CFL announces Shania Twain to play halftime show at 105th Grey Cup
Country music superstar Shania Twain will headline the halftime show at the 105th Grey Cup Nov. 26 at TD Place Stadium in Ottawa, the CFL announced Thursday.
This will be the second time Twain has performed at the CFL’s annual championship game. The 51-year-old performed hits “I’m Gonna Getcha Good!” and “Up!” at the 90th Grey Cup at Commonwealth Stadium back in 2002.
“It’s an absolute honour to return to the Grey Cup stage in the nation’s capital during Canada’s 150th birthday,” Twain said in a press release. “I’m thrilled to be coming home and being a part of the country’s biggest annual party.”
Twain is a five-time Grammy winner, 13-time Juno winner and has sold more than 90 million albums worldwide in her career.
Born in Windsor and raised in Timmins, Twain will be performing in her home province.
“Shania is a massive Canadian icon and a global superstar, so we are so excited that she will help us cap off such a significant year for our country at the 105th Grey Cup in Ottawa,” CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie said. “This promises to be a fantastic event and a special performance for our fans and viewers across Canada and all around the world. I can’t wait to get the party started at my first Grey Cup as commissioner.”
