Got off to a good start.
Tonight's Super Bowl XLV viewers got a taste of "Glee" star Lea Michele, as she belted a straightforward version of "America the Beautiful" to help kick off the game. She was followed by Christina Aguilera's rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner."
The 24-year-old singer and actress sported a cream-colored coat and wide-leg trousers, complete with her brown locks in soft waves, and was surrounded by service members in navy suits under the shadow of red, white and blue flags. Michele definitely showed off her robust pipes, holding the last note for a few seconds. After her performance, she tweeted, "OMG THAT WAS AN OUT OF BODY EXPERIENCE!!!!! SO AMAZING!!! WHAT AN HONOR AND JOY!!!!”
The highly anticipated Super Bowl episode of "Glee" will air directly after the game on FOX.
