Alicia Keys Sung “The Star-Spangled Banner” tonight before Super Bowl XLVII, however, she stayed faithful to the original.

Seated at her piano on a stage shaped like the NFL logo, Keys performed a slowed-down version of the anthem to fit her style, clocking in at 156 seconds, breaking the previous record of Natalie Cole‘s 1994 performance (152 seconds).
