Jordin Sparks To Sing National Anthem, Alicia Keys Joins Super Bowl Performance Roster

American Idol winner Jordin Sparks is about to accomplish something her retired football player father never did: Perform on the Super Bowl field. Sparks, whose dad Phillippi spent nine seasons wearing the New York Giants blue but never made it to the big game, will sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” at Sunday’s Super Bowl in Jordin’s home turf of Glendale, Arizona. Alicia Keys has also been drafted to perform during the Super Bowl pre-game show, even though Keys admits “Even I, who might think the Mighty Ducks and Penguins are playing, love the Super Bowl.” Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers headline the halftime show, while this year’s batch of high-profile commercials will feature the likes of Madonna, Justin Timberlake and Missy Elliott.
