The 'Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)' star gave a patriotic and powerful performance in Indianapolis tonight.

Kelly Clarkson kicked off Super Bowl XLVI this evening (5th February) with a rousing rendition of the US National Anthem.

Shortly before the performance, country artists Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton gave an emotional rendition of 'American The Beautiful'.

Madonna is set to perform at the half time show of the event and will be joined by Nicki Minaj and M.I.A for a showing of their new song 'Give Me All Your Luvin''.
