Super Bowl 50: Halftime show
In front of a TV audience of one billion, her dancers paraded in outfits similar to controversial activists the Black Panthers. They also raised their fists in an apparent tribute.
The half-time show at the Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, was branded “ridiculous” and “anti-police” by former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani.
Members of the National Sheriffs’ Association also turned their backs as they watched on Sunday at their Washington base. A cop’s wife posted: “Rise above and stay above the strife. For a girl who grew up in a privileged, wealthy family, she has no business pandering to those who didn’t.”
But DeRay Mckesson, leader of the Black Lives Matter movement, called its “shout-outs” to Michael Jackson and activist Malcolm X “excellent”. Beyonce’s performance, during Denver Broncos’ win over the Carolina Panthers, followed an opening sequence by Coldplay — the top-billed half-time guests.

Louisa Johnson beats Reggie ‘N’ Bollie to be declared winner of X Factor 2015.
After Saturday night’s miserable figures – an average of 5.9m tuned in, the lowest ever for an X Factor final – Simon Cowell will be breathing a sigh of relief after Sunday night showed a huge increase.
The average viewing figures were 8.4m, easily the highest figure of the series, with audience peaking at 9.7m when Louisa Johnson was announced as the winner. Viewers were also keen on tuning in for One Direction (9.1m) and Adele (9.2m). Throughout the series The X Factor has struggled to get above 7m viewers, with many suggesting that the talent show’s days were numbered.
But have ITV bosses seen enough life in the old dog to keep it going – especially with rival singing show The Voice coming to the channel?
It’s every X Factor geek’s favourite bit of the final – the voting stats! ITV have just released the breakdown of the phone vote, week by week, and apart from a couple of small blips, she was the viewers’ favourite from the beginning.
For the first three live shows, Louisa came top. In week four, the nation suddenly fell for Reggie ‘N’ Bollie and they beat Louisa by 0.1 per cent (with this year’s viewing figures, that’s probably just someone’s dog treading on their phone).
In week five, both Reggie ‘N’ Bollie and Ché Chesterman beat her – but, again, by the tiniest of margins (just 1.1 per cent in it!), and from week six onwards she was back on top..

Although its rapidly catching up with number of views as his previous one ‘Oju Mi Ti Ri’ and will mostly likely surpass it, as this video is even better!
