The National Football League and FOX just made it official: The star of Burlesque will perform the National Anthem as part of Super Bowl XLV pregame festivities at Cowboys Stadium on Super Bowl Sunday. Says Christina Aguilera in the press release that just popped up in the in-box: "I have been performing the Anthem since I was seven years old, and I must say the Super Bowl is a dream come true." Matter o' fact, says here: "Throughout her youth in Pittsburgh, Aguilera sang "The Star-Spangled Banner" before Pittsburgh Penguins hockey, Pittsburgh Steelers football and Pittsburgh Pirates baseball games, including during the 1992 Stanley Cup Finals."

Best part of the announcement: the link to the league's Official History of Super Bowl Entertainment, which reminds: In 1980, Cheryl Ladd sang "The Star-Spangled Banner," so, see, it coulda been worse. But in '74, it was none other than Dallas's own Charley Pride, who last had that honor during Game 5 of the World Series in Arlington on November 1. Let's watch that again.

Hey Robert - what have you got against Cheryl Ladd????!!! Her 1974 single 'The Family' is an undiscovered treasure.

I can understand their reasoning; they want someone more current to perform at the Super Bowl.

Here's my hang-up:The performers (at least one of them) is usually from the city that the Super Bowl is played in.When the Super Bowl was in Houston, Beyonce sang the anthem.When it was in Arizona, Jordin Sparks sang the anthem.

Why not get someone from DFW, like Kelly Clarkson?

It could be much worse. I remember watching a game in the recent past - have no idea what it was - and some new-country Lady Antebellum type of outfit came out and proceeded to belt out a glorious rendition in amazing three-part unison. It was confusing.

Hey, C-Ag can sang, man! Although I'd much rather prefer a Kanye West auto-tune version with Jay Z bustin' a freestyle just before the bridge.

This announcement is not going to effect my Sanford and Son marathon watching experience is it?

The girl's got a set of pipes on her for sure. Just hope she doesn't oversing the hell out of it, like she tends to do every other song.

The Al Qaeda MK-Ultra mind trigger will be the Black Eyed Peas "Time of My Life" because everyone knows terrorists are huge Swayze fans.

I remembered reading this a few months ago. "NFL fans won't have to worry about another band past its prime — The Who, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band — playing the halftime show at the Super Bowl in February. The Black Eyed Peas will be on stage at halftime for the 2011 Super Bowl."

Knew I shulda volunteered for that Superbowl committee.
