Rumor: Destiny’s Child to reunite with Beyoncé at Super Bowl

A leaked set list and smiling denial are keeping fans guessing

UNCONFIRMED: That R&B group Destiny’s Child will reunite with Beyoncé during the Super Bowl halftime show


The Super Bowl halftime show always includes some surprise guests (LMFAO in 2012, Usher and Slash in 2011), and this year is unlikely to be an exception. So who will join Beyoncé on stage? Ever since the Queen B was confirmed as the headliner rumors have been circling that Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams will join her to complete a reunion of Destiny’s Child, the R&B group that launched Beyoncé’s career.

Leaked set list?

Us Weekly reports that the reunion is a done deal and goes on to reveal what an anonymous insider says is the signer’s partial set list, with songs including “Crazy In Love,” “Bills, Bills, Bills” and “Survivor.” Still, many other outlets like Vanity Fair and Culture Map speculate that the set list “leak” is merely a publicity stunt designed to draw attention away from the controversy surrounding Beyoncé’s performance and President Barack Obama’s inauguration and her supposedly having lip-synced the “Star Spangled Banner.”

Williams denies reunion

Michelle Williams this week slapped down the reunion rumors, saying “I’m going to be in the musical ‘Fela!’. I hate to disappoint the people and tell them that it (the reunion report) is not true. I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry.” Regardless, as the Inquisitr notes, Williams delivered the denial with a large grin on her face and, meanwhile, Vanity Fair points out that “Fela!”’s official website contains the following message “PLEASE NOTE: Michelle Williams will not be appearing January 31st – 3rd.”
