This week's Ink cover girl -- let's just call her @Kelly_Clarkson -- turned in a killer version of the national anthem at Super Bowl XLVI on Sunday. Below, a sampling of Twitter chatter from fans, celeb friends and Kelly herself. But first, a little video embed of the anthem.
Guess what ... I've never been more nervous in my life than singing the national anthem at the Super Bowl tonight ... say.ly/DUT1nxJ

Kelly Clarkson RULED that anthem. And was so happy to see the Indianapolis Children's Choir with her! #FindYourLightFoundation #gosports

Thank you @Kelly_Clarkson for singing the national anthem the way it should be -- with passion & without ego. #superbowl #kellyclarkson
#KellyClarkson was amazing! For those who criticize her, STFU. She's extremely talented and beautiful no matter what size she is

Thank you @Kelly_Clarkson for bringing dignity, class, and a sterling voice to the National Anthem. Let's hope that Madge is equally as good
