NEW YORK (AP) - 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 47 tells The Associated Press that the Grammy-winning diva will take the stage at the halftime show on Feb. 3, 2013, at the Superdome in New Orleans. The source spoke on condition of anonymity because that person wasn't authorized to publicly reveal the information.
The source said the official announcement is expected Wednesday.
Beyonce sang the national anthem at the 2004 Super Bowl in Houston. Madonna performed at this year's Super Bowl with guests CeeLo Green, Nicki Minaj, LMFAO and M.I.A.
Pepsi is returning as the sponsor for the halftime show since doing so in 2007 when Prince performed.
