NEW ORLEANS -- Superstar Beyonce is going to be part of the Super Bowl halftime show, a source familiar with the Super Bowl told the Associated Press.

The Grammy-winner will take the stage for the Pepsi Halftime Show on Feb. 3, 2013 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, according to the source.

The official announcement is expected to be made on Wednesday.

Beyonce previously sang the national anthem at the 2004 Super Bowl in her hometown of Houston when the New England Patriots beat the Carolina Panthers.

Madonna headlined last year's Super Bowl halftime show, with guests CeeLo Green, Nicki Minaj, LMFAO and M.I.A.

Next year's game will be the first NFL championship hosted by New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina devastated parts of the Louisiana Superdome in 2005.
