Going with Beyonce guarantees that the 2013 Super Bowl halftime show will not be awful, unlike those of so many years gone by. 

The Associated Press reports the R&B pop diva who has 16 Grammy Awards to her name will be the halftime entertainment at Super Bowl XLVII. 

The report comes from an anonymous source who was not granted permission to reveal the halftime show artist. 

As for the official announcement, that will come on Wednesday, giving us our first reason to be eager to see the big game early next year. 

Now we play a little game of association. You say, “Beyonce,” I say, “Jay-Z.” Here is what the report has to offer on possible collaborations. 

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.

I may have to actually watch the Super Bowl halftime show this season, because a lineup like that doesn't come often, literally. 

Choice performances have been few and far between since Janet Jackson decided to show just a tad too much on live TV. 

Since her ill-fated wardrobe malfunction in 2004, halftime producers have seemingly erred on the side of older musical acts.

Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, Tom Petty and The Who all performed in the years following the scandalous scene at Reliant Stadium. 

More recently, we were given a past-her-prime Madonna and the robotic, auto-tune shouting of the Black Eyed Peas. 

Finally, we get something that will pleasantly entertain while we chow down on hot dogs and sip on some beer.
