Michelle Obama: 'Beyonce Was Phenomenal, I Am So Proud Of Her!' (TWEET)

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."
