The 2013 Super Bowl Halftime Show will feature Beyonce. However, it's the "surprise" guests that has everyone guessing. Who, if anyone, will join Beyonce on stage during the intermission?
The 2013 Super Bowl kicks off at 6:30pm Eastern tonight, with the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers facing off for the Lombardi Trophy. The game's halftime show this year will feature Beyonce. However, the speculation about who could be joining Beyonce is still swirling.
Could Beyonce's husband, Jay-Z, be featured during the show? Jay-Z was a part of the pre-Super Bowl festivities this week, and could be an easy signing partner for Beyonce. According to Bovada's betting lines, the chances of Jay-Z performing is nearly 50/50.
The other rumor that seems to keep coming up is the possibility that Destiny's Child, Beyonce's original group, could make a reunion appearance during the game. Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, LaTavia Roberson, and LeToya Luckett originally formed the group, releasing their self-titled debut album in 1998.
In 1999, the quartet released The Writing's on the Wall, which included "Say My Name" and "Bills, Bills, Bills." After the release of the album, Roberson and Luckett left the group, being replaced by Michelle Williams - who was introduced to the world in the "Say My Name" video.
The now trio would release two more albums, 2001's Survivor and 2004's Destiny Fulfilled, before breaking up.
During her press conference earlier this week, Beyonce was asked if there could be a reunion with Rowland and Williams in the future. "Well, we just had a new release - the love songs Destiny's Child album," she replied. "We did a new song. It was so exciting to hear us together again. I just kind of dropped on the floor and felt like a little teenager again when I heard us harmonize. There's nothing like our connection and the sisterhood we have. So it's always such a pleasure to be around them professionally and personally."
When asked more directly if Destiny's Child or Jay-Z would be joining her on stage tonight, Beyonce answered, "I can't really give you any details. I'm sorry."
Looks like we will have to wait until halftime to confirm what everyone seems to already know will happen. Beyonce will take the stage tonight, then Jay-Z and Destiny's Child will likely both join her.
