Did Kelly Clarkson Sing the Best Super Bowl National Anthem? (POLL)

The Grammy-award winning Kelly Clarkson joins the list of those who've sang the National Anthem at a sporting event, and it certainly tops as one of the best. Miss Independent opened up one of the most highly tuned-in events of the year by belting out the song to kick-off the Super Bowl XLVI on Sunday night.

How do you think the American Idol alum faired with her Natl. Anthem rendition? Was it the best yet? Cast your vote in the poll and defend your answer in the comments!

Kelly  shared how nervous she was on her WhoSay account before the game. Perhaps some of her nerves came from all the criticism Christina Aguilera received the year before when she flubbed the words.

"Just finished rehearsing the anthem in Indy ... wow, I'm actually really nervous about singing at the Super Bowl ha!" Kelly wrote. "Here's hoping I nail it and don't screw it up!"

    Not trying to take away from Jennifer Hudson or for your vote, but Jennifer Hudson lip-synced the National Anthem when she sang at the Super Bowl.

    Kelly Clarkson sings the National Anthem better than anyone. I have heard all her renditions. Just a little bit of soul in her voice. Love her!!! Kelly nailed it live. Whitney and Jennifer Hudson did NOT sing it live. Kelly did and nailed it!!!!
