Auditions open for halftime

– All the single ladies – and fellas – will have a chance to join Beyoncé onstage at the upcoming Super Bowl.

Pepsi announced Friday that 100 fans will hit the stage when the Grammy-winning diva performs on Feb. 3 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. A contest that kicked off Saturday will allow fans to submit photos of themselves in various poses, including head bopping, feet tapping and hip shaking. Those pictures will be used in a TV ad introducing Beyoncé’s halftime performance, and 50 people – along with a friend – will be selected to join the singer onstage.

The photo contest – at www.pepsi.com/halftime – ends Jan. 19, but Jan. 11 is the cut-off date for those interested in appearing onstage with Beyoncé.
