Beyonce Super Bowl Halftime Show in New Orleans!

A Beyoncé super bowl halftime show? Let me set my DVR now! No insult intended to Madonna and her, um, spectacle of a Super Bowl halftime show last year, but I’m hoping Beyoncé will at least have better taste than signing on Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. as guest performers.

Grammy-Award winner Beyoncé is  likely to bring some more enjoyable guest talent to the stage during the Super Bowl XLVII halftime show on Feb. 3.

The Beyoncé Super Bowl halftime show news was leaked on Tuesday, but the official announcement is not due out until Wednesday. A rep for Beyoncé’s label has not yet responded to requests for comment on the news.
