We thought Super Bowl Sunday was all about football and you know, the Super Bowl? The coveted date sports fans wait all year for is slowly but surely turning into a night of glee, not the emotion, the TV show “Glee!” Yesterday we posted some photos from the post-game episode of the series, which will feature lots of football, and an awesome mash-up of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” But it doesn’t stop there, according to Reuters, Lea Michele has been tapped to sing before the big game.
We know what you’re thinking: what will she perform? Several days ago we learned that Christina Aguilera had been chosen to sing the National Anthem for the Super Bowl, so Michele’s definitely out for that. Instead, she’ll belt out “America the Beautiful.” The Super Bowl is known to draw an average of over 100 million viewers so we’re hoping that both ladies can handle the pressure.
A couple years ago Aguilera sang the National Anthem at a NBA finals game and it was not her best work. Maybe it was nerves? The Super Bowl airs on Fox, Sunday February 6.
What do you think of Michele performing prior to the big game? What do you think of all the Glee influence on Super Bowl Sunday?
