Yesterday’s press conference was further proof that Sunday is a Beyoncé concert with a little bit of athletic competition on the side. With all that’s been said–and repeatedly questioned–about her potential lip-synching last week, along with the halftime show’s ability to ignite minor scandals family-first viewers can’t seem to let go of (wave hello, M.I.A.!) we thought it was only to fair to compose of list of things that could happen during the big show–as well a handful of dream scenarios we desperately hope will come true, but are willing to settle for having play out in our twisted minds until the end of time.
We’re still a few days away from kickoff, so why not play along at home? Do your homework, keep track of this list during the show, and tell us if we are brilliant or simply outstanding for putting this all together come Monday morning.
After being front and center of an international, Beyontroversiallip-synching scandal last week, Beyoncé decided this afternoon was the right time to address the haters who accused her of mouthing along to the lyrics of our National Anthem. However, being the King that she is, she didn’t wait for some silly reporter from Access Hollywood to ask her a question about it. Instead, she opened up her nationally televised press conference this afternoon by straight up BELTING the lyrics to the “Star Spangled Banner” in front of a hot mic and a room full of reporters.
To demonstrate that she wasn’t singing along to a pre-recorded track (which she would later admit that she did last week), she made Francis Scott Key and the entire populous of the United States of America proud by bellowing out some of her patented, powerhouse vocal runs and spontaneously emphasizing certain phrases (“THE BOMBS!”). She then went on to wrap up her performance in the most shadeworthy fashion imaginable, simply by declaring, “ANY QUESTIONS?”

We would’ve been happy if, at that point, Bey pulled the ole *DROPS MIC* routine and simply sashayed out of the room, middle finger in the air, not answering a single question LIKE A BAWSE. However, being the well-choreographed and proper Methodist girl that she is, she DID field a few Qs from the intrepid reporters on hand (including one, we’re not kidding, ABOUT HER TOOTHBRUSH?!?!).
