OK, so they had a three way with Tiesto and therefore had to split the proceeds, but that means they still pocket the just over half a million each... then again, Tiesto was only knob twiddling at the event, whereas Beyonce and Jay-Z were giving thousands of folk a window into how Blu Ivy came to be created, so they probably netted more for their efforts...
Jay Z, Beyoncé and - as it happens - Tiesto were paid more then $2 million 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.
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 88,000 sq ft 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.
44-year-old Jay-Z headlined and performed a greatest hits set including Empire State of Mind, before being joined by the missus, to perform their latest collaboration, which is all getting a bit Eyes Wide Shut for my liking... The usually 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.
