NEW YORK, Dec. 18 (UPI) -- Singer Janet Jackson will perform at the Super Bowl XXXVIII halftime show when football's biggest game is played Feb. 1, according to Thursday's Billboard.

The show, a coveted performance opportunity as the Super Bowl is among the most-watched programming worldwide, will be produced by MTV, which produced the show in 2001. That show featured Aerosmith, 'N Sync and Britney Spears.

Last year's Super Bowl entertainment included Shania Twain, No Doubt and Sting performing at halftime. Celine Dion, Carlos Santana, Michelle Branch and Beyoncé entertained during pre-game festivities, with the Dixie Chicks singing the National Anthem.

Jackson is currently working on a new album, due out in 2004 on Virgin Records. According to her official Web site, a world tour is planned following the album release.

The NFL championship game and halftime show will air live on CBS from Houston's Reliant Stadium.
