    Default National Anthem

    Good performance by Christina or overdone? Either way, the girl's got some pipes. The over/under for for "Brave" was 6 seconds so for all of you that took the over, good job!

    She messed up and sang the wrong words at one point.

    I thought she did, but I wasn't paying close enough attention to say for sure.

    You should have been standing with your hand on your heart like the rest of us. She pooched it, left out an entire verse.

    First time I have NOT got all misty hearing it, in a LONG time.

    When will these "performers" learn it's not a concert and not all about them?

    Was it necessary for her to say, "Thank you," after she finished? I appreciate her as an entertainer, but that was pathetic.

    This is what happens when a performer is more interested in the sound of their voice than the actual song being performed.

    The most successful singers don't mess with this song, they sing it the way it was originally written.

    It was awful.
    What happened to vocalists havibg some soul and styling in their voices.
    Nowadays it is nothing but how powerful your voice is..
    Example.. Jenifer Hudson.

    Agreed. I really like Christina's voice, but I hate when people screw with the pitch so much.

    Wasn't impressed.

    Exactly, my big ass gets tears every time ...but hearing her butcher not only the lyrics but the presentation as well was horrible.

    Elmer Fudd could have done it better. These folks need to quit messing with our song. Show some R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

    She is batting a big fat 0-17 on her "performance".
    Please. Please contact me a ben62670 @ yahoo.com. Make sure to include who you are, and you are from Polk so I don't delete your email. Also I am now physically unable to work on any projects. If you need help let these guys know. There are many people who will help if you let them know where you are.
    Thanks

    Awful, just awful.

    Very tired of the vocal gymnastic exercises in place of the SSB. It's a disrespectful display of self-indulgent idiocy.

    Bluntly, Aguilera blew the lyrics, sounded horrible, and looked like a cheap hooker.

    On the other hand, the Packers rocked.
