Will Kelly Clarkson Kick Off the Super Bowl?

The Associated Press has reported that Kelly Clarkson will sing the National Anthem at this year’s Super Bowl. The report has not been confirmed by the NFL.

The choice makes sense because Kelly has a lot of experience singing the Anthem at major sporting events, she appeals to a wide range of fans, and NBC seems eager to showcase her these days since she will be appearing as a mentor on “The Voice,” which will air immediately after the game.

Oh, and she’s awesome…

The AP also reported that Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert will be singing “America the Beautiful” during pregame ceremonies. Blake and Kelly are both represented by Reba McEntire’s husband, Narvel Blackstock.

The Super Bowl will air on NBC Sunday, February 5th
