Crosby and Staal were holding back smiles, while Erik Karlsson simply could not :lol: Even people in the stands appeared to be laughing at her. Nice voice, but opera singers should stay away from hockey rinks.

This made me feel really awkward. It felt like it took an eternity

Thank goodness the national anthem is sung only pre playoff games here in finland, no anthem during the regular season which should be the way in NHL too.

Well that's what happens when you bring in someone from RuPaul's Drag Race to sing the National Anthems before a game I guess.

I love the way they do it in Tampa Bay--no anthem singer, just an organ with the words on the jumbo tron and everyone sings it. :thumbup: :clap:

The flag the was being passed around wasn't even made before she started singing. I think someone got bored and just made it with plenty of time to spare.

"Lemme hear ya!" In the middle of the Canadian National Anthem? Really? I mean, the style and sloooow moootion isn't exactly great, but that really ended it right there.

Nobody lives forever.
Some things never die.
Like up in the land of ice and snow,
They tell me that a Red Wing always flies.

Was watching this live but wasn't paying attention to the players reactions, glad I wasn't the only one who thought something was off though

I like how the reaction from both the players and the crowd seems to be a combination of laughter and "are we being punked?"

Completely classless with the "let me hear you" during O Canada. I don't have a problem with opera singers doing the anthems, as I've heard many of them perform them well and with the respect and dignity the songs deserve. I've also heard far too many "vocalists" from all genres turn the national anthems into exercises in musical masturbation.

This one's vibrato, however, was beyond obnoxious. If a soprano was to sing like that for any of the honors chorus auditions I've been involved with she wouldn't qualify for districts, let alone regions or all states. While being part of a chorus is different than being a soloist, vibrato wide enough to drive a semi truck through that detracts from the performance is never acceptable.

It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

In Tampa Bay, they use the Jumbotron as a teleprompter? Interesting.
