Diddy, Nelly, Kid Rock, Aerosmith Playing At Super Bowl

Janet Jackson will also perform at February 1 game.

Are you ready for some football? If your name is P. Diddy, Nelly or Kid Rock, the answer is "yes." While fans have to wait until Sunday to find out who'll play in this year's Super Bowl, they don't have to wait any longer to find out who'll play at halftime.

The three will meet at the 50-yard line for the AOL Top Speed Super Bowl XXXVIII halftime performance, joining the previously announced Janet Jackson on February 1 at Reliant Stadium in Houston. Aerosmith will headline the pre-game festivities, which will also include classical singer Josh Groban honoring the crew of the Space Shuttle Columbia with his song "You Raise Me Up." Beyoncé, a Houston native, will kick off the event by singing the national anthem.

The game will air on CBS, and MTV will produce the halftime show. In 2001 MTV produced the halftime show for Super Bowl XXXV, where the Baltimore Ravens beat the New York Giants at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.

This will be both Nelly and Aerosmith's second time performing at the event. Both took part in the 2001 halftime show, which also featured performances by 'NSYNC along with special guests Britney Spears and Mary J. Blige (see "Britney, Nelly Joining Aerosmith At Super Bowl").
