Super Bowl LV is almost here and this year Grammy-nominated artistes Eric Church and Jazmine Sullivan will be singing the national anthem at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. While this will be Eric Church’s first-time singing the national anthem for a major sport event, Sullivan is no stranger to sports stages. 

Along with Church and Sullivan initiating the Super Bowl this year, a star-studded performance will be seen on the Super Bowl stage including Weeknd, Miley Cyrus, Alicia Keys, H.E.R, Luke Bryan and, if some reports are to be believed, Christina Aguilera and Amanda Gorman will also be seen on the stage.

How long will the national anthem last?

According to Sports Line, most people are betting that the national anthem will last this year for approximately 1 minute and 59 seconds. Previously, Sullivan was seen performing the national anthem at a Philadelphia 76ers game in 2014 where she ended the anthem within a length of 1:44-1:49. Later, for NHL Stadium Series in 2016, Sullivan finished in 1 minute 38 seconds. As this will be a duet, sportsbooks users are leaning for a longer length.
