Last year's Super Bowl halftime show was headlined by Madonna, whose performance was more popular than the actual game. It was seen by 114 million people, a higher average than the game itself, which was seen by an estimated 111.3 million people, according to the Nielsen Co.
This would be Beyoncé's first halftime performance; she did sing the national anthem at Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004 in her hometown of Houston.
It's been a good year for Mrs. Carter and her husband, Jay-Z. After giving birth to their first child, Blue Ivy, in January, the couple was named to the Forbes 15 most powerful couples in the world list, and recently the Jigga man headlined a set of shows at Barclays Center in Brooklyn where the Brooklyn Nets, the NBA team he owns a stake in, play. Beyoncé joined him onstage for his final performance of an eight-night set.

Some are predicting that Jay-Z would be a part of any Beyoncé Super Bowl performance, but there is no official word yet either way.
