Most of the pre-Super Bowl shenanigans happen on the actual weekend, but the pics did trickle in yesterday from a few events, beginning with the performers press conference. Reba is doing the anthem, Post Malone is doing “America the Beautiful” (my personal favorite of the America songs), and Andra Day is doing “Lift Every Voice And Sing.” And then of course Usher is taking the mic at halftime. We still don’t know what special guests he’ll have, but I’m crossing my fingers for at LEAST Ludacris when he busts out “Yeah.” And I will pledge my troth for life if he brings out Janet on the 20th anniversary of Nipplegate and treats her the way she deserves to be treated.
