"All hail to the queen!" Jay Z told the crowd at New York's Pier 40 stadium Saturday night. As if we needed to be told.
There were whispers before the DirecTV Super Bowl party got going that Jay Z's wife might make a surprise entrance. And it happened.
"Anysexy ladies in New York City tonight!" Jay Z asked the audience ataround 12: 50 a.m., just about halfway through his hour-long set.
"I said," he reiterated, 'Any sexy ladies in New York City tonight?"
And in Beyoncestrutted - dancing, singing and flirting with her hubby. The two rappedand kissed and then she sauntered off stage with a big smile. It wasn'tsteamy like their recent Grammy duet. This was more of a sweet momentin a weekend packed with star-studded moments.
"Make some noise for Queen Bey!" said Jay Z as she exited the stage..
The party was such a hot ticket that Mark Cuban, co-host of the bash, told USA TODAY, "We turned away at least 5,000 people."
CBS This Morning co-anchor Gayle King was definitely not one of them. "I've seen Jay Z five, six, maybe nine times. I even flew to Parisone time to see him," she said. "I think he's so smart. I think hislyrics are so great." And, she added, "I think there's something specialabout seeing Jay Z in New York . This is really his turf."
Right you are, Gayle!
