(ABC News) - Pop star Pink will be belting out the national anthem at the Super Bowl next month, the NFL announced Monday in a statement.
For Pink, whose official name is P!nk, singing the national anthem the same year Justin Timberlake will perform the halftime show is fitting. His performance was announced last October.
Both pop stars broke into the big time in 2000 -- Pink with "There You Go" and Timberlake with 'N SYNC and "Bye Bye Bye" -- and both have continued to top pop charts over the past 18 years. Both will also launch world tours in March.
Last year's national anthem was sung by country star Luke Bryan.
The Super Bowl will be held February 4 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
