Beyoncé to perform at Super Bowl 50 half-time show

BEYONCÉ is set to perform with Coldplay at this year's Super Bowl 50 half-time show.

The 'XO' hitmaker, 34, who previously headlined the event in 2013, will join the band during their 12-minute slot at the annual championship game of the National Football League at the Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California on February 7.

The news was announced by Pepsi - the show's sponsor - just four weeks after the 'A Sky Full of Stars' hitmakers confirmed they were taking the headline slot.

However, the group - which is the first British act to take the slot since The Who in 2010 - is starting to feel the pressure as an audience of 115 million will tune in to watch the band.

Frontman Chris Martin said recently: "We get a couple of weeks off but then we're preparing for the Super Bowl.

"It's a huge show so there's a lot of pressure and we've already started planning what we want to do."

Meanwhile, it's hardly surprising the four-piece - consisting of Chris, Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland and Will Champion - are feeling the heat as they follow in the footsteps of Katy Perry who made history last year when 118 million viewers tuned in to watch her perform.
