    Better than most but ….. Why can’t someone just be respectful and sing the song as it is written without having to add all their personal modifications to it??

    tell us all, oh wise one, how exactly is it written? and for that matter, who gave you exclusive right to determine how our national anthem should be sung! in any case, the majority disagree with you. Kelly was perfect.

    DiatribesAndOvations Says:

    I’m a long-time fan and I think she did a fantastic job. I was worried that she might try to “make it her own” but she had the good sense to know that Francis Scott Key pretty much knew what he was doing.

    Salli Says:

    OMG. She is ugly as Hell. She is fat, pale, and just ugly and you know it. Where th eff was Jennifer Huson, hell JHo woulld have done a better job. Whoa she needs to hit the gym.

    Salli Says:

    come on now, let’s see a photo of your great and wonderful perfect body. you won’t because you are really just an overweight troll who is jealous of what Kelly. jealous that this girl makes more money in one month than you ever will in a lifetime. jealous of the people in powerful positions that she has access to and you never will.

  55. 55
    Karen Says:

    Now, THAT is how the National Anthem should be done! Kelly Clarkson was the perfect choice! Wonderful! That’s a very difficult song to sing, and Kelly made it look effortless. She nailed it!

  56. 56
    James Says:

    horrible. she cant sing. and people who change the way its supposed to be sung just really ruins the anthem.

  57. 57
    theresa Says:

    to James

    another troll who thinks that he should be allowed to choose how our national anthem is supposed to be sung. why don’t you show us how well you sing. or wait, you don’t know how.

  58. 58
    Sam Says:

    She did ok but Whitney Houston and Carrie Underwood are the winners in singing the anthem. What happened to Kelly? She used to be cute but now she is almost ugly. She will probably be another pop/rock artist that goes country–LOL. I hope not because I like the pop/rock Kelly better than any pop/rock female artist.

    You have written some of the most ignorant comments I have ever read. I am embarrassed for you-because you obviously don’t have the sense to be embarrassed yourself.@Salli: a href=”/2012/02/05/kelly-clarkson-super-bowl-national-anthem/comment-page-3/#comment-20450848″>Salli:

    @M Martell:
    Whitney do an amazing job but in my opinion Kelly was the best yet. :)

  62. 62
    car Says:

    If Kelly was horrible how come she won the first season of Idol, gets praises from legends like Jeff Beck, Steven Tyler, Reba, people ask to sing to duets with her, sang for the Pope and the President. She didn’t change the anthem, sounded great and the whole world loved her performance expect for a few trolls like yourself.

  63. 63
    car Says:

    @Sam: Kelly was more than okay, she was amazing and the whole worlds knows it and has gotten praises from practically everybody. She was just as good as Whitney, Carrie did do a great job but Kelly was better. Nothing has happen to Kelly, she is still kicking butt like always. She is not almost ugly, she is still cute. Kelly will not be one of those pop artists that will go country. She has said that she will always make pop music because you can do so much more with pop. :)

    Stef Says:

    Suck it up and tell the truth. You just don’t like Kelly Clarkson because she puts your favorite to shame. No one believes she’s your favorite Pop/rock female when you write the things you wrote about her.
