There were some mixed reactions to the performance.

Jimmy Buffet sounds and looks like a drunk dad wandered down to the field and started singing. #JimmyBuffet #NFL

Some people thought the singer might've been an impostor.

We sure that’s Jimmy Buffett and not just some guy?

Others honestly respected Jimmy for just going for it.

after all the years of hearing people perfectly sing the national anthem, i’m ready for more performances like jimmy buffet. bring in danny devito for the super bowl. america is ready.

Truly an icon!

Great job by Jimmy Buffet reciting the National Anthem there

What an inspirational National Anthem from Jimmy Buffett… his message is clear: "Anyone… literally anyone… can sing the Star Spangled Banner as long as you know the words."

It took some people back to Fergie's botched national anthem performance at the 2018 NBA All-Star Game.

Oh, and he ended the iconic performance with a mic drop.

Never in my life did I think I’d see a Jimmy Buffett mic drop. #LARvsNO
