The 2018 Super Bowl national anthem singer has been announced.
On Monday morning, it was announced on “Good Morning Football” that recording artist Pink will be singing the “Star Spangled Banner” to kickoff the festivities at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis for Super Bowl 52.
It is the first time that Pink will be making a Super Bowl appearance.
From the official release:
Pink follows in the footsteps of country star Luke Bryant, who sang the “Star Spangled Banner” at Super Bowl LI in Houston. Other recent performers include Lady Gaga, Idina Menzel, Kelly Clarkson and Alicia Keys.
Gaga’s well-received performance at Super Bowl 50 helped open the doors for her halftime gig the following year, so perhaps we should start looking at these assignments as something of an audition in front of 111 million people.
We don’t know who will be playing in the game jut yet, but there are only eight candidates remaining. In the AFC, the New England Patriots, Pittsburgh Steelers, Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans remain. In the NFC, it comes down to the Philadelphia Eagles, Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons.
Super Bowl 52 is set to take place on Sunday, Feb. 4.
