Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert's pregame patriotism is the Super Bowl's opening act before Madonna takes her spot in the Super Bowl halftime spotlight.
It's the pop icon's first time on entertainment's biggest platform. Around 110 million people were expected to watch the Super Bowl on Sunday. No other event gathers so many people together in front of the television.
Country stars Shelton and Lambert performed a twangy version of ''America the Beautiful'' before kickoff.
Clarkson sang the national anthem, backed by a childrens' chorus, and there were no mistakes like last year, when Christina Aguilera infamously flubbed a line. Clarkson wore a simple black dress and kept vocal flourishes to a minimum, except when she let loose a bit on the final ''home of the brave'' line.

Kelly Clarkson sang the National Anthem at Super Bowl XLVI between the Giants and Patriots. There was plenty of confusion from people who believed she had something written on her wrist. Some people thought she had some notes, such as the lyrics in case she forgot. But that’s not actually the case; Clarkson has a wrist tattoo that features a cross and the words “Love them more.”

Kelly Clarkson made sure she didn't follow in Christina Aguilera's footsteps. Clarkson performed the national anthem prior to Super Bowl XLVI on Sunday, and she actually did a pretty solid job. She certainly outperformed Aguilera, who completely botched the anthem before last year's big game. Clarkson, who was the winner of American Idol in the show's inaugural season...
Kelly Clarkson’s National Anthem performance at Super Bowl XLVI tonight was spectacular. Earlier this week, we explored the great musician’s past National Anthem performances at a Dallas Cowboys game, the 2011 NBA Finals, and the 2011 World Series – all of which were great.

Madonna’s much-anticipated Super Bowl halftime show is coming up here in just a few minutes. As Jerod did for the Kelly Clarkson National Anthem, he will be recording the halftime show and then uploading to YouTube as soon as I can.
I will be reviewing it, which we will post here as soon as it is over.

Believe it or not, Kelly Clarkson actually had a respectable Anthem performance, even if NBC did her no favors by giving her the chin cam. No doubt Madonna will even things out with a thoroughly wretched set of 500 Spiderman push-ups. Lucky us, she’s even going to be performing that new single where she wants to pretend it’s the ’80s and she’s not 700. Likely she and Nicki...
It’s Super Bowl Sunday and that means it’s time to open your mouths and stuff your stomachs with the years finest choices of junk food. It also means it’s time to open up your pocketbook and put your money where your mouth is and make some bold and sometimes entertaining bets.
Super Bowl is obviously not only the biggest sports event of the year but also the biggest...
