UPDATE: Beyonce has confirmed via a photo posted to her Tumblr that she will be performing at the Super Bowl. Begin countdown clock to February 3 now.
Who cares which teams make it to Super Bowl XLVII? According to Associated Press, Beyonce is set to play the halftime show, and we all know that's all that matters! The "Single Ladies" singer is reportedly set to take the stage February 3, 2013, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, giving me a reason to actually watch this thing.
The last time Beyonce hit the Super Bowl was in 2004 when she sang the National Anthem. Since then, Bey's gone on to release three studio albums, win 13 Grammy awards, marry the king of hip-hop and become the cutest mom we've ever seen. Something tells us her second Super Bowl appearance will be 10 times more epic. A rep for Beyonce's label Columbia Records declined to comment for this story.
Ridiculously expensive commercials, football and Beyonce together at last. America FTW!
We kind of feel like these guys—Clinton Lowe (who plays Rashad), "The Hustle" creator Prentice Penny, hip-hop icon Large Professor and Y’lan Noel (who plays Kutta)—waiting for the show to premiere tonight. Tune in at 11/10C!
