Beyonce will join Coldplay for Super Bowl 50’s halftime show. She will presumably join the group for a rendition of its single “Hymn for the Weekend,” which features her vocals.

Beyonce was the featured performer at the halftime show in New Orleans in 2013, performing “Single Ladies” and “Crazy in Love,” and also treating fans to a brief reunion of Destiny’s Child when half of the lights at the Superdome went out.

The Coldplay connection? Frontman Chris Martin is pals with Beyonce and her husband, rapper Jay Z.

Maybe Greg Schiano wasn’t the problem in Tampa Bay Maybe the former Rutgers coach wasn’t the only problem in Tampa.

He recently joked with late-night talk show host James Corden about what it’s like to work with the two music superstars.

“You get summoned to their castle, then you wait for about a week in a small room, where you’re just fed very minimally,” Martin said. “And if you survive that … whoever survives that, you get through to the next stage, where you get to play tennis with Jay. And if you beat him twice, you get sent through to meet the rest of Destiny’s Child.”
