Idina Menzel sings the National Anthem

Posted on


Idina Menzel did her best belt of the National Anthem to open Super Bowl XLIX, sustaining all the right notes for a triumphant performance. When she finished the song, she pumped her fist and mouthed, “Yes.”

The performance drew rave reviews on social media—a big difference from the response she got when she sang “Let It Go” on New Year’s Eve, which prompted her to defend her performance on Twitter.
