Which idol performances of the National Anthem have been your favorites over the years? Of course, I’m going to say Phillip’s from last night was my favorite, I thought he did a fantastic job with it, especially considering I never would have pictured that as a song for him to sing.
My other favorite anthems come from Kelly, Carrie and Jordin’s superbowl appearances, they were ALL stellar. Also, Adam Lambert does a REALLY lovely rendition. I’d love to see him sing it at more events.
This is one of the most difficult songs to sing, especially under the cirmcunstances of being in front of thousands and on tv. I know I’d be a nervous wreck! I think all our idols have done a great job, even when there have been a few flubs, many of the greats have let nerves get the best of them.
I like the singer-songwriters. If they play an instrument, write music, and of course move me, they'll probably have my vote, regardless of gender, race, or instrument preference IDC #1

Pia did a nice job with it last year at the Memorial Day concert and she's done several others. She seems to have The Star Spangled Banner down to a science and always does a good job with it. She'll also be representing the U.S.A. on Sunday in London when she sings the anthem at the Saints/Patriots game. They may not show it on TV though, as they usually don't for regular season NFL games, but maybe since it's the overseas game they will this time. I hope they do. Katherine Jenkins will be singing the British anthem.

Two Carrie performances have got to be my favs.....first was here in Detroit during the NBA finals, less than 2 weeks after she won the idol title. The other was during an NFC championship game (I think it was in Seattle....she was wearing a beautiful white coat).
Phil did a tremendous job last night. The crowd gave him a nice ovation when he was introduced and another near the end of his performance. Nicely done.

Maybe it's an "age thing" but, anytime I see any of the Idol's out there singing the National Anthem, a feeling of pride comes over me, like a mom watching her child succeed . I had the privilege of watching that happen over and over, and again last night!
I'm a nervous wreck every time an Idol performs the National Anthem. I'm like a mother going to her child's first dance recital.

Forgot about Adam's version.
It was a good one, worthy of mention.
