At the MLB All-Star Game on July 15, Broadway star Idina Menzel, 43, wowed the crowd at Target Field in Minneapolis with a cover of Bob Dylan‘s “Forever Young,” as well as with a gorgeous rendition of the US National Anthem. Check out both performances right here!

Possibly nothing is more nerve-wracking than singing the National Anthem at a sporting event — performances are closely scrutinized and often roundly criticized. Remember when Christina Aguilera forgot the words at the 2011 Super Bowl? Yikes. Who can forget?

Anyway, it’s no surprise that the Tony Award winner didn’t miss a single note. Both performances were beautiful and perfectly nuanced, and Idina looked gorgeous at the same time, of course. Wearing a white blazer over a black shirt and black pants and with her long, dark hair in a high ponytail and her minimal makeup enhanced by a light smokey eye, she looked as classy as ever.

It’s a good thing that Idina dressed modestly for her performances at the MLB All-Star Game — remember when her “real” boobs accidentally fell out of her dress at the Radio City Music Hall in June as she sang “Take Me Or Leave Me” from Rent? “Well, f*** it, they’re real!” she mused at the time. Indeed they are, Idina. Indeed they are.
