The biggest television event of the year will take place very soon. That's right, the Super Bowl is upon us once more. Super Bowl LVII will commence on Sunday, February 12 between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles. Both teams earned the top seed in their respective conferences and rolled through the playoffs. It should be a great game.
Before we get to the game, though, everybody joins in a great American pastime: listening to the National Anthem (and betting on how long it'll take, if that's your jam). Singing the National Anthem before the Super Bowl is a great honor and will ensure that whoever sings it will go down in history.
Below you'll find who is singing the National Anthem this year, as well as a history of the event.
