For years, the NFL has been trying to find a halftime show performer who will attract an audience of all generations; someone who can appeal to viewers of all ages. The NFL seems to have found their girl in R&B sensation Beyoncé Knowles. Knowles has a particular type of voice that can be appreciated by people of all ages, a type of talent that is ageless. 

The former Destiny’s Child star will look to shine bright on one of the biggest stages of all come February 3rd. The multi-platinum recording artist has been in headlines recently as she sang the “Star Spangled Banner” at President Barack Obama’s inauguration

According to, Knowles will be introduced by 100 fans when she takes center stage at the Super Dome next weekend. The Pepsi-sponsored contest requires entrants to send in photos of themselves that will be featured in a commercial during the Super Bowl, and 50 of those entrants (plus a friend) will be chosen to introduce Beyoncé. 

The fans will not be the only ones joining Beyoncé onstage, as she will also be joined at some point by her former Destiny’s Child protegé, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.

The trio will be performing some of their old hits from their Destiny’s Child days, and it is rumored that they will conclude their performance with their recently released song “Nuclear”. It is unclear as to what other songs they will be performing, but the set is likely to contain four to eight songs. 

Another surprise guest may be in order as well, as Knowles is married to hip-hop legend, Jay-Z.

While there are many things we don’t know about Beyoncé’s performance yet, there is one thing we can bank on—it will be better than the Black Eyed Peas and Madonna’s performance. Let’s just hope Justin Timberlake doesn’t decide to show up and go rogue again...
