How do you like the choice of Madonna for Super Bowl halftime entertainment?
Madonna Louise Ciccone, (much) better known as simply Madonna, was announced for arguably the highest-profile gig in show business. Madonna, who has sold more than 300 million records, will perform at halftime of the Super Bowl in Indianapolis on Feb. 5.
Just before heading to New York to pursue fame and fortune in the late 1970s, Madonna spent three terms studying dance at the University of Michigan. She was born in Bay City and grew up in Rochester.

The Super Bowl halftime show is the most-watched musical event of the year, with more than 162 million in the U.S. tuning in to see The Black Eyed Peas' performance with Slash and Usher in Dallas at halftime of Green Bay's Super Bowl win over Pittsburgh last February.
Madonna, a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, will join such acts as Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Prince, U2, Paul McCartney, The Who and the Rolling Stones to perform during recent Super Bowls. She will collaborate with a team from Cirque du Soleil, choreographer Jamie King, and artists from Moment Factory.
Madonna, currently in the studio working on a new album, has a new film "W.E." which she directed, wrote and produced and will open nationally two days before the NFL's signature event.
