Yesterday the singer posted a snap of herself titled ‘Countdown to Touchdown’ on her official website with the words Feb 3, 2013 - the date of the big game - painted on her cheeks.
Super Bowl organizers have since backed up the big news on their official Twitter account, writing,
“Beyonce will perform @pepsi #SB47 Halftime Show in New Orleans. Feb. 3 2013 on @cbs.”
The halftime show is one of the biggest musical events of the year, attracting more than 100 million viewers in the US as well as being broadcast live around the world. Last year, pop icon Madonna hit the stage to perform a medley of her biggest hits, with special guests Nicki Minaj, LMFAO and M.I.A.
Beyonce joins a long list of esteemed halftime acts, including The Black Eyed Peas, The Who, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Prince, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and U2.
Although this is her first halftime show, Bey is no stranger to the Super Bowl extravaganza. The 31-year-old sang the national anthem at the Super Bowl back in 2004 when it was held in her hometown of Houston, Texas.
