Alicia Keys at the Public Inaugural Ball, January 21, 2013 (Mario Tama/Getty Images)The Super Bowl hasn’t been just about football in quite some time. When it comes to Las Vegas odds, the pop culture moments surrounding the big game garner just as much attention as the game itself.
R.J. Bell of pregame.com has provided some of the most fringe Las Vegas odds for the buzzy non-football happenings taking place at Super Bowl XLVII.
Amongst the most popular: How long it will take Alicia Keys to sing the National Anthem? The Grammy award-winning singer has said that she’ll present her own version of the song. “Hopefully I can do it in my style and my way,” she told The Daily Beast recently at the Sundance Film Festival. “That’s what I want to achieve: to do a very special version of it that only I could do.”
And how long might that version be? The odds are whether or not it will run over or under 2 minutes and 5 seconds in length?
Some of the other top odds? Chances on whether or not Keys will be booed… Chances that Keys will forget at least one word of the National Anthem (as Christina Aguilera did in 2011)… Whether or not Beyonce’s hair will be straight or curly … and whether or not Beyonce will wear her hair up or down.
