Beyoncé Might Be The Next Super Bowl Headliner
Beyoncé is set to perform at Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans on February 3rd.
The only other time Beyoncé was part of a Super Bowl was when she sang the National Anthem in her hometown of Houston back in 2004 at the game that will forever be referred to as the “Janet Jackson’s nip-slip.” That was also the last year that a sort of young performer was part of the Halftime Show, minus 2011 when Black Eyed Peas did an array of stage freezes amongst glowing costumes. Other than that, it has been artists from yesteryear; Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, Prince, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, The Who and Madonna.
Last year Madonna brought out a lot of recognizable acts like Nicki Minaj, LMFAO and M.I.A. But hopefully Beyoncé can partner up with artists who are more respectable and not just novelties. Rumors are already swirling that she might have Shakira, Sean Paul, or Kelly Rowland join her. Please, oh please, let there be a Destiny’s Child reunion in the works!
This will be the first Super Bowl hosted by New Orleans at the Mercedes Benz Superdome since Hurricane Katrina, and Beyoncé is a great Halftime headliner choice.
The official announcement won’t be made until Wednesday, but that doesn’t mean fans can’t be excited today.
