It's finally official: Madonna will be performing at the Superbowl halftime show on Feb. 5, 2012 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
Though it's been rumored for some time that she would perform at the show (money is "Give Me All Your Love" and a possible collaboration with Nicki Minaj and M.I.A.) it wasn't until Sunday night during a New Orleans Saints-Detroit Lions game that the official announcement came.
The singer, whose directorial film effort W.E. will be coming out this month, will join a long line of famous acts who've lit up halftime stages--and forced fans otherwise disinterested in sports to tune in--including The Who, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Prince, the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and U2.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the halftime show will be created by a partnership of Madonna, members of the Cirque du Soliel creative team, choreographer Jamie King and multimedia artists.
