One things I never got,during my time in America is how the anthem is treated.

You get rnb singers and other pop stars,to basically give their own rendition of the song. A national anthem does not exist,so Beyonce etc can show off how long them can hold a note.

Its supposed to be sung professionally and and with dignity. In the end of the day its a song about battle!

Singing it like a Toni Braxton love ballad is just stupid. It used to irritate me and im not even American!

Remember watching this with my brother live, thought it was cool and funny actually. Didn't expect a lot of people to go all emotional and sissy over it. Far more entertaining than the typical prostitute desperately showing fake emotions as she screams for you to mute the TV.

On a professional level(before boxing fights), I personally believe the Anthems are represented perfect in Germany.

how many Olympians dream of one day standing on the podium, watching their flag lifted up and listen to their anthem play while they wear the Gold. Maybe not on ESB apparently, but there ARE patriotic people in this world
