Beyonce Stole The Super Bowl With *That* Performance

Beyonce was the star of the Super Bowl last night, and boy, was everyone talking about that electric performance. 

The 33-year-old made her 2016 return to the spotlight with a bang, taking to Levi’s Stadium at halftime with rows of backing dancers dressed as members of armed rights group the Black Panthers, complete with the black berets the Panthers became known for in the ’60s and ’70s.

Bey then performed new song Formation, which is thought to be a cry for the Black Lives Matter movement – even her backing dancers were seen holding up ‘justice 4 Mario Woods’ signs, a black man shot dead by police in San Francisco in December last year, backstage.

Strong political statement aside, however, the superstar singer was being talked about on Twitter for a whole other reason last night.

Because in the middle of her hugely energetic dance routine, Beyonce nearly took a seriously awkward fall as she stumbled on her mega high heeled boots. Eek!

The mum-of-one was seen jumping into a squat position and attempting to jump up again onto her feet, but nearly stumbled backwards and landed on her bottom just before correcting herself.

And, of course, fans were quick to spot the stumble.

And how did her performance go down? Well, on Twitter Bey was averaging 147,000 tweets a minute, compared to fellow half-time performers Coldplay’s (83,000), and Bruno Mars (28,000).
