Beyonce‘s reunion with Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams of Destiny’s Child at the Super Bowl is almost — if not more — anticipated than the big game itself, and now their set list has been revealed.

Queen Bey — after performing her solo set list which will include ‘Crazy in Love’ — will join her fellow ‘Independent Women’ for a three-song medley, beginning with ‘Bills, Bills, Bills,’ followed by ‘Survivor’ and ending with their latest, ‘Nuclear.’ While plugging the new single was to be expected, it’s still interesting to see how the relatively low key track will work in such a high energy setting.

Beyonce’s performance is even more important now following the hullabaloo surrounding her Inauguration ceremony debacle. A source close to Beyonce, who was accused of lip-syncing, insists that the ‘Countdown’ superstar did nothing of the sort. “She did sing,” the source told Us Weekly. “There was a [pre-recorded] track, but Bey sang 100 percent.”

Videos of the performance confirm that, as there are distinct points throughout, especially in the beginning, where Bey’s voice doesn’t quite exactly match the backing track — you can hear two distinct, yet lovely voices at the same time.

“[Using a pre-recorded track at live events] is very very common,” the source added. “The track was only there as a backup.”

Williams came to Bey’s defense, telling ‘Good Morning America’ that the gossip was “disappointing and sad … that was such a big moment for her. I wish people would let it go.”

While Beyonce was irked by the speculation, she’s determined to make up for it. “She can’t wait to get on the Super Bowl stage and show everyone,” the source said. “She can’t wait to knock ‘em dead.”
