Lauren Alaina will kick off the first game of the NFL's Thanksgiving Day tripleheader with a performance of the national anthem on Thursday, November 24.

The 'American Idol' star will open the game between the Detroit Lions and the Green Bay Packers, joined by NFL PLAY 60 youth ambassadors, who are involved in the organization's in-school, after-school and team-based programs.

The 'Idol' runner-up has been on quite the ride since the Season 10 finale. She released her debut album, 'Wildflower,' last month, which hit No. 2 on the Billboard's Top Country Album chart and No. 5 on the Billboard Top 200. The 17-year-old became the youngest female artist to debut that high on the Billboard charts since LeAnn Rimes' 1996 debut, 'Blue.'

Watch Lauren's big performance on Thursday, November 24 at 12:30PM ET on FOX, and find out how her life has changed post-'Idol' in our exclusive interview here.
