But fans unsatisfied with Timberlake’s halftime show appointment can at least find some solace in knowing there are two more musical decisions to be made: who will sing the national anthem and “America the Beautiful.”
Since 2009, “America the Beautiful” has preceded the national anthem at every Super Bowl halftime show, often sung by an R&B/pop artist (like John Legend) or country star (like Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert). This year, the NFL could continue in a similar vein, enlisting a country hit-maker like Chris Young, or they could freshen things up by inviting a younger pop star like Charlie Puth or Camila Cabello.
Who do you think should perform “America the Beautiful” at the 2018 Super Bowl? Vote below.
