Or when someone publicly sings the Star Spangled Banner.
It’s quite common now to see divas and boy bands and all matter of wannabes all stylizing their way through our National Anthem. They scoop for the lows, stretch for the highs, interject a few gospel growls, throw an interminably long descant on “freeeee!,” and then add a few unnecessary tags at the end. (I keep expecting someone to add “Oh baby!” at some point.) It probably began simply enough; some celebrity vocalist added a simple flourish to the song, is applauded for it, and since then, scores of singers have been trying to outdo it since.
