LOS ANGELES — It's official: Madonna will perform during the Super Bowl XLVI halftime show on Feb. 5.
The news was confirmed during NBC's "Sunday Night Football" game between the Detroit Lions and New Orleans Saints.
Rumors had been swirling for weeks that the Material Girl would hit the stage during football's most epic game of the year. And the timing couldn't be more perfect — the 53-year-old singer's romantic drama "W.E." just happens to be rolling out in theaters two days before the game. And she is currently recording an album due for release next year.
At this past February's Super Bowl, the Black Eyed Peas performed, while the Who headlined the 2010 halftime show.
The 2012 big game, which will air on NBC, is set to take place at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Madonna will team up with Cirque Du Soleil and Jamie King for the performance.
