NBC F*cks Up Super Bowl National Anthem Broadcast, Confuses Jhene Aiko For Mickey Guyton

Mickey Guyton country music

For the second straight year, country music has represented at the Super Bowl.

Last year, we saw Eric Church join Jazmine Sullivan for a soulful rendition of the national anthem, and this year, it was Mickey Guyton’s turn.

Mickey is inarguably one of the best vocalists in the business, but leave it to NBC to fumble the broadcast.

Prior to kickoff, R&B singer Jhene Aiko was set to deliver a performance of “America the Beautiful,” ahead of the national anthem from Mickey Guyton, but NBC wasn’t sure who was performing.

When it came time for Jhene to step to the mic, NBC panned to Mickey Guyton (waiting to sing the national anthem).


Jhene did her thing though…

And when it was Mickey’s turn to do the Star Spangled Banner, she did a fantastic job as well:

Throwback To Shania Twain’s 2003 Super Bowl Halftime Show

The year was 2003.

The Oakland Raiders were set to take on their former head coach Jon Gruden and the stout defense of his Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl XXXVII.

The game was a blow out, with the Bucs jumping out to a 20-3 lead by halftime and never looking back.

And speaking of halftime, 2003 was the last time a country music act got to perform the show… we’re talking about the great Shania Twain.

Singing her 1999 hit single “Man! I Feel Like A Woman” and 2003’s “Up,” which was released shortly before the Super Bowl, Shania eventually hopped up on a lift and flew out over the audience to end her performance. You know, some real Garth Brooks kind of shit.

Shortly thereafter, No Doubt and Sting took the stage to bring the Super Bowl halftime show to its conclusion.

Unfortunately, we haven’t see a country act since, however Eric Church performed the national anthem alongside Jazmine Sullivan at last year’s Super Bowl LV, and Mickey Guyton will handle the anthem this year as Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals take on Matt Stafford and the Los Angels Rams.
