Carey and No Doubt are set to perform live from Rockefeller Plaza before the New York Giants-Dallas Cowboys game at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on Sept. 5.

The hourlong pregame show will air at 7:30 p.m. EDT on NBC.

Carey says she's thrilled to be performing in New York - which she called her hometown - and adds she's looking forward to making the season launch "even more festive."

No Doubt drummer and New Orleans Saints fan Adrian Young says he's excited to take part, and noted that the band performed at Super Bowl in 2003.

Carey recently released the single "Triumphant (Get 'Em)." No Doubt's new album, "Push and Shove," is out Sept. 25.

Carey will also serve as a judge on the upcoming season of "American Idol."
