Other notable stars who attended the 102nd running of the Indy 500 were actor Chris Hemsworth and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

This isn’t the first time the "My Life Would Suck Without You" singer has graced the Speedway. She previously sang the anthem at the 2011 Indy 500, when she collaborated with Seal.
The past couple of months have been fruitful for her. She first impressed viewers with her hosting gig at the Billboard Music Awards held on May 20.
Two days later, the singer was crowned as the winning coach on the singing reality show, “The Voice,” when her protégé Brynn Cartelli won the prize as the youngest finalist and winner in the show's history.
Clarkson, who scored a total of over 100 number ones on the Billboard charts, has sold over 25 million albums and 45 million singles worldwide.
