The game’s halftime performance will feature Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Earth, Wind and Fire, Janelle Monae and Dr. John.

Recent Grammy winner Gary Clark Jr. will sing the national anthem and also perform during the halftime show. Folk-rock singer Serena Ryder will sing the Canadian national anthem.
