Alicia Keys will be singing Francis Scott Key at the Super Bowl, CBS and the NFL announced Friday.
The Grammy winner will belt the national anthem in New Orleans on Feb. 3, which sets the stage for a dual-divas duel: Keys at kickoff and Beyonce at halftime.
It will be Keys’ third time on the Super Bowl stage, the most by any performer in the game’s history. In 2005, she sang America the Beautiful with 150 students from the Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind and returned three years later to perform as part of the pregame show.
This year’s Super Bowl chanteuses will swap places this Monday at the inauguration: Beyonce is slated to belt The Star-Spangled Banner at the swearing-in ceremony, and Keys will perform at the Commander-in-Chief’s Ball alongside Jennifer Hudson.
Alicia doing the national anthem and gangstaboo Bey doing the halftime show? This should be a Superbowl to remember.
