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

Maya Rudolph was the commencement speaker at Tulane University’s graduation on Saturday, and the comic concluded her speech with an unexpected twist: a four-minute rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” that included lyrics from both “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” and Beyonce’s “Single Ladies.” (Hey, why not?) Rudolph cited the graduation’s venue, the Superdome in New Orleans, as the inspiration for her jazzed up version. On Saturday, the comic treated Tulane graduates to a few wise words, then bust out her famous Beyoncé impression to perform a raucous, over-the-top rendition of the national anthem. 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.

Here you can write a commentary on the recording "Yes, Maya Rudolph (and Oprah and Beyonce) rocked Tulane’s commencement".
