Amanda Gorman: Joe Biden’s inaugural poet to take part in Super Bowl pregame show

Good Morning America reported on Wednesday that Gorman has joined the pregame schedule. GMA host Robin Roberts teased “a very special addition to the pregame festivities” during the morning’s broadcast.

NFL officials told TMZ that “the recitation of the poem will air nationally on CBS and be featured in-stadium”. Gorman’s poem will reportedly pay tribute to three honorees selected by the NFL: a teacher, a nurse, and a Marine veteran.

The Independent has contacted the NFL for more information.

Gorman earned abundant praise for her reading of her poem “The Hill We Climb” during Biden’s inauguration at the US Capitol on 20 January.

The poet – the youngest to read at a presidential inauguration in the US – climbed to the top of Amazon’s best sellers list after the inauguration broadcast. She also left Anderson Cooper “transfixed” during an interview on CNN.

Super Bowl LV, the 55th Super Bowl, will take place on 7 February in Tampa, Florida. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will play against the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Weeknd will perform during the Halftime Show, following up on Shakira and Jennifer Lopez’s joint performance last year.
