A wild NFL playoff culminates in Miami with arguably one of the best matchups fans could have hoped for when it all began. The Kansas City Chiefs boast one of the NFL’s most potent offense — in consecutive weeks quarterback Patrick Mahomes led comebacks despite trailing by 10 and 24 points, in the championship and divisional rounds, respectively. On the flip side, the San Francisco 49ers boast arguably one of the NFL’s most lethal defenses. In the championship round, the 49ers shutout Aaron Rodgers for the entire first half.

Which side will come out on top when the final two teams of 2019 collide in Miami Gardens? We’ll find out soon enough. Until then, here’s everything you need to know about the Big Game:

Multi-platinum singer and songwriter Demi Lovato will sing the national anthem ahead of Super Bowl LIV. Lovato is a Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, actress, advocate, philanthropist and business woman. According to the NFL‘s press release, within hours of the release of Lovato’s fifth studio album, CONFIDENT, “Cool for the Summer” trended worldwide and hit #1 on iTunes in 37 countries. 

In addition, on behalf of the National Association of the Deaf (NAD), Christine Sun Kim, internationally renowned sound artist and performer, will sign the National Anthem in American Sign Language.

Who will perform at halftime?

Jennifer Lopez and Shakira will headline the Super Bowl LIV halftime show in Miami. 

“Ever since I saw Diana Ross fly off into the sky at the Halftime Show, I dreamed of performing at the Super Bowl,” Lopez said in a statement.  “And now it’s made even more special not only because it’s the NFL’s 100th anniversary, but also because I am performing with a fellow Latina.  I can’t wait to show what us girls can do on the world’s biggest stage.”
