WATCH: Demi Lovato Sings U.S. National Anthem At Super Bowl


Demi Lovato kicked off Sunday’s Super Bowl LIV by belting out “The Star-Spangled Banner” inside Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.

The pop star, dressed in an all-white jumpsuit, gave a quick smile as she was introduced. Beyoncé and Jay-Z remained seated during the national anthem, likely in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick.

Earlier, Lovato took to social media to share a tweet from Feb. 7, 2010 in which she predicted: ""One day, I'm gonna sing the national anthem at a super bowl. Onnnee dayyy...." On Sunday, she tweeted a new prediction. "One day, I’m gonna perform the halftime show at the super bowl. Onnnee dayyy...."

At 27, Lovato was the youngest artist to sing the U.S. national anthem before the big game since Carrie Underwood did it in 2010. The performance came exactly one week after she earned praise for singing the emotional ballad "Anyone" at the Grammy Awards.

Before Lovato’s performance, Yolanda Adams sang “American the Beautiful” backed by the Children’s Voice Chorus of Miami.

Previous anthem singers at the Super Bowl include P!nk, Lady Gaga, Kelly Clarkson and Christina Aguilera. Last year, Gladys Knight performed the anthem.
