Beyonce

Did She Butcher the National Anthem?

Beyonce just sang the national anthem at Barack Obama's Presidential Inauguration -- but the question ... was it the worst performance of her career?

NO. OF COURSE NOT. IT WAS F**KING AWESOME.

You people can be so negative sometimes.

Beyonce did great! But Kelly Clarkson deserves props for singing that tos of thee song, cause I didn't know it had more verses, so props for her not singing "second verse, the same as the first" and singing it again.

Considering she can't sing....I'd say it was a savage butchering.

I can't carry a simple melody. Therefore, I'm the last person to criticize anyone who sings the National Anthem. Singers tell me it's a difficult song and I believe them. It's a beautiful piece of music and Beyonce did it justice. God Bless the USA.

Whitney did it the best!!! Will never be another. Would have loved to see Jen Hudson do it instead of Bey, Jen has a better voice.

So Negative? That is pretty funny coming from a site that promotes/publishes negativity every damn day. Take a look in the mirror. Hilarious.

her voice wasn't as strong as I had expected and her timing seemed off in places. I would have hated to be in the band and trying to keep pace with her
