I loath Jerry and I'm sure he at least had Veto power over the choice. But George Strait is not going to add as many non football fans as a pop singer will.

So you think non-fans tuned in just to hear her sing the anthem?

She can't sing to begin with and the National Anthem is an extremely hard song to sing. If you want to dress the dramatic parts of the song up a little bit it doesn't bother me but at least know the freakin words.
Ever hear of rehearsing?

Are we talking about the same girl?? Christina Aguillera has some AMAZING pipes and is ten times the "singer" of people in her "career demographic".

I agree with JD. Andrea Bocelli doesn't pick people to sing with that are not up to snuff.

Yes. They don't sell it as only her singing the anthem, they say performances by ..... and she is included in that list and that is a big reason that non-fans tune in, that and the commercials.

Sorry guys, I don't think she's that great. True shes better then most in her field but that's not saying much.

Yeah, I have that album, and you're right about Bocelli. And no doubt Aguilera can sing. She just shouldn't be allowed to massacre the national anthem.

That's cool. She isn't your cup of tea. But a gal that can hit these notes, in concert, without the aid of studio editing is impressive.


But I can understand if it's not your style.
