The line-up for the highly anticipated Super Bowl halftime show just got a little bit more interesting.

Usher and Slash are scheduled to hit the stage during the upcoming upcoming Super Bowl XLV halftime show. The two rock stars will join fellow rock stars Black Eyed Peas in Arlington, TX.

A source close to the event told the AP that the R&B artist and the Guns N’ Roses guitarist will be featured in a special “surprise” portion of the much publicized halftime show. This year’s show serves as the first halftime show featuring young Pop acts since the big Janet Jackson/Justin Timberlake incident back in 2004.

Both Usher and Slash have worked with BEP members before, with Slash previously taking the stage with the group for a rendition of “Sweet Child O’ Mine” (a popular Guns N’ Roses song) at the 2009 Rose Bowl, and appearing on Usher’s hit single “OMG.”

Reps for the Super Bowl have neither confirmed nor denied Usher and Slash’s appearances.
