Super Bowl XLIV will kick off with Carrie Underwood singing the national anthem and Queen Latifah performing America the Beautiful, while The Who is set to rock the half time with a medley of their hits.
"We're kinda doing a mashup of stuff," guitarist Pete Townshend told Billboard. "A bit of Baba O'Riley, a bit of Pinball Wizard, a bit of the close of Tommy, a bit of Who Are You, and a bit of Won't Get Fooled Again. It works -- it's quite a saga."
Townshend promised the performance will be festive, and CSI fans are sure to enjoy hearing all the theme songs from the franchise!
Meanwhile, cameras are sure to give some attention to the celebs in the stands. Kim Kardashian will be on hand to root on her main squeeze Reggie Bush, but contrary to reports from TMZ, she will not be riding around Miami in an armored Vault XXL2 Limousine.
