Alicia Keys performs the National Anthem on a piano at Super Bowl 47 in New Orleans! Hey guys thanks for watching ClevverMusic, your source for music news. "Girl On Fire" singer Alicia Keys took center field at the Super Bowl in New Orleans, Louisiana at the Mercedes- Benz Superdome to perform "The Star-Spangled Banner". The track is possibly the most controversial song of the past two weeks thanks to Beyonce's Inauguration lip sync snafu.
Dressed in a sexy maroon dress and slicked to the side hair, Alicia sat at a stark white piano and belted out an interesting version of the National Anthem. It started slow with a jazz feel, and at times was shaky and raspy, but proved she was indeed singing live. No question about that. And, she had no problem with the lyrics as Christina Aguilera famously did in 2011. While Alicia sang with her eyes shut, images of American soldiers overseas were inter-sliced with footage of her performance on the field. Overall, it was moving and we like that she made the song her own, even adding her own twist at the end singing, "living in the home" before belting home of the brave" as she finished the song.
Alicia tweeted before the game, "Almost ready to sing at the #SuperBowl! Is this football appropriate? Heels are my version of cleets! " with a link to this photo. Alicia's National Anthem followed Jennifer Hudson's performance of "America The Beautiful" with the students of Sandy Hook Elementary. The 47th Super Bowl saw East coast VS West Coast as the Baltimore Ravens played the San Francisco 49ers for the championship.
