They should quit hiring people to sing the national anthem and just replay this on the jumbotron every Super Bowl:

It has never been done better than Whitney. Still to this day gives me goosebumps. I love the end when the look on her face tells you that she knows she nailed it.

As long as it's tasteful, I don't care.

Frankly, my favorite part of any rendition is the very end when fans start to clap and scream for the game to get started. And if it's a big game, that's exactly why they are clapping and screaming. It's not so much because they loved the particular treatment the anthem received.

Just what we need. Another over-souled national Anthem.

Yea who needs soul. I prefer no passion whatsoever when I hear the anthem.

Yes, she used a vocal track. And she wasn't the only one, but it was her voice. And had the track screwed up she could have sang it. Ashlee Simpson can't sing.

I don't know why people insist that she didn't sing that live. I imagine it would have been more disjointed if she did use a tract with the orchestra that was playing live.

Has it ever been proven that she used a vocal tract?

Her lips weren't moving while her voice was coming over the speakers. From what I remember, she didn't even have the mic up.

I'd say that's pretty good evidence.
