Tori Kelly graced the 147th Kentucky Derby with her rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner."

The singer performed the national anthem in style on Saturday (May 1) at Louisville's Churchill Downs.

“I’m stoked because I’ve always wanted to go to the Kentucky Derby. It’s such an iconic event and historic event. It’s all really exciting," Kelly had said in a USA Today interview ahead of the big day. She'd also promised to fully embrace the fashions attendees are known to sport at the springtime event, including a custom fascinator.

Kelly's fascinator was in a shade of lilac, complementing her cheery floral frock in purple and pink.

This year's event began airing at 5 p.m. ET on Saturday on NBC, available to stream on SlingTV, Hulu with Live TV and FuboTV.
