P!NK to sing national anthem at Super Bowl LII

We don't know yet which teams will be playing in Super Bowl LII, but we do know that the "Man of the Woods" himself, Justin Timberlake, will try to outdo Lady Gaga's jaw-dropping roof-jumping stunt with his own "Filthy" theatrics when he headlines this year's halftime show.

P!nk, whose Beautiful Trauma dropped in October 2017, will kick off Super Bowl LII celebrations with a performance of The National Anthem, Good Morning America reported Monday morning (January 8). Below are some of the most memorable National Anthem performances in Super Bowl history.

The three-time Grammy-winning artist will sing before kickoff on February 4 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

National Association of the Deaf actor and director Alexandria Wailes will sign both the national anthem and "America the handsome", according to Us Weekly.

She follows in the recent footsteps of the likes of Lady Gaga and Alicia Keys in singing the Star Spangled Banner, which was performed in 2017 by country and western star Luke Bryan.

Justin Timberlake will take the stage at halftime this year.

Pink hasn't officially commented on her involvement with the game, though she did tweet on January 6 that she was looking forward to a few major events in the first couple of months of 2018.

Jimmy then says: "You do half time?". The NFL does not pay performers to sing at the Super Bowl.
