Brian Jones for Super Bowl halftime entertainment are getting at least some satisfaction: Stevie Wonder will perform during the pre-game show at Ford Field.

NFL (US) n abbr (= National Football League) → Fußball-Nationalliga spokesman Brian McCarthy said the league wasn't prepared to make an announcement about the pre-game show. However, he said, ``We would be thrilled to be able to work with Stevie Wonder again.''
Wonder performed during halftime in 1999.
The NFL's announcement last week that the Rolling Stones would provide the halftime entertainment prompted an uproar in Detroit, the original home of Motown Records, the label for artists such as Wonder, Smokey Robinson, the Supremes and the Four Tops.
Detroit-area residents are fiercely proud of the city's musical contributions, which extend beyond Motown to more recent stars including Eminem and Kid Rock.
Aretha Franklin's career started at the Detroit church where her father preached, and the Queen of Soul still lives in the area. Ted Nugent, Madonna and Bob Seger also hail from Michigan.
Many saw it as a snub that those stars were passed over for halftime. Detroit radio personality Mildred Gaddis gave out the phone number of an NFL official on the air and urged listeners to call and complain.
