With just under 2 weeks to go to Super Bowl XLV we learn today that popstar turned actress Christina Aguilera has been tapped to sing the national anthem at the start of the big game next month.
We told you a few weeks ago that Christina Aguilera will be part of the Super Bowl XLV pregame festivities. But now Fox and the NFL have officially announced it. She’ll belt out the national anthem at Cowboys Stadium in North Texas on Feb.6. The performance will be televised live on Fox prior to kickoff. Don’t be nervous, Christina, but more than 153 million viewers in the U.S. watched last year’s Super Bowl, the most-watched television program in history. The pregame show and Super Bowl XLV will be broadcast worldwide. “I have been performing the Anthem since I was seven years old and I must say the Super Bowl is a dream come true,” Aguilera said in a statement. “I am really excited to be part of such an iconic event.”
On the plus side, Xtina has a very big voice and I’m sure she will do The Star-Spangled Banner justice. On the down side, Xtina tends to overdo things a bit when she belts out big songs. So … now you have all the information you need to determine if you want to tune in for the Super Bowl XLV pre-game show or not ;)
