Two of America's most popular pop stars got ready to ruuuuuuuumble at President Barack Obama's inauguration on Monday.
In one corner: Kelly Clarkson and her rendition of “America.”
In the other: Beyonce and her interpretation of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
At the end of Clarkson's "America," Chuck Schumer exclaimed to the crowd: “Wow!”
During Beyonce's "Star-Spangled Banner,” the singer dramatically dropped her earpiece, prompting one watcher to tweet: "Taking out the earpiece is Luke turning off the targeting system in the Death Star trench."
