Quote from: kindofdoon on February 06, 2011, 11:29:30 PM[rant]I'm not opposed to improvisation, but all these modern reinventions of The National Anthem just feel like exercises in diva-ism and ego to me. It should be sung as it was written.[/rant]
Quote from: Arkillian on February 07, 2011, 02:37:43 AMI just realised that I don't know the lyrics to the American anthem. Where did she screw up? O.o
Quote from: Lambonius on February 07, 2011, 07:38:59 AMI completely believe her when she said in her statement that she has sung the song all her life and didn't even realize her mistake until later.
Quote from: Lambonius on February 07, 2011, 07:38:59 AMAnd as for her singing style--I'm no huge Christina Aguilera fan, but I do know that one of her main claims to fame as a singer is her ability at vocal acrobatics, so I'm not sure what people were expecting.
Quote from: Lambonius on February 07, 2011, 07:38:59 AMHonestly, I felt like her embellishments were pretty tastefully done here and only added to the emotional impact of the song. People are only harping on about it because they are trying to find any reasons they can to make her look stupid because of the lyrical mistake.
Quote from: snabbott on February 07, 2011, 08:25:08 AMAlso, Arkillian is excused from knowing the words, since she's not American. I certainly don't know the New Zealand national anthem (or if they even have one for that matter)!
