Destiny's Child Super Bowl setlist revealed
The trio will play a medley of 'Bills, Bills, Bills', 'Survivor' and 'Nuclear' as part of Beyonce's half time show
The songs which Destiny's Child will play as part of Beyonce's Super Bowl performance next month in New Orleans, have been revealed.
The trio – made up of Beyonce, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams – will play a three track medley, consisting of 'Bills, Bills, Bills', 'Survivor' and new song 'Nuclear'.
The performance will take place on February 3 at the Mercedes Benz Superdome.
An 'insider' has also told US magazine that Beyonce will open her set with her 2003 single 'Crazy In Love'. Rowland and Williams will then join her midway through the prestigious half time show.
Controversy is currently surrounding Beyonce after she was accused of miming to the US national anthem during President Obama's inauguration ceremony on Monday (January 21).
According to Entertainment Weekly, a new statement from the Marine Corps Band, who backed her on the day, says that while they did not perform live, they can't say whether Beyonce was singing live or not.
"The Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC) requested that the Marine Band accompany Beyoncé Knowles-Carter in the performance of the Star-Spangled Banner at the 2013 Inaugural Ceremony. However, there was no opportunity for Ms. Knowles-Carter to rehearse with the Marine Band before the Inauguration so it was determined that a live performance by the band was ill-advised for such a high-profile event," the statement reads.
It continues: "Each piece of music scheduled for performance in the Inauguration is pre-recorded for use in case of freezing temperatures, equipment failure, or extenuating circumstances. Regarding Ms. Knowles-Carter's vocal performance, no one in the Marine Band is in a position to assess whether it was live or pre-recorded."
