    ....That's what happens when you try to make the National Anthem into a pop song....just doesn't turn out right. Everyone's busy trying to "compete" with the way Whitney Houston did it all those years ago. But I think what alot of these "pop starlets" fail to understand or see is, Whitney actually sang it from the heart, so the result was just NATURALLY as it was...GREAT. You CAN'T compete with that. That's why most/all who have sang the National Anthem after Whitney with the mentality that they want to "compare" the outcome or outdo the outcome to Whitney's DON'T have the same result, because it's contrived and NOT natural. I say sing the darn song as it's meant to be sung, and if emotion should take over (genuinely) it will sound more convincing and yes maybe comparable to how Whitney sung it....all those years ago.

    What a disgrace and abomination of our "National Anthem". She screeched and screamed her way through it and forgot the words.Just because Christina is a celebrity don't mean she can perform. Very disappointed. I'm sure the young lady from Glee could have done a wonderful rendition. Next year why not try and ask someone to sing the Anthem who will do a performance that the country can be proud of. No respect!

    Well, if she's been singing it since she was 7, she should go back and re-learn the words. And--the educational system should go back to making sure ALL students learn the Pledge of Allegiance and THE WORDS to the National Anthem and to forget the yodeling.

    Just watched Christina Aguilera sing the National Anthem. Well, it used to be a pretty song, that is until she sang it. She did terrible with all the ups and down. Either sing the notes, or don't do it at all.

    So sad......

    @Alex: It's better to OVER sing than to UNDER sing like most other pop stars do these days. Christina Aguilera has the best female voice in pop by far. It's refreshing to see a female pop star who can really sing for a change.

    She's a good singer.. But no doubt she's gonna over-sing the anthem just like she over-sings everything else..

    Surprised this wasn't mentioned in the article...Christina Aguilera is a Pittsburgh girl! While she was born in NY State, she lived in the Pittsburgh area from age 7.
