OTRC: Alicia Keys to reportedly sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl - Poll

The Super Bowl is reportedly getting another Grammy-winner to sing at the game on February 3 in New Orleans.

Alicia Keys is set to perform the national anthem before the big game, a source told The Associated Press on January 18. Keys previously performed a medley of her songs at Super Bowl XLII in 2008.

The NFL announced in October that Beyonce will be the star performer at the halftime show. There is also a rumor that she will be joined on stage by her fellow Destiny's Child band members. Beyonce sang the national anthem at the 2004 NFL title game in her hometown of Houston.

Keys, who will turn 32 next week, recently released her fifth studio album "Girl on Fire," and debuted a video for her new single "Brand New Me" in mid-December.

Others who have performed the national anthem at past Super Bowls include "American Idol" winner Kelly Clarkson last year, Whitney Houston, Billy Joel, Diana Ross, Neil Diamond and Mariah Carey.

Christina Aguilera's performance of the national anthem at the 2011 Super Bowl was notable because she flubbed a line while belting out the tune. The Grammy Award-winning pop artist was supposed to sing the line "O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming," but instead repeated an earlier line. She sang "What so proudly we watched at the twilight's last gleaming," which is the same line from earlier in the song but with the word "watched" instead of the word "hailed."
