Beyonce's Super Bowl Halftime Show: What do you want to see?

So after Beyonce hinted at the news with a clever photo on her website Tuesday, the NFL went ahead and confirmed that the 31-year-old entertainer is going to perform at the XLVII Super Bowl Halftime Show.

We're stoked, because we know Beyonce can put on one hell of a show. But what should she cover in her set? And better yet, who should join her?

Since the performance is going to happen in New Orleans, we wonder if any hometown artists will make an appearance - like Frank Ocean, for example. As MTV notes, Ocean and Bey worked on her "4" album together, and that's aside from the fact that Ocean's currently one of music's brightest (and highly praised) stars.

While we'd like to put money down on a bet that hubby Jay-Z will drop in for a few bars - perhaps echoing Beyonce's appearance at Jay's last performance at Brooklyn's Barclays Center earlier this month - that might not happen because it'd lack the element of surprise.

Interestingly enough, Entertainment Weekly is pulling for a Destiny's Child reunion, believing that they're "the only contemporaries that have a shot at an appearance," given that the superstar mom will have limited performance time and likely wouldn't want to share the stage "with many people, especially those who might be silly enough to try and upstage her."

We're not as convinced, but then again, those Destiny's Child reunion rumors have been awfully persistent. Our only hope is that she finds a way to fit in the song "Countdown," a la her "Countdown to Touchdown" photo.

What are you hoping to see Beyonce perform at the Super Bowl, and who are you thinking could guest star? The XLVII Super Bowl Halftime Show will air on CBS February 3.

    ok... i must say u chose the wrong name "mitt zombie" bcoz if romney(jerk) is a zombie( as sane individuals are aware), then what should u call yourself? let me guess .... "jerkombie!" by the way, calling an outstanding(sane) artist like Bey dumb proves my point CLEARLY!

  3. A country with embedded hate!

    I would like to see Wolfe Blitz from CNN perform since he hates President Obama so much. Notice him after the Monday, 3rd and final Presidental Debate. He hate given the President any credit. If it's not the Clinton's are Mitt he find so many hateful remarks to say. Has anyone notice the line-up panel of CNN. Wolfe and Gloria Borger would perform well at the superbowl...hating in the President...giving fraudulent poll numbers after contacting only republicans...what a team! Go Wolfe and Gloria....Superbowl 2012

  10. new

    there are a lot of great new artists. Do you research and give us something new and refreshing. Not the same predictable show. Please! And I'm not talking Lady Gaga. She does not use her talent properly. She's too in to looking the weirdest out. When she's really just a regular talented woman. I wish she would just be herself and stop trying to get the shock attention. She looks like a fool but sounds good. No one wants to see a fool on half time

      Lady Gaga is weird for her fans, she does it so that they don't feel alone, so that they know that shes with them every step of the way, she's basically what gives me hope in my life, she keeps me happy otherwise I'm the most depressing person... But yeah. HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY. Also i'd love to see Lady Gaga at the Super Bowl with her, of course. :)

  11. EnoughAlready

    Let me guess she's going to be wearing hardly nothing and shaking her wig and ass on stage and hardly singing. I guess she better get it in while she can being that she's around 40 not 30 years old. She's gonna have to put some clothes on at some point. And please don't try to sing a ballad, that would be torture.

    Beyonce has it all, class, beauty, talent, she is a great person, very humble. The person who called her a cow should be ashamed. she sets a great example of what a real woman should look like not the anorexic model types who are living fake lives on lettuce and cocaine. Quite hating she is awesome whether you like her music or not. one of the highest paid out there and what do you do and how much do you make a year?

  15. CrownedOne

    For all you you hating on Beyonce, PLEASE GET A LIFE LOL! I understand if you aren't a fan but you can not deny this womans talent. For people to say she can't dance and sing live, please look up her Glastonbury show where they require all artists to sing live. Look up the video of her singing in the hospital or the dressing room of American Idol. Ask any of your favorite artist who one of their favorites are and I promise at least out of 10 times Beyonce's name will be on the list. Hate all you want but she does not have 16 Grammy's for nothing!

      Actually is one of the few entertainers that does it all on stage – sing live, dance and perform in 4 inch heels. It is the reason she is so successful and has longevity in the business.
