Menzel sang the song intercut with the traditional shots of soldiers as the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds flew overhead – she previously sung the National Anthem for the 2014 MLB All-Star Game.
John Legend sang "America the Beautiful" before Menzel took the stage, accompanying himself on the piano for a soulful rendition of the song.
Thankfully, no one burst into a clever parody version of "Let It Go," and Marshawn Lynch was not asked if he wanted to build a snowman.
