Prince headliner at Superbowl halftime show

Rock and Roll will take center stage during halftime at the Superbowl for the third consecutive year when funk pioneer Prince follows in the footsteps of Paul McCartney and the Rolling Stones, the show's organizers said Sunday.

The six-time Grammy Award winner, who last week was nominated for several more, will be the main entertainment for one of television's highest rated shows. Prince will headline the Super Bowl halftime entertainment in Miami on Feb. 4, 2007.

Prince, famous for hits such as "Kiss," "Purple Rain," "Let's Go Crazy" and "Little Red Corvette," will perform at the game at Dolphin Stadium near Miami.

Organizers have been more cautious in choosing the entertainer for the Super Bowl's halftime show since Janet Jackson's infamous "wardrobe malfunction" in 2004. At the end of a duet with pop singer Justin Timberlake, the former boy band member ripped away part of Jackson's costume and revealed her naked breast before millions of viewers.

More than half a million complaints the incident to the Federal Communications Commission were registered, which prompted a widespread crackdown on broadcasters by the U.S. regulator. CBS, which was that year's Super Bowl broadcaster, was also issued a massive fine for infringing decency standards.

Halftime organizers in 2005 went with McCartney, a choice likely to be controversial. However, there were a handful of complaints registered about the former Beatle after the show.

Last year's pick, the Rolling Stones, was also considered to be relatively safe.

However, there was a delay placed on the broadcast and, during the performance, Mick Jagger's microphone was silenced while he sang some sexually suggestive lyrics during the band's short set.

While Prince also shot to fame with raunchy music and lyrics, the perennially popular artist has since toned down his material and performances after becoming a Jehovah's Witness.
