Jackie Evancho Sings National Anthem at Inauguration: How Did She Do?

by at .

It happened this afternoon in Washington D.C.

After weeks of hype and speculation, Jackie Evancho performed the national anthem in front of thousands and thousands of spectators and millions of people watching at home.

She did so, of course, prior to Donald Trump being sworn in as President of the United States. (Oh, right, that also happened this afternoon in Washington D.C.)

But she saw it as an opportunity to further her career and to honor her country, so it's difficult to blame the 16-year old for making the decision.

So let's forget any controversy surrounding Evancho taking to this worldwide stage and let's focus on how she actually did instead.

The teenage remembered every lyric, which is more than we can say for many A-Listers who have sang this same famous song prior to the Super Bowl.
