Obligatory Kat DeLuna murders 'The Star-Spangled Banner' video

(Via Hot Air.) I blame Whitney Houston for this trend of singers trying to turn the national anthem into an "American Idol" audition. This whole Patti LaBelle diva thing with all the note-bending and vibrato is just so overdone. Notice it's when DeLuna tries to do the octave jump at the end -- and comes up about three half-steps short -- that she really botches it.

"The Star-Spangled Banner" is a difficult song to sing as it is. Just remember the words, hit the notes, and everybody will be happy. It's not about you.
