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.
