NEW YORK -- All the single ladies
will be watching the upcoming Super Bowl along with football lovers.
That's because Beyonce is the halftime show performer.

A source familiar with Super Bowl
XLVII told The Associated Press the Grammy-winning diva will take the
stage at the halftime show on Feb. 3, 2013, at the Mercedes-Benz
Superdome in New Orleans. The source spoke on condition of anonymity
because that person wasn't authorized to publicly reveal the
information.
The official announcement is expected Wednesday, the source said.
Beyonce, whose pop and R&B hits
include "Crazy in Love," `'Irreplaceable" and "Single Ladies (Put a Ring
on It)," has won 16 Grammy Awards. The 31-year-old sang the national
anthem at Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004 in her hometown of Houston when the
New England Patriots defeated the Carolina Panthers.
Madonna performed at halftime at this
year's Super Bowl in February with guests CeeLo Green, Nicki Minaj,
LMFAO and M.I.A. The New York Giants beat the New England Patriots in a
thrilling rematch of the contest four years earlier. Her performance was
seen by 114 million people, a higher average than the game itself,
which was seen by an estimated 111.3 million people, according to the
Nielsen Co.
If Beyonce's performance at the Pepsi
NFL Halftime Show features collaborations, it could likely include
husband-rapper Jay-Z and her Destiny's Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and
Michelle Williams.
New Orleans last hosted a Super Bowl
in 2002, making next year's game the first NFL championship in the city
since Hurricane Katrina devastated parts of the Louisiana Superdome in
2005. Pepsi is returning as the sponsor for the halftime show since
doing so in 2007 when Prince performed.
