We're already hugely excited for the Super Bowl XLIX this February, but the announcement of who's going to be crooning out the National Anthem is the icing on the cake! 'Frozen' star Idina Menzel will be performing at the play-off, alongside John Legend.

Following the stunning performance of 'The Star Spangled Banner' at Super Bowl XLVIII last year by Renée Fleming, Idina Menzel has got a lot to live up to. Her incredible pipes on the world's favorite tune 'Let It Go' may have rocked the globe, but America's biggest football event has seen some unimaginable talent open the event in song in previous years, including Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys, Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson.

Even if she doesn't pull it off (we're joking, we can't wait to hear it!), there's still plenty more to get giddy about as John Legend will also take up the stage for a rendition of America's second favorite patriotic tune 'America The Beautiful'. Legend recently won the country's hearts with his single 'Glory' featuring Common, a track written and recorded for Martin Luther King biopic 'Selma' and which easily scooped the gong for Best Original Song at the 2015 Golden Globes.

Furthermore, the halftime show will feature performances from Katy Perry, who's still on her Prismatic World Tour, and funk veteran Lenny Kravitz, who released his tenth studio album last year entitled 'Strut'.

Sports-wise, for those who don't already know, this year's game will take place at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona and will see in play either the Indianapolis Colts or New England Patriots against either the Green Bay Packers or Seattle Seahawks.

Next year will mark a landmark year for the Super Bowl, it being the 50th edition and thus has been unusually but appropriately dubbed 'Super Bowl 50'.
