Fergie made me watch this I needed to cleanse my ears
*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!

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!
This is the only version I've heard sung that gave me chills at parts.
Marcus Sand
Her voice is so smooth😁😍🙏🏻
Kyle Lopez-Vito
Mariah's version at times of peace. Whitney's version at times of war.
Noah Tetreault

Whitney for the power, Mariah for angelic softness.

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...
Vernon Visperas
Her voice is incomparably unique
I was watching baking videos why did I end up watching different renditions of USA National Anthem? I'm not even American. hahaha
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.
The ending gave me legit chills and my nipples went hard. I never feel like that with songs. WTF?

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
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..
Miss Universe Moments
Bring this Mariah back!!!

Thanh Nguyen Duy
Both Mariah's and Whitney's performance give me chills, different chills.
Biggest selling female artist of all time. Most number 1 singles than any one else but the Beatles. That says it all. Mariah is #1!!!
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.
Khim Valmonte

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! 😽😽😽😹
Randy Robinson
they shoulda just played this video instead of letting fergie sing
The light and airy quality of this performance was very pleasing to my ears after hearing Jennifer Hudson's version. Good performance.
Bill Ross
That was the best of all. No disrespect to Whitney with a close second

This is to me The Most BEAUTIFUL version EVER !!!  Mariah`s voice is heaven <3 I LOVE YOU MC FOREVER AND ALWAYS :))))  The Most wonderful and magical female singer in the WORLD :))) Much love from Denmark babe ;)  God bless <3
Dwayne Martinez
Yessssssss!!! Only Whitney & Mariah gave this life!!!
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
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.
2:07 to 2:18 is amazing. I can't even right now.
lovey hernandez
I am in love with her voice

I’m not a fan of Mariah, but her range and tone is phenomenal!
Allan Cabatbat
Most people here are awful. This version is better than that of Whitney(no disrespect). She just can't get the respect she deserves so she can't be the best.
christian soriano
Who are watching the National Anthem after Fergie performance?
This is amazing!! Mariah is the best
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! 💯💯
Whitney is the voice before battle and Mariah is the voice after victory.
1) Mariah Carey 2) Whitney Houston 3) Lady Gaga

Alannah A
2:18 I dislike that part....
Virgil Absolom
Mariah's range made her rendition different, cause she went low in certain parts and added high notes too, especially that whistle which i live for. Other artists just do a bunch of screaming and that includes Whitney, but she has a powerful voice so its understandable.
Julio Hernandez
Whitney Mariah Gaga

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.
