Report: Beyonce Tapped for Super Bowl Halftime Show
Queen Bey is ready for some football! Singing superstar Beyonce Knowles will be the featured headliner at next year’s Pepsi Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show, a loose-lipped source told The Associated Press Tuesday.
An official announcement is expected on Wednesday.
No doubt, the 16 time Grammy winner has a plethora of pop hits to pull from for her performance, but what will she sing? “Single Ladies?” “Crazy in Love?” “Run the World (Girls)?” There’s also the hope that the performance will include collaborations with hip-hopster husband Jay-Z. How about a possible Destiny’s Child reunion with Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland?
This will mark the second time the singer has appeared at the Super Bowl, after she sung the US national anthem in 2004 in her hometown of Houston when the New England Patriots defeated the Carolina Panthers.
Beyonce, 31, succeeds Madonna, Nicki Minaj and M.I.A — who made a big stink with an one-finger salute at last year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show.
Football’s biggest night goes down Feb. 13 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
