That was GAWD-AWFUL! Bad decision to have a little girl do a woman's job.

I won't get into the reverse discrimination of having Hispanics ONLY represent the USA.

Next up: Lithuanians.

Yah!
My 88 yr old dad constantly complains that nobody SINGS the Nat Anthm anymore...like a singalong.
I was ready for this as it happens every time we watch a game start. I started to defend her then she got going...and I said....
Never mind......

Last several sports events the Star Spangled Banner was performed, not sung. Some of the high note screeching was a bit much to bear. I think that Hillary is the winner in that department.

What “little girl”? I saw a grown woman with an awful voice (almost as bad as Rosanne) trying to belt out our National Hymn. It was so bad that I looked up from my computer and asked my husband to mute it.

Star Spangled Banner is difficult to sing and some of the people who have tried to sing it end up botching the job horribly. Why not use an instrumental version that is dignified and easy to play? My suggestion is an arrangement of the Star Spangled Banner composed by Felix Vinatieri,band master for Custer's 7th Calvary. A CD with this arrangement is available here

Maybe she’s from the world famous Pittsburgh Opera.

Oh wait...Pittsburgh doesn’t know from opera — but it does have a ballet school.

I think it's time to change the national anthem to something that's more singable.

What about "Yankee Doodle Dandy"? It kind of segues into "Take Me Out To The Ballgame."

Today there was a Nascar race and many football and baseball games. The National Anthem was performed at each one. Could you narrow the choices of folks we should Boo?

It will probably be on line tommorrow. It was the Chicago/Pittsburg NFL Game of 9-22-13. It was pretty bad.

I know the National Anthem is considered hard to sing. My suggestion is for the vocalist to PRACTICE first and then decline the honor if he/she can’t hit the high notes.

If the Cactus Cuties can sing it, anybody could with training.

It really isn’t that hard.
The range is only an octave and a 5th.
If sung in the correct key FOR the Individual singer, it should be a cakewalk.
Most singers who are even mildly competent have a range of at LEAST two octaves.

Two children have the honor every year of singing the Anthem at each of my recitals.

I haven’t had a CLUNKER in 13 YEARS!

What do you have against Lithuanians? If you find one to sing the national anthem, he or she will nail it. Lithuanians take singing seriously.

Why does the NFL have Hispanic Heritage Month?

Why do they not have African-American Heritage Month in the NFL? Heck, why not Anglo-American Heritage Month in the NFL? Why do Hispanics gets this special recognition?

And soon, you’ll have LGBT Heritage Month in the NFL.

The young lady (11-12 maybe) that sang the anthem at the NASCAR race nailed it. A bit slow, but she did an outstanding job.

My vote goes to retain the Star Spangled Banner as our national anthem. It’s so very stirring when played by a good band (or sung well as it occasionally is) and we’ve had it long enough that it’s got a lot of tradition going for it.

I’m as patriotic as the next FReeper, but did we really have to set our national anthem to an English drinking-song tune that virtually no one can sing well because of the unusually large range between the highest and lowest note? Musical expressions of love for country would be so much easier if our national anthem were singable by the general populace, rather than requiring a diva to execute well.
