Beyonce’s ‘Superbowl Halftime’ Show A Ratings Winner, Second Only To Madonna

Published: Tuesday 5th Feb 2013 by Rashad

Looks like girls still run the world!

As expected, fans tuned into Superbowl XLVII in droves to see the televised return to stage of pop queen Beyonce.  For, reports have it the ‘Me, Myself, & I’ maestra drew in a jaw-dropping 104 million viewers for her 14-minute Halftime set.

Now, while news indicates that the reported 104 million is not the final tally (which will not be revealed until later this week), experts do assume once numbers are crunched that the figure will not be far from today’s listing.

The set gives the songstress another accolade to add to her already impressive count.  But, while besting the numbers of many of the historic stage’s previous showings, it is still Queen of Pop Madonna‘s 2012 showing that reigns supreme with its whopping 112 million viewers.  (source)

    Those are not final numbers, HOWEVER, with all the GIMMICKS & controversy she did she should have TOPPED Madonna

    But just like old Madge, her album will flop as well

    They are both washed


    • KING RIHANNA>BEYONCE February 6, 2013

      Um lies babes she only drew in 95 million and thats what nbc cnn and the view said.

    • HIVE February 6, 2013

      Well if she came in at #2 at least her and Rihanna will finally have something in common

      seeing how Most of Rihanna’s career his albums always peak at #2

      and don’t play that “Unapologetic” card… as quickly as that album peaked was as quickly as it dropped.

      Also I find it Funny how Rihanna never gets interviews, or blog press unless it has something to do with the drama surrounding his relationship… if that’s what you call a relationship…. Rihanna will never do anything a Legend worthy… only a current pop icon like Katy Parry… nope I take that back Katy has had multiple #1 albums… not 6 top 10’s lol

      • THE GREAT LACEFRONCE. February 6, 2013

        HUSH H**!

    • truth(slayer of icki funky ass stans B****!!) February 6, 2013

      B**** y dont u stfu!

    • SDF February 6, 2013

      If Rihanna learns how to dance in a year it would be cool—but clapping your p*ssy isn’t really a dance.

      • KING RIHANNA>BEYONCE February 6, 2013

        But p**** popping and dropping it low with uour p**** hanging out is dancing tho? No what ciara and jlo and janet does is dancing!

    • MaZ February 6, 2013

    • truth(slayer of icki funky ass stans B****!!) February 6, 2013

      H** please. 116 watch the game 104 the half time…dayum u a hata!

  3. Kate Middleton feels sorry for (Blue Gorilla) February 6, 2013

    ewwww!!! beyawnce looks like a man, i can almost see a moustache coming through. “31” my b***, she looks like a 40+ yro tranny.

    back to topic…

    more people tuned in to watch Madg halftime show than the actual game and people tuned out when beyFRAUD showed up

    • HIVE February 6, 2013

      And even less people showed up to Rihanna’s 777 tour and the ones before that…

  4. Monstarebel February 6, 2013

    Madonna had the better show IMO so she deserves it…. I was shocked n surprised when it came to Madonna performance her set alone slayed….

    • ANTHONY February 6, 2013

      HANDS DOWN!!

    • Music Soul Harmony February 6, 2013


    • RICHANDBLACK11 February 6, 2013

      i beg to differ….madonna was mostly props

    • Remix February 6, 2013

      Madonna has just a fantastic staging, but the performance is average imo

  5. THE GREAT LACEFRONCE. February 6, 2013

    Mainstream white America is saying this BLEACHed whale looked like a stripper and was inappropriate to millions of families watching with their kids

    “I half-expected a stripper pole to pop out of the platform, which was actually staged to look like a peep show. ”

    All commentators from Abc News to Huffington Post agree that she was only missing a stripper pole in her performance

    • Touché February 6, 2013

      Hmm…. Your comment seems exactly like something Sybil would say…

      • THE GREAT LACEFRONCE. February 6, 2013


      • ADC143 February 6, 2013

        I know, right. That “white America” line just blew its cover. 😆 The crack baby just exposed itself!

      • Touché February 6, 2013

        ADC143, lmao! Agreed.

    • truth(slayer of icki funky ass stans B****!!) February 6, 2013


    • Eye Candy February 6, 2013

      White America also said it was inappropriate for Alicia Keys to sit while performing the national anthem. Does that mean they’re right? No.
      BTW they had the same complaints for Madonna’s performance last year.

      • Jessi February 8, 2013

        Exactly. Last year they were throwing Madonna all kinds of shade.

  6. Touché February 6, 2013

    Sam that’s great but how long are you going to keep talking about this? Why not talk about her upcoming album or something?

  7. ADC143 February 6, 2013


    • THE GREAT LACEFRONCE. February 6, 2013


      • Touché February 6, 2013

        Lies! I caught you red handed with one of your comments!

      • THE GREAT LACEFRONCE. February 6, 2013

        The only thing you caught was a deadly case of A.I.D.S
        🙁 🙂

      • Touché February 6, 2013

        That just proves it. Your definitely Sybil in your many disguises.

      • Bryan Dossome February 6, 2013

        I wonder why someone would need multiple usernames just to say the same old s***

      • Likica February 6, 2013

        Nope, Lacefronce is a different person, he/she’s been here more than you for sure. His legendary comments with Bleachonce, Tranny CaCa, Rihfund, ManDonna, Titty Gimmick Perry, Pigriah Scary, Ci-Error, H** HUSH, Your opinion is s*** and h** you will deal are widely known on this site. 😀

      • HALF AMAZIN February 6, 2013

        I definitely think Kelly, Kate Middleton, Wrinkle Flop Whora, and Sybil are the same person. The Great Lacefronce be trippin in a totally different way and its funny as s*** sometimes! Multiple people can mention that white America b******* but doesn’t make it the same person

    • Remix February 6, 2013

      well, I propose to keep only one name : TROLLLLLLLL

  8. Mr. Bradshaw February 6, 2013

    impressive. I enjoyed every minute of Beyonce’s show.

    i enjoyed Madonna half time show too. Mostly the beginning when she stormed out on that chariot. and i like her catalog of older songs. I still hate that song she did with NIcki tho.

    But 104 million is nothing to sneeze at. Congrats Bey!

  9. BeyFRAUD Armstrong (Beyonce’s Weave) February 6, 2013

    Her (Beyonce) new nose doesn’t suit her, she looks more East Indian than white (she wants to be white). Her obsession with being white is prevalent in her photo-shopped pictures of herself, where she shrinks her fat thunder thighs.

    Beyonce knows nothing about couture and high fashion. Her outfit at the Superbowl looked like a Walmart George brand designed by Jessica Simpson. Her her was a mess, and she looked fat with fat thunder thighs.

    Her vocals were a mess too, she screeched the whole performance and lip synched Halo. For someone who the hood-hive claimed had a better performance than Madonna, her ratings BOMBED big. The difference between Madge’s ratings and Beyonce’s is a whopping 17%, MAJOR FLOP.

    This reminds me of how FOX killed the X-Factor last season, from starting with a strong 12 million, they bombed to 6-7 million, easily beaten by the Voice.

    As it stands, Beyonce is a representation of everything black women should not strive to be, LAZY, THIEF, ILLITERATE and SELF-HATING.

    • ADC143 February 6, 2013

      Careful there, you flea-bitten horse. TGJ might reject ANOTHER one of your comments! 😆 That was your warning. The next step could be banishment. 😀

      • BeyFRAUD Armstrong (Beyonce’s Weave) February 6, 2013

        Why??? Because I have an opinion?? People have said worst things about Rihanna and Samantha brushes it off because he hates Rihanna.

        So Samantha will silence my opinions simply because he hates Rihanna?? And you support this??? LMAO you’re so simple minded.

    • Kate Middleton feels sorry for (Blue Gorilla) February 6, 2013

      beyawnce knows nothing about fashion, she always looks cheap and ghetto. she thinks just because something, has a big price tag its the way to go; she doesn’t know that designers are human being too and are bound to make mistakes….. that’s okay i guess beyawnce picks up and buys their mistakes. lol!!!

      • truth(slayer of icki funky ass stans B****!!) February 6, 2013

        Ur jealousy is sad u b****. #thehateisreal

  10. Southern State of Mind February 6, 2013

    Not the biggest Bey fan, but those ratings are nothing to frown upon. Congrats, miss lady 😉

  11. BeyFRAUD Armstrong (Beyonce’s Weave) February 6, 2013

    Samantha is grasping for straws, Beyonce’s ratings were a FLOP compared to the queen Madonna.

    More people tuned in to see Madonna’s performance than the Superbowl, contrast that with Beyonce. More people tuned off Beyonce’s show than the Superbowl, that is not winning, that is a FLOP.

    • : : . W A T E R S P O R T S February 6, 2013

      rating->S were –>A<– flop, huh?

    • truth(slayer of icki funky ass stans B****!!) February 6, 2013

      Crazy b****!

  12. JOSE February 6, 2013

    i thought mj had the most watched halftime show with 135 million?

    • KING RIHANNA>BEYONCE February 6, 2013

      He did sam lies!!

      • truth(slayer of icki funky ass stans B****!!) February 6, 2013

        I thought he was talkn bout FEMALES.

  13. My Forehead Tho February 6, 2013

    Madonna has been around for centuries. That b**** is old as hell and has the biggest fan base second to Michael Jackson.

    Beyonce being second to her is a huge compliment to Bey. When Beyonce is 53, she’ll have a similar fan base.

    For the navi though, y’all should sit the f*** down and stfu cuz Rihanna’s ass will NEVER headline a superbowl. Facts

    • Bryan Dossome February 6, 2013

      Who said fan bases increases with age????i don’t get your arithmetic and stop trying to fuel a stan war,this has nothing to do with Rih

    • KING RIHANNA>BEYONCE February 6, 2013


    • truth(slayer of icki funky ass stans B****!!) February 6, 2013

      Lmao! The madge shade is real

  14. Bryan Dossome February 6, 2013

    Are you still talking about the superbowl???With all due respect,that game ended like 3 days ago,people are getting prepared for another season already….move on

    • danny b February 6, 2013

      No one’s talking about the game delusional ass. Tried it.

      • Music Soul Harmony February 6, 2013


    • Oh Yeah!!! February 6, 2013

      That is how bey does it. She SHUTS it down and has people talking weeks after!

  15. BeyFRAUD Armstrong (Beyonce’s Weave) February 6, 2013

    Why would Rihanna want to headline the Superbowl when that thing is only relevant to Americans? No one outside America even knows what the Superbowl is or who played. They do not even know the names of the Quarterbacks or even what that is.

    Rihanna is an INTERNATIONAL artist, I would rather she gets the World Cup than the Superbowl. Who gives a f*** about the Superbowl besides Americans?

    And dead at Armstrong’s fans thinking Beyonce was winning when, according the ratings, more people switched off their TVs when she came on and turned them back on when the game started again, that is not winning, THAT IS A FLOP.

    It’s so funny when people do not see just how hilarious this is, when people switch off their TVs when you show up on stage and switch them back on when the game resumes (according to the ratings) LMAO.

    • truth(slayer of icki funky ass stans B****!!) February 6, 2013

      Tooooo dumb of a comment to slay u for

  16. BeyFRAUD Armstrong (Beyonce’s Weave) February 6, 2013

    Anyway f*** the Superbowl, where is the new single?? Rihanna and Katy Perry have already booked their explosive 10 week #1, where is your single fat-ass???

    Artpop and The Pink Print will also be out this year, more chart slayage. Oh and Britney will also have an album out this year (scream and shout is snatching wigs), I can see why Fattie Bey is scared to release that single. The competition is just too stiff this year and she cannot cope.

    • Kate Middleton feels sorry for (Blue Gorilla) February 6, 2013

      beyawnce is the KING of push backs, the KING of the scaredy cats and of course the KIMG of thieves.

    • irene46 February 6, 2013

      beyonce afraid of britney?!! not even in your wildest…

  17. NEW KID IN HERE February 6, 2013

    Congratulation to bey that show was spectacular!!! But lol @ the delusional hive who were saying bey’s ratings were higher than that of Queen Madge!!

    That’s why I don’t like the hive, bey does something great and they go and drag legends just to prove that she’s one of them!!…let her work do that not you falsified comments!

    • truth(slayer of icki funky ass stans B****!!) February 6, 2013

      Then u must HATE madge, katy, rhi and caca stans…B****

  18. Kate Middleton February 6, 2013

    for a show sponsored by Pepsi and all that hype we thought it was going to blow planktons out of the water

    but it looked cheap, low budget, no creativity. anybody can do those light work at their own concert.

    zero crestivity only the same typical predictable junk.

    stans keep saying “Michael never changed either” he doesn’t have to he is timeless and his music, songs are timeless considering he wrote he major big hit except for thriller. beyawnce is boring and ghetto, her music, songs are ghetto and GARBAGE. it only worked as a fad but she played the heck out if it and it wore off to death.

    Rihanna might be putting out albums every year but at least it gives her plenty to choose from and her versatility helps, whereas beYAWNce is stuck with the old dated ghetto anthems.

    your “KING”-“QUEEN” is nothing but smoke & mirrors.

    • BeyFRAUD Armstrong (Beyonce’s Weave) February 6, 2013

      She had no hits at the Superbowl, she fed us predictable Single Ladies and Crazy in Love ghetto anthems. No one even knows what the other songs were and on her tour, she is going to perform Single Ladies again, that’s the only thing she knows. Oh and open with Crazy in Love.

      She has no creativity, no hits, no versatility (her horrible Jamaican accent, b**** you’re not from the Islands like Onika and Robyn). She is FAKE FAKE FAKE and is so over.

      Where is the f****** new single???

      • Bryan Dossome February 6, 2013

        I see haters demanding for a single,that could only mean they were WOWED by beyonce’s halftime show

      • irene46 February 6, 2013

        wasn’t ‘single ladies’ a huge hit?

      • truth(slayer of icki funky ass stans B****!!) February 6, 2013

        U love bey b****

    • RoyalKev February 6, 2013

      ^ Yeah, S.L. only sold 5 million and have been a consistent seller for the last 4+ years. Lol @ people complaining about Bey performing her hits, isn’t that what EVERY artists does. Some singers from the 80’s/90’s only have 1 or 2 that their known for and they still celebrate those songs now!

      Heck, Cyndi Lauper has a new reality show and ‘Girls Just Want To Have Fun’ is the theme song for it! A big hit never gets old!

      • truth(slayer of icki funky ass stans B****!!) February 6, 2013

        Ignore these hoez honey. All deze b**** hatas. Micheal, Prince, Janet, Diana, U2, Bruce Sprinsting ALL PERFORMED older songs and not new so these c**t just LOOKN for s*** to say.

      • KING RIHANNA>BEYONCE February 6, 2013

        But wfl has sold 15 million tho worldwide keep your single ladies and umbrella has sold 10 million worldwide hell ltwyl sold 17 million worldwide. And RIHANNA gave jayz his first global hit

  19. antertain February 6, 2013

    Madonna is a super trend setting legend so that doesn’t surprise me at all.
    I liked her halftime show a lot and loved Beys.

    Madge is/was a mega MEGA star at her peak and although her music won’t sell like before, her name alone is BOX OFFICE.

    Well done Bey for drawing such a huge audience. Now gotta take advantage of the buzz.

    • Common Sense February 6, 2013

      Never count legends out. Remember 2005? Confessions on a Dance Floor and Emancipation of Mimi brought back two legends that had been written off.

    Impressive dont care abt the no of people that watched it about the entertainment which she served madonna didnt sing live and dance harder than bey but i enjoyed her like a prayer perf.
    Also i never wanted bey to do Cil but i was impressed with the way she spiced up the choreography wish end of time was longer too pls have constructive criticism most here just hate and take it personal.

    • Kate Middleton feels sorry for (Blue Gorilla) February 6, 2013

      beyawnce lipped too, when she wasn’t her backup was doing all the work and she mainly did the screaming.

    • Common Sense February 6, 2013

      I like Beyonce and her performance, but lets not pretend she was singing her ass off during her show. She sang like 5 words out of every song then danced around asking the audience to sing along to songs they didn’t even know.

      • Music Soul Harmony February 6, 2013

        @common sense 5 words? such exaggerations….

    So amazing why hater came in first on a bey post, staying in line to just to discredit if bey had broken madge sb record they will still have negative stuff to say. Bey only slayed with her root in music (dc) but madonna had all d artist in this world with her on stage so hater again not those keeping it real without hating fall back pls to ur fave post.

  25. Kent February 6, 2013

    Those saying bey performance was boring pls imma need u to state what she should have done differently, debut five new songs? Bring lions to the stage? Walk on water or what she did her songs or what were u expecting bitchies and hater asking for her new singles more than d fan is just pathetic

      But of course you would think that, the only thing you have to compare are those Favela dwellers, singing in some awkward language, banging on some noisy out of tune drums which they got from those crime filled, drug infested Favelas.

      You wouldn’t know a good performance even if it was from a food truck passing by those Favelas. Madonna had the greatest SB performance of all time and you’ll deal.

  34. Beyonce superbowl ratings flop February 6, 2013

    LIar. Black Eyed peas got 110 Mill – even they were bigger than flop ass beyonce. LOL LOL at Peps spending 50 mill. Dont think they expected her to be a ratings flop, pepsi job was TO BOOST ratings, not decrease it. Also, By looks of her wack ass tour, they are not spending this so called 50 million on her tour. Where is the new single? Where are teh cans? Where are the commercials. Was there even really 50 mill, or was it all PR spin to boost her flop comeback. Dont think any one is watchin that wack ass HBO shir, she has proved that she turns VIEWERS OFF.

  36. MISHKA February 6, 2013

    Even though “Like A prayer” and Madge are on my all-time favourites lists, I have to defend Giselle.

    1. I blame the game itself. Last year, there was some real hype about the football teams added to Madonna’s. This year, not so much.

    2. Madonna is white and older. She has fans of all 4 generations.

    3. She invited 300 other singers to join her and that built the hype. That wasn’t a solo performance, that was GLEE.

    Imma stop right there.

    Anyway though, Queen Bey did great and beytches are still mad as h*ll. Be mad at your weak faves for a change.

    Do you know Beyonce quoted “Gone with the wind fabulous” talking about Kelly and Michelle after their performance? Miss Usa is taking that one to the bank, her co-stars will never hear the end of it LOL can’t wait!

    • Gurl Please February 6, 2013

      Madonna only shared the stage with 2 WORLDWIDE artists, Nicki and LMFAO. Cee Lo and MIA are more local and don’t have much massive appeal. Nobody knew until that night, either. That’s not hype boo that’s called surprise. Nobody knew what she was going to do you had to tune in just to see, and best believe anyone on the stage with her were adding to HER songs, not the other way around. She wasn’t going around saying “HEY EVERYONE! JUST WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE NICKI AND LMFAO WITH ME ON THAT STAGE! TUNE IN PLEASE!”. Hype would be what Beyonce did, by posting pics and teasing the public. Madonna did none of that. B**** rolled out of bed, did a short press conference the day before and pulled in the most ratings ever for a halftime show ever. She got more viewers than the damn game itself. Respect her, the true and only Queen. With that being said it makes me wonder just how much more Madonna could have pulled in had she actually hyped her own show, she kept it all top secret and didn’t say one word to anyone. Just how it should be!

      • MISHKA February 6, 2013

        Gurl please… your name says it all.

        Don’t take your ignorance for fact. It was announced who would join Madonna on stage and she did interviews about her performance, it’s in the contract. She famously dissed Janet on one of these interviews. Where were you last year, under a rock or something?

        Gur..scratch that, Child Please.

        I’m not even going to comment on the “worldwide artists” thing. Nope.

    • RoyalKev February 6, 2013

      ^ People seem to have selective memory, Madge went around building hype by dissing Janet & Gaga everywhere she was able to attention before the Superbowl.

    • Common Sense February 6, 2013

      Taking a cue from you “gurl please” why is race ALWAYS brought up like it matters? Don’t use that tired ass excuse anymore. Secondly Beyonce had guests of her own that served as her backup dancers. Blame Bey for not being creative enough to use her guests in a new more entertaining way instead of falling back to her typical Single Ladies routine.

    Even as a fan i have to be honest and say Madonna did have the best OVERALL Performance. Even though she clearly lipsynched the whole show and she obviously cant dance!!(Yes i know she’s old) The stage alone slayed me, the set and her stage presence!! The overall CONCEPT was original and better!! But beyonce’s performance was alot more exciting to me! Probably because im more of a beyonce fan than madonna!

      Finally, an HONEST Beyonce fan.

    • ƸӜƷ MC ƸӜƷ February 6, 2013

      I agree with this.

  38. Remey February 6, 2013

    I thought Bey did a great job. Her setup was based on pure performance. It was exciting, but all the efforts went into her. I agree with other people, Madonna had efforts go into everything: the stage, the music, the dancing, the song selection, the guest appearances.

    Bey had a weak song selection. I was disappointed with her ending with Halo. I was also disappointed with her DC song selections too. Although he stage wasn’t elaborate, she made up for it with her strong performance.

    Madonna had so much hype with her performance to every last detail. While some may argue that she lip synched, you have to give it up that it was a fun performance that was memorable.

    Well done to both ladies.

  39. the real xoxo February 6, 2013

    I only liked the entrance and ending of Madonna’s performance.
    I prefer Beyonce’s.

    But on another not…..This era is hiding something.

    Where are the Bey Pepsi Cans?
    That new single?
    And the tour was released before album details?

    With all of the “Royalty” promo shootings, this looks like a refocus on 4. I’m worried that this is a continuation of 4 in some sense. Because honestly, this is not how a Bey era normally starts off.

    Bey normally begins with a fire song and a stunning visual to follow. She comes out of hiding and makes appearances everywhere. We’ve seen her at the Inauguration and now the Superbowl, but let’s be honest…. why would you pass up on a opportunity to debut new music on the Superbowl.? You literally have the whole world watching! It’s PR heaven. Something just doesn’t seem right.

      I would say she is gearing a Greatest Hits, or top 10-20hits… she is about to bow out, she did state by 30 she wanted to retire.

      “With all of the “Royalty” promo shootings, this looks like a refocus on 4. I’m worried that this is a continuation of 4 in some sense. Because honestly, this is not how a Bey era normally starts off.”

      I was saying this the day of the superbowl. The management is OFF already. She barely started, yet its a mess. She had the biggest stage and didn’t debut her single, the promo pics and video is the exact same as “King B” during 4 era……etc.

      Not everyone can be a self-management and be successful.

  41. Bigger Scale! February 6, 2013

    Okay… So these deluded people who keep calling Beyonce a FLOP?

    Don’t judge on ratings… They can change for many reasons, Teams, ect…

    Now, look, Madonna has had like 15+ years more career than Beyonce. She been in the game over double the time Beyonce has…

    Yet… Beyonce has almost DOUBLE the grammys that Madonna has?

    Grammys are the best award you can achieve for your music….

    So MADONNA is in the game over DOUBLE the time Beyonce is.. Yet has almost half the amount of grammys? less nominations?

    Kinda sad really..

    That and MADONNA LIP SYNCED HER HALF TIME SHOW!!! How can you say it was a better performance when she lip synced the whole thing?!!!

    • : : . W A T E R S P O R T S February 6, 2013

      Let me tell you something…

      1- Grammys =/= a s***.

      2- Madonna isn’t about VOCALS, she’s all about FASHION and VISUALS <<< which, as you and me know, Beyonce's show LACKED.

      3- Beyonce will never be on the level of MADONNA.

      Maybe she's outwealthing her in a few years, but she'll never be on her level of creativity.

      و دمتم سالمين…

    • Common Sense February 6, 2013

      The Grammys are a joke, and they lost their credibility long ago. As for vocals, can you even consider Beyonce’s 5-6 words per song singing? She literally danced the entire 14 minutes with the occasional vocal thrown in here and there.

  42. danny b February 6, 2013

    I guess thats why after Bey’s performance all of Bey’s albums and singles rose on iTunes and are sitting comfortably. But stans of Rihfloppa wouldnt know what the term longevity would look like even if it was in their face.

    • KING RIHANNA>BEYONCE February 6, 2013


  43. ANDY February 6, 2013

    Whats with the lies…

    She got between 95 -100 Million.

    Not damn 104Million…

    Also, her ratings decreased compared to the game

    • KING RIHANNA>BEYONCE February 6, 2013

      Thank you!! Spill that truth tea

  44. RoyalKev February 6, 2013

    Oh, those numbers are horrible and having the second most watched show in Superbowl halftime history is just soooo awful! SMH @ these haters! The standard they’ve place on Beyonce continue to reach new impossible highs! All you can do is laugh now!

    • KING RIHANNA>BEYONCE February 6, 2013

      Um sam lies like all f***

  45. MissImpartial February 6, 2013

    Only 95 million watched halftime show and 182 million watched the game!! That means people turned the channel on Bey! Even with all the hype she still couldn’t match Madonna or Prince or MJ!!

    • Music Soul Harmony February 6, 2013

      u inflated the game

  46. follow me @royalkings101 February 6, 2013

  47. lol February 6, 2013

    Madonna show was much BETTER!

  48. 21st CENTURY SLAYER February 6, 2013

    WTF yall trying to act like Bey didnt slay. If she got 95 million then thats alot. I dont usually keep up with all that silly s*** but that seems like alot of numbers to me. I need for yall to sit okay.

  49. Nadine February 6, 2013

    Im sorry Beyonce was wayyy better than Madonna Im not even a stan, but of course Madge would top her figures shes been around decades longer so has entire extra generation or even two that would watch! Beyonce did extremly well. Main reason people are saying Madonna was better is cos they were expecting something different from BEYONCE. But performance wise, Beyonce killed it! Madonnas stage was better thats about it!

    • Music Soul Harmony February 6, 2013


  50. just sayin February 6, 2013

    where is beyonces new single? i heard her album is being released in april and that’s when her tour starts right? where’s the single?????????

  51. Gabz February 6, 2013

    Madonna is the f****** queen of pop of course BeyBey wasnt gonna top Madonna she has yeeaars on Beyonce! Stop trying to put Beyonce down at any opportunity people she did very well and she performed her heart out. Im sure her main focus wasnt to top f****** Madonna and MJ! But she did her generation proud! She put on a great show! Shes the queen of performing for her generation and Im pretty neutral, just being honest here. Only person that could compete with her on the performance front is Pink. But on a serious note, how much did Janet get im just wondering?

  52. Yolo February 6, 2013

    Madonnas show was a hot damn mess I cant stand these bandwagoners. Yall hella stupid if u think Bey was gonna top her viewing figures and that not discrediting Bey because she has plenty of pull for the stage she is at now but Madonna is Madonna.

  53. Music Soul Harmony February 6, 2013

    King MJ outdid them both. That’s why I love him. His Fanbase is very diverse. Didn’t like madonna’s performance more than bey’s though. But that just personal preference and taste! And funny how ppl like to discredit America and saying the SB doesn’t matter but it’s still one of the biggest countries where news makes headlines internationally. Our population and media is pretty big so don’t act we’re not a big deal when this site is obsessed with American singers and music anyway and it’s UK oriented. NEXT.

  54. DIGGER BEY February 6, 2013

    F*ck that. KING B SLAYED Mandonna! Mandonna only had a creative stage. She did that just to take the pressure off singing live. If KING B would’ve put more efforts n costumes and elorabates stage props, she would’ve slayed Mandonna stage wise too. Mandoona wish could put on a performance like KING B’S. Everybody from Government officials to Hollywood are saying KING B had the best SB performance ever. Most put her up their with MJ and Prince but not better than theirs. Mandonna don’t have stigma to dance and sing @ the same time like KING B. And I expect the final numbers to move up from 104 million n the final #s. Madoonna is Flop H**. She’s not even relevant unless she’s on tour. KING B will go straight to #1 once that single get released. It won’t b like Flop Candy. How can u b The queen of pop and have the best SB rating ever and FLOPPPPPPPPP lmaooooooo. #2013………THE YEAR OF BEYONCE

    • Music Soul Harmony February 6, 2013


  55. DIGGER BEY February 6, 2013

    These bandwagon Mandoona fans won’t to b all slick but didn’t Mandoona flop. That was suppose to b her biggest tv audience but it seems to me people were not impress. Because if they were. They would’ve not let Hard Flop go -200 on the charts. Where were y’all when Hardy Candy went double sh*t? If she slayed, why didn’t nobody buy her single and album? KING B single will blow bishes backs out. It so obvious who had the best show………..BEYONCE GISELLE F*CKIN KNOWLES CARTER! THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME! #2013……..THE YEAR OF BEYONCE

  56. DIGGER BEY February 6, 2013

    Mandoona is a Gimmick B****. That’s why her album flop after her SB performance because The Music Gods were not impress and neither was the public bwahahahahahahahahahahaahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahhahahaha KING B IS THE NEW AND UNDISPUTED QUEEN OF POP! NO FEMALE CAN TOP HER RITE NOW PERFORMING! MJ never like Mandoona anyway. But he did have a crush on THE QUEEEEEEEEEEEEEN. And it so funny that singers from the world of pop said KING B had the best show ever. Shouldn’t they have said it wasn’t better than Mandoona’s. Because isn’t she the so called ” Queen of Pop”. Nobody is stupid like u delusional h*** on here. Everybody and they grandma said KING B OWNED ALL! Like she will do @ The Grammys and thru out this year. GET READY FOR MORE EPIC SLAYAGE! #2013………THE YEAR OF BEYONCE

  57. RICHANDBLACK11 February 6, 2013

    Beyonce had A better show , Madonna had a better stage.

Smh

  59. SlayDeleAdkins February 6, 2013

    I have always wondered what rihanna would have done if she was to perform! I just made up a set list!! NAVI dont come for me!! this is only for fun!!

    1. Only Girl In The World – (First verse acapella)
    2. What’s My Name (ft drake maybe?)
    3. Reggae Medley – Rude Boy/ Pon De Replay
    4. Party Medley – Don’t stop the music/SOS/Where have you been?/Umbrella
    5. Diamonds
    6. We Found Love (Encore) LOOL!!

    That was really hard!! There’s still songs like, S&M, Disturbia and SUAD!! What do yall think she could perform??

    • SlayDeleAdkins February 6, 2013

      She could perform umbrella fully!!

  60. So What? February 6, 2013

    Yall do realize that the 104 million was because the super bowl is the most watched program in the US? Why act like 104 million tuned in to watch a beyonce concert?

  61. Suicide Blonde February 6, 2013

    And this site call Beyonce Pop Queen in the nose of MADONNA, the desilution of this site man, i just can’t, anyaway Madonna is the greatest musician Alive, the most important, the best selling artist alive, the badass chick in the game.

  62. oh baby (b****** will Deal with slayonces slayage) February 6, 2013

    Why ofcourse, Beyoncé was born for greatness. Madonna had better staging and props but the lip syncing and lukeluster performance was a no-go. Beyoncé on the other hand had a much simpler stage and made the show all about her talent and not her creativity set wise. Both amazing but Madonna was queen of her time. Beyoncé reigns supreme now. Now is her time. No one’s better. Female Michael Jackson. See y’all at the mrs Carter show world tour 😉 plus did y’all hear that little snippet of her new material on the commercial for the tour? SLAYYYY

  63. PRINCE MACHIAVEL February 6, 2013

    Weeellll It’s A Good Thing Cause Your Majesty Madge’s Show Was Waaaaayyyy Better!

    Yeeeeeeessssss The Ultimate Queen Madge Wins And You Lazy Unoriginal B****** Will Just…………………………………………………Euuuh F****** Deal Haha!!!!!!

  64. Torre February 6, 2013

    Madonna Reigns Yet again!!! No one will Top the Queen of Pop. Give it another 15 years, then maybe but for now. Madonna still kicks ass! Great Half time shows Ladies but Madonna’s was much better in terms of antics and showmenship!

  65. Um ok February 7, 2013

    I love Beyonce but Madonna’s halftime show was just bigger, more exciting, more layered…it took you on a trip whereas Beyonce was just kind of dancing and having the audience sing into her mic, which is cool but can’t really compare to the spectacle of Madonna’s halftime show.

  66. Jessi February 8, 2013

    Beyonce’s performance was based on talent alone. Sure she could have had better staging, props, and other popular artist beside her… but she didn’t. And of course she didn’t top Madonnas ratings smdh. Madonna has been in the game for over 30 years… She’s a vet in the game! The fact that Beyonce’s number’s come 2nd to Madonna’s and third overall (MJ 1st, Madonna 2nd) that is commendable. She’s by far one of the best/if not the best performer of our generation… just giving props when props are due.
