CNN anchor Robin Meade sang the national anthem at the Sprint Cup race today at Talladega, Ala.
Many think it fell flat.
Was feeling good.
Then listened to Robin Meade butcher the National Anthem at Talladega.
Now my head hurts.

Please don't mess up the American National Anthem like that, Robin Meade. Ever again.

Some think she might have tried to improviseÂ too much.

Robin Meade. Not good. Not good at all. This isn't American Idol. You don't make the National Anthem your own. #Nascar

@RobinMeade I didn't care for your rendition of the Nat'l Anthemâ€¦great voice but why not stick to the original version!?

Apparently nobody told Robin Meade which parts of the national anthem to hold #nscs

Others, however, think it was a success.
@RobinMeade Really great job with the anthem earlier today!
