Our American Divas were out in force to celebrate the second term inauguration of President Obama in Washington, DC. Kelly Clarkson was the first to show her patriotic pride, giving a rousing rendition of My Country Tis of Thee which concluded with quite a few held notes that really let Kelly's impressive vibrato shine. Overall this was a performance that wasn't as polished as Beyonce's, but it's hard to knock the emotion it packed.
Beyonce had the honour of performing the American National Anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner. Bringing a little bit of her own creative flair to the proceedings, the singer changed up the anthem's melody and arrangement, adding a contemporary twist to. Despite some apparent problems with her ear monitor, Beyonce still soared as only she can, turning in a pristine performance.
Though both Divas shone bright, which one had you waving your flag hardest: Beyonce or Kelly Clarkson? Let us know in the comments!
