While Beyoncé's queenly performance of her recently released single "FORMATION" during last night's Super Bowl Halftime Show was a true pop culture reckoning, it was her backup dancers who subtly stole the show.
This political statement, in the very arena of the most televised event of the year, worked in tandem with the video for "Formation," where Knowles made sure to give visual platforms to the Black Lives Movement...
...as well as the ongoing racial problems in New Orleans, post-Katrina; her sinking of a NoLa city police car said it all.
The dance soldiers made sure to use their social media spotlight to flash reminders of the continued authoritative oppression of black Americans; many of the dancers shared photos of them raising a hand for Mario Woods, a 26-year-old black man shot by the San Francisco police in December.
Watch Bey and her ladies do the damn thing during 'Formation' last night.
