NEW YORK -- Mariah Carey and No Doubt are superstar acts, but they'll be the openers for the NFL's first game of the season.
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."
Carey recently released the single "Triumphant (Get `Em)." No Doubt's new album, "Push and Shove," is out Sept. 25.
On Wednesday, NFL Network announced that singer Cee Lo Green would perform the opening theme to "Thursday Night Football" this season, beginning on Sept. 13, when the Bears visit the Packers at 8 p.m. ET.
