I may not know the difference between kicking a foot goal and catching a touch ball (those are the correct terms, right?), and I’m pretty sure I have a slightly different definition of a tight end in my mind, but I do know that I’ll be tuning in to watch the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 5! Why?

After initial rumored reports, Madonna‘s camp has officially confirmed that she will be performing during the halftime show of Super Bowl XLVI!

From Madonna’s Facebook:

We are happy to confirm that Madonna will perform in the Bridgestone Super Bowl XLVI Halftime Show at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on Sunday, February 5, as announced during tonight’s game on NBC! The Material Girl has partnered with a creative team from Cirque du Soleil, Jamie King, and multimedia artists from Moment Factory, to create a signature performance for the Super Bowl’s Halftime Show, which will be broadcast worldwide.

Jamie King is the creative visionary behind most of today’s most gigantic tour productions, including Madonna‘s own Confessions Tour and Britney‘s Femme Fatale Tour. Plus, some Cirque Du Soleil high-flying acrobatics to boot?

This is going to be absolutely EPIC!
