Now there’s a reason for women to watch the Super Bowl along with football lovers as Beyonce is set to perform on the half-time show.
The Super Bowl is set for February 3, 2012 at the Mercedez-Benz SuperDome in New Orleans, and with Beyonce’s photo on Tumblr sporting eye black, with ‘Feb.3’ on one eye and ‘2013’ on the other, thereafter, the NFL confirmed that she was to be the half-time show performer.
It is also likely that if her show involves collaborations with other artistes, her husband (and rapper) Jay-Z, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams who were her Destiny’s Child bandmates will also perform at the Pepsi NFL Halftime Show.
This is not the first time that Beyonce will be performing at the Super Bowl as she had sang the National Anthem in 2004 in her hometown in Houston as the New England Patriots played (and defeated) the Carolina Panthers. Since then, her hits such as ‘Crazy in Love’, ‘Irreplaceable’ and ‘Single Ladies (Put a Ring on it) in pop and R&B, have also garnered her 16 Grammy awards.
Earlier this year, Madonna performed at half-time of the Super Bowl in February 2012 along with acts such as LMFAO, M.I.A, Nicki Minaj and CeeLo Green – a performance that was seen by an average of 114 million people, and which according to Nielsen Co., was a number higher than those who watch the game itself.
The last time New Orleans hosted a Super Bowl was in 2002, and it will be the first time that they host the championship in the city ever since the Louisiana SuperDome was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
