For anyone who is simply tuning in for the hotly awaited halftime show, this year’s celebrity appearances are set to include performances from British band Coldplay and crooner Bruno Mars. Meanwhile, 29-year-old Artpop diva Lady Gaga is expected to perform the American national anthem, The Star Spangled Banner.

Staying true to the star-studded spirit in the air, Beyoncé is set to grace the stage tonight for her fourth official Super Bowl halftime appearance. According to sports website SBNation.com, the 7/11 diva last headlined at the Super Bowl 47 in 2013, while Bruno Mars performed at the Super Bowl 48 in 2014. Will the two stars live up to their previous halftime appearances? Fans will have to keep their eyes (and ears) open during tonight’s Big Game to find out.

Of course, you may also want to keep score and tuck into a plate of tempting nachos as you sport your team colours with pride. Although you may not be cheering from the stands yourself, there’s no question that it’s officially “game on” tonight!
