The 16-year-old drew rave reviews from fans on Twitter for her performance in the rain  at Metlife Stadium in the Meadowlands.

“(Jacquie Lee) just belted out the best national anthem of the year here at MetLife. Unbelievable!” tweeted Ed Valentine. Valentine runs the Giants fan site BigBlueView.com. “Nice National Anthem,” tweeted Gannet New Jersey sports columnist Steve Edelson.

Fans at the stadium loudly cheered her performance, especially when she successfully hit the most challenging “rockets’ red glare” high note in her traditional rendition of the anthem.

Some fans expressed disappointment online that her performance was not shown on Fox’s broadcast of the game. Regular season NFL games rarely include the National Anthem performance.

After posting a picture of herself with actress Kate Mara, the great-granddaughter of Giants founder Timothy Mara and the niece of current Giants CEO John Mara, Lee flew back to Califorrnia for the Tournament of Roses Parade on Wednesday. She’ll join winner Tessanne Chin and third place performer Will Champlin on a float decorated with red, orange and yellow roses for the annual New Year’s Day parade.

Then it will be back to class for the high school junior, at the Ranney School in Tinton Falls on Monday, January 6. Lee kept up with her school work with tutors backstage as she competed on “The Voice” during the fall.
