Latifah also performed the song at Super Bowl XLIV four years ago.

The pregame show also include the singing of the National Anthem, which this year will be performed by opera singer Renee Fleming. Amber Zion will perform in American Sign Language the National Anthem.

This year's halftime show will be headlined by Bruno Mars -- a winner at Sunday's Grammys -- who will be joined by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

More than 164 million viewers in the U.S. watched last year's Super Bowl, the most-watched television program in history.
