  • Pink Just Snagged an Epic New Gig

The vocalist, who was born Alecia Beth Moore, will sing the national anthem ahead of the February 4 title game at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, the NFL announced Monday.

Pink will pair up with Justin Timberlake, who was announced in October as the halftime performer for Super Bowl LII, to provide the entertainment in Minneapolis.

The NFL made the announcement Monday morning.

Pink is being given the honor of opening the 2018 Super Bowl next month by performing the national anthem.

The three-time Grammy-winning artist will sing before kickoff on February 4 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

Pink hasn't officially commented on her involvement with the game, though she did tweet on January 6 that she was looking forward to a few major events in the first couple of months of 2018. Last year, Lady Gaga played the halftime gig after singing the anthem the year before. Her most recent hits include the Grammy-nominated "What About Us", "Just Like Fire" and "Setting the World on Fire", a duet with country star Kenny Chesney.

Nvidia partners with Uber, Volkswagen in self-driving technology
But the company operated largely in secret until last week when it announced partnerships with Volkswagen Group and Hyundai. They're betting big on autonomous vehicles and their Drive IX technology is one of the most advanced platforms around.

Jimmy then says: 'You do half time?' Lady Gaga performed the anthem in 2016, which came before being selected for the halftime show in 2017.

The Vikings are one of four remaining teams in the race to secure the NFC's place in the Super Bowl and they take on the New Orleans Saints in their divisional round clash on Sunday, also live on Sky Sports.

Looks like Pink was hinting at the Super Bowl news over the weekend, but couldn't spill yet.
