    Most overrated singing of the anthem EVER.
    AND it wasn't live.
    It wasn't live?
    If that's the Super Bowl version, no, it was not live.

    The lawsuit, filed Friday, asked for enforcement of a 1991 agreement requiring the record company to pay the orchestra royalties on all sales worldwide of Houston's rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner, a patriotic hit during the Gulf War. The orchestra accompanied her performance, which caused a small flap at the time because Houston lip-synched the song at the Super Bowl. The recording was reissued after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and became a hit again, rising as high as No. 6 on the Billboard singles chart. The song had previously been rereleased in 2000 on Houston's two-CD Arista album The Greatest Hits, whose sales have topped 10-million copies.

    The humid conditions in Tampa in 1991 contributed to Whitney Houston's decision to go with the recording, and it's that performance that remains "the benchmark," notes producer Rickey Minor, who's working with Beyoncé.

    I got a new one for you, that I rarely hear mentioned in great renditions of the song.
    But this is my ALL-TIME favorite.
