Over 120 million people are expected to watch the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show. Today, December 3, the NFL and Pepsi will announce the Super Bowl 50 Halftime act. The announcement will be made live on Television during the NFL game Green Bay Packers versus Detroit Lions. 

The game kicks off at 8:25pm ET on CBS and NFL network. When exactly the Halftime Show announcement will be made has not been revealed. Obviously Halftime is a fitting slot to make the big reveal.

NFL stars are excited about the list of potential performers. Rumored acts include Cold Play, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears and Taylor Swift. Maroon 5 and even Metallica have been named in connection with the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show.

An early rumor that is not dying is that Bruno Mars will be back to perform a Super Bowl Halftime Show. He performed in 2014. If it is Bruno Mars, he would bring in at least one other performer, or even more to make the Halftime Show of Super Bowl 50 exceptional.

Female comedian Joselyn Hughes is not helping with her spoiler video of the Half-time Show announcement.

Here is another video where Joslyn tries to spoil the announcement of the Super Bowl 2016 Halftime Show act. You can only hear her scream "It's." With some imagination it could continue with "Britney, Bitch." But then, this could just be imagination, or Hughes trying to fool people. Watch below. What do you hear?

There has not been a solid leak yet about who will perform the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show. So far Pepsi and the NFL were able to keep the name of the performer or band absolutely secret. Fans will have to wait and watch Thursday Night Football at 8:25pm ET on CBS to find out first who will perform the Super Bowl Halftime Show 2016.

Pepsi is again the big sponsor of the Halftime Show and they will milk this sponsorship as hard as possible again. Expect massive amounts of commercials leading up to the Super Bowl 50 promoting the halftime show and  Pepsi.

The Super Bowl Halftime Show 2015 was performed by Katy Perry. Bruno Mars and Red Hot Chili Peppers rocked the stage in 2014. In 2013 it was Beyonce's and Destiny's Child that kept viewers glued to the screen. 

Super Bowl 2012 had a whole list of performers headed by Madonna. Other acts included LMFAO, Nicki Minaj, Cee Lo Green Andy Lewis and Cirque du Soleil.

Super Bowl 50 is Pepsi's 4th year as the title sponsor of the Super Bowl Halftime Show. It is the 14th year as an NFL partner. Pepsis said that the again provide fans with a halftime show worthy of pop-culture's biggest stage.
