Idina Menzel, John Legend Set to Sing Before Super Bowl XLIX

The cold never bothered her anyway — although with Super Bowl XLIX set for University of Phoenix Stadium in Arizona, that probably won’t be an issue when Idina Menzel performs the National Anthem as part of the pre-show festivities.

Indeed, the Frozen actress and Broadway diva has been tapped to perform “The Star Spangled Banner” right before kickoff at this year’s NFL extravaganza — airing Sunday, Feb. 1 on NBC — following in the footsteps of 2014 performer, opera star Renée Fleming.

R&B phenom John Legend, meanwhile, will do the honors on “America the Beautiful.”

More than 112.2 million viewers in the U.S. watched last year’s Super Bowl, the most-watched television program in history, NBC noted.

The NFL previously announced that Katy Perry will headline the Pepsi Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show.
