9/16/2008 9:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The only person who can sing the "Star Spangled Banner" like Whitney Houston is Whitney Houston -- and Kat DeLuna is no Whitney.

Wow...if she had just stuck to the singing and not tried to showboat...it may not have been so bad. My ears hurt.

Americans are the only people in the world who will boo their own national anthem.

The hand gestures were not appropriate. We didn't need to hear her running the scales. #5 is correct: Had she just sung the song properly it would've been okay. Her voice is not the problem, it's the inappropriate divatude and grandstanding.

If you can't hit the notes, you can't disguise it with pointing and wiggling.

I heard the awful sound while making dinner in the kitchen, I asked my husband WTF IS THAT!? So I stopped what I was doing to go see who was murdering the National Anthem! It was horrid!!!

The comment above saying we are the only country who will boo our Anthem, its not the Anthem its the person. The song does not need to be jazzed up and show every single note you can sing unless you are Whitney Houston or Christina Aquilera, I mean seriously not many people can use their voice like that and make it sound good. Im sad that she even did that, heck I don't even know who she is but she killed it!

Our country's natioal anthem was written during a time of war and should be sung with respect and reflection. This young lady has a wonderful voice, but the types of hand gestures and over the top runs does not belong with a performance of this song.

What sucked about it, for the most part, were the hand gestures and the pretentious way she carried herself. And the vocal riffs didn't even make sense - she was just trying to do vocal gymnastics for the sake of doing them. It took away from the song. This girl has a good singing voice, she just has some growing up to do and also needs pointers on stage presence.
