Demi Lovato To Sing The National Anthem At The Super Bowl
Score! Demi Lovato will sing the National Anthem at the 2020 Super Bowl LIV pregame show at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday, February 2. Her perfomance will follow in the footsteps of many musical legends who lent their voice to football's biggest night.
The "Cool for the Summer" songstress, 27, is set to take the stage alongside Christine Sun Kim, who will sign the Anthem in American Sign Language. Demi announced the news on Instagram on January 16 and wrote, "Singing the National Anthem at #SBLIV ? ? ? See you in Miami ? @NFL."
Gladys Knight sang the National Anthem last year. Other icons who belted out the "The Star-Spangled Banner" included Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Luke Bryan, Whitney Houston, Diana Ross, Jennifer Hudson and Mariah Carey.
The Super Bowl arena isn't the only stage the Texas-born singer will be hitting in the upcoming weeks. Demi will also perform at the Grammy Awards on January 26.
Jennifer Lopez and Shakira will headline the Super Bowl LIV halftime show during game day. The 54th Super Bowl will take place in Miami Gardens, Florida. "We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Jennifer Lopez and Shakira to the stage. These two remarkable artists are setting a new precedent for what this show can become, and we’re confident that this will be an incredible performance for the ages," Todd Kaplan, Vice President and Marketing for Pepsi said in a statement.
In December 2019, Jennifer, 50, gave fans a sneak peek at her performance. In an Instagram video, the Hustlers star was surrounded by her backup dancers as they rehearsed for their act.
During an appearance on CBS This Morning on December 20, the "I'm Real" singer revealed that the upcoming performance will be split into two parts. This will allow her and Shakira, 42, to sing individually and bring their own flares to the show. “Shakira and I are not rehearsing together, she’s doing her show, I’m doing my show, but we’re going to do something together, for sure,” she said during the interview.
