UPDATE 8:10PM: Pepsi has confirmed to the Associated Press that Beyoncé will indeed perform at the Super Bowl halftime show this year with Coldplay. Get ready, #BeyHive.
See below for original story.
It looks like Coldplay is going all out for their Super Bowl halftime performance this year, as ET is now reporting that Beyoncé will join them onstage during the show. While there is no official confirmation from the NFL or Beyoncé, it would make sense that Queen Bey joins the band for the song "Hymn for the Weekend" from Coldplay's new album, A Head Full of Dreams. There were rumors of Beyoncé's involvement in the show when Coldplay was announced as the headliner, but nothing was confirmed until now.
If the Beyoncé news wasn't enough, ET previously reported that Bruno Mars will also join Coldplay at some point during the show. Of course, Beyoncé headlined the Super Bowl halftime show in 2013 with members of Destiny's Child, so she will be no stranger to the big stage. Seeing that Jay Z also has a strong relationship with Coldplay, you have to wonder if he will also make a special appearance. Super Bowl 50 is in San Francisco this year and will air on Feb. 7 on CBS. We'll continue to update this story as more details emerge.
