While an official announcement isn't expected until tomorrow, sources told The Associated Press today that Beyonce will be this season's Super Bowl halftime show performer. With an arsenal of dance-friendly Top 40 pop songs, the diva's set in New Orleans should fit snugly alongside the last couple halftime performances, Madonna this year in Indianapolis, Ind., and The Black Eyed Peas in Arlington, Tex., in 2011.
What do you think of the news? What do you expect from the show? Will Beyonce put on a fitting performance? Will hubby Jay-Z join her on stage?
Check out Beyonce's last Super Bowl appearance, singing the national anthem in her hometown of Houston in 2004, and tell us what you think of the news.
