Multiple sources have confirmed to Us Weekly that Beyoncé will be joined on stage at the Super Bowl by her former bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams for their first performance as a group since 2006.
The magazine says Beyoncé will start the show solo, after which Rowland and Williams will join her for a medley of the group's songs, culminating in the world premiere performance of a brand new song, "Nuclear" (the existence of which we first learned about yesterday when the pop star announced the group would be releasing a new compilation album).
