Update 10/16/2012: Beyonce confirmed she’ll do the halftime show, via a photo posted to her official site on Tuesday afternoon where she’s wearing grease paint emblazoned with the Super Bowl date.
An anonymous source has told the Associated Press that Beyonce will perform at this year’s Super Bowl halftime show, taking place February 3rd at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. It’s expected that an official announcement of Beyonce’s appearance will be made on Wednesday. This should make for a glossier, more wholesome halftime show than last year’s, when M.I.A. flashed her middle finger to the sporting event’s highest rated television broadcast in history.
