Bon Jovi at Super Bowl XLIV in 2010- Singer to Perform in Miami?

Sources within the Bon Jovi camp tell me that the band has been asked by NFL officials to perform at the Superbowl XLIV Halftime Show in 2010. Having Bon Jovi perform may give the Halftime Show some ounce of respect after this year's Bruce Springsteen debacle, when he 'performed' what seemed to be a Bruce Springsteen Vegas parody act while 'singing' like he was being pleasured with finger knives.
There has been no official response yet from Bon Jovi, but Iím inclined to say that they would accept, especially since this type of performance guarantees exposure. Many acts actually turn down the Superbowl Halftime Show because they are afraid if they give a bad performance, the exposure would be as well.
Besides the Bruce Springsteen debacle this year, Janet Jackson had her career ruined Ė unfairly so Ė when she exposed her breast at 2004ís show.
If Bon Jovi does perform, I would like to see them perform what I think are some of the best written and produced songs ever: Liviní on a Prayer; Living in Sin, Iíll Be There For You, and Who Says You Canít Go Home. Letís keep our fingers crossed for a Bon Jovi Superbowl performance next year.
