I made it to 51 sec. and I'm ashamed of myself. For lasting that long.

There should be a law. Like desecrating the flag kinda thing.

I couldn't make it past the 20 second mark... Originally I stopped at 12, but I wanted to see if I could hold on as long as you....I couldn't.

I got as far as the part where she sounded like a dying cow.

Actually, that might have been a dying cow. Someone should call PETA.

Are you kidding? I was laughing through tears by that point. The stunned looks on the faces in the crowd was hysterical.

I was thinking the same thing. There were some pretty damn priceless looks. Especially the kids standing with the players, some of whom looked torn between giggling and looks of pain and horror.

I fast forwarded through the video...the crowd looks pissed.

It's a stupid song anyway and a ridiculous tradition. When are we as a nation going to actually act like it's the future?
 
2012-07-29 03:46:20 AM
She needs to cut down to less than 3 packs a day.
 
2012-07-29 03:46:51 AM
Ok, I watched it and I hate that girl. It is ok to suck at singing but she was farking Mariah Careying that shiat. Damn her.

You haters just don't get it, do you? It is sheer farking brilliance. Anyone can sing the anthem like everyone else, but it takes a mad genius to take it to this level.

The most wonderful part is she halved the tempo. She made the awesome twice as long.

Watched the video at work and a pro-Soviet Russian immigrant here said the was an embarrassment to this country.

Brutal...just brutal, man. Where's the SNL lip-sync when you need it?

I got all the way to the rockets' red glare, and the amazing "WTF?" looks in the crowd shots, but then again, I've been drinking.

Came to post this, it's easily the best. Love the "I'll make it up to you" part.

Ok Canadian. The Chinese family next door are jonesing to get on some sort of singing thing with their kids. Every day I hear their open window catterwalling. Every farking day. Today I yelled (they do the US anthem for pitch) sing the Canadian Anthem, no Jason Mraz do and some descent shiat.

fark kids need to be carpenters, plumbers, electrictions. Stop thinking you are going to be famous.

Ten seconds was more than enough. Rebecca Black sounds angelic by comparison.

It's not really ok to suck at singing and go out and sing for a big crowd. Get your ass to a music room and practice. It takes effort to get good at any instrument, and a voice is no different. We all start out for shiat, and then through practice we get better.

I think mommy and daddy need to stop telling her how great she is, get her some private lessons with someone who will let her know how her skills really are.

Go practice your craft with some honest feedback, then come back when you don't suck.

Having heard that I have reversed my position concerning auto-tune...and child abuse.

I thought she was going to drop a deuce with that look on her face at the end.

Someone should look to chicago and see how they do the national anthem there...
 
2012-07-29 04:19:22 AM
And we have a new internet challenge to take the place of the now ancient cinnamon challenge! Challenge your friends to see how far they can go without muting the sound or gouging their ear drums out.
 
2012-07-29 04:19:41 AM
She does have some pipes on her, too bad she's got no real skill at using them. The half or slower tempo made it worse than the supposed singing. I'm guessing she was rushing through it a lot, and her nanny of a coach told her to slow it down a bit., but otherwise PERFECT!
Someone's going to grow up and be a terrible stripper with no sense of timing...

The WTF looks were priceless, as many have noted, worth the effort to post about.

Seems like a talented kid with good pipes who hasn't been taught about things like pitch, melody, rhythm. Possibly as her parents tried to turn her into revenue. Not her fault.

LOL, pitch, melody and rhythm are overrated.

Making the national anthem a showcase for your own abilities is almost always guaranteed to turn out badly. The song is not about you or what you can do. Play it straight, hit the notes you're supposed to hit, and collect your applause. Even Christina Aguilera would have hated that rendition.

/don't sing on my lawn

I don't think her awkward exit after the press conference is helping anything.

This may be the only valid argument for switching to "America the Beautiful" as our national anthem.

I hate singers that oversing - I usually forgive them because mostly they're talented. This girl has no excuse.
 
2012-07-29 05:21:55 AM
eBaum's bursting in air?


to be fair, she didn't know only two words. that puts her head and shoulders above most.
 
2012-07-29 05:25:26 AM
Look, unless you can get a someone who can actually sing, just let a high school or college marching band do it.

I know a radio station in Orlando lets their morning show weed through people American Idol style for singing it at the monster truck show. There are ways to avoid this type of embarrassment.
 
2012-07-29 05:30:00 AM
All this needs is a close up of the clueless stage Mom crying with pride. And yes, it's ok to laugh when someone is so confident and so crappy.

Pretty sure the "fans" section of her website doubles as a sex offenders list.
