Jordin Sparks: the latest wannabe who just can't sing the Star Spangled Banner

Like so many, she couldn't seem to resist singing "glare," "wave," "free" and "brave" each have only one syllable. But for crying out loud, was it really necessary to turn "wave" into "wa-ay-ay-ay-ay-ave", or make the second syllable of "free" into a screech?

Update: with the game about to start, I forgot to add my main gripe, that she just couldn't get the timing right, besides singing at too slow a tempo. She seemed to lengthen certain beats for effect, which ruined the flow.

I didn't watch American Idol when she won, and I had never heard her sing before. I'm not impressed.
