Kelly Clarkson to sing national anthem at Super Bowl
American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson will sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl! Since NBC will air the most popular show in America this year, it’s only fitting that they include one of the advisors of The Voice on the show.
No official announcement has been made yet, but this news has been confirmed by the AP. Go Kelly!
“American Idol” Kelly Clarkson is set to perform at America’s most popular sporting event: the Super Bowl.
Clarkson has been chosen to sing the national anthem before the NFL championship game at Indianapolis on Feb. 5, a person familiar with Super Bowl entertainment plans told The Associated Press on Wednesday.
The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because no announcement has been made. The league is expected to reveal the anthem singer later this month.
Since becoming the first winner of “American Idol” a decade ago, Clarkson has sold more than 20 million albums worldwide and had more than a half-dozen singles reach the top 10 in the Billboard Hot 100.
Got Something to Add?
@shamannora That's a good question. I don't think she's getting paid -- but the publicity she'll get will be good. Maybe it will increase her album sales by 600%!
@Rickey for sure the publicity is worth it, alone. I thought they do get paid, in addition to that, though.
@shamannora For the anthem, I don't think so. Probably just a lot of perks before, during and after the game. Meet the players, etc.
