On Jan. 20, the San Francisco 49ers successfully beat the Atlanta Falcons and the Baltimore Ravens beat the New England Patriots, confirming that the Ravens and 49ers will go head-to-head at the 47th Super Bowl game.

Super Bowl XLVII will take place on Sunday, Feb. 3, in New Orleans, La., at the Mercedes Benz Superdome. The game kicks off at 6: 30 EST/5:30 p.m. CST and will be televised live on CBS.

For the first time in Super Bowl history two brothers will face off against each other: John Harbaugh coaches the Ravens and his sibling, Jim Harbaugh, leads the 49ers. The two brothers will go against each other with the goal of walking away with the NFL season's top prize- the Lombardi Trophy.

Jim called the opportunity of competing in the Super Bowl against his brother a "blessing and a curse" because he was once a quarterback for the Ravens when the starting middle linebacker was Ray Lewis, who is still with the Ravens and will retire after this season.

The 47th Super Bowl will attract more than football fans now that the NFL has recruited 16-time Grammy award winner Beyoncé as the featured performer for the halftime show. The Houston native garnered more buzz for her performance since it was announced that former Destiny's Child's group members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams are scheduled to join her onstage

The reunion will be the first for the group since 2006. According to Us Weekly, the trio will band together halfway through Beyonce's set to sing a new track from their fifth studio album, which is set for release on Jan. 29. The group's first single, titled "Nuclear," was recently released and will be performed at the 2013 Super Bowl. It is the first track from their upcoming album "Love Songs." 

Multi-Grammy winner Alicia Keys will set off the festivities by performing "The Star-Spangled Banner," according to a Billboard. It will mark Keys' third Super Bowl appearance and she will perform three songs, not just the anthem, which is the most amount of songs performed before the game in the event's history.

"Oh my goodness, I'm crazy excited about it. Being able to do the national anthem and actually set the whole game off is a dream come true. It's really exciting," Keys told MTV. "It's a historical moment, that day, so I'm looking forward to really doing it my style and my way, and I'm looking forward to really making it great." 

Pepsi will sponsor the Super Bowl halftime show, which is the most-watched musical event of the year. More than 112.5 million viewers in the U.S. alone watched last year's show and over 114 million tuned in just for the halftime show, which was headlined by Madonna.

Viewers also anticipate the new television commercials that will debut during the Super Bowl breaks. This year, advertisers spent up to almost $4 million to have their commercials aired, according to Forbes.

Fans can watch the Super Bowl XLVII live on NFL Mobile as well as through on their computers. Visit NFL.com/superbowl/47 for more information.
