Barbadian pop Superstar Rihanna will headline the half-time show at February's Super Bowl in Arizona, the NFL has announced.

The nine-time Grammy winner will be performing in what is considered as one of the most coveted slots in music, with this year's 14-minute spectacle drawing in more than 120 million viewers, the NFL said.

The 34-year-old headlines a line-up which includes Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J Blige and Kendrick Lamar.

The show earned an Emmy Award for Outstanding Variety Special (Live).

"Rihanna is a once in a generation artist who has been a cultural force throughout her career," the NFL's head of Music Seth Dudowsky said.
