Though official word on Beyoncé's hire for the 2013 Super Bowl halftime show isn't expected until Wednesday, we have a really good source who says it's definitely a go: Beyoncé.
The singer posted a photo (above) to her Tumblr blog where she sports eye black, a grease that reduces glare for athletes playing in sun or stadium light. Written on the two panels is the date of Super Bowl XLVII -- Feb. 3, 2013.
She's also puckered up, glossed in red and presumably giving sports fans a big ol' wet one.
Bey is beyond capable of the job, but there's definitely some pressure there: Madonna's 2012 spectacular was almost universally praised, and the telecast itself was the highest rated in Super Bowl history at about 111 million viewers.
But this is Beyoncé. She who was the first solo female act to headline the UK's Glastonbury Festival, sparked viral dance fever with "Single Ladies" and is one half the genetic makeup of music's royal baby Blue Ivy.
