Soprano Renée Fleming, the star-spangled flame-spitter

Super Bowl XLVIII pits Peyton Manning’s thumb-shaped head against Richard Sherman’s postgame interview excellence. At halftime, the millions (and millions) watching at home will be treated to a performance by Bruno Mars, with the corpses of the Red Hot Chili Peppers as special guests/props.

Before any of that happens, though, the star-spangled flame-spitter, Renée Fleming, will sing the National Anthem.

The stakes are high. Fleming is the first opera singer to ever sing at the Super Bowl, and The Star-Spangled Banner ain’t a breeze to sing.

But have faith — consummate professionals, like Fleming, always come through:

Should be a fun night.
