INDIANAPOLIS — Kelly Clarkson is on tap to deliver the national anthem before Super Bowl XLVI. She’ll be on the field for a brief moment in time, but a ton rides on this for the singer.
Great performance — Whitney Houston-like, circa Super Bowl XXV — and she can look forward to being piped into high school auditoriums for years to come. Blow it, and she’s finished.
All right, that’s strong, but you can’t muff this one, Clarkson.
Here we go:
6:17 p.m. ET: Clarkson is off to a good start. Super intense look from Tom Brady along the Patriots’ sideline.
6:18 p.m. ET: School children, military, Eli Manning — everyone digging this.
6:19 p.m. ET: She nailed it, folks.
