First Lady Michelle Obama was one of millions watching Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday, and like many, she stuck around during half time for Beyonce's big performance.

Obama -- who dined on Chesapeake crab cakes in honor of Baltimore and San Francisco cioppino stew with sourdough toast during the big game, according to White House pool reports -- tweeted her excitement about the singer's halftime show:

Beyonce has shown her pride for Obama in the past, once penning a letter to the first lady calling her "the ULTIMATE example of a truly strong African American woman."
