Vote: Who Should Sing the National Anthem at Super Bowl 2020?

Published: Sunday 12th Jan 2020 by Rashad

As football and music lovers gear up for the Latin takeover of the Super Bowl’s Halftime Show courtesy of its headliners, Jennifer Lopez and Shakira, excitement builds on who will be delegated the coveted duty of kicking off the game with a rousing rendition of ‘The Star Spangled Banner.’

Historically calling on some of the industry’s most vocally capable to pull off the feat (i.e. Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin, Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Kelly Clarkson, etc.), expectations for the chosen vocalist are almost as high as they are for the Halftime Show performers.

Pop singer Kesha recently made headlines for indicating one of her ‘biggest dreams’ is to sing the U.S. national anthem before a Super Bowl (click here to read more), a revelation that incited debate on who should be appointed the honor.

With names like Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson, John Legend, and Lizzo leading the conversation ahead of the NFL’s official announcement, we turn to you – That Grape Juice faithful – to ask:  who should sing the national anthem at Super Bowl LIV on February 2?!

    Def Toni or Hudson

    • Dinahiscomoing January 12, 2020

      Camila, but she’s Latina, I’d rather chose an American legend like Mary j or Lizzo

  2. Fast_Persuader January 12, 2020

    NONE of them, tbh. But ?‍

  3. Keon January 12, 2020

    Destiny’s Child

    • MinajVavaVoom January 12, 2020

      No

    • Dinahiscomoing January 12, 2020

      Amen

    • Bravo!! January 12, 2020

      That would be hot a female group, but I’ll go with En Vogue first and then destiny child

      • Keon January 12, 2020

        You know that they are not getting En vogue lol
        If Destinys child is coming back for a return then I think they should.

  4. Beyonce knows January 12, 2020

    I say make Rihanna sing it.

    • MinajVavaVoom January 12, 2020

      Lol u high right?

      • Susan January 12, 2020

        Your mom is.

    • High Price January 13, 2020

      “Make her” ?? ????

  5. January 12, 2020

  6. Google Assistant January 12, 2020

    Jennifer Hudson already sung the national anthem at the Super Bowl in 2013

    Let Google be your friend!!

    • Dinahiscomoing January 12, 2020

      ?? tea

  7. MinajVavaVoom January 12, 2020

    Celine Dion or Toni Braxton

    • Interac January 12, 2020

      Celine is Canadian

  8. Led January 12, 2020

    I’m laughing at the fact that y’all put Miley Cyrus ,Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber on this f****** list.
    The only two people up there that I can see singing it is Celine Dion and Gloria Estefan.

    • Jake January 12, 2020

      Miley can sing sing, don’t play yourself now.

  9. Susan January 12, 2020

    Camila Cabello or Selena Gomez. We need latinas to rule the night and Selena and Camila are the new Whitney and Mariah ??‍♀️??‍♀️

    • K_man January 12, 2020

      Selena and camila should never be in the same sentence as mariah and whitney. Selena Gomez is somewhere having another breakdown and when she sings she’s whispering her loudest to a turn off microphone. Camila wouldn’t even acknowledge Mariah and Whitney because since they are both black women

      • Susan January 12, 2020

        Camila is the new Whitney and Mariah. Just look at her stats. And my oh my is rising to the top 10 on billboard next week and liar is climbing the charts too. Two incoming #1 hits. A full slay. CC will have more #1’s than Mariah when it’s all said and done. Mariah is Camilas son

    • Joey January 12, 2020

      B**** TF?!?!?!?! YOU GOT TO BE MOTHERFUCKING CRAZY IF YOU THINK THOSE 2 EVEN COME CLOSE TO MARIAH AND WHITNEY. SIT THE F*** DOWN YOU DELUSIONAL SOB!!!!!!

      • Susan January 12, 2020

        Mariah sings like she has a throat full of thrush these days. Camila sings like an angel and has the range Mariah wishes she had. Mariah is Camilas son.

    • Mariah/riri January 13, 2020

      As a Mariah lamb, fan for years. Camilla ain’t got s*** on Mariah with her basic vocals, uninspired songs, she literally has no artistry. Nobody will remember her as a legend, aside from the Latinos.
      USA will never ever call her a legend. Mariah was respected by her peers and legends in the industry. Stevie wonder, Michael Jackson, Toni Braxton. People she was competing with had all respect for her. Cause she is a singer songwriter producer. Unlike miss racist

  10. BeyQueen January 12, 2020

    K Michelle is the best choice to sing the National anthem ratchet version

  14. Michael C** January 12, 2020

    Fantasia hunni ?

  15. Dc January 12, 2020

    Mary j Blige

  16. Jake January 12, 2020

    Celine Dion, Harry Styles, Shawn, Justin and more and not even American! I say Toni Braxton or John Legend he is having a good run right now, and everyone likes him, plus a man doing it would be great, it would avoid previous female comparisons or whatever.

  17. Paulo January 12, 2020

    I voted Toni cause that’s my fav vocalist out of those but Gloria Estefan would make sense due to the Latino theme. but I wish they’d put in a male vocalist for a change so John Legend would also be great.

    • PinotNoir January 13, 2020

      Toni dies out at the climax. Can’t drag all that vocal weight up there. Neither should she attempt to. Her sister, Tamar, shines there.

  18. Paulo January 12, 2020

    oooh and I can’t @ the gang of crows rigging this poll. get a life and a job so maybe you can buy tickets to save face for her lol

    • C**-ila January 12, 2020

      Let’s think for one second…who would be here rigging a almost unknown blog poll on C*****’s behalf?
      Clarkbitch and all his troll acc –‘

      Hope TGJ resets the poll and erase his accounts!

  19. Kurtz January 12, 2020

    I didn’t know Lizzo sang I thought she rapped or whatever…

  20. Kurtz January 12, 2020

    Jennifer Hudson
    Kelly Clarkson
    Celine Dion
    Toni Braxton

    I’ll be happy with any of them

  21. Nicole may January 12, 2020

    Hands down mary j Blige Jennifer Hudson lizzo Mariah carey

  22. Gee January 12, 2020

    Since the Super Bowl will be taking place in Miami I think that Gloria Estefan should do the honors, as she is a resident of Miami by way of Cuba. Also to go along with Jlo and Shakira doing the halftime show, keep the Hispanic vibes going.

  23. eric January 12, 2020

    Easy. Toni or Celine.

  24. Timothy January 13, 2020

    JoJo. She would kill it!

  25. Rashad January 13, 2020

    Jennifer already did it and it wasn’t memorable or special like Whitney, Mariah or Gaga.

  26. FAF January 13, 2020

    Keep in mind black People are protesting in solidarity so it will be hard to have a black respected legend perform

    So probably a country singer or conservative

  27. PinotNoir January 13, 2020

    Celine? Nah. She lost the super-belty part of her voice. Understandable after a decade in Vegas. Keke Wyatt should nail it. Tamar, too, if she smooths out her chest-to-head note transitions. Whitney broke the mould, man!

  28. High Price January 13, 2020

    Monica, Brandy or Ariana Grande

  29. High Price January 13, 2020

    Male wise, I’d say:
    Tyrese
    Luke James
    Mario

  30. K January 13, 2020

    #Miley with those vocals #queen

  31. Beyonce knows January 13, 2020

    What about Kelly Rowland? Ke Ke Wyatt? Monica?

  32. Letitia Fowler January 13, 2020

    The Bomparts should sing the National anthem. Recent contestants on Americas most musical family, the Bomparts live in Plantation Florida. They are breath taking performers..

  33. Bebo p. January 13, 2020

    It should be Camila Cabello she would be perfect

    • Tea sis January 14, 2020

      Racist you mean?

  34. Tea sis January 14, 2020

    YALL BETTER HAVE ARIANA GRANDE??

  35. Tea sis January 14, 2020

    YALL BETTER HAVE ARIANA GRANDE?? and who cares about shawn mendes and s***?

  36. Mary Grover January 19, 2020

    I think that Rascal Flatts should be invited to sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl acapella as they sang I’ll be Home For Christmas. They have beautiful harmony and I think the stadium will be totally silent through the whole performance. They are extraordinary.

    Google I’ll be Home For Christmas by Rascal Flatts and see what I mean.
