If OneRepublic didn’t impress you much at the 2016 Grey Cup halftime show, the CFL has booked someone who will for 2017.

Shania Twain will perform at halftime at the 105th Grey Cup on Nov. 26 at TD Place in Ottawa, the CFL announced Thursday.

“It’s an absolute honour to return to the Grey Cup stage in the nation’s capital during Canada’s 150th birthday,” said Twain, the top-selling female country artist of all time. “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.”

Twain previously performed at the Grey Cup halftime, in Edmonton in 2002. She will release her fifth studio album – “NOW” – on Sept. 29.
