By Sophie Schillaci
Pink's Super Bowl journey just got a whole lot sweeter.
The "What About Us" singer is gearing up to perform the National Anthem at the Feb. 4 game, where her hometown NFL team, the Philadelphia Eagles, is now set to take the field.
"Ummm. I’m singing the national anthem and the EAGLES ARE PLAYING?!?!?! IS THIS FOR REAL?!?!?!THATS WHASSUP!!!!!!!!" Pink tweeted on Sunday, before launching into some jibberish.
"I would bet money that my big brother is somewhere crying right now," she added.

Pink joins a growing list of elite artists who have sung the National Anthem at the most-watched television program of the year. The list includes Luke Bryan, Lady Gaga, Idina Menzel, Renée Fleming, Alicia Keys, Billy Joel, Diana Ross, Neil Diamond, Whitney Houston, Harry Connick, Jr., Garth Brooks, Natalie Cole, Vanessa Williams, Luther Vandross, Cher, Faith Hill, Mariah Carey, Dixie Chicks, Beyoncé Knowles, Christina Aguilera and more.
"I would go to Europe and play arenas and have this big fancy tour, and then I would come back and play like the 9:30 club in D.C. to 200 people," she recalled. "And it's this roller coaster, and I remember joking with Justin Timberlake -- my first tour ever in '99 was opening for *NSYNC. And then 10 years later -- not 10 years, but it's 2004 -- I was opening for Justin. And the first day I saw him I was like, 'I've come far!'"
