Idina Menzel is set to perform at a major event and she won’t have to sing “Let It Go.”

The Today show announced this morning that the Broadway star will be tasked with singing the national anthem at the Super Bowl. John Legend, now an Oscar nominee for his song “Glory” from Selma, will sing “America the Beautiful.” Last year, Renée Fleming performed the national anthem.

Katy Perry is the game’s halftime performer, and she has announced that Lenny Kravitz is her “first special guest.”
