Idina Menzel Nails The National Anthem
Menzel performed the National Anthem at the Super Bowl on Sunday. Menzel, a musical theater vet – with starring roles in Rent and Wicked – and known as the voice of Elsa in Frozen, chose to perform by herself, unaccompanied by instruments or other singers. The last Super Bowl performer to sing the National Anthem acapella was Carrie Underwood in 2010.
Twitter loved Menzel’s strong performance, and her ex Taye Diggs joined the throng of viewers praising Menzel, tweeting a proud picture of their son watching his “baby mama” sing.

‘Idina Menzel’ was trending on Twitter after her performance, as was ‘Adele Dazeem,’ the name accidentally given to her by John Travolta at last year’s Academy Awards.
