Pink to sing national anthem at Super Bowl LII

Super Bowl LII will be held at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis in 2018

The NFL announced Monday that power pop princess P!NK will sing the anthem live on NBC prior to the big game.

Pop star Pink is set to sing the national anthem ahead of the February 4 title game at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, the NFL announced Monday.

The 38-year-old singer will be taking on the most patriotic performance at the Super Bowl 2018, as she's set to belt out the national anthem at the huge sporting event on 4 February. Super Bowl 51's performers included Luke Bryan singing the national anthem and Lady Gaga providing the halftime entertainment.

According to Dan Hanzus of NFL.com, the singer will perform the national anthem before the championship clash.

Timberlake, 36, has assured there won't be a similar occurrence this year.

The impressive gig comes just months after she released her new album "Beautiful Trauma" and will take place just days after this year's Grammys, in which she's expected to perform alongside the likes of Lady Gaga and Childish Gambino.

Jimmy then says: 'You do half time?'

The Super Bowl is the most-watched event on US television, drawing more than 100 million viewers. He performed at Super Bowl XXVIII in Houston in 2004, when he infamously pulled part of Janet Jackson's costume off, revealing her breast on national television and causing a major controversy.
