Alicia Keys' Super Bowl National Anthem will have to top Beyonce's Inauguration performance
While the big talk has been about Beyonce nailing The Star Spangled Banner at President Obama's second inauguration on Monday despite consistent audio problems, let's not forget the another important performance of the National Anthem this year: The one before the Super Bowl on Feb. 3. And this year it will be done by Alicia Keys. no pressure after BeBe knocked it out of the park.
E! notes the announcement for Keys, who will be at her third Super Bowl. Beyonce will be there, too, as the halftime performer. After the performance on Monday, maybe that slate will change.
You can watch Be's performance above, but be sure to note how she takes out her earpiece and doesn't end up off-key or forget any words. If only more singers could do that. We credit the Marine Corps Band for helping out. That has to be it.
