The big game may be adding a big name: Pop queen Beyoncé will reportedly join Coldplay on stage for the Super Bowl 50 halftime show next month, according to Entertainment Tonight.

Representatives for Beyoncé and Coldplay did not immediately reply to EW’s requests for comment. Should the report prove accurate, the halftime performance will mark a return to the Super Bowl for Beyonce, who headlined in 2013.

Phil Harvey, Coldplay’s artistic director, did tease last month that “special guests” will join the band, and the English rockers are well acquainted with Beyoncé: She joined the band on the party jam “Hymn for the Weekend,” off Coldplay’s new record A Head Full of Dreams.

Speaking to EW about the collaboration in November, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin said Beyoncé is “all goodness.” He added, “This album is about celebrating and this angel figure kept popping up and I was thinking, ‘Gosh, Beyoncé would be perfect, but she’d never do it.’ One day, we were talking and I was trying to drop the hint, but I didn’t want to be imprudent. And she said, ‘I’ll do it.’
