Kelly Clarkson Sings The National Anthem

Becky Bain / June 8, 2011

And she sang all the lyrics in the correct order! What more could we ask for? While you’re waiting for the other 100-or-so seconds of Kelly Clarkson’s “Let Me Down” to surface, take the jump to watch the native Texan effortlessly belt out the “Star Spangled Banner” at game 4 of the NBA Finals, held in Dallas on Tuesday night. It is, of course, all part of an effort to add to her beloved Mavericks’ home court advantage — and it worked.

A slam-dunk performance, as usual. Afterward, of course, Kelly went right back to cheering the home team.
