Prior Super Bowl halftime show headliners have included: Coldplay, Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Madonna and more. Now, I wonder which artist will land the coveted National Anthem gig? Speculation welcome. How about American Idol 9 singer, Tori Kelly? She gets my vote.
The 51st Super Bowl championship event is set to take place at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, on February 5, 2017.
