Kelly Clarkson to Perform National Anthem at Super Bowl; Shelton & Lambert "America the Beautiful" 

Getty ImagesIt'll be Kelly Clarkson singing the national anthem at the upcoming Super Bowl.  NBC confirmed it today, also announcing that Blake Shelton and wife Miranda Lambert will perform "America the Beautiful" prior to the NFL championship game. Their version of "America the Beautiful" is now available for download at iTunes.

As already announced, Madonna is the halftime performer.

It'll be Clarkson's first time performing at the Super Bowl.  It's also interesting to note that Shelton and Lambert join only a handful of artists who have ever performed "America the Beautiful" at the big game.  The others are Vicki Carr (Super Bowl 11), Mary J. Blige and Marc Anthony (Super Bowl 36), Alicia Keys (Super Bowl 39), Faith Hill (Super Bowl 43), Queen Latifah (Super Bowl 44), Lea Michele (Super Bowl 46) and, of course, Ray Charles (Super Bowl 35).

Super Bowl XLVI takes place Sunday, February 5 in Indianapolis, IN, and will be broadcast live on NBC.
