Reba McEntire to sing national anthem for Super Bowl LVIII

On Thursday, the NFL announced that Reba McEntire will sing the National Anthem at Super Bowl LVIII on Feb. 11. She'll be accompanied by "CODA" actor Daniel Durant, who will perform the national anthem in American Sign Language.

Also taking the stage before the game are "Circles" singer Post Malone, who will sing "America the Beautiful," and "Rise Up" singer Andra Day, who will sing "Lift Every Voice and Sing."

Actress, model and dancer Anjel Piñero will perform "America the Beautiful" in ASL and actor and choreographer Shaheem Sanchez will sign "Lift Every Voice and Sing."

In September, it was announced that Usher will be taking the Super Bowl LVIII halftime stage.

"It's been a dream of mine and a bucket list, you know, thing to be able to get it," Usher told "GMA" in an interview this week. "You know, they say -- what is it? Oscar, Tony, Grammy, Emmy, right?

"You should put 'Super Bowl' there too, right?" he added with a laugh.

Super Bowl LVIII will take place Feb. 11 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.

They should do a mashup of all three songs set to a good hip hop beat.

Of the vocal performers, Andra Day is the only highlight.

R3 the half ass Amy Winehouse imitator who sings that annoying Rise Up song?

Oh God Reba! Prepare to hear sounds that don't exist in the English language! Good luck to the sign language guy.

R6 is she singing in Swedish?

Do you suppose any deaf people asked for simultaneous ASL translation of the lyrics to the national anthems?

Or the Golden Globe winning, Oscar-nominated star of “The US v Billie Holiday”. Some of us know different things, R4 and R5. It’s what makes the Internets such a wholesome exchange of ideas!

Well, this will be the last performance of the Black National Anthem at the Super Bowl when the MAGAts win the White House.

Can't we start a Change.org petition to get her to sing Fancy instead?

From the comments:

[quote]I predict Reba will sing the anthem in the straight forward manner it deserves; versus the 5-10 min vocal acrobatics that have become the norm these days. The performance should be about the lyrics not the singer. Don't disappoint, Reba. Gitty up!

by Anonymousreply 33January 21, 2024 3:14 PM

Has Taylor Swift tried to take over the anthem spot yet?

She’s a professional and knows what to do. I agree, I hope it’s understated with emphasis on the lyrics. I was listening to KD Lang tonight. Where is she?

Do you have to remain standing for all these anthems?

The national anthem is always pre-recorded. She'll be fine.

R-38 our resident Reba hater troll rears her head. She says the same thing like clockwork every time Reba is mentioned.
