It’s official: the Material Girl herself will be performing the Halftime show at Super Bowl XLVI, the NFL confirmed Sunday.
The NFL Championship game, which will take place Feb. 5 at Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Stadium, will see Madonna team up with Cirque du Soleil, one of her favorite collaborator’s Jamie King and visual artists at the Moment Factory in a telecast on NBC.
After Janet Jackson’s infamous 2004 “wardrobe malfunction,” the NFL has been going with older, classic rock performers for the highly anticipated event. After Jackson and her co-star Justin Timberlake, Paul McCartney performed the following year. The next few years saw performances by The Rolling Stones, Prince, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, Bruce Springsteen and the Who.
Last year, the NFL mixed it up and The Black Eyed Peas, Usher and Slash stole the show.
