Jordin Sparks Sings The National Anthem

Jordin Sparks Sings The National Anthem

American Idol champ Jordin Sparks (in Dolce & Gabbana) performs “The Star-Spangled Banner (National Anthem)” during the pre-game show prior to the start of Super Bowl XLII on Sunday at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

Jordin is the daughter of ex-Giant player Phillippi Sparks and must have joined in on the celebration as the Giants completed an exciting win over the New England Patriots!

When asked what she thought of her performance, Jordin said she was a “very, very, very happy” girl.

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Jordin’s performance?

She totally lip synched.
if you pay attention close enough she gets kinda late on the cut offs of her words.
even when i watched this on tv me and my aunt said that she was totally lip synching.
but i still love jordin

I heard she lip-synched? Does anyone sing live anymore?

And Paula was one notch above Britney’s performance – and that is not a good thing. I miss the 80s Paula who could thrill you with her choreography. She didnt do anything – not even sing- another mediocre lipsynching performance.

Very nice!

Dumb clip of planes passing by at the end. LOL

She did a really good job!

She was lip synching.

i thought it was pretty bland and generic considering it was lipsynched.

but bland and generic is what american idol is all about so what can you expect.

she did an amazing job so many of those performances are awful (ashlee simpson kelly clakrson) but she was wonderful!!

Lip syncing or not, she has an amazing voice. I don’t usually like for people to ad-lib and add differnt dynamics when singing the National Anthem, but she did a good job. Good for her!

she didn’t lip sync people! i know. yes, it was pro tooled to make her pitch perfect but it was most certainly live. just not, authentic and raw.

she has killer vocals anyway, so if she were ever to lip sync no one could say she can’t sing.

Hi Nando. The planes were for our guys/gals in the military. This Super Bowl was dedicated to all our men and women in the military.

lipsyncher….but more bearable then abdul’s mess.

Definitely not lip synching. There’s no way, she was jittery and nervous leading up to it all week, and the vocals were right on. She really is that good. I thought it was AMAZING!

Hey B I T C H What mess are you talking about?. Paula did a great job. IDIOT.

She was trying to do the Whitney Houston version and well….

Also I don’t think she was lipsynching because there is always a delay when you sing in a stadium. Even when you speak it takes time for your words to travel up to the crowd. It’s about a one second delay so you’lll see her mouth the words but won’t hear it till1-2 seconds after.

She seems like a lovely girl.

Great vocals. Wonderful. Lip synch or not, it is her voice.

she WAS lip syncing.. itunes had the version available 5 mins after her performance and guess what??? NO crowd noises…. go figure!

It was good, nothing spectacular though. It didnt blow me away. Go watch Carrie Underwood sing the National Anthem, you will have goosebumps.

lip, tits…whatever,
hmmm….someone must be having a bad day to start calling fellow posters names. sorry your life is so sh*tty! it must suck to be you!

p.s. PAULA SUCKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!
but what can you expect from a has-been pill-popping mental case who’s face is pulled too tight for it to function properly??? you must identify with her. sigh.

Dumb B I T C H #23. I’m not going to waste my time even talking to you. You’re a low life scum. Do me a favor and hop across the road in busy traffic, OR GO PLAY WITH SOME ONE ELSE.

even though it’s not my own home anthem i can still appreciate it is a really inspiring one and when the right person sings it, it gives you chills. i really like jordin, she has a fab voice.
