Maya Rudolph Imitates Beyoncé, Butchers the National Anthem at Tulane’s Graduation.

Former “Saturday Night Live” star Maya Rudolph sang the national anthem at Tulane University’s commencement last weekend. The graduates at Tulane University got an extra special treat on Saturday, May 16, when Saturday Night Live alum Maya Rudolph gave the college’s commencement speech — and an impromptu rendition of the “National Anthem” during the graduation in New Orleans’ Super Dome. “I stand here humbled, gracious, and completely naked under this robe,” Rudolph, 42, quipped. “It really is a true honor to be with all of you as you begin this new phase of your life, as you embark on this exciting and challenging journey of being sober during the day.” The Bridesmaids actress didn’t attend Tulane herself, but her father Richard Rudolph graduated from the school in 1968, and her cousin Sabrina Rudolph was amongst the graduates in the crowd. “I majored in not washing my feet and advanced Zig-Zag rolling,” she said. “I didn’t know who I was or what I was going to do with my life when I finished college.

And on Tulane University’s graduation on Saturday, Rudolph milked the stage at the Superdome in New Orleans, the hallowed ground that hosted Beyonce’s 2011 Superbowl performance, with a special in-character performance. Rudolph, who is actually a very talented singer, takes this joke way further than expected, filling around four minutes with ludicrous cadenzas and other vocal acrobatics. Now I don’t speak Latin so I don’t know what that means, but I do speak Pig Latin… so I know how to say “I EAKSPAY IGPAY ATINLAY.” I didn’t go to Tulane.

And when are you going to wash your feet?” He was realistic, supportive, deflected the responsibility back to me and subtly showed his support for his daughters pursuit of a life in Fart Jokes. So like this: If I’m in a scene with you President Fitts and you say, “hey, you’re Oprah Winfrey.” And I say, “No I’m not.” Then our scene would be over. YOU GET A COLLEGE DIPLOMA!” If I could give my 21 year old self any advice it would be take as many bikini photos as you can now because your body is smokin’ hot.
