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.
I LOVE BEYONCE IM SO HAPPY SHE'LL BE PREFORMING BUT THERE IS NOTHING BETTER THAN SEEING HER KELLY AND MICHELLE TOGETHER.! I WOULD LOVE TO SEE DC3 AND BABY BLUE.!
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!
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
Yes!! I thought I was the only one that thought that. He just picks and finds everything wron that he can. I knew I was right.
Yes!! I thought I was the only one that thought that. He just picks and finds everything wrong that he can. I knew I was right. This is to A country embedded in hate.
Good for her. I won't be watching.
AMAN Meesha! I'm sooo tired of the media shoving Beyonce downs folks throats... who really gives a crap if she performs or not! I, like many others REALLY don't! PLEASE... let's give some other performer a chance at the spot light. My goodness!
If the broad didnt have her sweater meat hanging out all the time she's only be gorgeous instead of making my newly agitate birth canal all creamy absolutely gorgeous
HATERS GET A LIFE! BEYONCE ONE THE WORLD'S GREATEST PERFORMER EVER TO PERFORM THE SUPER BOWL'S HALF TIME SHOW – AMERICA CAN WAIT – YOU GO GIRL!!!! PEOPLE DON'T BE STUPID AND VOTE FOR RICH MITT – BE SMART AND VOTE OBAMA...THE GREATEST AND KOOLEST PRESIDENT EVER.
WHO RUN THE U.S. "OBAMA" – WHO RUN THE SUPER BOWL HALF TIME "BEYONCE". HATERS TAKE A SEAT AND MAKE ROOM FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA AND THE GREATEST SUPERBOWL PERFORMER EVER 'BEYONCE"
I am sorry to bust your bubble but the BEST SUPERBOWL PERFORMER EVER hands down will always be THE KING OF POP MICHAEL JACKSON. If you haven't seen it look it up on youtube. He did it for the 93 Superbowl it was OUT OF THESE WORLD AND COST THE MOST EVER LOL
We need OBAMA to win!
Not Beyonce! OMG! I guess we will have to see another illuminiti tribute to satan. I thought the NFL got enough when Madonna gave her tribute to the devil. When will it end?
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. :)
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.
Actually Beyonce is one of the few artists that sing and dance at the same time. Isn't that what half-time is about??? Moving people??? Looks like many will be getting off their butts!.!.!
You call that singing? OK I see where you are at. She is a great performer but come on. Not the greatest singer. We've seen it all already.
Maybe she will moo all her songs since I agree she is a no talent cow.
Beyonce IS VERY TALENTED. She CAN sing and dance very well. I was hoping she would do the halftime show. Now I know it will rock!!!
Who would I like to see with Beyonce? My daughter!!! She adores Beyonce and would give anything to be anywhere in the proximity that Beyonce is!!!
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?
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!
Cannot wait..she is a great performer..true artist.
I'm actually excited for a Super Bowl Performance from Beyonce. I would love to see Beyonce and Lady Gaga perform Telephone together for the first time.
I would love to see JimI Hendrix perform. Even a hologram Jimi would be good. And Led Zeppelin. And maybe Jefferson Airplane with Grace Slick. And maybe The Rolling Stones from the 1960s when they were good. That would be very nice. I would smile.
I guess Janis Jopplin would be ok. I never liked her that much though.
only if she came on stage naked ill watch beside i dont care to see her she is a boring prefromer i was more happy to watch madonna half time wich drew more rating tan the super bowl half time she will nver top tat madonna was the best half time in history
No. Madonna. Was. Not!!!
That's what I'd like to see. Not Beeyonse
I'd like to see Pink Floyd. What I'm going to get is Beyonce not wearing much and shaking a big booty and singing about putting a ring on it.
...So you'll get a wall.
I want her to come home with me and have our own halftime,you know what I mean?
I'd like to her and Lady Gaga do an up-tempo dance number to 'Telephone' for the first time.
I'd like to SEE her*
We love you B.just do you.
cant wait for destiny's child reunion. will be there
I think this will be a great show. And I'd love to see Frank Ocean, Lil Wayne AND Jay pop up! I'm fine with any song except single ladies ..its too overdone. I'm thinking countdown, naughty girl, run the world and if she brings back destiny's child then 'soldier' is a must!
she can shake her butt like jlo can...talent girls and know how to act in the business.
perfect example of a wife, mother, career and devoted performer...
of a mom, career and performer...we vote for her
I wanna see justin timberlake expose her boobs.
I like to see at the Halftime show New Kids on the block Yeah baby.
I would like to see a return of the marching bands during halftime
Yes, so would I. Enough with the garbage pop acts brought in to add to the "spectacle" of the Superbowl. Marching bands and football go hand in hand. But, nowadays, it's all about cramming more junk down viewers' throats. Yes, I am calling Beyonce "junk."
Who wants to see this girl sing at the Super Bowl? She sucks, her music is crap, and she does not appeal to the average male who watches football. Who makes these decisions?
Do you live in America???? She doesn't appeal to average men???? JUst ARE YOU SERIOUS????
i'd rather see beyonce take a stage dive and everyone back up instead of catching her. so freakin' tired of her crappy music.
Im sure your openly gay too!
I'd honestly like to see a cord get unplugged while her mouth is still moving and have her lip sinking exposed then fall off the stage as she's running off in embarrassment. We all have a dream :)
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.
BTW, just because you can not appreciate someone does not mean you have to down play their talents.
Why even comment or better yet read the damn. Article if u hate her so much... damn ppl can be so stupid
What do I want to see? A wardrobe malfunction.
Wardrobe malfunction. If not, I'm turning the channel.
everyone has beyonce's number...even the local diners
no she does not lip sync–have you been to one of her shows?
If she doesn't lip sync, I am the first Jewish Pope.
CANT WAITTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT. I LIVE IN THE CARIBBEAN AND NEXT YEAR SUPERBOWL IS WHAT IM WATCHING ONLY FOR THIS WOMAN....... SUPER TALENTED CAN PERFORM HER ASSSSSSSS OFF.... AND I KNOW WILL MURDER THAT STAGE..... QUEEN B..... THEY WILL TELL HER... LETS FORGET THE GAME.... KEEP ON PERFORMING.... SHE IS THAT BAD...... THE COUNTDOWN HAS BEGUN :)
How about someone that actually sings for once???? I'm so sick of these 'artists' who dance but lip sync their live performances. ENOUGH !!!!!
Well you got it! Beyonce does not lip-sync. Just try googling her live performance and then judge for yourself. This lady is one of the few awesome and real performers left. Just put your bias aside and do some research...I dare you!
couple out there...they are now low end...i would love to see her in concert
I'd like to see a different performer! Not a Beyonce Fan!
there is no control over him...i love the way this couple acts towards each other...
Yawn. Beyonce is way over rated. She's a dancer, not a singer and not the best dancer on the stage.
A wardrobe malfunction.
jayz does not drink anymore..he has chilled out since he's with beyonce...good boy jayz...
she has a killer body and should be proud of herself
i agree 50 pounds is good and jayzz has to stop drinking.
I will take the opportunity to go take a poop and heat up some more Bagel Bites. I would PAY to not have to watch Beyone shrieking and booty dancin' all over the place. Don't yell your songs at me. Sing them. And wear some actual clothes. Sheesh.
Haters dont live long!
I want to see the Who.
Future President Mitt Romney!
I want to see her lose about 50 pounds so she's not such a cow. What was no one with talent available?
50 pounds dude are you serious?If this goddess lost 50 pounds she'd look like a crack addicted anorexic.A real man like voluptuousness not bones.
has it together both talented - i will definately see this show
run a check...bennny....
Beyonce will go down in history as an all time favorite performer for the Super Bowl. YOU HATERS GET OVER IT!!! She's the best....No performer can touch her!!! Obama will also make history as President again...Sit down rude-rich-Mitt and show some respect for you Commandr&Chief :~(
