Grammy winner Shania Twain to perform at Freedom Mobile Grey Cup Halftime Show

CFL | August 10, 2017

OTTAWA —  With just over three months to go until the 105th Grey Cup presented by Shaw kicks off in Ottawa, the Canadian Football League announced today that the top-selling female country artist of all time, Shania Twain, will headline the Freedom Mobile Grey Cup Halftime Show on November 26th at TD Place in Ottawa. Canada’s largest annual sporting event will be broadcast live on TSN, RDS, ESPN2, BT Sport and on TSN Radio and Sirius XM radio beginning at 6 p.m. ET.

Twain’s Grey Cup performance celebrates her triumphant return and will follow the highly-anticipated release of her fifth full-length studio album, NOW, out September 29th. Solely written and co-produced by Twain, NOW marks her first album release since 2002’s UP!, the same year she first performed at the Grey Cup Halftime Show (Edmonton, 2002).

“It’s an absolute honour to return to the Grey Cup stage in the nation’s capital during Canada’s 150th birthday,” said Twain. “I’m thrilled to be coming home and being a part of the country’s biggest annual party.”

“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,” added Randy Ambrosie, CFL Commissioner. “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.”

Shania is a five-time Grammy Award-winner and the reigning Queen of Country Pop. With more than 90 million albums sold worldwide and U.S. sales topping 34.5 million, Shania remains the top-selling female country artist of all time. Shania’s albums include her Platinum-selling 1993 debut, SHANIA TWAIN; the Grammy  Award-winning, Double Diamond-selling 1995 release, THE WOMAN IN ME; COME ON OVER, the best-selling studio album in Soundscan history by a female artist in any genre and the best-selling country album of all time with over 40 million units sold worldwide; and UP!, Shania’s third consecutive Diamond-selling album release.

Recognizing her indelible impact and achievements in music, Shania is the first and only female artist to receive CMT’s Artist of a Lifetime Award and the Country Music Hall of Fame recently opened the Shania Twain: Rock This Country exhibit. Shania was also honored with the Icon Award at Billboard’s Women in Music ceremony. Shania’s hits include “Any Man of Mine,” “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” “You’re Still the One,” and “Man! I Feel Like A Woman!”.

“Shania Twain is a Canadian legend and a musical star who will light up the Freedom Mobile Grey Cup Halftime Show,” said Chethan Lakshman, VP, External Affairs, Shaw Communications. “We are pleased to work with our partners at the CFL to bring Canadians and our customers exceptional experiences, and we can’t wait for Shania to bring the house down in Ottawa on November 26th.”

The 105th Grey Cup presented by Shaw will be played Sunday, November 26, 2017 in Ottawa at TD Place. This year’s championship will be the first played in Ottawa since 2004 and the first in TD Place Stadium, which was rebuilt for the successful debut of the Ottawa REDBLACKS in 2014.

Less than 1,500 Grey Cup tickets are still available in a variety of sections and price points.

The teams are now set. It will be the Calgary Stampeders vs. Toronto Argonauts playing in the Grey Cup CFL championship game next Sunday at TD Place in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Coverage begins at 6:00pm ET on TSN (Canada) and ESPN2 (USA). The football game starts around 6:30pm ET so Shania's halftime show performance will be around 8:00pm ET.

Shania will most likely sing 4 songs. I'm guessing "Life's About To Get Good", "Swingin' With My Eyes Closed", "That Don't Impress Me Much" and "Man! I Feel Like A Woman!"

It will be the same set she did for the US Open tennis tournament. Even if I hope she will sing "Who's Gonna Be Your Girl" but I really doubt it.

105th Grey Cup: Where, When, How to watch

By Alec Gearty | Sporting News | November 20, 2017 

The chase for the 105th Grey Cup has come down to its final stretch. Only the Calgary Stampeders and Toronto Argonauts are left standing with hopes to claim the CFL's most prestigious honour on the line.

Calgary, who finished the regular season with a 13-4-1 record, is considered the favourite in the matchup. The Bo Levi Mitchell-led Stampeders defeated the Edmonton Eskimos in the Western Final and are a win away from erasing last season's dissappointing finish, where they lost to Ottawa in the Grey Cup. Now, they receive their second chance at a title. It is the third time in the past four years that Calgary has appeared in the annual event. 

Toronto finished the season atop of the East Division. With a record of 9-9, Toronto clawed their way to the Grey Cup. Now, against the Stampeders' high-powered offence, the Argonauts will look to add their league-leading 16 Grey Cup championships.

Here’s everything you need to know about the 105th Grey Cup.

All Times Eastern

When is the 105th Grey Cup?

Normally held on the last Sunday in November, the 105th Grey Cup falls on Nov. 26, 2017.

What time is it being held?

6 p.m.

Where is the 105th Grey Cup?

The Grey Cup will be held at TD Place Stadium in Ottawa — home to the reigning champion Ottawa Redblacks. The stadium seats roughly 24,000.

How to watch/tune into the Grey Cup?

TV - TSN

Chris Cuthbert and Glen Suitor will carry broadcasting responsibilities for TSN. James Duthie will host the pre-game show leading up to kickoff, alongside Rod Smith and Brian Williams. ESPN will broadcast the TSN feed on ESPN2 in the United States, as well.

Radio

Rod Black will handle the play-by-play calls on TSN Radio with Giulio Caravatta on colour commentary. The Grey Cup will also be made available on SiriusXM Radio, Channel 167.

Who is the Grey Cup halftime performer?

Shania Twain is slated as the halftime performer at the 105th Grey Cup. The best-selling female country music artist will take center stage at the Grey Cup halftime for the first time since 2002. It will be the second time that the country superstar will have the honour of performing the halftime show. During the 90th Grey Cup between the Montreal Alouettes and Edmonton Eskimos, Twain put on a spectacle during her Grey Cup debut.

Calgary / Toronto season series

Calgary defeated Toronto in both regular season contests this season. On Aug. 3, the Stampeders won 41-24 behind the flawless play of Mitchell. He threw three touchdowns in that matchup. Two weeks after their first matchup, both teams met again. It was a similar script as Calgary held Toronto to a touchdown in the lopsided 23-7 victory. 

Betting Odds

The Stampeders are a -320 favourite to win the Grey Cup according to Vegas Insider.

She totally lip-synced back in 2002, and her voice was totally fine, so I don't see anything different this time, given all her voice issues.

That would make sense but what has Shania's team done so far that makes sense while promoting this album. LOL! It's actually one of my favorite songs on the album.

Do you think Shania could be a feature artist on the Super Bowl again?
