P!nk named to perform United States anthem at Super Bowl 52

The Pennsylvania native released her seventh studio album, Beautiful Trauma, last summer and is scheduled to kick off a world tour a month after her date at the Super Bowl, which takes place on Sunday, February 4 and will be shown live on Sky Sports.

Pink will perform the national anthem at Super Bowl LII, reports NFL.com's Dan Hanzus. Lady Gaga, Alicia Keys, Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood are among the other entertainers to recently perform the national anthem at the Super Bowl.

His first halftime performance was 14 years ago at the 2004 Super Bowl, when he pulled a controversial move on stage, ripping a piece of Janet Jackson's costume off and exposing her breast to an audience of nearly 100 million viewers worldwide.

Pink, 38, who is yet to publicly comment on the news, will be accompanied by deaf actress Alexandria Wailes, who will perform "The Star-Spangled Banner" and "America the Beautiful" in American sign language. Last year, Lady Gaga played the halftime gig after singing the anthem the year before.

Previously, Justin Timberlake was announced as the halftime performer for the 2018 Super Bowl.

Justin replied: 'I do half time'.

The pair repeated the same questions and answers a few times before an excited Jimmy asked: "You're doing the Halftime Show at the Super Bowl?" "I'm really looking forward to 2018".
