There’s only one direction for the February 3 Super Bowl to go: bigger. And apparently, that’s just what it got.
You already knew that Beyoncé was going to rip it up at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans during the halftime show. And that she’s launched a contest inviting fans to get in on the action during the on-air introduction before the show.
But now, on the heels of Thursday’s announcement that Destiny’s Child will drop the compilation album Love Songs on January 29 — including the newly recorded track “Nuclear” — Us Magazine has reported that DC will reunite onstage during the festivities.
According to the report, multiple sources close to the group said that Beyoncé will be joined on stage by DC mates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams during halftime for a medley of the group’s hits that will culminate with “Nuclear.”
The sources said Bey will open the show solo, then be joined by Williams and Rowland midway through for a run through their stellar catalog and the first new tune from them in more than eight years. If the reports are accurate, it will be their first live performance as a group since a farewell gig at the 2006 NBA All-Star game.
The extravaganza will reportedly end with Beyoncé solo again for a finale that will include the as-yet-unannounced first single from her upcoming fifth solo album.
A spokesperson for DC could not be reached for confirmation of the halftime reunion gig at press time.
