BRB, Weeping Red, White & Blue Tears Over Idina Menzel's Super Bowl Performance

We've seen the (dawn's early) light.

O say can you see? Because I can't -- Idina Menzel's rendition of the national anthem at tonight's Super Bowl has left me in a temporarily blinded, patriotic fugue state.

Although it looked like the Broadway legend and IRL Princess Elsa entered the field of the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. on Sunday (Feb. 1) on foot to perform "The Star-Spangled Banner," she was really flown in by a pair of invisible bald eagles. How else can these patriotic feels be explained?

Rise, remove your hats and pledge allegiance to Queen Idina.
