Shouldn't they have auditions?
I'd guess she was loaded/drunk. That was HORRIBLE!!
LBlack14 I think she was more interested in the lines by her credit card than those of the song.
You have to be shitfaced to even want to watch an NBA all star game let alone the pre game anthem

Took the words right outa my mouth. Nor a fan of NBA or whatshername. She ruined one of my fav tunes.
I didn't watch. Didn't even know it was on. Was told to check out her anthem on YouTube after the fact. I used to watch it when the players cared.
I heard so much talk about how bad it was that when I finally listened to it I was disappointed. I thought it was going to be worse. 🙂
I had to chuckle particularly when they showed some of the players faces but most of us could beat it up worse with a few exceptions.
She tried to be jazzy, but she isn't.
It was pretty bad, and disrespectful. It's a national anthem, not a torch song. Her movements were even weird, again like she was singing a love song or something. When will these people learn?
Woof. That was pretty awful
It was the worst version by an otherwise decent vocalist that I've heard. I guess she was trying to fit the anthem to her style, but it didn't work.
Didn't tune in. I'll take your guys' word that it wasn't good.
Doesn't surprise me. Give me Whitney Houston's version, some 27 years ago. She set the standard.
PA-PLAYA I didn't hear it live, it was all over the radio yesterday.
I agree on Whitney. I bought the itunes version for my phone and listen to it often.
Whitney Houston - THAT's how it's done.
Whitney's version is very good. Clean and respectful.
I have always been partial to Faith Hill's Superbowl version:
That was pretty bad,but at least she didn't do this...this time!

Maybe check the backside. 😣
Looks the same!🙃
Why can't people just sing the song like it was written and not add their own artistic twist to it?
Rickochet Yep. I'm tired of singers making the performance about them.
I guess that's why I've always referred to Whitney's rendition. Beautiful voice, beautiful song, beautifully done.
Man, she had some vocals.... one of my favs.
