I'm actually surprised in this choice. It is who I would have chosen but it seems the way culture is moving, they would have chosen the next Miley Beiber Will.Who.Am.I.

A very nice contrast to the crap they present as halftime entertainment!
My aspiring opera singer niece has met Ms. Fleming and she seemed to be a lovely person.
“My god! How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy? I confess I had no idea of it myself.” Jefferson writing to Madison on America in 1785 while in Paris.

Excellent.  No need to shudder about how she will butcher the lyrics or the tune, and certainly no worries about "wardrobe malfunctions".

Halftime is another matter....

I bet they could have gotten the folks from the J.G. Wentworth ads cheaper. :patriot:
