Justin Timberlake releases single ahead of Super Bowl

In an NFL season largely defined by protests during the national anthem, the league announced Monday that rock star P!NK would help kick off the Super Bowl by singing the National Anthem.

"Lady Gaga killed it yesterday".

A couple days ago, Pink may have foreshadowed this announcement in a tweet about her excitement for 2018: "I'm really looking forward to 2018".

The "What About Us" singer joins a long list of singers called upon to sing the national anthem including Luke Bryant, who sang previous year in Houston, and other recent performers like Lady Gaga, Idina Menzel, Kelly Clarkson and Alicia Keys. The event will be televised live on NBC.

The national anthem is notoriously hard for even the best trained vocalist to sing.

P!nk released her seventh studio album in October and has since been making headlines.

It'll be her second of three Twin Cities performances in the new year. According to the media brand, the new album exceeded expectations and sold 408,000 equivalent album units, 384,000 of which were from traditional album sales.

It now looks like one of the super-secret projects she couldn't spill the beans on was in fact Super Bowl LII - we couldn't be more pumped about it. You know that Lady Gaga performed in white, glittery red and blue outfit.

On April 2, he will perform at Little Caesar's Arena. She is slated to perform at the Grammys on January 28 and is touring for her latest album "Beautiful Trauma", her first full-length release in five years.

Her performance of "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the Super Bowl definitely marks a milestone for the "So What" rocker.

Timberlake will also be going on tour starting March 13.
