    2012 Super Bowl National Anthem and America the Beautiful

    Saw this article and listened to NA and ATB. Just wondering what your thoughts are on the NA and ATB performances? Was Kelly's NA real simple? Were Blake and Miranda "petrified"?

    Kelly sang the anthem beautifully. I like that she kept it simple. She knew the lyrics, too, which is always a plus lol.
    Miranda and Blake did a lovely job with ATB. They did look a little scared, but certainly not petrified. They represented country music well. I thought them holding hands was very cute as well. They've been through a lot lately, and I hope this just signals the beginning of better times for them in the rest of 2012.
    Both performances were simple and respectful, and I hope Americans are proud to have their country honored in such a way.

    Kelly KILLED it, she sang it the way it is suppose to be sung.

    Blake & Miranda looked more nervous than scared.

    Well, if I didn't like it I certainly couldn't say so. Opinions are simply not welcome.
    Platitudes only please.
    But I did like it. So I hope that doesn't offend anyone.

    I think all involved did a good job. I liked Kelly's version of our NA, but I like Carrie's better. That being said, the pressure of performing at the super bowl has to be incredibly stressful. I also liked Madonna's performance. The time and effort expended to put that together had to be enormous. Also, great commercials.

    Kelly did a good job of singing the Anthem. She did it right---but it is meant to be sung without ANY vocal additions at all. My Grandmother was a music teacher and she liked Kelly's version also but she said even though Blake and Miranda sounded ok and on key that America The Beautiful should always be sung solo, by a group or a chorus to get the full, wonderful effect of the song--and I agree with her.

    Kelly did AI and herself very proud.... She is a great Talent that steped up to the plate and delivered a knockout performance! Blake and Miranda got into there comfort zone when they harmonized together... I thought they represented Country music very well indeed!!!


    PS- Carries version of the NA is amazing because her voice is the only instrument.... Not many people even try that in that super charged atmosphere and who can blame them... LOL

    Patrick, opinions are welcome, and you know it. How dare someone call you out on your constant negativity toward other artists . However, if all you want to offer now is nice comments about other artists...got for it .

    Not sure what that comment means. Opinions are always welcome. Opinions are always contradicted though, .

    I always feel like I have to be particularly careful.
    But thats ok.
    I have big shoulders I can take it.
    I thought it was smart to have the childrens choir. It kept things controlled and still had that element of accepella.
    Everyone I have asked really liked it as well.

    I thought that Kelly did amazing! The choir behind her was a nice touch and made it sound nice without being trashy. And I though that Blake and Miranda did amazing! They did look scared, but who wouldn't be? It was super cute that they were holding hands too.
