The game between the Cincinnati Bengals and LA Rams is just about underway but one of the biggest prop bets will be decided right before kickoff as country music superstar Mickey Guyton will perform the National Anthem of the United States of America just prior to the gridiron showdown between the AFC champion Bengals and NFC champion Rams. Below we will deliver an answer as to how long was the National Anthem this year.

Update: Mickey Guyton went Over with an unofficial National Anthem time of 1:52. That is 17 seconds over the consensus set time.

How long was the National Anthem at Super Bowl 56?

As soon as the rendition by Guyton ends we will give an update as to how long was the National Anthem and show whether it went over or under the set mark. The consensus time for how long will the Star Spangled Banner last is 95 seconds (1 minute and 35 seconds).

This is projected to be one of the shortest singings of the “Star Spangled Banner” in Super Bowl history as Guyton typically likes to get through the song at a rapid pace. Only two versions of the Super Bowl National Anthem have gone under 2 minutes since 2013. Demi Lovato’s rendition lasted just 1 minute and 49 seconds two years ago prior to the Chiefs versus 49ers Super Bowl while Pink closed things out in 1 minute and 52 seconds four years ago in the Patriots versus Eagles showdown.
