Kelly Clarkson To Perform National Anthem At Super Bowl Xlvi
Last year's performer Christina Aguilera sang the lyrics incorrectly whilst singing her rendition, using the words "What so proudly we watched at the twilight's last gleaming" instead of "O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming." There were also reports of lip syncing by Whitney Houston when she performed in 1991, with Jennifer Hudson facing similar accusations in 2005. Garth Brooks almost didn't appear for the 1993 event after network bosses initially refused to show a clip of his forthcoming video at the time 'We Shall Be Free' owing to what they perceived to be disturbing imagery - they changed their mind at the last minute.
Clarkson's people haven't confirmed the news but it has been reported by Rolling Stone magazine. She'll be joining an all-star cast as Madonna performs during the half time show with M.I.A and Nicki Minaj also expected to feature.
