Beyoncé is a talented performer, but she can't pull off this halftime show by herself. She needs some added star power.
It's the Super Bowl after all. This quasi-American holiday is all about extravagance, overindulgence and packing as many attention-grabbing items into every valuable second as a person's senses will allow them to absorb.
Beyoncé is not going to ruin the suspense by revealing who will be making cameos. So, we are left to guess who will be joining her on stage.
While we can't even be sure that her husband, Jay-Z, will join, we can safely rule out that M.I.A. will.
Anyway, onto who should join Beyoncé.
No. 3: The Rest of Destiny's Child
Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams are the pieces, along with Beyoncé, that made Destiny's Child. It seems to me that if destiny did have a single child, that playing at the halftime of the Super Bowl would be fitting.
I have to imagine that Rowland and Williams broached this topic at some point while the three shook of their group dust and recorded Nuclear.
In the montage format that Beyoncé will most likely apply to this set, it would be fun to see her bang out some of the hits, with her old bandmates, that helped make her famous in the first place.
No. 2: Jay-Z
This is a natural. For starters, Jay-Z and Beyoncé are very publicly married. It is hard to see one without thinking of the other.
Also, Jay-Z is a fantastic live performer, and he rarely fails at delivering a spectacular performance.
Of course, these two, much like our last suggestion, know how to work together on stage.
No. 1: Paul McCartney
We could add some up-and-coming R&B artists or rappers to this list, but this is the Super Bowl we are talking about. We need something extravagant, and it doesn't get much more extravagant than Sir Paul.
McCartney could appear out of the depths of a smoke screen to tickle the ivory for any number of hits, that virtually every one on the planet knows the words to, that he wrote with the Beatles,
This would allow Beyoncé, and any other artists on stage for their cameos, a chance to help lead the all the fans in a rendition of an iconic song.
