Aretha Franklin sang a rendition of the National Anthem lasting a whopping four minutes and 35 seconds ahead of the Thanksgiving Day game between the Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings.

And of course people on Twitter had plenty to say about her performance:

The Lions would eventually rally to beat the Vikings. Matt Prater kicked a 40-yard field goal as time expired, handing Detroit a 16-13 win over Minnesota and first place in the NFC North at 7-4. It’s the seventh fourth-quarter comeback win for the Lions this season. The game-winner was set up on Darius Slay’s interception of Minnesota’s Sam Bradford in the final minute. Prater tied the game with a 48-yard field goal with 1:45 to go.
