    Why do Americans feel the need to drat up a national anthem? They`re not meant to be jazzy, or "cool".

    Arrogant for a European to tell other countries what their national anthems should be about.

    She didn`t explain anything. But it doesn`t take a genius to figure out that she just started too high. When you are in front of a bunch of people and not used to it (she`s only 11), your body`s adrenaline kicks in and naturally makes your voice higher. I`ve still heard 11 year olds that would kick her ass in a singing competition, though.

    @Andrew155 - So a European can`t comment on ANY other countries national anthem. Ok for an American to do so, yeah? Way. To. Go!

    Ok, it was not professional quality by any means, but if she was just singing for her family or neighbors, you know everyone would say she was not bad.... honestly, is everyone so bored we have to exaggerate such trivial things?

    Her problem is shes trying way too hard to "sound" like a Christina Aguliara or what have you. She has some vocal talent, but shes misusing it big time.

    @maddux; she`s also a PROFESSIONAL SINGER/SONG WRITER. F**KHOLE.

    no concern for the obama comment. but if you market yourself as a professional; you are adult enough to accept the responsibility (and likelihood) of FAILURE

    still horrible and she should be ashamed for hurting our ears. and fail to the person that gave her the go ahead to put her on the mic, and the parents for not stopping it or preparing this "singer/songwriter" as she claims to be.

    If she had sung it this way (The way it is supposed to be sung) she would have been fine. People there would have given her a break for being an 11 year old. But she had to go and f*ck with the National Anthem. It`s really her parents fault for not telling her that is no no.

    The way people sing the National Anthem is a pet peeve of mine.
    1) Don`t personalize the National Anthem. Its not your song. Save the bullpoo for your own songs.
    2) Don`t ever add, remove, or change any of the words.
    3) No vibrato. If you suck at singing and don`t know how to make vibrato subtle, then don`t do it at all. It is not a tool to cover your pooty voice.
    4) Be old enough and wise enough to feel the emotion of the song. We can tell if you feel it or if you are reciting it. Don`t sing it unless you feel it and respect it.

    Tired of celebrities pooting all over our National Anthem.

    If you google the title of this post you`ll find an article with the explanation. There`s even a video of her explaining. I duno why Fancy just posted this video with no link to an article or anything.

    Holy poo people. This video clearly shows that she is capable of singing the national anthem in key. Obviously that is what the people in charge of the sporting event heard when she auditioned, and so they let her sing it at the game.

    The explanation she gives in the interview is that when she got out there, before she started singing, the tones coming out of horns that the crowd was blasting made her lose her note (for people who know nothing about singing: before you start singing a song, you need to get the starting note from an instrument like a piano so you know which key to sing in). By the time she started singing she had no idea what key to sing in and got nervous and messed up.

    A perfectly reasonable explanation. I doubt a single person on this board is capable of singing the national anthem as well as she is (in this ABC video). Not to mention the fact that she is an 11 year old girl for drat sake. The crowd should have joined in and helped her sing instead

    "for people who know nothing about singing: before you start singing a song, you need to get the starting note from an instrument like a piano so you know which key to sing in"

    Not if you`re singing alone you don`t. And anyone who knows more than ONE THING about singing can tell her breathing, meter and dynamics were completely haphazard.

    "Not if you`re singing alone you don`t"
    Wrong. ESPECIALLY if you`re singing alone you need to know what key you`re going to be in. Especially for such a young singer, it would be important for her to at the very least have a pitch pipe before she went onto the field.

    Also: Vibrato is a common tool used in singing to -keep- you on key. It`s unnatural to not have it in a song and is usually only not used in Broadway or other special cases, but agreed it`s supposed to be subtle and faster than the beats you have in the song. What she`s doing though is sliding into notes (ugly imo). Her vowels are terrible, she sounds like a redneck singing, the trilling is stupid and unnecessary and she`s just trying to mimic a technique that she is too young and inexperienced to even try. There are my two cents.

    "Wrong. ESPECIALLY if you`re singing alone you need to know what key you`re going to be in."

    So you`re telling me if someone asked you to sing "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" on your own, you`d have to go fetch a pitch pipe first?
