It started in 1990 with Rosanne Barr butchering our National Anthem before a Padres game. In 1993 an ill prepared Carl Lewis ruined it. Lately it's happening a lot more frequently. Whether it's Christina Aguilara at the Superbowl, Scott Stapp before a NASCAR race, or non celebs like Alexis Normand at the 2013 World Cup Hockey Finals, we seem to have a hard time getting the song sung correctly before big events. Last night James Taylor actually forgot what song he was supposed to sing! You have 1 song to sing, and it's our National Anthem...you should be practicing that song for days before you get to the mic. James looks like they plucked him from the crowd and said "sing us something patriotic". He starts off on America The Beautiful and someone yells "sing the anthem".
