*Most underrated National Anthem performance: fact!*

For me, tho it's not a competition, both Whitney and Mariah are tied as the best versions, both were soulful. Whitney was more powerful and Mariah most soft. Both were incredibly beautiful. Mariah last belt was EPIC. (I mean the creativity of this belt, the breath suport to even add vibrato in the end after doing those ascending/descending portamento (it's not as easy as it seems to be) and the incredible vocal break in the middle of the belt). Mimi and Nippy rules. <3 The greatest female vocalists ever!
Marcus Sand
Her voice is so smooth😁😍🙏🏻

This is the only version I've heard sung that gave me chills at parts.

To be clear. Whitney sang it like the soldiers are about to engage war and die for the country with honor. Mariah sang it like a grand homecoming after a bloody war, like getting rest after the long battle, Victory!
Kyle Lopez-Vito
Mariah's version at times of peace. Whitney's version at times of war.

Everybody could sing the version whitney did. They may not sound like her of course, but they could do her style but no one could do mariah's version. That's the annoying part of mariah's singing style, it is so unique that ul hate urself for not being to sing like her
Wotcher
The ending gave me legit chills and my nipples went hard. I never feel like that with songs. WTF?
LAWR
Okay, this is probbably the most inspirational rendition... The song is not meant to be that powerful... Mariah told a story with her singing.... This is my opinion..
Jordan Phillps
Look at it this way...Mariah, Whitney, Beyonce, Jennifer Hudson, and even Ariana Grande had different versions. Mariah was unique in the fact that she didn't SCREAM the whole song and she made it in HER style. Whitney and Beyonce both made it in THEIR style. Whitney made it powerful and Beyonce put in a lot of runs and really oversang. Mariah and Whitney were the best...

I was watching baking videos why did I end up watching different renditions of USA National Anthem? I'm not even American. hahaha
razrv3lc
That ending is one I've never heard anyone do before. It wasn't the usual build up chords and then a resolving chord. That was totally different but it still sounded good. I hate when singers change this song up too much so I think Mariah did a great job with this.

After my ears bled hearing fergie i came hear to heal it 😍 Ps whistle note just came

This is effortless perfection.

Got back here to clear up my ears from Lady Gaga's performance after watching Super Bowl Halftime and opening. This performance is way so underrated. After hearing Whitney and other singers scream the hell out of their lungs, what I noticed is that they keep on changing the key from verse to verse because some notes were too low for their voice while Mariah stayed on one key. If the notes are too low, she'll hit it. If it gets high, she's gonna hit it. This is a one hell of a masterpiece. This is technically, musically & artistically perfect! And a calmer and softer version. 😹😹😹 Love you, @mariahcarey! 😽😽😽😹
Adam
2:07 to 2:18 is amazing. I can't even right now.
Mjölnir
the best ending ever. 🙌🏾 🙌🏾 🙌🏾

Byrd_Ccino
The light and airy quality of this performance was very pleasing to my ears after hearing Jennifer Hudson's version. Good performance.
OKG2000
i was just about to say shes not even at 20% then she done that sick note and i was quickly put in my place
Joe José
Mariah Carey has the best version of the Star Spangled Banner followed by Whitney. you people need to understand that its not about how loud u make the note sound. Whitney has a more powerful voice than Mariah and she would Drown Mariah any day. However, Mariah has a wider range. She can hit more notes than Whitney hence the different between Whitney's 4 octaves to Mariah's 5. other celebs like beyonce etc. shouldnt even be talked about because they are just normal singera that can be compared to the rest of recent artist in the industry. Plz ppl quit rating these ppl just because you love them. Anyway, why i said Mariah's version is better is due to the fact that she squeezed so many notes within a few seconds. Not to mention that whistle register which puts her in a category with only her and Minnie Riperton.
Bill Ross
That was the best of all. No disrespect to Whitney with a close second
Bruce Leefan
After that Fergie monstrosity , I need to heal my ears with some Whitney, Mariah, Beyonce and Gaga.

DWriteLambily
Just absolute #SLAYAGE.She kept it soft, smooth, and angelic in all the right places and belted in all the right places. #TheQueen! I just dont get why some people want to scream this song at the top of their lungs (ScreamTina Aguilera) lol
MusicLover94
This is my favorite version. The fact that she put many different textures into the songs made it so much more emotional to me. HOWEVER, what people fail to realize is that the overall effect that this song has on people depends very heavily on the arrangement the orchestra decides to play. People always fail to mention that little detail. Therefore, many people would agree that Whitney had the best version because she did, in fact, have the better orchestral arrangement between these two performances.On a side note, Mariah executed this song in such a way that unless you have her ease of range and melisma, you could never copy this rendition. Analyzing the technicality in almost every syllable of this performance, this woman is very much a beast.Also, people claim to believe that singing the Nation Anthem in this way takes away from the true meaning of the song, but I beg to differ. After hearing this, I felt more as one with my country. Sounds crazy, but it's true. And no. I'm not a lamb. I own a couple songs by Mariah and that's it. But people should really respect this woman's craft and legacy considering how much she's impacted the industry. That should just be common knowledge.

 LORD, that was AMAZING!!! Shew! May just be a favorite over ALL. Hmm.... CHILLS!

I came here after watching Fergie..Who did too?
SBMyee
Absolutely incredible performance! 1:52 she hits a whistle tone B7 flawlessly (just 1 half-step away from the highest note on the piano) This has got to be one of the best performances of our national anthem ever, up there with Whitney Houston’s legendary rendition. Also, her ending was sung so perfectly
Bye Bye Skinny Legend

Keeping up with the lambily
Mariah sounds like the heavens open up the gates and the angels are singing. Whitney is like all the forces of nature combined together. Both incredible women and vocalists.

I get goose bumps every time
Brandon Kennedy
From one vocalist to a host of others, and from someone is not a fan of Mariah whatsoever... This rendition of the National Anthem is the best I've ever heard in my life! There is definitely a story behind her rendition for some reason!... 1) Mariah Carey 2) Jennifer Hudson 3) Whitney Houston 4) Beyonce (2004 version) That's the order... The real vocalist know that this is the undeniable list right here! 💯💯
Daud Rotama
I'm tired of every Whitney/Mariah comparisons. LIKE COME ON why don't y'all just agree that the TWO gave excellent renditions of the anthem? Like... seriously, no one comes close to their renditions.
faithoffaith
In my opinion I think this is the best version I've heard for me. But of course Whitney blew us away too so they both are fantastic but Mariah's voice is so angelic, she has so many different colours to her voice, from breathy, whispery, low, high, growls, upper belts, and of course her famous whistle register. I love this version so much.
Carl Rainier
Best Star Spangled Banner ever from female singers 1-Mariah Carey 2-Vanessa Williams 3-Jennifer Hudson 4-Beyonce
