Now lets see if the winners of The Voice, XFactor and the other talent shows produce a winner that will sing in the inauguration and then we can debate which show is better!

I like Kelly but she did not do this song justice. It is a national song with specific notes and she just sang it her own way. I think it should be sung as written. In fact, Beyonce did the same thing to the National Anthem. Changed the notes throughout the song. ?????

@dibbee Vocally, she sang it well however off-tangent it was.

Also, the inaugural committee was very magnanimous for letting someone who endorsed Ron Paul to sing for the inauguration.  Kudos for them and for Kelly for singing for someone she did not endorse.

@dibbee Agreed.  I think songs like like these should be sang in tradition.  The audience likes to sing along to these songs and when the artist goes off tangent, it disconnects the audience from being a part of the experience.

@jiggamang @dibbee My understanding was in the actual election, she voted for President Obama. I think her performance was really, really good! You could tell she was nervous singing in front of one million people. What a great honor for her!

@Mikhail XO @Trey_ Don't you sarcastically reply to my comments, which aren't directed towards you? Oh. Just following standard. I'm used to it, I just don't see the need in biting others.

@Mikhail XOYou just need to stop assuming that you are on some other level than other people. No one else knows what they are talking about, but you do? I don't see a point in coming down on someone if they think that these stories are true - all the behind the scenes machinations don't make any sense any more than how they are propelled to superstardom on the show. My God, its just a show, not pointing out who Nigel hand plucks off the street. Its not like you have a stake invested in spreading the ruses and tricks that go on. At the end of the day it's just a show that people want to enjoy. Let us live please.
