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

alicia keys girl superbowl Report: Alicia Keys To Perform National Anthem At Super Bowl 2013

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.

    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****!

    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 :)

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

    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.
