All of that speculation could come to an end Tuesday afternoon when NBC is slated to make a "major talent announcement." The network is set to make the announcement at approximately 4 p.m.Via The Big Lead

  • I will miss Faith Hill on SNL. Her performances were always something I would watch. Faith Hill has all the attributes that most people would want for their daughters: brains, talent, beauty, poise and character. If it can't be Faith Hill on SNL, then Carrie Underwood would be an excellent replacement. SNL will definitely lose viewers if they were to select a POP or Hip-Hop singer.
  • Bring back the men.
  • "SNL will definitely lose viewers if they were to select a POP or Hip-Hop singer."

    What planet are you living on? People tune into Sunday Night Football TO WATCH FOOTBALL!!

    IMO Carrie Underwood is just another drama-queen diva, but, assuming this is true, I'm not going to NOT watch the game because of her. I might time my bathroom break or snack break for when she's on-screen, but I'm not missing the game because of that. And actual FOOTBALL FANS will tell you the same thing; no matter who's singing what song, we're there to watch the game.

    Oh, and SNL is the acronym for "Saturday Night Live."
  • Didn't like Faith Hill. Won't like Carrie Underwood. Just a blatant attempt of the NFL to attract female viewers, which is so against their core audience. Why don't they pick a more natural choice of some performer who most NFL fans and players actually listen to?
  • Since the song is a rip off from a Joan Jett tune why don't they let her sing it then.
  • Carrie, you sure are an excellent replacement voice-wise, but you'll never replace those wonderful, long legs that Faith has! Faith you will be missed!
  • What planet do you live on?/ Have you seen Carrie in a short dress or just shorts?? She is considered to have the hottest legs in the business, and I AGREE!
  • This is a perfect pick - So glad they staying with a country singer
  • hope it comes true, Carrie or Faith are great in their popularity.
  • glad to see Faith leaving, didn't think she fit the part. GO Carrie can't wait for football
  • What a shame!

    Faith Hill was the only reason I watched the opening of SNF and then changed the channel.

    Now this gorgeous professional is being replaced by one of the many air head divas.

    Nice going NBC! It's brilliance like this that keeps you the Number 4 network.
  • Try watching men host football.
  • I am with the FOOTBALL FANS, it does not matter who is singing. I will watch the game. As for Faith being gone, that is great. I did not care for her after she blew a gasket when Carrie beat her at the C.M.A. She (faith) thought she was all that, so I am not too sure about her charactor as victor615 would have it. Lets get the season started.
  • ARE YOU KIDDING ME? AFTER THE LAST FIASCO THEY ARE GOING TO SIGN ON A NEW PUKE C&W SINGER?
    THERE IS NO PHQING WAY I WILL EVER WATCH SNF.
    SICK BAS TARDS.
  • Please, please, please nooooooo....... bring back Pink!!!
  • If I had to choose a replacement .... GRETCHEN WILSON would be it....hands down.
  • Who cares? It's kind of stupid to begin with.
  • GAG she is so pretentious. Don't like her and she comes off as generic but honestly ..whatever. don't watch or listen...those are the times when snacks are replenished and legs are stretched. Oh...and I am girl so the pathetic attempt to get us to tune in by adding a girl to the programming ... huge waste of your money NFL. It has ZERO impact.
  • Carrie is the best, she will do fantastic!
  • I think it's a shame Faith will no longer singing on Sundays. Just hearing her voice was enough to get one pumped for the game about to start. She was also a reminder to "women" that YOUNGER was not always hotter. She's an older woman and still has it going on!!! You don't have to be a young tart(cheerlearder type) to be hot. Guess I'll be taking my time getting to the television with my snacks now...
    But I'm a FOOTBALL fan and would much rather we get down to business and start the flippin game!

  • really? you would not watch the game because of who sings the intro? I don't believe that for a minute. I personally loved seeing Faith Hill. I'm sure Underwood will be just fine (for all you reverse-hat-wearing, self-appointed animal-types....Underwood is married to an NHL player....there - that should satisfy your disdain for a "Diva" - and apparently she is the farthest thing from a Diva there is).
  • I watch SNF, although not from minute one of the pregame show through the last play of the game. I tune it in to see how the game is going and decide if I will watch the rest of it. I have no idea what Carrie Underwood does on the program, so I certainly won't miss her.
