The first round of the 2022 NFL draft is finally underway, but the festivities didn't begin there.

Shortly before the draft officially started, Kodi Lee performed the national anthem in front of a huge crowd in Las Vegas. With the draft stage sitting over the Bellagio Fountain, it created an incredible scene.

Here's how fans reacted.

"That national anthem was awesome #NFLDraft," one fan said. "Look up Kodi Lee’s story if you haven’t seen it yet! Amazing."

"When you hear that National Anthem… you want to run through a damn wall," said another fan.

"Its rare that someone singing the national anthem gets your attention but wow kodi lee crushed it! well done!!!" said another fan.

It certainly seems like the fans loved Kodi Lee's rendition of the anthem.

Up next, the draft.
