*Alicia Keys will join her good friend Beyonce on the Super Bowl performance slate.

The “girl on fire” has been chosen to sing the National Anthem prior to the big game, which will feature Beyonce as the half time entertainment.

The Super Bowl will take place in New Orleans on Feb. 3.

Keys and Bey will follow in the footsteps of Kelly Clarkson and Madonna, who handled the National Anthem and half time show respectively last year.
