The Super Bowl halftime show has hit some rough patches in recent years, but this year’s performance couldn’t miss with Beyoncé as the headliner. 

With catchy beats, excellent lyrics and incredible pipes, it's difficult to find many people who do not enjoy the diva's music. Throw in an incredible set and great costumes, and this show certainly did not disappoint. 

All the hits were in the lineup. Beyoncé delivered fantastic renditions of "Halo," "Love on Top" and "Single Ladies," and few fans were left waiting for their favorite tune. 

The first half of the actual game was not all that competitive or entertaining, which put the pressure on Beyoncé to deliver. She knocked it out of the park, and here are some of the top tweets reacting to her performance.
