In many cases, the renditions of the national anthem at the Super Bowl are just as memorable as the halftime shows during the Super Bowl.
The performance of "The Star-Spangled Banner" is a showcase for vocal skill, and it is not a simple song to sing.
This is in contrast to the Halftime performances, which are typically full of dancing and visual bombast.
Due to the fact that many performances appear to be almost too perfect, a lot of spectators are wondering whether
or not the national anthem that is played during the Super Bowl is actually performed live.
The solution, on the other hand, is a little bit more complicated.
In a nutshell, the answer is "sort of, usually."
In spite of the fact that the majority of performers actually sing live, they also have a pre-recorded backing track in case there are any sound problems.
Specifically, this was the case with Whitney Houston's delivery of the national anthem during the Super Bowl in 1991,
which is considered to be the most famous performance of all time. There was a recording that was used from Houston's initial take in the studio, and it was played during the big game.
