Kelly Clarkson did not have a Christina Aguilera moment Sunday while performing the national anthem at the Super Bowl at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Unlike Christina, who muffed the lyrics to "The Star-Spangled Banner" at last year's Big Game, Kelly delivered a clean rendition of the song.
In case you placed a bet on how long Kelly's rendition of the national anthem would last, she clocked in at around one minute, 35 seconds.
Before Kelly had her moment in the spotlight, Blake Shelton and his wife, fellow country music superstar Miranda Lambert, performed a duet of "America the Beautiful." Shelton wore a sportscoat with a blue shirt and gray vest underneath, and Lambert looked beautiful in a leather outfit and large, teardrop-shaped pink earrings.
All three artists have a connection to NBC, which aired the Super Bowl. Shelton is a judge/coach on The Voice -- which premiered after the Super Bowl broadcast -- and he will welcome Lambert and Clarkson as guest mentors on his team this season.
The official start of NBC's Super Bowl game broadcast began with a new version of Faith Hill's Sunday Night Football theme. It was the same music, but with revised lyrics to coincide with the Super Bowl.
Miranda and Blake made me proud and I adore Kelly, she was awesome! Solid open all around, I loved it!! Did you???????
