Beyonce's Super Bowl halftime show wows local celebs
Beyoncé's Super Bowl halftime show earned mostly rave reviews from Hudson Valley celebrities on Twitter.
The 16-time Grammy Award winner, who owns a home in Scarsdale with husband Jay-Z, sang a 15-minute medley of her hits, including "Halo," "Single Ladies" and "Independent Women," sharing the stage at times with her former girl group, Destiny's Child.
The following tweets from singers, comedians, fashion icons and TV stars are presented in chronological order.
"Glee" star Lea Michele, who attended Rockland Country Day School in Congers, was among the first celebrities to psych themselves up for Beyoncé's halftime show.
So excited for Beyonce right now! #beyonceday— Lea Michele (@msleamichele) February 4, 2013
Another local singer, "The X Factor" runner-up and Mamaroneck resident Carly Rose Sonenclar, needed just one word to let her followers know what was on her mind.
Fashion model Coco Rocha, who calls Hastings-on-Hudson home, commended the pop star on her versatility and performance skills.
Bedford's Collin McLoughlin, who made it to the Top 40 on the most recent season of "The Voice," put the pop star on a pedestal.
Beyonce is a goddess. That is all— Collin McLoughlin (@McLoughlinMusic) February 4, 2013
Hyde Park's Scott Connolly, the DJ known as Deuce at the Poughkeepsie-based WRRV, picked up on the fact that Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland's mics were not quite as live as Beyoncé's.
"Hey, you can be on stage with me, but your mics can't be on." - Beyonce to Destiny's Child, apparently.— Deuce (@DeuceRadio) February 4, 2013
Ingrid Michaelson, who worked one summer at the Hudson Valley Children’s Museum in Nyack, questioned some of the televised camera angles (but later emphasized that she loved the performance and Beyoncé).
I have seen more of Beyonce's crotch than I care to see.#halftimeshow— Ingrid Michaelson (@ingridmusic) February 4, 2013
Rising pop star Kristine Elezaj, a Tuckahoe native, issued an instant review after the halftime show ended.

New City native Allison Hagendorf, host of The CW's "The Next: Fame is at Your Doorstep" admired Beyoncé's style and physique.
Martha Stewart also approved of Beyoncé's attire while working through the kinks of owning a new phone.

Back to Coco Rocha, who offered a solution to the seemingly interminable power outage that happened almost immediately after the game resumed.
While they worry about getting the other lights back on let's bring @beyonce back!— CocoRocha (@cocorocha) February 4, 2013
In the Great Comedians Think Alike category, we have Tarrytown native Greg Fitzsimmons...
