CNN  — 

Leave it to Maya Rudolph to remix some Beyonce during a commencement speech.

The “Bridesmaids” actress and former “SNL” star concluded her inspiring words to Tulane University students on Saturday with a version of the national anthem that included lyrics from Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” as well as “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.”

Rudolph, the daughter of late R&B singer Minnie Riperton, spoofed Beyonce during her “SNL” days.

Rudolph’s “Star-Spangled Banner” went on for about four minutes and had attendees in stitches.

Tulane’s graduation ceremony was held in the Superdome in New Orleans, also the venue for Beyonce’s Super Bowl halftime show in 2013.
