Super Bowl 2013 Halftime Show: Beyonce to Perform New Single 'Ratchet,' 'Bootylicious,' Survivor' With Destiny's Child? [HEAR IT NOW]
Fans are excited that their favorite pop singer Beyoncé is performing at this year's Super Bowl Halftime Show, and they want to know what songs she will be singing. We have a few ideas.
The 31-year-old R&B/pop singer will take the stage at halftime on Feb. 3 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, and the rest of Destiny's Child, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, will join her on stage, according to Us Weekly sources.
Beyoncé will open the show with a solo, and then midway through her performance, Rowland and Williams will appear onstage and launch into a short medley of the group's hits, "culminating in a brand-new song, 'Nuclear,' their first original material in more than eight years."

"After, Beyoncé will take center stage again for the big finale, which is said to include the debut of a track from her upcoming fifth album," the report said.
Another rumor is that Beyoncé will perform a new single from her new album she's working on in the studio.
According to HollywoodLife.com, the title of Beyoncé's newest single is allegedly "Ratchet." The single was leaked and MediaTakeOut.com reportedly had access to the song, saying "the song sounded AMAZING. Had us bouncing up and down and er'rything!!"
They also added that if the rest of her songs follow suit, "she's got a MEGA HIT ALBUM on her hands."
A part of the new album, Beyoncé is said to have collaborated with artists like Hit-Boy, Kanye West, Ryan Tedder, Miguel, and possibly her beau Jay-Z.
CNN speculated that Beyoncé would add New Orleans hometown artists like Frank Ocean. Ocean and the popular singer worked on her "4" album together. Jay Z may also "drop in a few bars" during her halftime performance. The report also said that she might sing her hit down "Countdown" to go along with her "Countdown to Touchdown" photo. Some of her other hit singles she might perform are "Single Ladies," "Crazy in Love," and "Bootylicious" with Destiny's Child.
Entertainment Weekly said that Destiny's Child "are the only contemporaries that have a shot at an appearance" because her performance is only about 10-15 minutes and "can't see her wanting to share the stage with many people, especially those who might be silly enough to try and upstage her."
USA Today thinks that Beyoncé may incorporate musical New Orleans flavor into her performance.
"Whether through jazz or Dixieland horns or the blues, the city's rich musical heritage should be highlighted," the report said.
