Who Will Sing The National Anthem At Super Bowl LII? Hint…HER NAME IS A COLOR!
We already know Justin Timberlake will be performing at halftime during Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis on Sunday, February 4. His latest studio album will be released two days before the event, so it’s safe to say this February will be the biggest February of Timberlake’s career.
But he won’t be the only entertainment at the Super Bowl. Someone has to sing the national anthem, right? Even if no one feels like standing for it. Luke Bryan performed it last year, and before him there was Lady Gaga, Alicia Keys, Kelly Clarkson and Christina Aguilera.
So who will kick off the Super Bowl this year? Pink. The announcement was made on the NFL network’s Good Morning Football program on Monday, Jan. 4.
It’s safe to say people are pleased with the decision. One fan wrote on Twitter, “I finally care about about SPORTS BALL!” and another fan wrote, “This made my week, and it’s only Monday!! Now, if only it were the half time show.”
By the way, according to people who know what they’re talking about (aka not me) the national anthem is one of the hardest songs to perform for a singer. Michael Dean, director of vocal studies at UCLA, told ABC News the following…
“The song goes from the lowest extreme of the voice to the highest extreme of the voice. The thing people forget to do is start the piece low enough so that the high notes are not too high for them at the end.”
You hear that, Pink? START LOW! END HIGH! That’s also great advice for the bedroom.
