Madonna will perform at half-time during the US Super Bowl in February 2012.
NBC, which broadcasts American football's biggest game, announced that the queen of pop will take to the stage in Indianapolis on February 5.
The Super Bowl half-time show is the most-watched musical event of the year.
More than 162 million US TV viewers watched The Black Eyed Peas' performance last February.
Madonna, a Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame inductee, joins acts including Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Prince, U2, Paul McCartney, The Who and the Rolling Stones to perform during recent super bowls.
She will collaborate with a team from Cirque du Soleil, choreographer Jamie King and artists from Moment Factory.
