Following the criticism of Beyoncé lip-syncing “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the inauguration, the pressure was on for Alicia Keys when she took on our country’s theme song at this year’s Super Bowl. She kept it classy in a red dress and sang a moving, piano-driven version that the crowd and players all seemed to approve of. No lip-syncing here. Unless Alicia is a fucking master at the art of lip-syncing, which may be just as impressive. Watch above.
