    Mary J. Blige performs the US national anthem at the Kentucky Derby.

    Remember when Mary J. Blige massacred the US national anthem, ‘The Star Spangled Banner’, at the 2012 NBA All-Star Game? Well, she decided to give the tune and her vocal chance another try at the Kentucky Derby.

    Thankfully, Blige remained with the limitations of her vocal range and handled ‘The Star Spangled Banner’ with more ease than her previous attempt at the All-Star Game. Watch Blige belt the US anthem at the Derby below:

      Well, I didn’t win, but I was in 3rd for a while. All the same, Blige missed some notes. “The rocket’s red glare” was flat, and the section from 1:40 to about 1:55 shows that she’s really trying to find the notes — moving on and off pitch until she just about gets back in the right key.
