Super Bowl 2012 Halftime Show: Madonna Will Perform, Most Likely Will Be Better Than Last Year's Act

Back in October, SB Nation broke the news that the NFL was going have Madonna perform during the halftime show of the 2012 Super Bowl. And choosing Madonna is likely the riskiest choice in the post-Nipplegate era of Super Bowl halftime shows.

Ever since the "wardrobe malfunction" Janet Jackson had while on stage with Justin Timberlake, the NFL has gone with some choices that haven't been the best choice. The league did have a three-year stretch that was great for people who like classic rock. Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band and the Who performed from 2008-2010. But then 2011 was a disaster with a combination of the Black Eyed Peas, Usher and Slash.

Maybe the Madonna selection will turn out all right. She might not be that current of an artist, but her music still permeates in area. But her new song, "Give Me All Your Luvin," might not be everyone's preferred choice of music for the show. Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. are supposedly going to be performing with Madonna since they are also in the video for the song.

Maybe this will be another yawner.
