Well, in case you missed it, here’s Carrie singing the National Anthem at the Superbowl today:
As I had hoped, Carrie DID sing it LIVE…not to mention the fact that she sang it ACAPELLA as well! That was first time the National Anthem was sung LIVE at the Superbowl in MANY years. Glad Carrie did it!
I will admit that her performance wasn’t perfect tho…and I have heard her sing it PERFECTLY many times. That last note was a bit off…BUT you know that it was only because of all the noise of the crowd…I bet she couldn’t even hear herself once everyone started cheering at the end. The rest of it was quite awesome…she really belted it! It being acapella made it even more impressive! I was a bit disappointed she didn’t do her falsetto high note towards the end tho…she ended up doing it as a “money note” instead…which for this occasion probably matched better. I just loved that she had the guts (unlike most artists) to actually tackle (excuse the pun) this tough song acapella in a venue/atmosphere where others wouldn’t attempt to sing it live.
On another note…not sure if I really liked that outfit…or her hair. But I guess it did match the whole “sport” theme, and she did look pretty glam…
*UPDATED – Carrie posted on her official fan club page about her Superbowl experience (including her reaction to watching back her performance ):
Just watched the anthem back…sounded much better in my head…lol! Oh well, at least people know it wasn’t pre-recorded…but I now understand why someone would! hugs and kisses! We’ll get ‘em next time!
At least she has a good sense of humor about the whole thing!
