NEW YORK -- Beyoncé is returning to the Super Bowl halftime show.

Pepsi confirmed to The Associated Press on Thursday that the 34-year-old singer will perform at the Feb. 7 show at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Last month, Coldplay announced they would perform at the halftime show.

Beyoncé headlined the 2013 Pepsi Super Bowl halftime show in New Orleans at the Superdome, where she was joined by her Destiny Child's bandmates, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.

Beyoncé and Coldplay recently collaborated on the band's new album, "A Head Full of Dreams." They also were both performers at the "Global Citizen Festival" in New York City in September.

Super Bowl 50 airs on Feb. 7 on CBS.

After the game, CBS will air special episodes from late-night hosts Stephen Colbert and James Corden.

Katy Perry, who performed at last year's Super Bowl, had the most-watched halftime show in history with 118 million viewers. Other past halftime headliners include Bruno Mars, Prince, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen, U2 and the Rolling Stones.
