According to Rolling Stone, Beyonce is slated to perform at next year’s Super Bowl halftime show.
An official announcement is expected Wednesday.
“It will be the second Super Bowl appearance for the superstar: Beyoncé sang the national anthem in 2004 when the NFL held its championship game in her hometown of Houston. This year’s Super Bowl will be the first held in New Orleans since 2002, and will certainly be one of the most watched television events of the year.
In fact, the halftime show has the potential to outdraw the game itself: Madonna’s halftime performance last year, which featured guest appearances from Cee Lo Green, Nicki Minaj, LMFAO and M.I.A., drew 114 million viewers, according to Nielsen SoundScan, compared to an estimated 111.3 million who watched the actual game.”
Considering the caliber of prior halftime show performers (Michael Jackson, Madonna, U2, and The Rolling Stones, to name a few), this is quite an achievement for Beyonce, and testament to her stature in the entertainment world.
