Jimmy Buffett Drops Mic After Singing National Anthem at NFC Championship

Playing Jimmy Buffett Does Mic Drop After Singing NFL National Anthem

Social media went wild after Jimmy Buffett did a mic drop after performing the national anthem at the New Orleans Saints game Sunday. 

The “Cheeseburger in Paradise” singer dropped the mic before the Saints took on the Los Angeles Rams for a spot in the Super Bowl. 

"Who drops the mike after the national anthem?" one tweet asked.

"I wish Jimmy Buffett would have dropped the mic before he sang,” another person on social media said. 

 "My life is complete," went one tweet in support of Buffett. "Awesome!"   

As for Buffett he tweeted a picture of his performance and said it was a “wonderful honor.”

Buffett has ties to the city of New Orleans. When he was starting out as a singer and songwriter, he would play in some of the iconic Bourbon Street bars. 

The game was held inside New Orleans' Mercedes-Benz Superdome, and the home team lost 26-23. 

Meanwhile, Gladys Knight is defending her decision to sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl in two weeks. Several stars turned down offers to perform, in solidarity with ostracized quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

"I understand that Mr. Kaepernick is protesting two things, and they are police violence and injustice," the legendary singer said in a statement. "It is unfortunate that our national anthem has been dragged into this debate when the distinctive senses of the national anthem and fighting for justice should each stand alone. I am here to give the anthem back its voice.” 

The Los Angeles Rams will play the New England Patriots on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 3, in Atlanta
