Beyonce will play the Super Bowl halftime show next year, a source told the Associated Press.

Darn. I had Liza Minnelli in the office pool.

The official announcement will be made Wednesday. Beyonce's people haven't commented on the story.

Super Bowl XLVII is scheduled for Feb. 3 in New Orleans.

The mother of 9-month-old Blue Ivy, Beyonce most recently performed alongside husband Jay-Z during his Oct. 6 show at Brooklyn's new Barclays Center.

During last year's halftime show, Madonna collaborated with LMFAO, Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. into her 12-minute performance. M.I.A. ignited controversy by flipping an obscene gesture during her bit.

There's no word yet on whether Beyonce will incorporate any other acts into her show. Though some of us thing it might be fun if she invited Minaj and Mariah Carey to perform, without telling either the other performer will be there.
