It's Super Bowl time everybody! Are you ready for some FOOTBALL! We've gathered everything you need to know to enjoy the Super Bowl XLVII this weekend.
This Sunday, February 3, the Baltimore Ravens will face the San Francisco 49ers in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. Kick-off time is at 5:30 E.T. The game will air on CBS, or you can watch the game online for free at CBSsports.com. Over 100 million people are expected to watch -- and several more will watch the halftime show. Here's EVEN MORE on the Super Bowl, including the part we're most looking forward to...
Two brothers face off in this Super Bowl: John Harbaugh is head coach for the Ravens and Jim Harbaugh is head coach for the 49ers. Some are calling this the Harbaugh Bowls. No word yet on which team their mom is rooting for. (Both of them, of course!)
The teams are competing for the Lombardi Trophy. This will be the last game for Ravens Linebacker Ray Lewis, who has had a 17-year career. Alicia Keys will sing the national anthem.
Now my favorite part: The halftime show!
Beyonce will join Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams for a Destiny's Child reunion. OR MAYBE SHE WON'T! We'll just have to wait and see.
What time? That's a good question, especially for those of us who don't live with football fans and aren't planning on tuning in until the halftime show. Football doesn't run on a strict schedule, and even though more people are expected to watch the halftime show than the actual game they can't schedule the game around the halftime show. (Even though they probably should, just saying). PopCrush estimates the halftime show will probably start around 8:00, 8:15.
Now let's talk about that set list. Us Weekly reports that Beyonce will kick off a solo set with "Crazy in Love." About halfway through Destiny's Child will start their set together and will sing "Bills, Bills, Bills," "Survivor," and "Nuclear." The entire halftime show runs 12 minutes long, so I'm guessing there will be more songs than this.
Beyonce is not getting paid by the NFL for her appearance (thought they are paying the dancers in her show). She appears as part of her $50 million deal with Pepsi. NFL is reimbursing her for production costs for the show.
Weather report for Sunday: Partly cloudy with a high of 69 degrees, but the show will go on regardless of the weather because it's an indoor gig.
Who will win? Beyonce, obviously!
