Doing it right
Five 6-8 year old girls did it Acapella [sic]. And (LIVE). With no orchestra. Without singing off-key. Without screwing up the lyrics. And they sounded a heckuva lot better than Christina Aguilera.
As Mac said in Tender Mercies, "Sing it the way you feel it." Watching "Xtina" butcher the National Anthem reminded me of the very next scene in that excellent movie, in which Dixie is hypocritically singing "Over You."
Okay, I'm done Christina-bashing. For now. Now, if you haven't seen Tender Mercies, go watch it right now on Netflix. If you have seen it, watch it again.
