Clarkson kept it simple in almost every respect, from her vocals to her outfit. The singer's rendition of the national anthem, backed by a children's choir, featured no forgotten words and no excessive vocalizing.

Beyond that, the most dramatic part of her performance was the debut of Clarkson's new blunt bangs. You like?

Clarkson is set to make an appearance on NBC's The Voice as a guest mentor for Team Blake Shelton during the hit show's second season.
