1) Kat DeLuna, 2008
Oh, [lastfm]Kat DeLuna[/lastfm]. Once a pop newcomer with a bright future, the Dominican singer never quite recovered from this national anthem performance at a 2008 Dallas Cowboys game.
Any way you look at it, it’s a spectacular failure. She tries too hard to hit the notes that only a rarefied circle of divas can, then takes us on a painfully bumpy roller coaster ride of vocal runs.
She half-forgets the lyrics. She completely botches the last note. And she does it all with the swagger of something who believes she’s positively killing it.
When a chorus of boos erupts at the end, it’s far too little, too late.
