Delta to sing the Blues
MOVE over Rabbits, State of Origin has a new voice - Delta Goodrem.
The Aussie superstar will give the pre-game entertainment in Melbourne on Wednesday night a real headline act.
The star of Channel Nine's phenomenon The Voice, will perform her latest platinum single, Sitting on Top of the World, as well as her smash hit, In This Life, before kick-off at Etihad Stadium.
The NRL's marketing boss Paul Kind declared it a massive coup for the game.
"We've been talking to Channel Nine for some time about getting talent from The Voice involved," Kind said. "It's a great fit because The Voice and the State of Origin are ratings blockbusters. We are thrilled to have Delta perform in front of a crowd of over 53,000."
Delta will perform live on television at 7.43pm in the build-up to 8.10pm kick-off.
She has been better known as an AFL fan and used to be close friends with Swans star Jude Bolton.
No doubt the Origin stars will be lining to meet Delta after the game. Blues five-eighth Todd Carney often tweets about his affection for the singer during episodes of The Voice.
The national anthem will be performed by 11-year-old Victorian, Caitlin Marks, on the eve of her role as Annie in the Broadway musical.
