It might not be quite the same as seeing Seattle favorites Macklemore or Alice in Chains rock the 12 Flag Pavillon above the CenturyLink Field turf, but 12s at this weekend's Seahawks game against the Panthers will still have a reason to stay in their seats at the end of the second quarter.
The Panthers confirmed earlier this week that North Carolina-born B.o.B. will perform at halftime of Sunday's divisional-round playoff at Charlotte's Bank of America Stadium.
The 27-year-old Atlanta-based rapper was nominated for five GRAMMY awards in 2010, including Record Of The Year for 'Nothin' On You' featuring Bruno Mars and Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals for 'Airplanes, Part II' with Paramore's Hayley Williams and rapper Eminem. B.o.B. even has a song called 'Beast Mode,' which if played, might just inspire a strong second half from Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch, who has "a really good chance" of playing.
Prior to kickoff, 12s will hear Jordan Smith sing the national anthem. Smith, a 22-year-old Kentucky native, won season nine of NBC's 'The Voice' and has sold more than 1 million singles, making him the best-selling musician in the show's history.
