Madonna - Madonna To Perform At Super Bowl

Madonna is to perform at next year's Super Bowl.

The 'Hung Up' hitmaker has reportedly beaten off competition from Lady Gaga to headline the annual NFL match in February and will use the show to re-launch her music career after taking a break to direct new movie 'W.E'.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "When Madonna heard Gaga was in the frame, she knew she had to step up her efforts. She is going to deliver the kind of show never seen before in NFL history."

In headlining the prestigious sporting event, Madonna, 52, is following in the footsteps of stars including the Rolling Stones, Black Eyed Peas, Justin Timberlake and the late Michael Jackson.

After this year's game - between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers - Christina Aguilera was forced to apologise after fluffing her lines to the US national anthem

The 'Burlesque' star was given the prestigious task of performing the Star-Spangled Banner to open the proceedings ahead of the showpiece game in Texas but shocked onlookers with her mistake.

Instead of the correct line "O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?" the 30-year-old singer repeated an earlier line with a slight variation, singing "What so proudly we watched at the twilight's last gleaming."

Christina later released an apologetic statement saying: "I got so caught up in the moment of the song that I lost my place. I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through."

Clam it Kristen. While I agree w/ u about the pic (Madonna DOES look better than this) I can assure you that FOR ONCE SOMEONE has better taste than to give everything to "Madonna-Wannabe" Gag-Gag. & I could care less about Christina's flub. She should've known better, but hey, accidents happen. Get over it already America. Back to Madonna... Although Madonna (in my heart) will NEVER top Michael's '91 Super Bowl performance, I KNOW that this coming January, I WILL BE WATCHING! Madonna performing @ the Super Bowl. All I can say is 'bout time.
