The Super Bowl's Real Winner Was Jazmine Sullivan

The best two and a half minutes of the event.

The Super Bowl already has a winner in my books and it's clearly Jazmine Sullivan.

The 33-year-old Grammy-nominated music artist stepped out to perform the National Anthem (in a stunning white suit and crystal headpiece by Area) and it was the best two and a half minutes of the event.

Oh yeah, she was also accompanied by Eric Church, marking the first time that the Super Bowl has featured a collaborative rendition of the song in 15 years.

And to say that the Jazmine blew everyone away is a complete understatement.

Even Eric acknowledged Jazmine's immense talent, previously explaining that he only agreed to the gig when Jazmine's name was on the bill.

“I heard [Jazmine] and I’m not missing a chance to sing with her. And that was it. Once I heard her voice, I said, ‘OK, I’m in.' ...She may be the best singer. I was floored. I’m a fan," Eric said in an Apple Music interview.

While there was no shortage of praise for Jazmine, many thought she should have gotten the spotlight to herself:

Now they know good and damn well they should have let Jazmine Sullivan sing the national anthem by her got damn self 🙄

Even though Jazmine had to share the spotlight this time, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that one day she'll be hitting the field for the halftime show!
