Celeb of the WeekSuper Bowl XLVII

It’s probably no surprise Beyoncé is named The Daily Aztec’s “Celeb of the Week” after her memorable halftime show at the Super Bowl last Sunday, that left an impression on millions across the country. Her live performance included both old and new favorites such as “Crazy in Love” and “Halo.” Many were surprised when Destiny’s Child singers Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland joined Beyonce onstage for group performances of songs including “Bootylicious” and “Single Ladies.” I think it’s safe to say Beyonce lived up to the crowd’s expectations of a phenomenal halftime show and looked amazing while doing it.
