing about Green Bay ... but it doesn't matter to me, because I hate the Steelers."
For Keibler, 31, her open disdain towards all things black and gold goes further than just being a Baltimore native and a Ravens season ticket holder.

They've remained mum about a wedding date ever since announcing their engagement in December, but that's not stopping Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo from already treating fiancée Candice Crawford's family like … family.
Candice's brother, Gossip Girl actor Chace Crawford, has been partying with the happy couple at pre-Super Bowl parties throughout the week. On Saturday night, Candice's parents joined all of them at an exclusive dinner party hosted by Audi at the Audi Forum Dallas.
"Tony and Chace are already friends," says a source. "They're going to have fun being brothers-in-law."

Die-hard Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers fans will have at least one thing to cheer about together come Sunday: a Super Bowl halftime show by the Black Eyed Peas – whose singer, Fergie, promises will one for the record books.
"It'll be a party in the middle of the game," she promises PEOPLE. "All of the sudden, whether your team is winning or losing, we want to make you have a good time. That's our goal."
With a packed crowd of football fans set to fill Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, Fergie and bandmate Taboo, both 35, are already feeling the "nervous excitement," she says.
