After months of unconfirmed rumors. the pop megastar, 53, will indeed perform at the halftime show of the Bridgestone Super Bowl XLVI at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on Feb. 5, NBC and the NFL confirmed on Sunday.

The Grammy winning legend's stadium spectacle will be a collaboration with Cirque du Soleil, director Jamie King and "multimedia artists from Moment Factor," according to the statement.

With a viewership of around 162 million worldwide, Madonna's performance will be the perfect opportunity to sample new tunes from her as-yet-untitled twelfth studio album, out next year.

The "Music" singer is just the latest superstar to entertain fans at Super Bowl halftime shows: Black Eyed Peas, The Who, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Prince, the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and U2 have all performed at recent championship games.
