I'LL TRY TO MAKE THIS AS SHORT AND SWEET AND EASY TO UNDERSTAND AS POSSIBLE....
I am also a performer and knowing a bit about the "inside/behind the scenes dealings" I had to get this off my chest because it has been bugging all
this week....IN EAR MONITORS....that is all that happened...here's what I mean.
Did anyone notice the FIGHTER JETS???? They flew over the stadium at the VERY END of the National Anthem, this took VERY SPECIFIC timing...
Performers have what they call "in ear monitors", not only would you be able to hear your own voice through this....you could also hear (let's say
---- producers, stage managers, directions) --
So as she was singing the song (and started off a bit slower than she should have) she likely heard a voice in her ears
EXAMPLE Voice: "30 seconds to Fighter Jets" - or "Speed it up, the fighter jets are approaching, you have X amount of seconds"
Did she mess up......YES
Forget the lyrics....MAYBE.....but I'd say when you have 100,000,000 people watching...you are nervous...AND have a certain time
restriction....MAYBE, just MAYBE let the girl off the hook...and not blame it on Fox News
