didn't she do the exact same thing at a pro bowl?????
Everyone has a bad day at the office every now and again.

When she is performing her own songs, she can improvise and no one would notice. The national anthem is a totally different story.

And unless you have experience performing, I don't think you can understand that you can practice something a million times and still forget what you are supposed to do when you are performing. It's hard to believe, but it's true. I have lived it! Not only on stage but in the classroom.

I have personal experience with forgetting the words to our national anthem, and I have performed it thousands of times. Not in front of thousands of people mind you, but in my classroom. For 180 days out of the year, two times a day.

For 20 years...............

And the other day I messed up the words. I’m serious.

And let me tell you, 4 year olds definitely hold a grudge! They won’t let me forget that I botched the words!

That’s the beauty of “live” performances.

Now, personally I didn’t like her rendition of the song at all. I think our anthem should be sung exactly like it was written and not “popped” all over the place. So in that respect, I didn’t like what she did. But forgetting the words? I can forgive her for that.

I don't know about the pro bowl. She's human, Adam, and imperfect, like the rest of us fallible beings.

That's a tough crowd, DonnaMaria.

That's what I meant, her rendition, when I said I didn't like the "way" she sang it. Well-said, DonnaMaria.

i gotta learn your techniques for swaying the argument cause the both of you actually changed my mind and i ain't nearly as down on her as i was, i actually feel a lil sorry for her now, she's prolly depressed as we speak

I believe the technique is officially referred to as "hot chicks telling you what to do".

You changed your mind?? I think that would be classified as a miracle!

Seriously, you are a passionate guy and you stand up for your beliefs and it’s no easy task to change your opinion about something! So I’m thinking it was divine intervention that changed your mind! Bonnie and I had nothing to do with it!

Christina would have done a terrible job imo even if she got the words right, she hangs on at the end of every word and adds all that unnecessary bs...she sang it at the NBA all star game a few years back, one of the most disrespectful renditions I've ever heard

I hear ya. IMO, the National Anthem isn't a chance for you to show off your virtuousity. It's a chance for you to honor your nation.

I always much prefer the simple Antehm sung well with feeling to one that has all kind of trills, vibrato, arpeggiation, improv, etc.
