Alicia Keys will sing national anthem at Super Bowl

Alicia Keys has been tapped to sing the national anthem at February's Super Bowl XLVII.

The "Girl on Fire" songstress will belt out the Star Spangled Banner during the pregame festivities at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. As was the case in the past, you'll catch her performance prior to kickoff. (And if we may, Ms. Keys, you might want to brush up on those lyrics - we all still remember what happened with Christina Aguilera.)

Of course, Keys joins a long list of legends who have sung the nation's anthem ahead of the Super Bowl, including Diana Ross, Whitney Houston, Billy Joel, Faith Hill, Mariah Carey and more.

The Super Bowl airs on CBS February 3, with Beyonce performing during the Halftime show.

    Mercedes-Benz traces its origins to Karl Benz's creation of the first petrol-powered car, the Benz Patent Motorwagen, patented in January 1886[3] and Gottlieb Daimler and engineer Wilhelm Maybach's conversion of a stagecoach by the addition of a petrol engine later that year. The Mercedes automobile was first marketed in 1901 by Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft. ..`;^

    Gawd how I hope she goes ultra soul diva and turns it into a 45 minute series of screaming arpeggios. With any luck she'll throw in some Spanish.
