Someone was bound to receive a free 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray during the Super Bowl XLVII festivities; it just wasn't who we thought it was going to be. Despite a report back in December that superstar Beyoncé Knowles would be getting an all-new Corvette during her halftime performance, that turned out not to be the case. Joe Flacco, starting quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens, did in fact win a Corvette for his MVP performance.

So what transpired that prevented Beyoncé from rolling on stage in the new Chevrolet? Anyone who knows isn't telling, but according to Yahoo! Autos, General Motors said that for one reason or another a deal "did not work out," and it appears to have been an eleventh-hour change. Regardless of who's to blame or what prevented this from happening, we're sure Chevy has had no problems getting attention for the C7 Corvette since it was introduced last month.

      I am sure if Beyonce came out driving the Stingray, the Internet would have crashed along with the power.....

      Why the heck does she need one for free? She could buy dozens at one time and it wouldn't register on her bank account ( assuming it's being managed correctly ). How about having given it to one of the veterans in the crowd? What a concept eh?

      I'm glad they decided not to give it to Beyonce after all, and rather to somebody who couldn't afford one with just their pocket change. Oh wait...

      The reason why was because Destiny's Child was scheduled to do a reunited performance at the last minute and the car is only a 2 seater.

      I thought she did a great performance at the super bowl. You people that are complaining ought to be glad it wasn't her sister that did half time, Rihanna. Then you would have something to complain about. Do I see a little jealousy in you men out there? Do you make that kind of money at your jobs? Is your wife or girl friend making that kind of money at their job? Hush up and give the girl some credit......

      I know race is a sensitive subject, but man black people truly have rhythm and soul. Rather than bashing her, you gumpy white dudes need to take note and learn how to dance, not hate. Your supposed to move your hips when you dance. Girls will flock if you can dance.
