Kelly Clarkson... Alicia Keys... Christina Aguilera...

... Renée Fleming?!?

The folks behind Super Bowl XLVIII thought outside the pop music box this year for its national anthem performer, choosing one of America's most respected opera singers to honor this nation prior to kickoff between the Seahawks and Broncos.

Yes, opera and football. How did the two worlds mesh?

Very well, thanks to the soprano skills of Fleming, who belted out one of the more memorable renditions in recent memory.

Check it out here, compare it with a few past Super Bowl singers below and then sound off below...

How would you grade the Renée Fleming Super Bowl national anthem?

I'm glad that Renee didn't try to butcher our national anthem by adding her own notes or forgetting the words (cough) Christina Aguilera (cough). The national anthem is the most beautiful the way it was written. And she did it justice.
