Um, Yay? Christina Aguilera Reportedly To Sing National Anthem At Super Bowl XLV

It hasn’t been confirmed just yet, but reports indicate that Christina Aguilera will be performing the National Anthem at Super XLV in Arlington on February 6th. And how excited we all are about this thrilling development. Between her and the Black Eyed Peas performing at halftime, Super Bowl Sunday is shaping up to be a humdinger of a craptastic musical event. Who has the NFL lined up for the pregame performance? Justin Bieber? If it’s not Boz Scaggs, I’m going to be pissed.

The NFL, being the NFL, has thus far refused to comment (via The Dallas Morning News):

A spokesperson from NFL had “no comment” on Aguilera’s participation, and added ‘When we have something to announce, we will announce it.”

Yes, whatever half-assed talent the NFL is trotting out to perform the National Anthem should be shrouded in secrecy. I’m not kidding. There are probably millions riding on prop bets in Vegas as to who will sing the anthem as we speak.

The funny thing is I’m having a bit of deja vu right now, like I wrote the exact post at some point in the past…

Wow. I have written something about Aguilera singing the National Anthem one before – and I almost even used the exact same photo. Strange. Maybe I’m just a fan of Christina Aguilera Hand Bra pics and will seek out any reason to upload them. I guess there are worse hobbies.
