Any singer, or singers, whose national anthem exceeds a minute and 15 seconds
would be subject to arrest and prosecution.
That might be a bit harsh — I’m sure there have been some decent renditions of the national anthem that have run a bit long.
My version of this would read:
Any professional singer, or singers, who get the words wrong when singing the
national anthem would be subject to arrest and prosecution.
If you’re a professional performer and your honored (yes, honored) with the task of singing the national anthem at a sporting event, learn the words. You have one job, please do it right.
