One of the worst trends in sports has been this need for singers walking out onto the playing field before the game to get creative with the National Anthem. There’s just no need to turn Francis Scott Key’s patriotic number into a Timbaland hit.

 

Kat DeLuna, who’s apparently a “pop sensation,” butchered the national anthem so badly on Monday Night that she was booed at Texas Stadium, a place that’s probably never booed while the national anthem was being sung.

 

Here’s DeLuna’s performance followed by a hilarious sketch by Maya Rudolph on Saturday Night Live poking fun at the absurdity of some of today’s anthem crooners. Which one would you rather hear? I’ll take the latter. At least Rudolph’s rendition makes me laugh instead of cringe.
