Kelly Clarkson sang her rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” at the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday afternoon, causing vast reactions among IndyCar fans on social media.


Kelly Clarkson’s performance of the national anthem, “The Star Spangled Banner,” was a hit among fans at the Indianapolis 500 event at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sunday afternoon. Twitter blew up with different reactions of people praising the three-time Grammy-winning artist.

“Kelly Clarkson can sing all the national anthems. She’s so damn good. #Indy500,” one tweet read.

Another second the motion, saying that the “American Idol” champion “should always sing” at the Indianapolis 500 events, noting that it should become a tradition.


This year's rendition of the anthem was Clarkson’s second consecutive performance at the Indianapolis 500, and her third overall after singing with Seal and David Foster in 2011.

“It’s a pleasure to welcome Kelly back to IMS on Race Day to sing the national anthem for hundreds of thousands of fans in the stands and millions of viewers around the world,” said IMS President J. Douglas Boles. She is a global icon and an incredible singer, and our fans have loved her performance of the anthem last year and in 2011.”


Before her performance, the 37-year-old, as she walked the red carpet of the event, accidentally fell before walking up the stage. She remained calm and graceful despite the slip, raising her hands in the air as the crowd cheered her on.

Fans shared the moment of their favorite artist on social media, celebrating her “graceful recovery” and her realness despite being famous. The singer herself also took to Twitter her epic moment, saying:


“Best part of my day is always revealing to people that might not know how utterly not cool I am.”

Clarkson sang the national anthem in other sports events in the past, the 2012 Super Bowl being a notable one. The “The Voice” judge was backed by a children’s choir as she beautifully sang for the crowd.
