PHOENIX, Arizona (The Adobo Chronicles) – John Travolta introduced her as Adele Dazeem at last year’s Academy Awards. She is none other than Broadway star Idina Menzel, who sang the Oscar-winning Best Song, ‘Let It Go’ from the Disney animated film ‘Frozen.’
The Tony award winner, 43, was just announced as the singer of the national anthem at this Sunday’s Super Bowl XLIX (that’s 49 for the Roman Numeral-challenged).
Despite its confidence in Menzel, the National Football League (NFL) is not taking any chances. It doesn’t want a repeat of the many instances when celebrity singers messed up with the lyrics of the ‘Star-Spangled Banner.’
So, the NFL has decided to project the lyrics of the National Anthem on the stadium’s giant screens to make sure Menzel is not only perfect in pitch but also flawless in words.
Plus, the audience and television viewers can sing along. Now, that would be very patriotic!
As for the half-time show performer Katy Perry… well, she will be Katy Perry.
PHOENIX, Arizona (The Adobo Chronicles) – Singer Katy Perry is no stranger to controversy when it comes to what she wears during her concerts and television appearances — from her yellow-face Geisha costume at the American Music Awards to her infamous provocative attire on the children’s show Sesame Street. The latter never aired.
Now, fans and critics alike are going gaga over what she might wear during her half-time show performance at this year’s Super Bowl XLIX scheduled for February 1, 2015 in Phoenix, Arizona. Will she offend audiences with racist antics or theatrics?
The Adobo Chronicles was given an exclusive sneak peek into Perry’s half-time show performance. Both fans and critics can breathe a sigh of relief.
We are not at liberty to divulge all the details of Perry’s 15-minute performance at the National Football League (NFL) Championship Game, but we can tell you that she will be singing a medley of her top hits. There will be no inappropriate costumes– not even the slightest chance of a wardrobe malfunction.
More importantly, the concert queen will be racially and culturally sensitive and will not offend any single racial minority who will be watching live or on TV.
Perry will have a total of seven costume changes during her performance. Through the magic of choreography, props and stage lighting, all costume changes will happen on stage!
As to what she will be wearing, Perry will don costumes that will be representative of each of the world’s seven continents. “No one will be left out,” she says.
We can also reveal that as far as the Asian continent costume is concerned, it will definitely not be a Geisha attire. Rather she will go on stage as a Philippine Muslim princess, carried on top of bamboo poles by half-naked men. Singkil as it is called in the Philippines.
