in retrospect she ain't that bad ya know!
Agreed! It's a long drawn out 15 minute Anthem and that's where Christina made her mistake. She tried to stylize too much by drawing out her notes. She was also off pitch quite a bit as were the Black Eyed Peas. Fail......It's no big deal. BUT, the problem is every time someone sings the national anthem at the Super Bowl, they try to put their personal stamp on it. I'm not saying they should all sound the same, but a national anthem should be sung the same way the people sing it, IMO.
Indeed. I don't need or want to hear all the "warbling" or "stylized" versions, thank you very much...
That's kind of what I was thinking. Leave the singing of the National Anthem to those that have the deep respect and understanding of it's meaning.At some point it has become part of the entertainment.
It's not entertainment.
Maybe they should stop using it to open up games anyway?
2005 they had the combined choirs of the US Militart Academy, Naval Academy and Coast Guard Academy do the Anthem. It was beatiful AND they knew the lyrics.
It was doomed from the beginning....they have a latino broad singing and her first words are "Jose can you see".
I see your point -- I've had quite a few jobs in my day and have made some errors on occasion. Of course I do always strive for top quality and perfection, but yes -- some typos do slip by, and I do have to re-record segments if something isn't perfect.I love how everyone jumps on someone who made a mistake. Have you all NEVER made a mistake? I bet in your job, you have screwed up once or twice. And to think, you are a profesional, that should never happen.
++100...That woman is an incredible songtress. She went off tract a bit. So what!!. I dare say that not a single one of you could sing it even in your shower let alone before millions. She made her apology and did it with grace. Gezzz even the guy that swore in the President messed up the words. Stuff happens. So all of you live in glass houses eh? I seriously doubt she made the mistake on purpose.I love how everyone jumps on someone who made a mistake. Have you all NEVER made a mistake? I bet in your job, you have screwed up once or twice. And to think, you are a profesional, that should never happen. Come on, **** happens, and even to the anthem. Yes, she probably stylized it too much and that threw her off. Do you think she doesn't know the words? I bet she does. Does it mean that it means nothing to her? **** no. She screwed up. Jump off you high horse and give reality a try. You may be perfect up on your perch, but down on the ground with the rest of us, you all "f" up from time to time as well.
Sing it right or don't sing it at all? Seriously? You think she sat down before she went out and said, "How cool would it be to sing a line twice?" I guess the anthem should NEVER be sung again, just in case they mess it up. Because just like rivers flow to the ocean, someone will mess it up again....
