(WAFB) - American Idol Laine Hardy is expected to perform the national anthem ahead of the Saints taking on the Vikings Sunday, Jan. 5. Kickoff is set for 12:05 p.m.

“Laine will be singing the national anthem. He’s a little nervous (please say a prayer for him ) but I just know he will be great,” said Cindy Hardy, Laine’s mother, who is also listed as one of his managers.

The Livingston Parish native was crowned the winner of American Idol season 17. Hardy was the first winner from Louisiana.
