The NFL is riding a high like never before after completing a season that featured so many storybook moments it couldn't have been written any better. A team that has been infamously bad for years nearly reached the Super Bowl. The reigning champions won the title for the second season in a row. The most popular person on the planet started dating one of the most popular players in the league, leading to a wave of new fans that the NFL couldn't have done if they'd tried. It had a halftime show people are still talking about. This all culminated in the most-watched telecast in history. Nearly everything went right.


So with that many people watching, it's no surprise people noticed when the NFL tried to subtly fix the one minor hiccup that did happen.

Alicia Keys Performs "If I Ain't Got You"

This year's halftime show was led by Usher, who was joined by several guest singers including Alicia Keys. Keys performed her hit "If I Ain't Got You' in a massive and stunning red dress, accompanied by a stunning piano of the same color. Everything about her set was stunning, however, her first notes stunned fans for a different reason.

Her voice cracked before she kept singing without missing a beat and went on to perform flawlessly. Not racking on her in the slightest, she did an incredible job and it was inconsequential. However, the NFL has tried to sweep this slight blunder under the rug by fixing her singing in post-production. Videos on YouTube no longer feature the voice crack as they have been edited to sound perfect. Below is a comparison of how it happened live vs the edited version now on YouTube.



Due to copyright reasons, I am not able to directly share the official version of the halftime show, but you can view it here. Alicia's performance starts at 4:00. She is incredible and deserves all the praise in the world for her performance.
