Chills.  Tears.  And now I have to put this into words?  What??  Okay, let's make this easy.  WATCH THIS!!!  There were some awesome performances today at President Barack Obama's inauguration, but Kelly Clarkson's performance of "My Country, Tis of Thee" was a monstrous homerun.  Check it out!

Kelly sounded great, of course, but we also have to give her mad props for not wearing that hat Aretha Franklin did when she sang the song at President Obama's first inauguration.  Who could forget this?
