JoJo to Sing National Anthem at SummerSlam

Move over Lilian Garcia, a new singing Diva is set to hit the high notes!

Total Divas star JoJo will perform the National Anthem prior to SummerSlam this coming Sunday.

JoJo expressed her excitement to WWE.com at being chosen, saying, “I really feel so so blessed. I actually want to scream!” I feel blessed to even be considered to sing the National Anthem, especially for such a big event like SummerSlam.”

It’s not the first time that JoJo has sang at a WWE event. Back in late June, JoJo debuted on WWE Main Event, singing Tons of Funk’s theme song. Since then, WWE has released a studio version on iTunes.

Exciting times for JoJo! We’re just glad it’s not Cee Lo Green performing again – forget you!

SummerSlam airs this coming Sunday, August 18th.

What do you think of JoJo getting this chance to shine?

    Good for her, I just hope she doesn’t blow it

  • AWESOMENICK

    Eh…I don’t know how I feel about this

  • Kaitlyn.Lover<3

    :O Another Diva on SummerSlam? WOW

    • NicoleMorrison

      It’s a miracle, but is JoJo really considered a Diva at the moment?

      • BorisG

        I think yes, because on the backstage segment, Bellas asked JoJo did she even debut on WWE, and she said: I’m pretty sure I did last week, singing on Main Event. And, she is on WWE.com Divas roster, so yes, she is.

  • Foreveryoungx

    Hope she doesn’t mess it up! Good luck, JoJo.

  • Jamaica Taylor

    As in the words of Rupaul, “Don’t fu*k it up”, Jojo.

  • Danielle Richardson

    I hope she does well like i commented before i think she is a awesome singer, but i don’t really think she is going to be here for long.

    • Jamaica Taylor

      She is 19 so we’ll see. Trust me they will find another “jojo” if she can;t get the job done.

      • Danielle Richardson

        Totally agree!

        • Jamaica Taylor

          Trust me I know. I’m aspring WWE Diva. I know what the want and if they don’t get it dead on, they will fire, replace you and with someone that looks almost exactly like you to do what you fali to do. It’s a cold business.

          • Danielle Richardson

            I know because alot of fired have been let go about everything u have wrote about

  • shameronstar

    If JoJo can channel her inner 1991 Superbowl Whitney Houston rendition she’ll be good to go!

  • shameronstar

    Now to be fair, “Somebody Call My Momma” really isn’t a great song to sing to especially a female, so I think this time she’ll get a much better opportunity to show what she’s got! I’m sure JoJo is aware of how important this not only as a wwe diva but also as a singer so she’ll do her best to make this a good moment for herself and wwe!

    • Matty Ryan

      Exactly! The original track, JoJo’s voice, and Naomi’s voice don’t blend well together.

  • Matty Ryan

    JoJo = Layla’s and Lilian’s replacement.

  • revivingophelia

    I hope she practices a lot… and that she doesn’t forget the words. (That is not meant as any sort of dig on her, but even professional singers like Christina Aguilera have forgotten the words under pressure before.)

  • Lily

    Congrats to her!

  • Lily

    I also hope that she doesn’t mess up because this song is so hard to perform and even professionals like Christina Aguilera mess up.

    • Jtiera

      But it wasn’t Christina’s year that time everything was going so wrong for her around that time. Lol

  • Jtiera

    But this is Lillian’s job, she better get up there and sang then cause ch…

  • http://au.groups.yahoo.com/group/WWE_Divas/ PrinceArtie

    Gurl practice like crazy…i like jojo alot & hope she makes it…..

  • Dontarius

    Congratulations Jo Jo. Give it your all and kill it !

  • Lilreuche ?

    aww i love it when Lillian sings it </3 hopefully jojo does good

  • Kessa

    as i was reading this on twitter i thought it was the ‘other’ jojo, the ‘get out/leave’ singer. :( i’m kinda disappointed now.

  • ?xXwhitenoiseXx ?

    I have a feeling that WWE will keep her a singer until shes 21 or so then they’ll have her wrestle. Anyways, I like her voice so yay!:)

  • Laquane Anderson

    I hate to be that guy but I never thought Lilian cud sing anyway lol

  • Kaitlyn.Lover<3

    Lillian Garcia vs Jojo Offerman in a Singing Batle at SummerSlam! xD

    • Lilreuche ?

      That would be cool tbh! I think Lillian would win though

  • charovnica

    Well,damn…imagine how stressed she’s right now knowing that if she fuck it up people will tear her apart :D

    • Kaitlyn.Lover<3

      Yep, she will be remembered forever as that girl who messed up the nacional anthem!

      • Ittyx

        I think that award goes to Christina what-the-fuck-happened-to-that-bitch Aguillera :D

        • Kaitlyn.Lover<3

          I was only talking about the wrestling community, not worlwide xD
          But yes, i don´t know what happened to her, she is an amazing singer!

  • Das Santos

    Boy call me crazy but JoJo and AJ should team up, they’re both small and adorable looking. ANyways I root for Jojo hope she does good.

  • BorisG

    So JoJo and Eva will both be at SummerSlam

  • JoeWWE

    It’s weird to think how quickly WWE might turn on Jojo if she can’t get the job done at Summerslam even when its not a wrestling orientated thing she has to do.

  • dagmii

    That’s cool :D
