    Is this the worst Rendition of the National Anthem ever?

    You'd think somebody would have told her she isn't very good.

    Yes, stupid people like that are ruining the anthem. Sing the damn song the way it's supposed to be, it isn't about you.

    Re: Is this the worst Rendition of the National Anthem ever?

    Back when I played HS baseball (and still today at I-Cubs games) me and the rest of my infield would bet money on how long the national anthem would be that game.

    None of us would've been close here.

    Carl Lewis begs to differ.

    But what I heard from this was pretty bad. I turned it off after "what so proudly we hailed"


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    Re: Is this the worst Rendition of the National Anthem ever?

    If you strain a little, I think there might be a good voice hiding in there somewhere. She needs someone to give her lessons and tell her to cut out the theatrics.

    To answer the question, Rosanne's version was worse because it was intentionally bad. This girl at least seems to be sincere.

    Re: Is this the worst Rendition of the National Anthem ever?

    I don't think she is a terrible singer - I think she has "potential" if she works on it. However, the song shouldn't have been nearly 3 minutes and her voice cracked a few times. Can't hit those high or low notes.

    "So will she be going to Hollywood?"

    Sorry, Harper, I'm going to have to say no.

    "Ok, that is one no, she needs these two yes's to advance, CF, what's your call?"

    Re: Is this the worst Rendition of the National Anthem ever?

    I've tried, but I can't bear listening to the whole thing. Three times now after screwing up my courage to listen again, I've clicked the stop button each time.


    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”

    Is this the girl that's 11? I won't rip on a kid. Whoever trained her to sing that song however . . . .
