Unlike Beyonce, people can't throw shots at Alicia Keys after her National Anthem performance at Super Bowl XVLII in New Orleans. One word comes to mind for the singer's set: flawless.

Prior to the kickoff between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers, Keys, sitting at a piano in classic form, sang the National Anthem without skipping a beat. No lip synching here, just the New York City native singing every note of America's rallying cry.

Singing before a crowd of American soldiers, fans and teary eyed athletes, Keys handled this performance with great care, moving the crowd with her powerful voice. This National Anthem showcase is sure to go down as one of the best at the Super Bowl.
