Michelle Williams has revealed that the reputed Destiny's Child reunion performance at this year's Super Bowl is not going to happen. As one third of the trio, Williams explained in an interview with WRUG radio that the group will not be reuniting at the Mercedes Super Dome in New Orleans on Feb. 3. The singer was quoted telling the station, "It is rumored. I'm gonna be in the musical Fela! I hate to disappoint the people and tell them that it's not true."
This comes as shocking news to the public since numerous reports have stated the contrary, and an alleged set list was released, including some Destiny’s Child favorites. This also seemed like the next likely step for the group, considering the recent release of their song “Nuclear” and their new album, Love Songs, set to drop tomorrow. Fans will surely be disappointed by the news; Destiny’s Child has not performed live since the 2006 NBA All-Star Game, at which they sang "The Star Spangled Banner."
It looks like Beyoncé will take the stage as a one woman act, like usual. However, the contents of her performance are under much speculation, seeing that it was reported by many that the show would feature new Bey material. Since no new Beyoncé tunes have hit the airwaves, is it safe to say that this too is rumor?
Whatever happens during the halftime show, one thing’s certain — after Lady Bey’s inauguration performance, everyone will be watching to see whether or not she’ll be lip synching.
