Beyonce set for Super Bowl show?

Beyonce will reportedly take the stage at the half-time show of the American football championship Super Bowl next year.

The Grammy-winning Crazy In Love singer is said to be performing at the high-profile event at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on February 3.

The 31-year-old sang the national anthem at Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004 in her hometown of Houston when the New England Patriots defeated the Carolina Panthers.

Madonna performed at half-time at this year's Super Bowl in February with guests Cee Lo Green, Nicki Minaj, LMFAO and MIA. Her performance was seen by 114 million people, a higher average than the game itself, which was seen by an estimated 111.3 million people, according to the Nielsen Co.

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.

New Orleans last hosted a Super Bowl in 2002, making next year's game the first NFL championship in the city since Hurricane Katrina devastated parts of the Louisiana Superdome in 2005. Pepsi is returning as the sponsor for the half-time show since doing so in 2007 when Prince performed.
