Madonna has been rumored to be the Super Bowl halftime show performer in years past, including in 2000, when plans fell through at the last minute.
But the singer plans to release a new album next spring, and performing in front of such a large television audience -- 111 million viewers saw last year's Super Bowl -- could provide a boost for record sales.
So, performing at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis is definitely a good career move for Madonna, but is it something for Super Bowl XLVI viewers to get excited about?
After last year's weird Black Eyed Peas show … maybe. Fergie aside, Madonna would be the first female solo performer to hit the halftime stage since Janet Jackson's infamous 2004 stint that brought the phrase "wardrobe malfunction" into our lives.
And though old school, '80s-era Madonna isn't likely to show up and ruffle any feathers, she is known for putting on a great concert, and it's fun to imagine what she might do with a performance of this scale.
On the other hand, when you think football, Madonna definitely isn't the first (or second, or third, or 25th) performer who comes to mind.
So, tell us, what do you think?
