Destiny's Child's Super Bowl Performance Sparks Controversy Over Microphone Volumes
4 February 2013, 10:41
Several commentators have questioned whether Kelly and Michelle's microphones were on lower than Beyonce's.
Destiny's Child's highly anticipated reunion at the US Super Bowl 2013 last night (3rd February) has been mired in controversy amid claims Beyonce's bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams had their microphones turned on lower then the US star.
The girl band stars joined bandmate Beyonce during the 'Love On Top' singer's Super Bowl halftime show for a medley performance, but reports from those in attendance at the event suggest it was "difficult" to hear Kelly and Michelle above Beyonce's powerful voice.
"Rowland and Williams were barely heard when the group sang 'Independent Woman' as their voices faded into the background," CBS wrote, in their official review of Beyonce's show.
"It was difficult to hear the vocals of Rowland and Williams, either because of the microphone volumes or the background music," Forbes also questioned.
The claims follow several fan posts on Twitter questioning whether the Destiny's Child stars had their microphones on a lower volume setting than Beyonce, although none of the three stars have hinted at any issues since their performance.
"Had a great time w/ my sisters tonight!!" Michelle tweeted after the event. "Tried to keep it a surprise!! Love you all… God bless!"

Beyonce's performance at the US Super Bowl saw her perform hits like 'Crazy In Love' and 'Baby Boy' as well as reuniting with Destiny's Child to sing both 'Bootylicious' and 'Independent Woman Part 1'.
Beyonce has also announced a brand new world tour fresh from the show, called 'The Mrs. Carter Show', which will arrive over in the UK for a six-date stop this April.
