Only a few hours are left for the much-awaited Super Bowl 2012 to begin and the excitement has completely gone into overdrive.
Super Bowl fans are already eyeing Madonna, who is set to perform at the Super Bowl Halftime Show Sunday, and this is certainly making the pop queen nervous.
I have to say in over 25 years of performing that I have done, I have never worked so hard or been so scrupulous or detail-oriented or freaked out as much as I have maintaining my sanity and trying to make the most amazing show for the Super Bowl, she told reporters at the NFL news conference Thursday.
Madonna is expected to perform on her latest track Gimmie All Your Luvin, and she will be joined by rap goddess Nicki Minaj, MIA, Cee Lo Green and LMFAO.
The match will be streamed live for the first time in the events history from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on NBCSports.com and NFL.com, starting from 6:30 p.m. EST Sunday.
According to estimates, more than a hundred million Americans are expected to tune-in the epic game.
It's not only the game that people look forward to during the Super Bowl; it's the epic halftime performances that have created a lot of buzz in the past years.
Biggies like Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Britney Spears, Nelly, U2, Justin Timberlake, Paul McCartney, Prince and several others have set a very high mark in the previous years by their tremendous performances at the halftime shows.
