The last time Beyonce performed at the Superbowl was 2004, when she performed the national anthem. Since then, life has changed a lot for her; Destiny's Child broke up, she made an explosive re-entrance as a solo artist, has won countless awards, created an acting career for herself, married Jay-Z and this year has become a mother. Now, to add to her successes she has been asked to perform at next year's 47th Superbowl Half Time Show.

Rumours began when she officially backed out of starring in Clint Eastwood's remake of 'A Star is Born'. She cited scheduling problems and just too much to do, but without anything particularly clear on the horizon, no album, no major films coming up, no album being talked about, fans were a little confused. A source has confirmed to the Associated Press that Beyoncé will be the performer at the half time show, which will be held at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, on February 3rd of next year. There has been no word from Beyoncé or any representative of hers, but we can expect to hear from them on Wednesday.

This year's Superbowl half time show was an extraordinary performance from Madonna alongside a plethora of incredible American performers including Cee Lo Green, M.I.A., Nicki Minaj and LMFAO. 114 million people watched the show, which is more than watched the game, reports the Huffington Post. Hot on everyone's lips at the moment is the discussion of who will be joining Beyoncé in the show.
