No Doubt and the Dixie Chicks are the latest superstars to sign on for performances at Super Bowl XXXVII on January 26th in San Diego. No Doubt, who received three Grammy nominations, will perform during the halftime show, while the Chicks, who received four nominations, will perform the National Anthem prior to the game.
"Anyone who tells you there's no pressure to sing the National Anthem live to one of the biggest television audiences on the planet is not telling the truth," said the Chicks' Emily Robison. "Sure, I'm a little nervous, but we're also very excited and honored." No Doubt and the Dixie Chicks join previously announced performer, Shania Twain, whose latest album Up! remains one of the best-selling records in the country. The event will be executive produced by Interscope Records chairman Jimmy Iovine. Last year, U2 performed during the Super Bowl's halftime show, and Mariah Carey sang the national anthem.
