The “Girl On Fire” singer rocked a red fitted dress for the occasion, and doing her own rendition of the Anthem at a big white piano in the middle of the Superdome. And before hitting the center field for her big performance, she told MSN:
“I’m really excited about it, I can’t even lie. I have to rehearse it totally as if it’s a brand new song, because it is actually a brand new song in the style that I’ll deliver it. I’m rehearsing like a maniac.”
And after performing, Keys was seen walking away with her rapper hubby Swizz Beatz. (No lie, she
billy slaughtered the Anthem).
Jennifer Hudson, who performed before Alicia Keys, was joined by 26 children from the Sandy Hook Choir to perform an emotional rendition of “America the Beautiful.”
Hudson, who wow the crowd, rocked a black leather top and a knee-length white skirt.
