MNF: Star Spangled Banner

I figured this was off topic because it wasn't pertaining to football, just the performance.

This chick (Who I'm sure 9/10 of you haven't heard of) sang the Star Spangled Banner last night at the Cowboys/Eagles game because of the NFL celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month and has pretty much caught all kinds of hell for sucking. (Cowboys fans booed her but then again, we're talking about Cowboys fans)

Wanted to know what you guys thought if you saw it, was she bad? Was she disrespecting the song? Granted, her singing was off in places but I in no way thought she deserved to be booed...

Here's the youtube for those who didn't catch it.

OMG, I can't listen anymore. My stomach can't handle the horror. Don't they do test runs before putting these people on the stage?

She has ONE song that was semi-popular.. Last summer I believe. Pop sensation is NOT the right word used to describe her. More like pop, "flash in the pan". She hasn't had a hit song since then.

I'm sure they could've found a far more suitable Hispanic person to sing...

Re: MNF: Star Spangled Banner

Yeah she butchered it and I mentioned it during another thread... I was on the WP also, and thought about bringing it up, but since no one else did I backed off and went to bed early...

IT was nothing short of abysmal... but do you boo in that instance? Probably because while shes murdering our national anthem she's trying to give the camera all these retarded fucking sultry looks... I mean that's patriotic right??? Sexing up the camera while you slaughter a song that represents your country?

I thought it was absolutely gut wrenching. I watched a college game the other day and they had this guy singing it and he paused at the beginning when he got his first taste of stadium feedback, and was humble and nervous and completely brought the house down.. it was awesome. I think he was military... it may have been the thursday night NC Rutgers game...

This was the exact opposite, but covered in bile and dog shit.

Re: MNF: Star Spangled Banner

it was horrible. no need to add anything to an already beautiful song. just sing it like it was written. and her voice was really off key, too

Re: MNF: Star Spangled Banner

She totally deserved to be booed. Her performance showed she was only interested in showcasing her own talent and not delivering the song with the reverence and respect it deserves. The anthem's words and melody stands on its own and is one of the few songs that sounds worse the more you try to jazz it up.

If you're going to go with the "I'm over-the-top and changing pitch like crazy because I want to show off" theme, make sure you can actually sing. She was horrible.

Exactly!
That was bad but not Carl Lewis bad.

She is a D-List version of Christina Aquilera.

Yeah, some people can pull it off but she just wasnt. The ending was really bad and her voice kinda screeched.

Re: MNF: Star Spangled Banner

i dont think bad or awful are strong enough words to describe how horrendous her version of the Star Spangled Banner was...the boo's were well deserving
