Kelly Clarkson is one of my favorite American Idols. They struck gold with that girl. The original and best American Idol IMO. Anyway, girlfriend rocked out the national anthem at the super bowl last night.
It was amazing. Goosebumps, tears â€“ the whole nines. Loved it! She also looked gorgeous with her bangs, straight hair and cute black dress. Best National Anthem in a long time, if you ask me.
Check out the video below in case you missed it or just want to watch it again.
According to a CBS news poll, more than 88% of respondents said she “rocked it!”
The reviews on Twitter were near-universal in their praise: “Hands down best ever.” “OUTSTANDING! Man, that girl can SING!!” “@Kelly_Clarkson nails National Anthem.” “THE best national anthem of all time.”
Additionally, Social media sharing site Add This said on Twitter: “We saw a 4300% spike in searches for @kelly_clarkson when she sang the National Anthem tonight! #superbowl”
That is craziness! I think she out did Madonna, even given her 1:22 minute time slot VS Madonnaâ€™s 12 minutes.
Kelly herself acknowledged what a huge task she was about to undertake saying,
“Just finished rehearsing the anthem in Indy … wow, I’m actually really nervous about singing at the Super Bowl ha! Here’s hoping I nail it and don’t screw it up!”
Kelly seems to be back on her â€śAâ€ť game. Her singles are doing quite well and she is set to mentor Blake Sheltonâ€™s team on The Voice this season. I will definitely be tuning in for that.
What did you think of Kelly Clarksonâ€™s National Anthem at Super Bowl 2012?
