The NFL has scheduled several multi-Grammy winners to perform at the Super Bowl XLVII to draw in more viewers than last year. Super Bowl XLVI attracted roughly 111.3 million viewers and over 114 million for the halftime show. The show is considered the most highly watched show in television history.

Super Bowl XLVII will take place on Sunday, Feb. 3, in New Orleans, La., at the Mercedes Benz Superdome. Prior to the game, CBS will air the NFL Today Super Bowl XLVII pre-game show beginning at 11a.m.ET until 6:15 p.m. ET.

Highlights of the 7-plus hours pre-game show include a Scott Pelley interview with President Barack Obama and Oscar-award winning Jennifer Hudson will sing with students from the Sandy Hook Elementary School. NFL's spokesman Brian McCarthy that the 31-year-old singer will sing "America the Beautiful" with 26 children from the Newton' s Sandy Hook chorus. OneRepublic and Matchbox Twenty will also be part of the televised pre-game show.  

Just before the game between the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens goes underway to compete for the Lombardi Trophy, Alicia Keys will perform "The Star-Spangled Banner." She will perform three songs, not just the anthem. It will be the most amount of songs performed before the game in the event's history.

When the second quarter of the Super Bowl ends, "Halo" singer Beyonce will arrive on stage to headline the halftime show.

So far, there is no word on if the Houston native will collaborate with any other acts a' la Madonna-who brought LMFAO, M.I.A., Nicki Minaj and the Cirque DuSoleil on stage last year- but a source provided inside knowledge of what fans can expect during her 12-15 minute set.

A source told Us Weekly that the 31-year-old will kick off her performance with a solo set. Her lineup will begin with the dance number "Crazy in Love." Beyoncé's husband, rap mogul Jay-Z, may also perform with her because he lends his rap vocals on the track.

The source added there will be a Destiny's Child reunion during the Super Bowl halftime show. Kelly Rowland, 31, and Williams, 32, will join the Houston native on stage midway through her set to perform several of the group's chart-topping hits - including "Bills, Bills, Bills" and "Survivor" - and their new song "Nuclear" according to the source.

Williams, however, said she is unable to join her band mates on Sunday, Feb. 3 due to scheduling conflicts.

"I'm going to be in the musical 'Fela!'" Williams told radio station WRUG Media. "I hate to disappoint the people and tell them that it's not true."

"I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry," Williams added.

Beyonce held a Super Bowl press conference in New Orleans to address the lipsync scandal on Thursday. After she opened the media gathering by singing the National Anthem live, she answered questions from reporters. When asked if her husband Jay-Z will join her on stage, she played coy.

"I don't know," she said. "I can't really give you any details. I'm sorry."

When asked if there will be a Destiny's Child reunion on Sunday, she said couldn't "say too much unfortunately."

"We did just put out a new single, though," she added, "It was so exciting to hear us together again. There's nothing like the sisterhood we have so it's always exciting to be around them professionally and personally."

Super Bowl XLVII begins at 3:30 p.m. PT at 6:30 EST/5:30 p.m. CST and will be televised live on CBS.
