'American Idol' champ Carrie Underwood to sing Super Bowl anthem

By Christopher Rocchio, 01/28/2010 

Carrie Underwood is following in Jordin Sparks and Jennifer Hudson's footsteps.

The American Idol fourth-season winner has been tapped by the NFL to sing the National Anthem at Super Bowl XLIV on Sunday, February 7.

The performance will be televised by CBS as part of the game's pre-game festivities, which will also include Queen Latifah singing "America the Beautiful."

Sparks, who won American Idol's sixth season, sang the National Anthem the following February at Super Bowl XLII; while Hudson, an American Idol third-season finalist, sang at last year's Super Bowl.

Hudson's performance later became subject to controversy when the Super Bowl show's producer insisted the former Idol finalist -- who was making her first public performance since her mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew had been shot and killed three months earlier -- lip-sync the anthem.
