Beyonce's electric Superbowl show

In the wake of Beyonce’s ‘Mimegate’ appearance at President Obama’s inauguration, all eyes were on the sultry superstar as she took on the half time show at the Superbowl – this biggest annual television event in the US.

And the general consensus was that she nailed it. More than 5.5million tweets were sent during Beyoncé's set as stars from all walks of stage and screen took to the Twittosphere to lavish praise on her performance. So rapturous was the reception, that when the power in the stadium cut during the second half of the game in New Orleans, many jokingly attributed it to the overwhelming voltage of her set.

Husband Jay Z took to Twitter to say : 'Lights out!!! Any questions??'

Beyonce fans were treated to the spectacle of Destiny's Child reunited after Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland suddenly appeared on stage in the middle of Beyonce’s solo flow and belted out some of the band’s classics.

Alicia Keys, who was drafted in on national anthem duty before the game tweeted; 'Beautiful note from @beyonce!! Big Love 2 @KELLYROWLAND & @realmichelleW 1 of my Favorite parts of the show!!! Still on 10!! #SB47 ;-)'

The stars seemed to be in full blown gush mode

Justin Timberlake: Yes, B. Yes. Roasted that… #KINGBEY.'

P Diddy: 'King B is my f**kin Hero!!! #KillinIt.'

Demi Lovato: 'Y’all can keep watching the game but I think it's safe to say Beyonce just won the Super Bowl.'

Michelle Obama: 'Watching the #SuperBowl with family & friends. @Beyonce was phenomenal!.'

Samuel L. Jackson: I’m in the DON’T GIVE A F**K IF IT’S PRE-RECORDED OR NOT club!! B’s putting’ in WURK!!!!

Alec Baldwin: Destiny’s Child blew the power out with their curling irons…

Jesse Tyler Ferguson: The opener & closer to the amazing Beyonce concert tonight was kinda boring. Not much singing. Just a lot of running around & falling down.

Oprah: BEYONCE!!!!!!!!!!!!

So it went well then.
