Organisers of the US SUPER BOWL are playing it safe this year with a performance from ALICIA KEYS.
Last year’s half-time performance saw the now-infamous ‘wardrobe malfunction’, where one of Janet Jackson’s breasts was revealed during a performance with Justin Timberlake.
At this year’s event, taking place on February 6 and broadcast in front of an audience of millions, Keys will open the show with ‘America The Beautiful’, according to the BBC.
The song was once performed there by Ray Charles, and Keys will perform it with 150 students from the Florida School For The Deaf And Blind, attended by the late jazz legend as a child in 1937.
Keys called Charles “an artist I admire, miss and respect,” adding “I know that this is going to be a very touching and memorable moment.”
As previously reported, half time entertainment will be provided by Paul McCartney.
Last year, 20 CBS-owned TV stations were fined $550,000 by regulators after Jackson’s nipple was flashed at over 100million viewers.
