    Everyone is giving kudos to Idina manzel for recovering from her new year's failure to hit the highs on her hit from frozen. I felt that she was flat on the last note-thoughts?
    I'm referring to her national anthem at the Super Bowl of course-

    I think she was flat on a few notes throughout the performance.

    I appreciate it when they sing the National Anthem without adding all the licks like we're in a Southern Revival church.

    Too slow-self indulgent BS

    Her cadence seemed uneven, but I had the feeling she was being prompted to slow down because the jets were running behind.

    You just described every Super Bowl ever.

    Her tone was flat in certain places and her phrasing was just weird.

    If you hate football, why do you care enough to visit and post in a thread on it? Need some attention? You could take up the guitar.

    She was flat in a few places but I'm happy she sang it live, rather than resorting to lip syncing

    She was definately flat on 11 of the 12 notes.

    I think it's Brady's fault.

    Couldn't agree more, I was ready for vocal acrobatics again and low and behold she actually sang the <gulp> melody. Pretty much. I liked it.

    Didn't sound flat to me, but her cadence was weird. I don't know why people can't just sing it the way it was written.

    I could do just fine without the amateurish warbling.

    I thought this as well. TSSB is not a dirge, yet.
