Everyone else continue:

American Idol winner Kris Allen will perform at his first major sporting event since winning the Idol crown when he sings the U.S. national anthem on Sunday, June 7, prior to Game 2 of The Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and Orlando Magic at the STAPLES Center.

Allen’s performance continues the NBA’s tradition of having Idol winners
perform the anthem at the league’s championship series. The Finals will be
Allen’s first appearance at a marquee sporting event before heading out on
the American Idol 2009 Summer Tour. Since 2004, the NBA has worked with
winners Kelly Clarkson, David Cook, Ruben Studdard, Carrie Underwood,
Taylor Hicks, and Jordin Sparks.

The anthem will be televised live on ABC in the U.S. and to a worldwide
audience in 215 countries and territories beginning at 8:00 p.m. ET.
