After a source told the Associated Press that Beyoncé will take the stage at the halftime show during Super Bowl XLVII on Feb. 3 in New Orleans, the superstar officially confirmed the news herself with a post on her official website.
Beyoncé made the announcement via a photograph in which the date Feb. 3, 2013, is written on her face in the style of a football player sporting eye black. At the top of the page, the announcement reads: "Countdown to Touchdown."
The mom to Blue Ivy, 9 months, most recently performed alongside husband Jay-Z during his Oct. 6 show at Brooklyn's new Barclays Center.
During last year's halftime show, Madonna incorporated LMFAO, Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. into her 12-minute performance.
Fans can't help but wonder if Beyoncé, 31, will share the stage with any of the number of artists she's worked with like Kelly Rowland, Shakira and Sean Paul.
