Stadium of Fire performers will be announced Thursday at 2 p.m. at a press conference hosted by America's Freedom Festival.

According to the officials, "Three very popular acts will perform at this year's July 4th show. All Utah press is invited to attend."The press conference should last no longer than 20-30 minutes, including questions and answers, and we will tweet and blog the info as soon as they are announced.

I am taking guesses. I would think One Direction, but they are already playing in Utah in July. Rihanna? Probably not after that "S&M" song.

Blake Shelton? Maroon 5? Keith Urban? Lady Antebellum? Heart? Def Leppard? Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z? (We can hope.)

For the record, I correctly predicted the Beach Boys last year. Also for the record, I missed the previous 2 performers completely (Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley).
