Lea Michele is one of our favorite celebrity vegans, whose most notable activities involve not only exercising her vocal chords, but animal rights as well (The beloved actress/singer is a staunch supporter of banning horse-drawn carriages in NYC.)

The song savvy superstar will be singing “America the Beautiful” at this year’s Super Bowl, following in the footsteps of other famed artists such as Alicia Keys, Faith Hill, Ray Charles, Mary J. Blige and Queen Latifah, who have all performed the song before.

Michele is no stranger to singing at big sporting events, however, as she and the Glee cast sang the National Anthem at the World Series in 2009.

Following the game, the season premiere of Glee will air. Where Michele and the rest of the cast will be singing a mash-up of Michael Jackson’s Thriller, accompanied by a giant, football field-sized dance— it’s rumored to be the most expensive Glee episode ever produced.

Check out a teaser of the episode below!
