Beyoncé's very-live rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" will no doubt be the one thing people remember from Thursday's press conference.

That, and the fact that the singer assured folks, "I will absolutely be singing live," when it comes time to perform during the Super Bowl halftime show.

"I am well rehearsed," she said, after she'd said that a lack of prep time had led to her using a prerecorded track for the inauguration. "This is what I was born to do. What I'm born for."

So what else did Bey chat about with the crowd gathered at the New Orleans Convention Center?

You know, like will there be a Destiny's Child reunion, as is widely rumored?

"I can't really give you any details," she said coyly—as well as not really answering whether she might be performing at the Grammys, too—and also noted, "I have so many songs and trying to condense my career into seven minutes is not easy because all of my songs are like my children."

However, Beyoncé did admit to feeling a bit jittery.

"I'm nervous," she said. "When I was driving up, I got chills looking at the Superdome. There's so much history there."

And so much history to come.
