If you walked down the street right now and posed the question to an innocent bystander, “Who gave the best National Anthem performance of all time at a Super Bowl?”, you’d hear this list below, guaranteed.
I did an impromptu survey here around the office this week, as I predicted, the names Whitney, Carrie, Jennifer and Faith we uttered repeatedly.
So in honor of Super Bowl 51 airing this Sunday, here’s my Top 5 picks (surprisingly all women) of the best Super Bowl National Anthem Performances EVER.
#5: Cher – 1999
#4: Faith Hill – 2000
#3: Jennifer Hudson – 2009
#2: Carrie Underwood – 2007 – The only one on our list who actually sang it LIVE.
#1: Whitney Houston – 1991 – One word: Breathtaking.
What do you think? Did we miss any amazing performances of Super Bowl’s past? Let us know!
