Report: Alicia Keys To Perform National Anthem At Super Bowl 2013

Published: Friday 18th Jan 2013 by Sam

With Beyonce ensuring that this year’s Super Bowl is a must-see, music lovers now have even more reason to tune in to the football extravaganza. For, Alicia Keys has been confirmed as the latest act to be bestowed the honor of performing the US National Anthem at the February 3rd event.

Details after the jump…

According to the Associated Press, Keys will tackle the ‘Star Spangled Banner’ before the thousands in attendance at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans and the hundreds of millions watching at home.

The high-profile slot is undeniably a major coup for Keys – whose new album ‘Girl On Fire’ is holding steady on the charts following its release in November.

More than anything, the slot sees the singer-songwriter joins the elite list of female vocalists who have performed on the grand stage. They include Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, and Keys’ ‘Put It In A Love Song’ collaborator Beyonce.

Stay tuned for more tea as it’s poured.

      • Dev January 18, 2013

        Nah, i got it from your dad. All those nights when your mum was alone and you could hear her crying from your room its because he was with me! he wanted it rough and animalistic and with the passion he couldn’t get with your flat assed mum. Your dad was DL and only had you to keep your mum happy and his parents. He used to call me his chocolate pop and spend your electric money on me, when you were sitting in darkness i was sitting in gucci jeans, when you were hungry i was in fancy restaurants, and when your dad left you i got a sugar daddy. Your dad used to kiss my ass then, but you can kiss mine now b****!

  10. Tayana January 18, 2013

    Not going to watch… 🙁

  11. JOHNVIDAL January 18, 2013

    Man… Alicia´s Girl on Fire is one of 2012´s best and I love her artistry… but damn she better change the song completely cos that antional anthem is not for her type of voice. But hey everybody has sung it so Alicia has a right too
    Anyway, what´s up with some Rihanna fans hate towards Alicia Keys? I´ve noticed much of the recent hate comes from Rihanna fans… don´t ask me why the hell. Of course we also have the retarded prehistorical b****** who don´t know to mind their own business and cut the crap when they don´t even know a damn thing 🙂

    • RICHANDBLACK11 January 18, 2013

      John we have to keep in mind that most of Rihanna fans are rejects in life sad but so true.

      • Monstarebel (F** Boy) January 18, 2013

        Wow you act like people can’t have an opinion stfu n stop being so f****** sensitive dude

      • RICHANDBLACK11 January 18, 2013

        Im sorry monstarbel but it’s the truth, it’s no shade no tea.

        I like you and fresh Navi that’s apart of the Navy, that’s on this site.

      • JOHNVIDAL January 18, 2013

        I know! They truly are 🙂 And no I don´t like Beyonce as you seem to know, but damn I still have common sense. Rihanna fans giving a negative opinion about someone else´s voice or artistry… LMAO Alicia buries her. Alicia is an artist, and has done enough the whole past decade. Even if she has problems with her voice she will always remain more talented. Beyonce is obviously more talented than her too. It´s COMMON SENSE

      • I LOVE RIHANNA!!! January 18, 2013

        Its not the truth f**!!! *looks @ beysus over jesus* no b**** your group is the scum of the totem pole!!

    • FOLLOW ME @gdboyratedloud January 18, 2013

    Where’s Jennifer Hudson

    • MUSICHEAD January 18, 2013

      At home and uninvited as usual

  17. UMo January 18, 2013

    Rihanna fans hate other female artists who are both successful AND talented, because they know that while she may have the team to manipulate the former for her…no one can mask that she is the epitome of the word ‘untalented.’ So it’s a threat. Plus Alicia is prettier than Rihanna too. So that’s yet another thing they’re threatened by.

    Just like high school, where the frumpy, dumpy fat girls who aren’t good at anything and are never noticed (except to be laughed at) hate on the pretty popular girl who has a good attitude, is on the honor roll, head of student council, is voted prom queen, and is well liked by students, teachers and is heavily sought after by boys. That resentful frumpy, dumpy girl and her socially awkward gay best friend is basically the model of the Rihanna fan. That’s why they cling to Rihanna so hard, because there’s nothing innately “special” about her…despite her success…and they can relate to that more than they could an Alicia or a Beyonce, who is that model of the pretty popular girl whom everyone else generally likes.

    • Jer January 18, 2013

      ??? What does this have to so with anything

    They should’ve got brandy to do it its just Alicia nowadays her voice is tired its like she tries to hit high notes by shouting girl you are an Alto be proud if its rare and sultry I would have loved her to do it in her early days though but now I hope she warms up an do some training before and sing within her range play the piano with it too!

    • MUSICHEAD January 18, 2013

      Don’t worry. She’ll probably get tackled before she makes it to “and the rockets red glare”.

    • Touché January 18, 2013

      I know, her voice seems a bit more raspy than it did during her early years. She needs to rest it more.

    • Sonya January 18, 2013

      Did you hear her sing “If I Ain’t Got You” on David Letterman Live? She sang it as good if not better than when she released it. She still has it. Anyone can mess up a little andt no one is perfect all the time but at least she doesn’t autotune. Much respect for Ms Keys. She always gives us everything she’s got. More power to her.

  29. MUSICHEAD January 18, 2013

    She gon be up there hollin like her throat is on fire.

    Po lil Alicia “off key” Keys. She prolly think she sound just like Whitney. That’s the advantage of being tone deaf.

    • Touché January 18, 2013

      lol

  30. F****** Hairy (Lana & Gaga schoolin’ h***) January 18, 2013

    At least its not Rihgoat.

    • I LOVE RIHANNA!!! January 18, 2013

      Or MAN UGLY FACE GAGA!!!

  31. Suicide Blonde January 18, 2013

    Didn’t they wanted to retransmit Whitney’s performance singing the national anthem as a tribute to her, what happened?

    • JOHNVIDAL January 18, 2013

      Omg that´s right! I totally forgot about that

      • Suicide Blonde January 18, 2013

        They should do it, i love Alicia but Whitney’s tribute is more important, America needs to watch that wonderful performance again, Alicia could have sing the national anthem in another occasion.

      • JOHNVIDAL January 18, 2013

        It would be awesome and hair raising

      • I LOVE RIHANNA!!! January 18, 2013

        They should hologram WHITNEY LIKE THEY DID PAC!! THAT WOULD SLAY!!!

  32. skintightjeans January 18, 2013

    I mean, I guess she’s ok…..I kinda don’t support homewreckers though so……

  33. ladylady January 18, 2013

    This is going to be THE HOTTEST super bowl ever. So glad the golden girls get to represent!

  34. Touché January 18, 2013

    I really like Alicia and all but I’m afraid she’ll struggle to sing the national anthem.

    • Sonya January 18, 2013

      Even if she does, it will still be great. Alicia gives it her all and that’s good enough for me.

  35. BEYONCE IS OUR LORD & SAVIOR PRAISE BEY January 18, 2013

    EEEEEEEWWWWWWWW WHYYYYYY!!!!!!!

    WTF

    I DON’T WANT HER TO PERFORM SHE SUCKS ASS I RATHER SEE R****

  37. I LOVE RIHANNA!!! January 18, 2013

    DEAR GOD…PLEASE BRING BACK THE QUEEN WHITNEY ELIZABETH HOUSTON AKA “THE VOICE” WE NEED HER PLEASE!!!

  38. Sonya January 18, 2013

    Too much hate on this site. Alicia will sing it her way and it will be great. I hope it’s one of her best performances.

  39. KAT DELUNA *POP PRINCESS* January 19, 2013

    I WANT KAT DELUNA TO PERFORM AGAIN

  40. RoyalKev January 19, 2013

    Congrats Alicia! I look forward to seeing her. I hope her voice is in tip-top condition by then. I like the fact that she’s taking part in this the same night Bey does her halftime performance. Both ladies ruled the last decade!
