NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The entertainment leading up to the Super Bowl is so A-list, Beyonce may not have the most anticipated performance surrounding Sunday's big game in New Orleans.

Justin Timberlake is scheduled to give his first major musical performance in four years. Stevie Wonder will perform at an outdoor concert. CeeLo is reuniting with his old hip-hop clique, Goodie Mob, and Rascal Flatts will team up with Journey for a concert. And that's only a fraction of the all-star events.

Indeed, much of the emphasis in the days leading up to the big event has very little to do with the game.

Lil Wayne is throwing a major bash in his hometown, Jay-Z will hold court at another event the evening before his wife, Beyonce, performs at halftime, and Jamie Foxx is due to give a private concert — and that's just the lineup for Saturday.
