People Are Saying Demi Lovato Bombed the National Anthem. Also, I’m Alive!

I’ll leave it up to you to decide, though (about Demi bombing the Anthem, not me being alive, because I promise you, this post is coming to you live and I am not at all dead). Here’s Demi‘s Star Spangled Banner rendition at game five of the World Series, and while I don’t think it was as bad as some critics are saying (because some critics, guys, are saying it’s pretty f-cking awful), I can say, with much conviction, that it’s not nearly as good or cute as Zooey Deschanel’s, which we ran yesterday. Get on with your bad self:

So, alright. Girl can sing. Not bad, OK? I just liked Zooey‘s rendition much better. Here’s hers, and you can tell me your thoughts:

  • … I just don’t understand the desire to change the tune by adding all the vocal gymnastics. It makes it less about the song and more about them, and that isn’t the point.

    • I totally agree. Its like they’re trying to put “feeling” into a song that already has it and it just ends up sounding bad. I personally find it disrespectful as well.

  • What’s the deal with people always doing the annoying “taking a shit” singing with the American anthem? Here in Canada, it’s sung regular and every sings along and no one gives a fuck about how fancy ass the singing is because that’s not the point of singing the national anthem. Plus all the vocal acrobatics makes it last for.ever.

  • They have two entirely different vocal styles. Both were good, neither were great.

    Honestly though, I don’t “get” Zooey. Like Patrick Verona said, “What is it with this chick? She have beer flavored nipples?”

  • She did ok. Maybe a little screechy because she started in a little higher key. Definitely not a ‘bomb’ like Xtina or other turds who flubbed the words.

    Pretty sure her day consisted of
    Sing
    Curse out ex’s latest girlfriend
    Cry
    Cut
    Sleep
    all good.
