Kelly Clarkson Super Bowl National Anthem: Nailed or Failed?

by at . Comments

She didn't forget any lyrics, don any especially tight clothing or hold the final note for 45 seconds.

Instead, Kelly Clarkson simply did what she did best prior to Super Bowl XLVI tonight: she showed off an incredible voice, clocking in the national anthem at just under one minute and 34 seconds (for those of us who may or may not have wagered on its length).

Were you impressed by the performance? Did Kelly nail or or fail it? Watch Clarkson honor America now:

HUGE improvement from last year's disaster.. Although I do prefer Carrie Underwood's Super Bowl national anthem in 2010. Feels more authentic, because it was acapella, just her and her voice. Absolutely beautiful. I wished Kelly did it without the backing of music and BG vocals too.. it would've been GREATER than this. But, AMAZING JOB! :D

Kelly was spot-on perfect! Those kids singing the descant chorus was so beautiful; brought tears to my eyes! Possibly one of the best Superbowl renditions of all time!

I'll be the first to say it was a good national anthem. Well done.
