It was not the first time that Clarkson graced the Speedway with her fantastic performance. She had sung the national anthem at the Indy 500 held in 2011, collaborating with Seal.

Getting a chance to perform the national anthem is considered to be one of the highest privileges that a singer can have in his or her career, and Clarkson gave her best.

This year's Indy 500 has been in the news for multiple reasons. It was Danica Patrick's last race, and it ended in the same way as her final Daytona 500 race in February: with a crash that wouldn't allow her to finish the race. 

The event also saw the appearance of the B2 Bomber aircraft which left the audience asking for more. The winner of the crash-filled Indy 500 was Will Power of Australia.
