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.

Thanks for posting. Delta is an AFL fan as the article states, and I hope this won't change her allegiance to the code.

I thought she was gonna sing the blues.

The blues refer to the colour of the jumper of the New South Wales team who will be playing against Queensland (which wear a maroon colour jumper). Renee (ninafan) and her husband Nick are big rugby league fans and will no doubt be delighted at the news.

EDIT: the match will be shown live across the UK and Europe on Sky Sports 1, and in New Zealand on Sky Sport.

This is amazing news. Couldn't have asked for better promotion. The game will undoubtedly be viewed by a large number of people, which will hopefully boost single sales. I was going to watch the game initially, and now that Delta's performing, I'm even more excited, haha!

Translation for the non-Australians?

Eissa - there is a huge rivalry in Australia between rugby and afl football. Delta is a huge sydney swans afl fan - hopefully she doesn't change and be all about rugby!

So I stand on this hill
With my flag held high
With the will to survive
Bullets flying by
Broken hears scattered on this battlefield
Holding out for something real
I won't give up
I won't give in
I fight for hope in this
WAR ON LOVE

And bitches please. Delta has been about AFL since she was a kid. AFL is in her blood. Calm your tits. One performance at NRL isnt going to "change" shit.

Ya'll dumb.

I don't think she'll be replacing AFL anytime soon.

Will this game be broadcast on foxtel as well?

Shower me with confetti rain, down from open skies.

This game will actually be shown live on Channel Nine in Adelaide from 7.30pm local time, and replayed later on Fox Sports. Unfortunately you won't get to see Delta's performance on TV, as both coverage will start just before kickoff.

^ Johnson was talking about Adelaide Artin.

In the NRL statement he talks about wanting to combine The Voice and State of Origin on TV for blockbuster ratings so I wouldnt rule it out just yet...
