Super Bowl halftime show 2016

Beyonce teamed up with Calvin Harris, Coldplay, and Bruno Mars for the halftime show and, despite a little speed wobble at one point, she was sensational, particularly performing new track 'Formation'.  She arrives around 1:30:

The Star-Spangled Banner - 2013

Beyonce opened her press conference in New Orleans by singing the national anthem live.  She admitted she did lip sync singing it on President Obama's Inauguration Day, but it's not clear why as she clearly had the pipes to sing live...

If I Were a Boy - Grammy Awards 2010

She sure knows how to put on a show and the crotch-grabbing, and sheer ballsiness of this performance elevated the song above your standard ballad.

Ring the Alarm - 2006 MTV Video Music Awards

She dropped from the ceiling and performed in a full length trench coat with thigh high boots for most of the performance and managed to sing despite being wrestled by guys in SWAT uniforms.  This one will make you want to dance...

Single Ladies - Glastonbury 2011

Love it or hate it, Single Ladies is probably her biggest it, but it's all about the dance, THAT dance.  And Glastonbury goes wild.

Purple Rain Medley - Grammy Awards 2004

It's Prince and Beyonce and Purple Rain.  What more do you want?
