The best “Big Game” National Anthems are listed below.  This always has so much of a build-up.  It’s on the biggest stage in the world for roughly two and a half minutes.  I always love that there is a prop bet for the time it takes for the singer to complete the anthem.  Chris Stapleton is this year’s performer and if you aren’t familiar with this artist he’s a Blues/Country artist with a big voice.  He usually accompanies himself with an electric guitar and has a big voice when he performs.  According to Sportingnews.com, the over/under for his performance is set to 1:59.  If you were to place a bet he’d finish under and he finishes under that time, you could win money.  Let the best “Big Game” National Anthems guide you.

StudyFinds.org put together a small list of the best National Anthem performances before the Big Game kickoff.  They span over 30 years with Whitney Houston the obvious choice at number one.  She performed it in 1991 and certainly set the bar.  I’d even say nobody has been able to touch her memorable performance.  She sang it with a nice pace and it definitely came in at a little over two minutes.  With Chris Stapleton having a pretty big voice, I don’t think he’s one to rush when he sings.  I think his performance will run past a minute and fifty-nine seconds.  I think he’ll hit two minutes and thirty-six seconds.  Watch the best “Big Game” National Anthems below!
