Beyonce, the pop superstar whose hits include Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It), Crazy in Love and Halo, will perform at the Super Bowl XLVII halftime show on Feb. 3, 2013, according to the Associated Press.
The 31-year-old will take the stage at the Mercedes Benz Superdome during halftime of this season's NFL championship game. It will be the first Super Bowl held in New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina.
Contemporary acts have been mostly shunned from halftime shows ever since Janet Jackson's infamous wardrobe malfunction in 2004. (Coincidentally, Beyonce performed the national anthem at that game.) Since then, Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, Prince, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, The Who and Madonna have headlined. Save for the one year Black Eyed Peas performed, it's been a steady stream of dinosaur acts. Beyonce would be the first headliner since Britney Spears in 2001 to bring modern star power to a halftime show.
