Beyonce has praised her Destiny's Child band mates Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland for their 'fierce' performance at the Super Bowl.The 'Nuclear' singers reunited for the first time since 2006 at the event in New Orleans, which attracted an average of 104 million viewers, and the 31-year-old believes theircollaboration was among the highlights of her half-time show.Beyonce told Inside Edition: "They were fierce honey. It was 'Gone with the Wind' fabulous."Kelly Rowland said their high profile reunion felt "wonderful", adding: "It was a great performance."Michelle Williams also enjoyed it, saying: "It was fun."Beyonce previously admitted that she was "so proud" of her 14-minute performance and was pleased with the reaction to the show and the Destiny's Child reunion.She said: "I'm feeling so proud, it was a really beautiful day."All the hard work, five months of preparation, and it was really great."She added: "It really was a magnificent night for me and the girls."The band also changed their set list for the event at the last minute, replacing 1999 hit 'Bills, Bills, Bills' in favour of 2001 track 'Bootylicious' because it better suited the high energyof the rest of their set.A source said: "They kept rehearsing with 'Bills, Bills, Bills'. And the band started saying, 'How come they're not doing 'Bootylicious?'"'Bills...' turned out to be too slow and wasn't flowing with the rest of the set. 'Bootylicious' was a better way to introduce the girls with their names. It worked so much better."
