EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — After Beyonce’s amazing performance at halftime at the Super Bowl, who will do the honors next year? How about — nobody!

Next year’s Super Bowl in New Jersey may have no halftime show, because it could be too cold.

Super Bowl XLVIII will be played at MetLife Stadium, the open-air home of the Jets and Giants. It’ll be the first Super Bowl to be played outdoors in cold weather conditions.

Officials can’t figure out how to stage the halftime festivities in the frigid climate, sources told the New York Post.

They’re concerned about both the performers and the crews that have to set up and tear down the stage in just minutes.

Meantime, the Post says that lawyers, league officials and TV executives are trying to figure out protocols for a weather emergency, like a blizzard or ice storm.

Could the Super Bowl be postponed? And who would make the decision? League officials and the Super Bowl host committee declined to comment.

    Well, if they don't have a half-time performance, they'll lose a lot of viewers because I don't watch the game, but only the half-time performance and maybe the commercials.

    I'm all for it. I'm sick of football being used as a marketing tool. Get rid of these pathetic excuses for musical performers altogether. I turn off my TV during halftime as it is.

    Beyonce is a beautiful woman, beautiful voice, very sexy lady, can dance and move, but sometimes I just get tired and turned off by seeing women exploit their bodies almost X-rated. Every now and again, fine, but all the time? Even to songs that don't need exposed body parts? Okay, we get it. But enough is enough.

    NOT Amazing. How many times do we have to watch an artist surrounded by 50 dancers, doing the same EXACT performance as all the other artists in that genre? Can we keep remaking THRILLER over and over and over again? Not good enough to be up there alone performing are ya ??

    Ok – I understand it's the Superbowl…but its a game – its the best of the best – if there is no halftime show, so what!!!! It's about two teams coming together to show who is better – not who can shake their butt the most on stage. I love the halftime shows but don't let it affect the Superbowl. And…if it snows…so be it – IT'S FOOTBALL!!! It should be played in the snow!!! I was upset to not view any snow games this year! God – stop babying these guys!!!

    Beyonce's halftime kareoke was a joke just like her. She is so bad, stop and really listen to her lyrics and the musical composition of her songs, complete garbage. Whatever it is, she is attempting to do, sucks.

    If the best they can do is Beyonce, then don't waste the airtime and money. That was such a poor example for all ages of viewers to see. I would rather take that time to clean out hog pens than to see and listen to trash like that.
