TINA TURNER UNPERTURBED BY SUPER CROWD

Having performed in front of hundreds of millions of people over her career, Tina Turner isn't afraid of singing in front of that many in one night.

That's what she'll be doing today, as one of the pregame entertainers for the Super Bowl.

Turner said she treats singing in front of a huge audience "as a chance to get reacquainted."

"I used to be nervous, but as the years have gone by, it has turned to excitement and the feeling that it's a kind of reunion," the 60-year-old entertainer said. "Besides, this is not about me, it's about the guys. I'm just decoration, and just there to root them on."

The game is expected to draw a TV audience of 130 million in the United States alone.

Turner will perform a song from her new album as well as her classic "Proud Mary" during the pregame, billed as a tribute to 20th century music.
