Marvin's is cool and I have no idea why the Dixie Chicks are on that list. The two other girls in that group aren't even good singers. I still think Whitney's is the best. It's a shame the pipe got hold of her.

Even though decorum would dictate that you should be silent when the National Anthem is being played, unless you sing along, the rendition at Chicago is awesome. Definitely worth a look.

Marvin's is definitely the most original, Whitney's is the most powerful and beautiful, and Wayne Messmer's is the most stirring.

Whitney's is my favorite. I get goosebumps when she sings it.

I think Marvin Gayes is the most original....but the best is Enrico Pollazo's rendition. :D

I don't think I've heard anyone do a good performance of the national anthem. I don't think it can be done.
