While most attention will be on the game, the national anthem and halftime performers are generating quite a stir as well. Singing the national anthem at the Super Bowl is a huge honor for any performer, but most past performers have been music superstars.This year, the NFL decided to go with something a bit different and chose the soprano Renee Fleming for singing the national anthem.
As for the Halftime Show, this year, they've decided to bring in Bruno Mars to perform at the Super Bowl XLVIII. Mars earned a Grammy at the 53rd Grammy Awards for his song "Just the Way You Are," and just this year won Best Pop Vocal Album for "Unorthodox Jukebox." He will not be alone, he made a special announcement that the Red Hot Chili Peppers will be joining him for the show. Certainly this matchups has created some intrigue around the event.
The Super Bowl halftime show is annually the most-watched musical performance. More than 162 million viewers in the U.S. watched last year's show. This season's Super Bowl is set to be played in the MetLife Stadium, Easte Rutherford, New Jerseyon Feb. 2nd, 2014. The halftime show will be broadcast worldwide in more than 230 countries and territories. The next venue to host the Super Bowl 2015 University of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, Arizona.
