Beyonce’s not a kid anymore.

But when it comes to Super Bowl halftime show headliners, she is.

The 31-year-old pop star will be the headliner at this year’s big game in New Orleans, according to the Associated Press.

Her selection reverses a geriatric rocker trend that started after Janet Jackson’s infamous “wardrobe malfunction” at Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004.

Since then, the average age of a halftime headliner is 55.

Here’s a look at each Super Bowl headliner since 2005 and their age when they hit the stage:

Super Bowl XXXIX: Paul McCartney, 62

Super Bowl XL: The Rolling Stones (Mick Jagger, 62)

Super Bowl XLI: Prince, 48

Super Bowl XLII: Tom Petty, 57

Super Bowl XLIII: Bruce Springsteen, 59

Super Bowl XLIV: The Who (Pete Townshend, 64)

Super Bowl XLV: The Black Eyed Peas (Fergie, 35)

Super Bowl XLVI: Madonna, 53
