Victoria Zarlenga sings worst national anthem ever | inside World Soccer

Sadly this will go down as one of the worst national anthem performances ever. Just listen.



UPDATE: Victoria has given her response to the National Anthem performance.

In response to this video and the comments...

I totally hear you, this was not a good performance and I take full responsibility for it! I did not realize I would need ear buds as monitors and to block out the stadium sound delay, lack of knowledge on my part. Therefore, I had to borrow a pair from the sound crew that were too large for my ears and were popping out. Watching the video you can see that I was trying to hold the left ear bud in with my hand.

That said, I was unable to hear myself and was only hearing the few second delay of my voice in the stadium. To add to the challenge, the fans were singing in sync with my few seconds delay. I kept hearing myself and the fans singing what I knew I had just sung a few seconds before through the whole song. That was an incredible challenge just to get through the song, trying to concentrate on finishing, let alone pitch, time, etc.

I heard from a few fans that said the view on the Jumbotron was not in sync with what they were hearing. Apparently the TV recording and stadium sound were two separate systems - you had to be present at the stadium to see and hear the delay. This was the first time I ever experienced a sound delay. I was very disoriented with all these variables!

I would like to share with you a previous rendition and live performance of the National Anthem from about six months ago without the technical challenges - visit this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ftk3sGMgqn0
