The duo’s performance comes after a banner 2014 Super Bowl; more than 112.2 million viewers in the U.S. watched last year’s game between the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos, the most-watched TV program in history.
The pregame show, including the National Anthem and “America The Beautiful” will be broadcast worldwide.
The big game airs February 1st. The two teams competing will be determined Sunday when the Indianapolis Colts face the New England Patriots and the Green Bay Packers face defending Super Bowl champions Seattle Seahawks.
