In light of Queen Bey's lip-synced performance of "The Star-Spangled Banner" at President Obama's inaugaration and Alicia Key's announcement that she will be performing the national anthem at this year's Super Bowl, let's take a look back at the past 5 years. It's interesting to note that out of the past 5 performers, 4 of them are American Idol alumni.
So, who sang it best?
Super Bowl XLVI (2012) - Kelly Clarkson
Super Bowl XLV (2011) - Christina Aguilera
Super Bowl XLIV (2010) - Carrie Underwood
Super Bowl XLIII (2009) - Jennifer Hudson
Super Bowl XLII (2008) - Jordin Sparks
