In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter after her electrifying performance, Cheryl responded to those who wondered if she had lip-synced.

“Is that a problem? Is it a problem? No, thank you,” she said.

The 66-year-old, who is also known for winning a Tony Award for Dreamgirls on Broadway, told the publication that she was thrilled with her performance and the positive feedback she received after coming off stage.

“It’s really great that they chose me. And the Eagles to the Super Bowl. she said.

“It’s just amazing, it’s just amazing… And about how people came back, they said, ‘Girls, you made it look like you were going to make the pre-show halftime. ‘ They said, ‘Costume. The wardrobe, the hair, the shoes, the makeup.’ I was like, ‘Well, thank you.'”

The Emmy-winning star was supported at the stadium by Abbott Elementary School costars Quinta Branson and Lisa Ann Walter.

Elsewhere, Chris Stapleton performed the national anthem and Kenneth ‘Babyface’ Edmonds sang America the Beautiful. Rihanna headlined the set of her show’s 13-minute halftime completely solo, revealing her second pregnancy.

The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Philadelphia Eagles during the game.
