I don't know if y'all saw the national anthem for tonights world series game and I don't even know who was singing it. But she might as well have just burned the flag. Here's a suggestion: sing the notes that Francis Scott Key wrote. It is our national anthem, not an opportunity for you to embellish, alter, and ruin an incredibly special song. Honestly, that was just pure disrespect to the country I love.
Was it worse than Rosanne Barr?..
Are they "actually" still playing baseball?
It was Debbie Laboto (sp?) I think. She is an X Factor judge right now..
If I could upvote this a 1000 times I would. Nothing gets under my skin more than when some nobody singer or whoever comes in and abuses the words to that beloved song.
Nobody has did it better than Whitney.
She got one upped by the 7th inning 'God Bless America'
It was face cringe worthy listening to that horrible quartet sing. They botched the start. One of the guys sung the wrong words. They were off pitch. It was awful!
Do you mean Demi Lovato? IDK, I wasn't watching.
try this IT is much better plus there all military vets.

She hates America like all liiiibruuuls.
Yes, she got some words confused initially. But , she did fine after that. I'm not a fan of pop/motown/R&B, so I didn't care for it, but it was hardly offensive.
Lighten Up Francis!
It was for sure Demi Lovato
abusing the words is bad enough. butchering, embellishing and otherwise crapping on the notes is worse though. i just do not care to hear it "jazzed up" or sung by pop singers. The guy who does God Bless America at Braves games is awesome. He is with the Atlanta Symphony Chorus. Tremendous.
Phillip Phillips did a good job the other day I thought.
Jordin Sparks does the best at singing national anthem IMO. Every now and then ill watch it on YouTube and it fires me up. Check it out.
