Fans remain unsure about whether their favorite team will make the Super Bowl, but news has surfaced that pop and R&B superstar, Beyoncé will be there.

Beyonce during a live performance
Several milestones accompany Beyonce’s upcoming performance at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
This Super Bowl will be the first to take place in New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina destroyed a significant portion of the Louisiana Superdome in 2005. The last Super Bowl hosted in New Orleans took place in 2002, when the New England Patriots defeated the St. Louis Rams in their first Super Bowl victory.
Beyoncé will also be the first contemporary artist to perform at the Super Bowl since Janet Jackson’s infamous wardrobe malfunction in 2004. Ironically, Beyoncé sung the national anthem during that very Super Bowl that took place in her hometown of Houston, Tex., where the New England Patriots defeated the Carolina Panthers.
Since then, the halftime show has seen acts such as Madonna, CeeLo Green, Nicki Minaj, LMFAO and M.I.A whom performed at this year’s Super Bowl to mixed reviews; and the New York Giants defeated the New England Patriots.
Fox Sports suggests that artists such as husband Jay Z and Destiny’s Child band mates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams could accompany Beyoncé during halftime.
Pepsi also returns as the halftime show’s sponsor for the first time since 2007 when Prince performed; and the Indianapolis Colts beat the Chicago Bears.
