Whilst The Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs battle it out for the Vince Lombardi trophy, they won’t be the only ones drawing the spotlight near on February 12.
A number of iconic music artists, grammy-winners, viral TikTokkers and actors/actresses will be making an appearance throughout the Super Bowl this year.
None other than the sensation herself, Miss Rihanna, will be taking to the Super Bowl halftime stage, in her first live performance in over five years, what a way to make a comeback right?
A new feature to this year’s extravaganza, will be the TikTok Tailgate party, which will be headlined by Jason Derulo and The Black Keys.
The TikTok Tailgate party will mean that viewers will be able to watch hours of live broadcast from the Super Bowl from the NFL’s official TikTok account.
But who will be taking the ever-coveted national anthem slot? Let’s take a look…
Who will be singing the national anthem at the Super Bowl?

The Super Bowl is not only a notoriously renowned sporting event, the culture and entertainment aspect is almost equally as respected, and obviously hyped, it is in America after all.
The national anthem performance is a poignant moment during the event, and this year it will be sung by Grammy Award-Winning music artist Chris Stapleton, and so far, there have been some mixed responses.
The ‘Tennessee Whisky’ singer is widely known in the music world, but American football fans have some rather large question marks surrounding who exactly Stapleton is, one suggesting that the performance ‘seems missable’.
Not only will the national anthem be sung, it will also be performed in American Sign Language, a thoughtful touch that will be delivered by ‘CODA’ star Troy Kotsur.
Throughout the tear-jerking performance, The United States Navy will flyover the stadium with female aviators as part of the formation, as a way to celebrate 50 years of women being allowed to fly for the Navy.
Last year's Super Bowl national anthem performance was sung by Mickey Guyton, an American country music artist, who was brought up in Texas.
Previous performers at the Super Bowl include The Weekend, Shakira, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Prince and Madonna.
It’s fair to say that the event organisers do not do anything by halves, and we’re excited to see what this year's spectacle has in store for us!
