Submitted by: fancylad 5 years ago in Sports

Some are calling this the worst rendition of a national anthem ever in the history of national anthems. Is it that bad?

Not so much a "Performance" as much as "Slaughter"

Holy crap. People couldn`t even sing along because of an almost random cadence to that. And some of that timbre made me shudder. Hoping that this recording of a recording depreciated the quality. I can tell she had heart, but good lord, so does Barney the purple tyrannosaurus rex, doesn`t justify him.

It is very hard to sing when you can`t hear yourself. I ran audio in the local arena for a few years. Most all of the speakers in a arena do not point tward the field. If they did, there would be too much feed back. With out the proper monitors, she would have a hard time hearing herself...And also she sucks.

For those bashing Roseanne: She never claimed to be a singer. She quickly realized she wasn`t going to be able to perform the song correctly, so she tried to do what she`s good at, comedy. When she spit on the ground afterwards, she was lampooning baseball players. Be mad at whoever hired her to "sing" in the first place.

Good grief. As an act of mercy, they should`ve dragged her off the field with one of those shepherd`s crooks.

My school`s homecoming singer was so bad my freshman year she made it to Time`s worst national anthem list (has since been displaced, though for the love of god I know not why): Here

She may actually have done all right if she sang the song correctly. She went up when you`re supposed to go down and down when you are supposed to go up. The National Anthem is not a song to be f*cked with. I was at a Utah Jazz game in SLC when a Mormon boy band massacred the song. They were so stupid they had added lyrics. It was so bad the crowd was silent at the end.

Ouch. There were a few moments that she was on-key and sounded good, but she is clearly tone deaf and can`t keep it that way haha.

imho it sounds like she was trying too hard to have a deep voice. some parts where she wasnt forcign a deep voice she sounded fine. im guessing someone tried coaching her last minute telling her how they thought she could improve it and totally drated her up

That`s what happens when a kids parents tell them that they are a great singer because that`s what they want to hear, instead of giving them criticism...

Kinda like Rebecca Black...

The SSB needs to be sang/played at around 100 BPM, after all, the tune was a drinking song before they put Key`s poem to it.

To quote an actual composer and educator, Dr. Jack Stamp, "Sing like a musician; not like a singer."

simbha, I disagree. Singing all four verses of the SSB would be a bad idea. The, I believe, third verse is a giant middle finger to our closest ally, Great Britain, and the NAACP would have a field day with it as well.

Not to mention the democrats would complain that the fourth verse is littered with references to a divine being.

She`s just trying to hard to be something she`s not. Just relax and sing - stop thinking about what it should sound like based on TV.

I`m not going to comment on her singing ability. She makes the same mistake, though, that many people make which is to try too hard to sing something "artistically" instead of just singing. It tends to make their singing sound awkward and contrived. Just sing the song!

11-year olds aren`t songwriters. Any song would be horrible tripe about Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus or...who else do kid`s like these days?.....Morgan Freeman.

DromEd: "I made it to "light." And yes it was really that bad and NO she wasn`t trying to sing it right. The first "Oh" takes a second to sing not 3 or 4."

I beat you; I barely made it to the end of `Oh` and I cut it off at `say`. Yes, really. Ugh.

I`m just waiting for us to start singing all four stanzas again - as it`s properly meant to be - and sing the last line of the first stanza as a question.

I mean... it`s the freakin` NATIONAL ANTHEM - and we can`t spend the extra few minutes to sing it all the way through? Such a patriotic country are we.

This poor kid`s been watching too much "American Idol" (which is to say, ANY amount of "American Idol" is too much "American Idol"). It makes you appreciate a rendition like this one even more:

At least she TRIED to sing it properly. Unlike that fat whore Roseanne Barr that purposely sang it wrong and then spit on the ground.

Some one needs to tell that poor girl that she can not sing. Not sure it is as bad as Rosanne`s effort from years back.

I dont want to be mean to a little girl, but it kind of felt like treason just listening to that. How did she get the gig, she has to have some talent. Maybe it was nerves?

I thought it was awful, then felt bad for thinking that because she`s just a kid. I still can`t tell if she`s purposefully making her voice sound like it`s cracking.
