Over/under: 1 minute, 34 seconds
Research on K. Clarkson's three biggest anthem renditions found that she was under the 94-second mark in each of them. Going with the under seems like the easy call. But that's what they want you to do. Surely, singing in front of 100 million people will provide an overblown intro and extra flourish on the high notes. It's not like Clarkson is Jennifer Hudson, who shrilly and pompously lasted 2 minutes, 29 seconds in her performance at Super Bowl XLIII, but she won't be speeding either. And b.t.w. Kelly omitting one word from the anthem : YES (+250.) Is it Super Bowl Sunday yet ?.
