Destiny's Child, Elton John, Lenny Kravitz and Mary J Blige will headline America's NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE (NFL) OPENING KICKOFF - and they're on strict orders to be on their best behaviour.

Still reeling from Janet Jackson's Super Bowl "wardrobe malfunction" in February (04), when her exposed breast sparked a broadcasting decency shake-up, NFL bosses are promising to keep the newly-recruited stars in check.

NFL officials plan to attend rehearsals, monitor song selections, choreography and staging. The NFL has also been assured by record companies that their artists will be well-behaved.

The stars, including country singer Toby Keith, will headline the 9 September (04) pre-game show at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts, preceding the season opener between the INDIANAPOLIS COLTS and the NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS.

Jessica Simpson will perform at a separate show in Jacksonville, Florida.
