Beyoncé Knowles was photographed celebrating with her husband Jay-Z after leaving the stage following her Super Bowl show last night.
The singer was the highlight of the American football event, taking to the stage in a lace and leather outfit which showed off her toned legs and skimmed her butt. She accessorised with black socks pulled up to the knee and simple black high-heeled boots.
Her performance has been lauded by viewers and it seems she was just as thrilled, as she is spotted giving her husband a big hug backstage in a candid snap taken by make-up artist Joanna Simkin and posted on Instagram.
Beyoncé apparently raced backstage to see her spouse and the couple were seen laughing and joking with each other. In another image, they dash down a corridor together while surrounded by their entourage.
Alicia Keys and Jennifer Hudson also performed at the event - held at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans - and Beyoncé was keen to show them her support. She wrote all the women a thank-you note which she posted online, saying: "What a proud day for African American Women!!!! Kelly, Michelle, Alicia, JHud you are all beautiful, talented and showed so much class (sic)."
Beyoncé performed with fireworks in the background and giant screens showing versions of herself dancing to her tracks in front of the 70,000 strong crowd.
The show went down a storm with celebrities and fans alike, with many taking to Twitter to praise the superstar singer.
Kim Kardashian gushed: "I heard there was this little football game at the Beyonce concert today.... Is that true? #BeyonceBowl (sic)."
Shortly after the star left the stage at the half-time interlude, part of the stadium was plunged into darkness thanks to a power cut. It meant the match was delayed for 30 minutes, with people quickly using the social networking website to joke about what was going on.
"The force and power that is Beyonce just shut the Super Bowl down! Too funny!" Kelly Clarkson teased.
Chris Colfer wrote: " Beyonce broke the Super Bowl, y'all!!! #Too Bootylicious (sic)."
At the Super Bowl, Baltimore Ravens were eventually triumphant over the San Francisco 49ers.
