the star spangled banner

its a difficult song to sing.. even for a professional the best rendition i have heard was done by whitney houston, hands down. and she had a military band accompanying her. she also has a most amazing voice, and i bet she practiced.
i did not hear christina's rendition live .. i was watching poirot on pbs... until tonight on youtube. her mistakes were: one: not practicing, practicing, practicing and two, doing it a capella. even whitney didn't try THAT.
i dont know how the sound system sounded at the stadium, but it sounded like crap over the telly - even the half time show. someone doesn't know how to mix.
and that is my opinion

No, problem #1 is the singer's apparent, uncontrollable need to produce a 'new' or 'better' version of the song.
