Super Bowl Halftime Show
If the rumors are to be believed, Katy Perry has been tapped as a performer for the Super Bowl XLIX Hafltime Show.
Reports that the NFL would now require Super Bowl performers to pay starting this year surfaced recently. But, if Perry is indeed the Super Bowl XLIX Hafltime Show she probably didn’t pay for it.
“I’m not the kind of girl who would pay to play the Super Bowl,” she said during an appearance on ESPN’s College Game Day over the weekend.
Perry was among the list of rumored artists that the NFL was supposedly considering earlier this year. Coldplay and Rihanna were also named as potential performers.
Last month Rihanna called out CBS via Twitter for pulling her song “Run this Town” from the Thursday Night Football lineup following the Ray Rice scandal.
Bruno Mars and Beyonce were the last two Super Bowl halftime performers.
Beyonce took to the stage for an energetic 12-minute set during the halftime show at the Super Bowl. She started with a brief snippet of “Love On Top,” and ended with “Halo.” In between was tons of dancing, solos from her band and a Destiny’s Child appearance. Kelly and Michelle even helped Bey sing the first verse of “Single Ladies.”
Aside from her fabulous performance, Bey’s set was absolutely stunning!
For music fans, the best parts of the Super Bowl are the singing of the National Anthem and the halftime show. Since the late 80s/early 90s the halftime show has featured popular mainstream artists that appeal to a large audience, larger than life productions and even more memorable controversies.
Before Beyonce hits the stage in New Orleans on Sunday, Feb. 3, here’s a brief summary of the last 13 performances and the things that made them memorable.

So many things are still being kept a secret about Beyonce’s Super Bowl halftime show on Feb. 3 and with less than a week to go before showtime fans are anxious to see what’s in store! We previously reported that Destiny’s Child would be reuniting for a quick performance in the middle of Beyonce’s set, but Michelle Williams recently put those rumors to rest.
“I hate to disappoint the people and tell them that it’s not true,” she said in a recent interview with WRUG Media, before plugging her musical Fela and new gospel album that is due out this spring.
I guess that means the rumored Destiny’s Child setlist that was floating around the internet is fake, too. Unless, Williams is tricking us! Hmmmmm.
Are you disappointed?
As we get closer to Beyonce’s Super Bowl halftime show more details emerge. Earlier today it was announced that a new Destiny’s Child song and compilation album are on the way, and now USWeekly is reporting that Kelly and Michelle will join Beyonce during the Super Bowl halftime show.
The girls will come out in the middle of Bey’s set to perform a few of their hits, as well as their new song “Nuclear.”
Beyonce’s finale will reportedly include new material as well.
Prepare to be entertained!!
