Kelly Clarkson Performs National Anthem at Indy 500: Watch

Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson sings the national anthem before the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500 auto race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis on May 26, 2019. 

Kelly Clarkson kicked off the festivities at the Indy 500 today (May 26) with her rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner."   

Prior to her performance at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the singer had a bit of an awkward moment on the red carpet, tripping on a crack and stumbling. Always one to laugh at herself, Clarkson tweeted out video of the snafu, writing, "Best part of my day is always revealing to people that might not know how utterly not cool I am. That damn crack was hidden by the carpet man!"

Fortunately, she was able to catch herself and go on to sing before the race. Check out video of her performance as well as her tweet about her near-fall below.
