Last week it was rumoured that Beyoncé will reunite with her Destiny’s Child band mates during her Super Bowl XLVII halftime show performance on Feb. 3.

According to Us Weekly, the 31-year-old singer may open the show with her 2003 solo debut single “Crazy In Love” and then launch into a medley of DC tunes with Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams like “Bills, Bills, Bills," "Survivor," and their new track "Nuclear."

However, Williams denies that a reunion will happen at the Super Bowl, saying, “That's not confirmed. It is rumoured. I'm gonna be in the musical ‘Fela!.’ I hate to disappoint the people and tell them that it's not true."

While we support the appearance of “Crazy In Love” and “Survivor” in Beyoncé’s Super Bowl set list, there are a few other tunes that we think would be awesome to hear during the show.

Solo Beyoncé

When it comes to Beyoncé as her alter ego Sasha Fierce, which she “killed” in 2010 because she found a way to “merge the two” together, two songs that instantly come to mind are “Ring The Alarm” and “Diva.”


These two tracks have high-energy, guts and just enough confidence to pump the Super Bowl audience up for the second half of the game.

Beyoncé as a featured artist

While the rumours continue to circulate that DC will reunite at the Super Bowl, we think that Lady Gaga would be an awesome singer to join Beyoncé on stage. (And wouldn't it be amazing if they sang 'Telephone'?)

We notice that Feb. 3 isn’t marked on Gaga's schedule as a show day for her “Born This Way Ball” (as she is currently on tour,) so consider this our official plea for 26-year-old to join Beyoncé and perform their smash hit on Super Bowl Sunday.

Beyoncé with Destiny’s Child

If the rumours are true and DC reunites this Sunday, we’d like to hear "Bootylicious" or “Jumpin’, Jumpin’" instead of the reported “Bills, Bills, Bills.”


We think that this year’s Super Bowl halftime show is the perfect time to bring “Bootylicious” back and would sound great when paired with the 2000 DC classic “Jumpin’, Jumpin’” as opposed to “Bills, Bills, Bills.”

"Bootylicious" peaked at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and seemed to be everywhere back in 2001.
