Previous stars to receive the honour of singing the anthem include Luke Bryan, who sang a year ago, Lady Gaga, Idina Menzel, Alicia Keys, Billy Joel, Diana Ross, Neil Diamond, Beyoncé, Cher, Whitney Houston, and Mariah Carey.
The national anthem is routinely one of the most watched and scrutinized moments of the Super Bowl, with legions of amateur hand-timers firing up their phones to try and determine if the national anthem goes over or under the projected Vegas total.
The national anthem has previously been sung by the likes of Lady Gaga, Idina Menzel, Alicia Keys, Billy Joel, Diana Ross, Neil Diamond, Whitney Houston, Luther Vandross, Cher, Faith Hill, Mariah Carey, Beyoncé and Christina Aguilera.
Justin Timberlake is set to headline the halftime show. Pink returns to town March 12 to play St. Paul's Xcel Energy Center as part of her world tour in support of her seventh album "Beautiful Trauma".
Timberlake, 36, has assured there won't be a similar occurrence this year.
The Super Bowl is more than just a football game.
Justin pulled a face and looked at the camera before shouting, "I'm doing the Halftime Show", while he and Jimmy jumped around the room.
