Before the Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers battle in Dallas for Super Bowl XLV, Christina Aguilera will take to the field to sing the National Anthem. The five-time Grammy winner has been practicing for this moment for awhile:
“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. “I am really excited to be part of such an iconic event.”
Aguilera’s pregame performance joins the line-up of Black Eyed Peas, who will show off their marginal talents during the Super Bowl XLV halftime show. Remember: There are strict rules about who the NFL can invite to perform during Super Bowls now. You must be either a formerly relevant, once iconic band from the 60s/70s, or be a wildly popular, yet untalented current top 40 act.
It should be interesting to see where Vegas sets the over/under on Aguilera’s version of the Anthem. It’ll probably be somewhere right at two minutes.
