You don’t get much more patriotic than an American Idol singing the national anthem at a baseball game: we’re surprised Kelly Clarkson wasn’t also holding an apple pie during her appearance at the World Series game between the Texas Rangers and San Francisco Giants on Saturday. How does Clarkson stack up against other past Idols performing our national anthem? Well, being that this isn’t the first time Kelly has performed the “Star Spangled Banner” at a sporting event, you’ll be unsurprised to know her performance is flawless. Jump below to watch!
The Texas-born superstar has been going country lately, making her an even more appropriate choice to belt “The Star Spangled Banner” at the game. Clad in a Rangers shirt to show some love for the home team, Clarkson delivered a lovely, pitch-perfect rendition of our beloved anthem. They’re probably clearing a place for her on Mt. Rushmore already.
