Super Bowl 2020: Demi Lovato Will Perform the National Anthem

Somebody cue the neon lights, because Demi Lovato is heading to the Super Bowl.

The 27-year-old singer will sing “The Star Spangled Banner” (aka the national anthem) at Super Bowl LIV, which will take place on Sunday, February 2, at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.

Lovato announced the exciting news on her personal Instagram account and shared a tropical promo photo. Fitting, indeed.

She captioned the post, “Singing the National Anthem at #SBLIV [football emojis] See you in Miami [palm tree emoji] @NFL.”

Lovato’s national anthem performance shouldn’t be confused with Pepsi’s Super Bowl halftime show, which will be led by Jennifer Lopez and Shakira. Although there’s no plan for Lovato to join the pair’s mid-game performance, we can’t deny that it’d be awfully convenient. *Cue “Heart Attack”*

This won’t be the first time Lovato has done a live rendition of the national anthem. Her most recent “Star Spangled Banner” performance took place in 2017 at the Floyd Mayweather Jr. versus Conor McGregor fight in Las Vegas. In addition to the Super Bowl, Lovato will also perform at the 2020 Grammy Awards, which will take place one week prior on January 26.

The “Sorry Not Sorry” singer is joining a long list of famous Super Bowl “Star Spangled Banner” performers, including Gladys Knight, Whitney Houston, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Diana Ross, Barry Manilow, Billy Joel and Cher.

If you need us, we’ll be crossing our fingers that Lovato’s nerves don’t get in the way of her remembering the words. (*Cough, Christina Aguilera, cough*)
