Another Fox star just mangled the National Anthem before a World Series game. It occurs to me we’re in Detroit, a great music town. Did anyone ask Smokey Robinson to sing the Anthem? Or how about Diana Ross? Or Stevie Wonder? I’m just saying.

    I really hate the usual cop outs given to this “they’re artists… just expressing themselves… making the performance their own…” Let’s get one thing straight, the National Anthem is not now, nor will it ever be, theirs. Sing it as it stands and realize that you’re nothing more than a vehicle to pay homage to the song and the nation it represents.

    I wondered if I was the only one who thought she butchered it.

    An X Factor star… How often do we have to hear that phrase? Dang Cabrera.

    God Bless America sounded pretty bad too.

    I was hoping Marvin Gaye would somehow rise from the dead.

    With all due respect to our military, tonight’s God Bless America was the most awful, off-key rendition I’ve ever heard. I doubt Fox chose that Air Force quartet, but it did remind me of a bad American Idol audition.

    I agree with David. Butchered it.

    I recall in SF, we had Jose Feliciano sing the national anthem, with his guitar. It was a beautiful rendition.

    Jose did not mangle it, nor change anything. He just sang it and played the guitar the way it was supposed to be.

    I watched that National anthem in shock. In a city that is 90% African American, which is home to some of the most talented singers on the planet, it was a disgrace to roll out an imported white girl who totally screwed it up. Shame on Fox and MLB!!!!
