Oh, say can you see why Idina Menzel earned her "wickedly talented" moniker!
The Tony Award winner and "Let It Go" singer belted out the national anthem at Super Bowl XLIX on Sunday, at a controlled and steady pace. The 43-year-old entertainer sang a restrained version of the "Star Spangled Banner" with no vocal flubs, and was accompanied by the sound of flying U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds.
Minutes before taking to the stage, Menzel tweeted about her performance nerves, writing:
Send me good vibes! #SB49— Idina Menzel (@idinamenzel) February 1, 2015
But, the polished pro pulled it off, while looking cool and collected. Dressed in a black chiffon jumpsuit with a flutter cape sleeve, Menzel owned the stage at the University of Phoenix stadium in Arizona, and added black open-toe platform heels to complete her look. But it was her large statement pinky ring that stole the fashion show, as it sparkled up against her crisp burgundy manicure.
The "If/Then" actress is no stranger to high-profile performances, and previously sang the American national anthem at the 2014 MLB All-Star game. Though she has been performing for nearly two decades, Menzel became a household name after John Travolta lovingly introduced her as "Adele Dazeem" before her rendition of "Let It Go" at the 2014 Academy Awards.
Earlier this week, bets were placed in Las Vegas over the length of Menzel's version of the national anthem, which according to Good Morning America, clocked in at roughly two minutes and five seconds.
How do you think Menzel fared at the Super Bowl?
