Jay Z and Beyoncé's $2m Super Bowl performance

04 February 2014, 06:42

Los Angeles - Jay Z, Beyoncé and DJ Tiesto were paid more than $2m to perform at the most expensive Super Bowl party of all-time on Saturday night.

The couple performed for 6 000 guests at Pier 40 on Manhattan's West Side, while DJ Tiesto took to the decks, and the trio banked huge pay cheques for their night's work, according to the New York Post newspaper.

Hollywood stars including Leonardo DiCaprio and Jamie Foxx were joined by music legend Sir Paul McCartney to watch Beyoncé and her husband perform her single Drunk in Love at the DirecTV Super Saturday party.

The show took place in a specially-constructed stadium - while guests drank in a heated stadium tent which took weeks to build.

Macklemore, Spike Lee, Hayden Panettiere and Kate Upton were amongst the other guests.

Jay, 44, headlined and performed a greatest hits set including his ode to New York City Empire State of Mind, before being joined by his wife Beyoncé, 32, to perform their latest collaboration.

The notoriously private pair, who also put on a steamy performance at the Grammy Awards last month, kissed on stage and Jay Z urged the crowd to ''all hail Queen B'.'

Later on in the evening the couple attended the Roc Nation Sports and Airbnb party at Jay Z's own 40/40 Club.
