Big names in music are still being added to the list of artists that are to participate in the celebrations surrounding the 45th Super Bowl live broadcast from Arlington, Texas, on Sunday, February 6, 2011.
The first known artist, and usually the most important, is always the one that will perform on the halftime show.
This year the honor goes to the Black Eyed Peas, who will enjoy one of world’s most important television platforms, with the number of listeners on the planet surpassing half a billion.
“It’ll be a party in the middle of the game,” Fergie, the lead singer of the group, told People. “All of the sudden, whether your team is winning or losing, we want to make you have a good time. That’s our goal.”
On Thursday, it was announced that the group will share their moment of glory with two other international artists, namely Usher and guitarist Slash, who will join the quartet on stage.
Other names include Maroon 5, who will perform during the pre-game festivities on Sunday, Christina Aguilera who will be singing the American national anthem, Lea Michele, Keith Urban and the Blue Man Group.
