Beyonce's Super Bowl Halftime Show Called Raunchier Than 2012 Offering from Madonna

Was Beyonce Knowles too slutty for the Super Bowl?

Was Beyonce's Super Bowl Halftime Show too raunchy?

Some have commented that it was worse than the 2012 Super Bowl Halftime Show from Madonna.

If you need a reminder of Beyonce Knowles dance moves on the Super Bowl stage - catch the video below.

The singer and dancer stripped down to a leather outfit that covered the bare minimum and was criticized for her hair-tossing, legs-spreading performance that did NOT include any wardrobe malfunction.

NBC's Today Show cites this comment as an example of some of the complaints about Beyonce's outfit and dance routine.

One person complained on NBC, "The only thing that was missing was a brass pole and a bouncer that threw out the person who touched her when she was gyrating on the edge of the stage."

Another added, "I would love a Destiny's Child reunion, but felt Beyonce was over the top trampy. I was embarrassed to watch it with my 9 year old son."

Beyonce Knowles was joined by her Destiny's Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams at her Superbowl halftime show.

The 31-year-old singer opened her set at New Orleans' Mercedes-Benz Superdome - with 'Crazy in Love' and 'Til the End of Time' before launching into 'Baby Boy'.

The track featured holograms of the star and her dancers performing the track - and midway through Beyonce and her Destiny's Child bandmates rose up from the ground to sing 'Bootylicious' and 'Independent Women' in their first live performance together since 2007.

The pair then left the stage, leaving Beyonce and an ever-growing army of dancers to perform 'Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)', for which the crowd had been given light-up rings which flashed throughout the song.

The set ended with a solo rendition of 'Halo' and the criticism followed.

Rachel Campos-Duffy writes:

"As soon as I saw pelvic thrusts and legs wide open to the camera, I debated internally about whether to change the channel or use it as a teachable moment. I opted for the latter, and prayed I made the right choice. Interestingly, I noticed all the kids had quizzical expressions on their faces as if to say, 'What is she doing?'"

She has more criticism here.
