Kevin C. Cox/Getty ImagesBeyonce knows a thing or two about performing at the Super Bowl, having sung the national anthem and played halftime — twice. So when she give a thumbs up to another artist’s performance at the event, it means a lot.
The star took to Instagram to praise her protegees Chloe x Halle following their impeccable performance of “America the Beautiful” at Super Bowl LIII this past Sunday. Posting a performance clip of the singers, she wrote, “I’m so proud of Chloe and Halle!”
However, given that Beyonce and her husband JAY Z are supporters of Colin Kaepernick and his claim against the NFL, some fans questioned the Parkwood Entertainment artists’ participation in the event.
“Thought we were boycotting,” wrote one in the comments.
But another fan replied, “Beyonce can boycott whatever she wants and it won’t affect her anymore because she has a strong fan base. These girls are still fresh and it’s best for them to avoid controversy and take advantage of these type of opportunities.”
It’s a big week for Chloe x Halle: This weekend, they head to the Grammys, where they’re nominated for Best New Artist and Best Urban Contemporary Album for The Kids Are Alright.
