Who’s National Anthem Was Better: Steven Tyler Vs. Kristin Chenoweth [VIDEO]
So, I’m on the couch getting ready for the AFC Championship, when Steven Tyler comes on to sing the National Anthem.
Turns out the AFC and NFC Championship games weren’t the only good battles on Sunday; it was the Battle of the National Anthem between rocker Steven Tyler and Broadway Tony Award winner Kristin Chenoweth.
Personally, I thought Tyler kicked his version. Yeah he screwed up the words which is totally unacceptable, but it was raw and it was Steven Tyler. Hell, I’ve heard him screw up Aerosmith lyrics at their live shows.
I texted a couple of friends and they responded with “dude Tyler friggin blew.”
Then it was Kristin Chenoweth’s turn to open the NFC game, and she came out and proved, that maybe we should leave the National Anthem to “Professional” vocalist and rock and roll to the “Rockers.”
Great games on Sunday, with New England winning a close one 23-20 over the Ravens to advance; and The New York Giants in a thriller over the 49ers 20-17 in OT to set up Superbowl XLVI.
Please rise and remove your hats and check out the videos.
