Stalin and Mao forbid any modifications to the official state songs. Adding individualism would defeat their message of collective communism for the people.
Sad to see we have so many hardcore statists attacking a barely-relevant singer.
Are you familiar with Mao's famous quote as to ________being the Opiate of the People

Sadly, the masses opiate is the obscene low brow Super Bowl, an object of worship for them. This is not American individualism, but the decline of a great society

Just another disrespectful pig. Songs are for creative endeavors, anthems are for respectful tribute. Next,some second rate citizen will want to sew polka dots on the American flag. How many other countries are observed to allow butchery of their national anthem. Sod a bunch of politically correct pismires, you're either an American or you're not.
Your message is heard loud and clear, Der Commissar! All singers who perform the national anthem with the original words and melody but add vocal flourishes and other unnecessary additions will be arrested and tried for treason against the nation.

As we all know, America stands for the rigid uniformity, political correctness, and worship of government that you espouse. Individualism, freedom and unorthodoxy are for terrorists.

True the American people do value individualism and innovation but when a music artist is more concerned about how many runs she has in the National Anthem or notes she can fit in one syllable in the National Anthem, that's where people have a problem. Sure you can have a little artistic freedom but the National Anthem was written by Mr. Key as a reverent poem declaring the beauty of the fight for freedom.

And for JWT -

Mr. Key is Francis Scott Key and the poem was written in 1814 during the Battle of 1812 at the Battle of Fort McHenry.

Oh calm down. I bet if I put you on the spot in front of millions of people, and asked you to sing it, you'd be lucky to get all the words right. Frankly, I can't blame her for missing some words, since the words are dated and difficult for anyone to remember. I mean, really, do you know what a "rampart" is, or why we "watched" them? "At the twilight's last gleaming"?????????? 9 out of 10 Americans wouldn't get the words right, and 49 out of 50 couldn't tell you the meaning of the words.
Uhh, is she not a professional singer? Uhh, does she not make millions of dollars a year singing songs?

Uhh, is she not human, and therefore will make mistakes? Uhh, are you totally cold-hearted that you can't forgive someone else's mistake? Uhh, in the grand scheme of things, is this REALLY that important?

Next time you're at any game, see how many of the fans sing the anthem, so that you can hear them, and see how many get it right. The percentage is in the low single-digits. Most of those complaing on this thread fall into that category.
