While the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers will take center stage during Super Bowl XLVII, the halftime show can't be ignored.

Beyonce headlines what should be an electric show. And hopefully we'll hear her live this time after the lip-syncing fiasco during Barack Obama's inauguration.

When the Ravens and 49ers head into the half, this is what we're expecting during Beyonce's show.


Some Jazz

The game is being played in New Orleans, and you can expect that at least a part of the halftime show will play on the Big Easy's rich history of music.

Beyonce seems like the type of artist who could help put on a great jazz show, and you can bet that we'll see this show rely on NOLA's great heritage.


Celebrity Appearances

Every year, there are artists and celebrities who help the headliner take the show to the next level. Last year, we saw Nicki Minaj, LMFAO and Cee Lo Green join Madonna. The year before, Slash and Usher joined the Black Eyed Peas.

We know that there will be others on stage besides Beyonce, but we don't know who.

As Bleacher Report's own Tim Keeney says, we'd love to see certain artists like Jay-Z or the rest of Destiny's Child, but I think we can narrow down the field a bit. Odds are that the other artists will help Beyonce bring jazz to the show, which immediately trims down the list. I also think it's very likely that we will see Destiny's Child join up once again in New Orleans.



Beyonce Will Impress

One of the things we know for certain about this show is that Beyonce will be performing and that she will impress us all.

On Thursday, she sung the Star-Spangled Banner and blew everyone away. Her performance was simply stunning, and it is surely a sign of things to come.

After her unfortunate lip-syncing incident, it looks like she will put it all behind her with this performance. If she sings as well as she did on Thursday, this is guaranteed to be an amazing performance.
