She sounds bad even though she carries the melody and hits all the notes.

Imo, Beyonce sounds hoarse and very "breathy" when she sang the national anthem live today. I can't stand these black singers who think they have to make everything sound like it is coming from a black gospel choir with all the improvising or whatever you call it when they drag out notes or change what should be one note into several or more.

When the blacks take over a song like the national anthem and sing it like Beyonce does, why isn't she called a racist? If a white person did that, the blacks would be the first to be crying about it.

Charges of discrimination are being raised regarding some of the commercials being featured at the Super Bowl so why not charge Beyonce with racism for her black rendition of the national anthem, "The Star Spangled Banner."

Why have any one person sing this?

I think it would be good to have the TWO COMPETING TEAMS sing it as in a choir!

The Super Bowl celebrates a national pasttime, football and so it is very unfair for any one star or person, such as Beyonce, to capitalize on it and further enrich herself.

Another idea would be just to have the audience sing it and eliminate the "star" factor altogether.

Did you see how Beyonce was trying to be oh so coy and implied she'd have a big announcement when someone asked her when she'd be going on tour again or giving another concert?

So sick of Beyonce and her sickening costumes. She has to insert sex into everything she does and it is high time for the pendulum to swing the opposite way. Her time is up. We've heard too much of her and seen way too much of her and her mother and those hideous costumes.

And you are as CHEESY as BEYONCE! P.U! Limburger smells better.

But with a name like Didi, it is understandable that your reading comprehension is so low.

Don't be surprised if Beyonce misses a few notes at the game!

How slimey to go before reporters and justify your lip-synching by saying "everyone does it." If that is the case, it is only fair, right and honest for the performer(s) to clearly announce that beforehand.

Anyone who has been to the theatre knows that whenever an understudy is playing a role, it is clearly announced beforehand.

Why should any other performance be different?

If the criticism of her hadn't been put out by the media, she NEVER would have admitted she wasn't singing live at the Inauguration of the most hypocritical liar ever to disgrace the USA. No wonder he chose her.
