The Black Eyed Peas are to perform during the interval at the Super Bowl next year, organisers have said.

The Grammy award-winning group will play at the championship game on 6 February at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Last year's game, which featured The Who at half-time, was the most-watched programme in US TV history with 106.5 million viewers.

Previous acts have included the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, U2 and Prince.

The half-time show of Super Bowl in 2004 created controversy when Justin Timberlake ripped a piece of Janet Jackson's top, resulting in a glimpse of her right breast.

The pair said the incident was accidental, calling it a "wardrobe malfunction", but broadcaster CBS TV was fined $550,000 (£351,000) after hundreds of complaints from viewers.

The fine was subsequently revoked in July 2008.
