Destiny's Child have reunited at Super Bowl XLVII.

The trio performed together on renditions of Destiny's Child tracks 'Bootylicious' and 'Independent Women (Part 2)', as well as a version of Beyoncé hit 'Single Ladies'.

Beyoncé opened her set with a performance of 2003 single 'Crazy In Love', flanked by backing dancers and accompanied by a spectacular firework display, before going on to sing versions of 'End of Time', 'Baby Boy' and 'Halo'.

The girl group's reunion at the show had seemingly been confirmed in January after a leaked setlist for the show obtained by Us Weekly showed that Rowland and Williams would join Beyoncé on stage at the extravaganza.

However, Williams went on to deny the reports, saying that any suggestions that the three would appear together were "not true".

Shortly after Beyoncé's performance, play between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francico 49ers was suspended for over half an hour due to a power cut which saw around half of the lights and a number of scoreboards at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome go out.

The BBC's Mark Chapman initially reported that a blown transformer at the stadium was the likely cause, but Superdome operator SMG and electricity supplier Entergy New Orleans later confirmed that a failsafe circuit breaker operated on detecting an abnormality in the system.
