Idina Menzel and John Legend will perform before the Super Bowl

Illustration for article titled Idina Menzel and John Legend will perform before the Super Bowl

Katy Perry might be headlining the—deep breath—Pepsi Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show, but that’s not the only singing that will happen that day. After all, if singing isn’t the most important part of Super Bowl Sunday, then what is? Well, football, obviously…and commercials. Singing is up there somewhere, at least. Anyway, Idina Menzel and John Legend will be taking on some America-centric musical numbers before the game starts. Menzel will sing the national anthem, and Legend—who is fresh off of a Golden Globe win and Oscar nomination for his song “Glory” from Selma—will sing “America The Beautiful.”


Now, Idina Menzel being Idina Menzel, she’ll probably kill it, and the crowd will want her to do an encore. But we think she should resist the urge to pull out the crowd-pleasing “Let It Go” from Frozen. After all, that song has barely anything to do with football. Instead, we’ve decided to write some new lyrics for “Let It Go” that she can sing instead, and we think this could be a pretty big hit. Make sure to hit play on the YouTube video at the bottom before singing along at home.

“Super Bowl,” to the music of “Let It Go” from Frozen.

The grass grows green on the field tonight

Not a footprint to be seen

A stadium of isolation

And it looks like I’m the MVP

The crowd is howling like this swirling storm inside

Couldn’t keep it in, heaven knows I tried!

Don’t let them in, don’t let them TD

Be the good player you always have to be

Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them know

Well, now they know!

Super Bowl, Super Bowl

Can’t hold it back anymore

Super Bowl, Super Bowl

Turn away and throw the ball!

I don’t care

What they’re going to play

Let the game rage on

The score never bothered me anyway.

It’s funny how some yardage

Makes everything seem small

And the fears that once controlled me

Can’t get past my offensive line at all!

It’s time to see what I can do

Throw to the receiver and break through

No right, no wrong, no rules for me, the ball is free!

Super Bowl, Super Bowl

I am one with the field and crowd

Super Bowl, Super Bowl

You’ll never see me pout!

Here I stand

And here I’ll say

Let the game rage on!

My power flurries through the air into their hands

The ball is spiraling in football fractals all around

And one thought crystalizes like a football blast

I’m never going back,

The past is in the past!

Super Bowl, Super Bowl

And I’ll rise from the third down

Super Bowl, Super Bowl

That perfect quarterback is gone!

Here I stand

In the light of the stadium

Let the game rage on,

The score never bothered me anyway!
