Last year around this time we first heard that Madonna would be performing the half time show at Super Bowl XLVI … today we are hearing that Beyoncé will be the performer during the half time show of next year’s Super Bowl XLVII. Now, at this point the news of Bey‘s Super Bowl performance is only a rumor (one that is spreading like wildfire today) but it seems likely that she might be the perfect performer to take the stage next year. Click below to read the deets of this report and see what you think.
All the single ladies will be watching the upcoming Super Bowl along with football lovers. That’s because Beyonce is the halftime show performer. The Grammy-winning diva will take the stage at the halftime show on Feb. 3, 2013, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, a source familiar with Super Bowl XLVII told The Associated Press. The source spoke on condition of anonymity because that person wasn’t authorized to publicly reveal the information. The official announcement is expected Wednesday, the source said. Beyonce, whose pop and R&B hits include “Crazy in Love,” “Irreplaceable” and “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It),” has won 16 Grammy Awards. The 31-year-old sang the national anthem at Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004 in her hometown of Houston when the New England Patriots defeated the Carolina Panthers. Madonna performed at halftime at this year’s Super Bowl in February with guests CeeLo Green, Nicki Minaj, LMFAO and M.I.A. The New York Giants beat the Patriots in a thrilling rematch of the contest four years earlier. Her performance was seen by 114 million people, a higher average than the game itself, which was seen by an estimated 111.3 million people, according to the Nielsen Co. If Beyonce’s performance at the Pepsi NFL Halftime Show features collaborations, it could likely include husband-rapper Jay-Z and her Destiny’s Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. New Orleans last hosted a Super Bowl in 2002, making next year’s game the first NFL championship in the city since Hurricane Katrina devastated parts of the Louisiana Superdome in 2005. Pepsi is returning as the sponsor for the halftime show since doing so in 2007 when Prince performed.
OMG, I am REALLY happy with this report. The notion that Beyoncé, if indeed she will perform during the Super Bowl half time show, will bring out hubby Jay-Z for a song or two is a given … but the idea that we might also see a Destiny’s Child reunion as well?! Holy shizz, that would be AMAZING! I have a pretty good feeling that this report will turn out to be true … and we don’t have long to wait. If this rumor is confirmed officially tomorrow, we can start planning our Super Bowl parties immediately. Isn’t this the best news ever?
