Everyone knows the words to the National Anthem when they are singing with hundreds of other people at a local sporting event.  Remembering the words when you are the only one singing to a crowd of ten thousand is a different story.  Check out the best and worst of the song that everyone thinks they know.

Beyonce, Jimmi Hendrix and Whitney Houston have locked a place in history with their epic performances.  Unfortunately so have Roseanne, Christina Aguilera, R. Kelly and many others with their less than stellar renditions.

To me the surprise of this video is Robert Downey Jr!  He even looks shocked when he absolutely nails it.  At the end of the day though, it just does not get any better than Marvin Gaye.

What is the most memorable performance of the National Anthem to you?

Here is Clay's favorite performance!
