Carrie Underwood to Sing National Anthem at the Superbowl

This football season is just full of Idol National anthem goodness!

First, there was Jordin Sparks and Kris Allen singing the National Anthem ahead of the AFC and NFC (respectively) football championships last weekend.

Now, per E Online’s Marc Malkin, Carrie Underwood is set to sing the anthem before the Superbowl in Miami, FL, Sunday February 7 when the Indianapolis Colts battle the New Orleans Saints for the championship.

Queen Latifah is set to sing “America the Beautiful” and British rock band, The Who, will play at halftime.

Carrie’s performance will be the third Idol anthem in as many years. Jennifer Hudson performed the anthem last year, only a few months after her mother, brother and nephew were murdered. And in 2008, the reigning American Idol, Jordin Sparks, did the honors.
