"I have been performing the anthem since I was seven years old, and I must say the Super Bowl is a dream come true," the five-time Grammy-winning singer/songwriter said in a statement. "I am really excited to be part of such an iconic event."

This will be Christina's second appearance at a Super Bowl. She performed during halftime with Enrique Iglesias in 2000's Super Bowl XXIV.

As previously announced, Black Eyed Peas will star in this year's Bridgestone Super Bowl XLV Halftime Show.

The Pittsburgh Steelers will take on the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XLX, on Sunday, February 6. More than 153 million people watched last year's game.

Kickoff is at 6PM ET/3PM PT on Sunday, February 6th on FOX.
