Spoiler alert: We already know who’s going to be in the Super Bowl.
Well, the halftime show anyway. Madonna will headline the extravaganza, according to SB Nation (dot) com. The 53-year-old Material Girl continues the NFL’s recent tradition of recruiting musical legends to perform between halves.
Over the last 10 years, the Super Bowl halftime show has featured such artists as Prince, The Who, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen.
The move toward securing older artists came in response to the outcry over the notorious Janet Jackson-Justin Timberlake “wardrobe malfunction” of 2004.
The Black Eyed Peas halftime show this year was kind of terrible, which didn’t do younger artists any favors either. Anyway, Madonna will surely bring her A-game.
A cautionary note to halftime show producers, though: Do not, under any circumstances, adorn the stage with hydrangeas. Super Bowl XLVI is set for February 5
