For the first time, an opera singer will perform the national anthem at the Super Bowl.

American soprano Renee Fleming will command the microphone at Super Bowl XLVIII on Feb. 2. She’s no slouch either, with four Grammy Awards and a National Medal of Arts tucked nicely under her belt.

I’m not much of a Super Bowl watcher. The last performers I remember singing the national anthem are Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson. Google tells me that was way back in 2004.

Looks like halftime performers are alleged to be Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. How do you feel about that? Who have been your favorite performers over the years?
