The 86th Annual MLB All-Star game was treated to a rousing rendition of the U.S. National Anthem by ‘I Bet’ belter Ciara tonight.

Held at Cincinnati’s Great American Ball Park, the outing comes as the Grammy winner’s first televised showing of the famously trying number.

Did she hit a home run?  Watch it below and tell us:

Admittedly a bit shaky in the beginning, we’re ever so proud of the stageblazer for pulling it together and knocking the song’s most important moments right out of the park!

Good showing!

  12. #TeamTinashe Stan (The New Era Is Approaching…) July 14, 2015

    “Soars?” Do you mean her throat was “Sore”? That’s what it sounds like, no shade. Why does she keep doing these things to herself? She’s not Tinashe, Mya or Aaliyah when it comes to bringing “IT” live in the vocal department.

    You see how you pressed and ignroant stans want to gain up on Ciara. Stop using that redundant 2005 Bush event as a source to justify your delsuional opinions. Ciara has y’all pressed and stay checking for her. It’s like you love to shade her constantly it’s laughable.

    • What now July 14, 2015

      SHE HAS DELUSIONAL STANS GOING TO EVERY ARTICLE KISSING ASS AND SHADING WAY MORE BEAUTIFUL, SUCCESSFUL, AND TALENTED ARTISTS THAN HER. NO ONE IS PRESSED OVER CIARA IN 2015. THIS GIRL CAN’T EVEN GET CERTIFIED GOLD IF YOU ADDED UP EVERY ALBUM COMBINED POST THE EVOLUTION. KIII.

      • @4everBrandy_Ci July 14, 2015

        Who is shading “way more successful talented artists”? Please there’s only a handful (few) that is successful. Either you bums spend less time checking for you fav just to see what Ciara is doing. BYE. ———>

  22. @JanetCIARA_ July 14, 2015

    Yall are reaching, it wasn’t that bad, yet I don’t know why she agreed to this…. She is not a vocalist. Yes there have been some improvements vocally, but this isn’t exactly her lane. I just love how she challenges herself, yall can hate on her all you want from your computers, and that’s exactly where you’ll stay….

    • Lame Erie July 14, 2015

      The star spangled banner is a hard song to sing you’re right its not her lane . at least your honest

    • @4everBrandy_Ci July 14, 2015

      She did good in my honest opinion. It’s just these shady ass coons want to tear her down. I respect your opinion as a Ciara fan. She really has proved tremendously overall.

    • Teflon Boy July 15, 2015

      If someone who never went to medical school challenged themselves to do open heart surgery would that be impressive too lol? Aaliyah wasn’t marketed as a vocalist as such but if you stopped her mid-interview or booked her for the President she could stand still and give you a gorgeous well-trained vocal performance. Ciara is a nice enough girl and a solid performer but at 30yrs old her vocals are still non-existent and painful to listen to.

  23. Molly July 14, 2015

    My baby did her thing… F uck yall haters.

    • Mimi Carey July 14, 2015

      Are you sure?

    • Molly July 14, 2015

      B itch your fav is performing on subways and going unnoticed you’re the last one who needs to be speaking.

    • What now July 14, 2015

      AT LEAST HER DANCING WASN’T AS SHAKY AS THESE VOCALS (EVEN THOUGH IT WAS CLOSE KIII).

    • Rih up July 14, 2015

      At least Ci is slaying a stage, while your fav has resorted to singing on subways. Btw, someone needs to tell her to lose that raggedy as wig, she’s over there looking like ET’s Mom.

      • Mimi Carey July 14, 2015

        At least Brandy has been selling out Broadway every night lol Cici couldn’t sell out a storefront church fish fry

      • Rih up July 14, 2015

        Girl bye, judging by that 7 train disaster, she’s not selling out anything with her ugly ass.

  25. Brandon July 14, 2015

    She should have taken more time between each phrase and ditched a of those quivering runs

  26. Rih up July 14, 2015

    She did her thing, I don’t see what the problem was.

  27. Mimi Carey July 14, 2015

    Those vocals were H-O horrible! After 11 years she still can’t get it right and what’s up with the background vocalists?????????????????

  29. Russell Wilson July 14, 2015

    Im embarrassed

  30. Grande The Way July 14, 2015

    The Star Spangled Banner is difficult to sing even for vocalist so I don’t see why they asked Ciara, who isn’t known for her voice, or why Ciara agreed to this. The beginning was just awful and it didn’t improve much towards then end. Ciara never was a good singer. She just wasn’t built for that.

  31. Iconic Cici July 14, 2015

    It honestly wasn’t that bad she still slays Rihanna. btw why are Mariah stans talking about vocals when Mariah hasn’t had them since the 90s?

  32. Mark111 July 14, 2015

    Not bad, better than MOST. Better than Beyonce’s imo. (Not the TWO pre-recorded ones, her actual LIVE one.

  37. Lake Erie July 14, 2015

    LMAO @ these Damm comments. Smh. F-u-c-k all yal! BUT I WILL BE Honest lol. My baby did ok. I really don’t know how to explain it but her notes are never ended smoothly if that makes any since. I think that’s where she ends up failing. BUT nonetheless, she did it. I’m proud of her and I love how the camEra was positioning on her. S-e-x-y angles.

  40. E Young July 14, 2015

    This was teribble and she should be a shame of herself. It seems to me that she didn’t practice at all. Ciara needs a 3-5 year break from the music industry, she needs to find herself.

    Oh Rashad. Bless your heart.

    With this, her serial floppage and disability to sell record, and raising an illegitimate basťard child, she’s an embarrassment to her team; she’s an embarrassment to her Label; she’s an embarrassment to her damn self.

    If it wasn’t for the back ground singers it would of been a complete disaster!

  43. Rihanna Navy July 14, 2015

    Atleast she sang it live unlike Beyonce.

  44. Mark111 July 14, 2015

    The song is just a HARD song to sing, even for singers. I was surprised by some of those notes tho. Ciara has a nice tone, she should just work with that and know her range.

  45. Kellyrowlandarmy July 14, 2015

    Hell no girl WTH was that.

    • Cici Da Baddest July 14, 2015

      Who is Kelly?

  46. Cici Da Baddest July 14, 2015

    Better than Beyonces because it was actually L.I.V.E.

  47. Flydeez July 14, 2015

    Oh please. Had this been Mariah, you guys you’ve had much more negatives things to say.

  48. Stephy. July 14, 2015

    No one is better than Whitney Houston.

  50. Rosie July 14, 2015

    I know this is a hard song to sing, but just..no.

  51. Jamie July 14, 2015

    She should have sang “I Bet”.

  52. RoyalBey July 14, 2015

    Yaaaas!.. She did better than Whitney Houston. Lmao

  53. Brandy Stan July 14, 2015

    She sounded better than Rihanna though, even though they both sound like their being slapped in the twat.

  54. Marc July 14, 2015

    WHO EVER wrote the article on Ciara blowing the national anthem out the park WITHOUT A DOUBT DONT KNOW “MUSIC”!!!! She had NO BREATH or PHRASING CONTROL!!! One FURTHER STEP: She has AND WILL NEVER BE A BELTER when it comes to SINGING!!! NOTHING, I REPEAT, NOTHING AGAINST her, BUT SHE IS “NOT”a SINGER!!! She TALK-SINGS her words!!!”HONESTY” is the BEST POLISH and people should STOP creating WRONG-HYPE to SELL ARTICLES!!!!! LET THE “TRUTH” BE KNOWN!!! I could have put my NINE your old cousin up against the job Ciara did AND YOU WOULD HAVE “HEARD” A “REAL” TRUE SINGER!!! GET YO FART STRAIGHT AND BE “HONEST” in your WRITING!!!! TRUTH HURTS!!!

  55. Brandy Stan July 14, 2015

    She sounded better than Rihanna though, even though they both sound s***.

  56. ratedxxx July 14, 2015

    she doesnt sound as bad as people are trying to make it seem…I know Ciara is not a vocalist…I actually like her voice,,it’s different…

    at least she didn’t lip sync it…

    give the girl a break….she’s trying..after all these years she’s finally getting the attention she deserves

    and you guys still talking shitttt

    her dumb stans may irk me..but she’s not a flop…get over it

  57. Sandra July 15, 2015

    That was awful. Ciara can’t sing. She should just stick to dancing.

  58. Xtina = The voice of this generation July 15, 2015

    Ahhh I don’t know wasn’t that bad. The best Star Spangled Banner renditions are Nippy’s, DC3’s, Mariah’s, Xtina’s & Beyoncé’s.

  59. Sweetnothings78 July 15, 2015

    I wonder if any of you can do it. STFU, such negative comments.

  60. coolness July 15, 2015

    I love my CiCi. She’s beautiful, has such a positive spirit and is a great performer but this was cringe-worthy. I give her credit for taking the time improve her voice as she sounds better than she did 11 years ago when she debuted. I can’t say the same about some other singers with similarly small voices. The first sign this wasn’t such a good idea was seeing her three back-up singers with her on the field. I can’t recall ever seeing a solo artist perform this song with other people unless they use a band. She had such a rough start and her pitch was off. Same goes for her phrasing. Her belts were good for her though. Ciara needs to understand that she will never be regarded as a vocalist and that’s fine. Janet, J.Lo and Britney all made great careers out of being passable singers.

    • A&R July 15, 2015

      Thank you. Like why in thee hell would her team allow this?! Like why….?! I’m baffled.

  61. hivehighness July 15, 2015

    For those saying it was better than beyonces cause it was live…sit. You all know that Beyonce vocally destroys ciara and ri for those old navy stans

    When & Why Did Our Moms Become Less Than Human?

    Hi. Reading the lyrics to CIARA’S “I’m Out” (feat. Nicki Minaj) I am puzzled by something, perhaps someone can help?

    Who is responsible for *influencing or conditioning* many young Americans of African descent to characterize our moms, sisters, grandmas, daughters and aunts as less than human creatures?

    Growing up in the 60s, year after year I’d roll out of bed in the morning, crank up my 9v transistor radio listening to contemporary sounds, including a new genre of American music its artists, composers, lyricists and producers called Motown.

    My Motown musician friends wrote and performed music that made me smile, wanting to dance, celebrate life and wanting to experience the love between a man and a woman they were constantly telling me about. Every hour of every day I could tune in my radio and listen to my talented Motown musician friends singing songs praising and loving women

    Listening to these musicians celebrating life and loving women *conditioned me* to believe they are good, peaceful people deserving of respect, admiration and a large *”Thank you”* for sharing their musical talent with me, my friends and our world.

    What I am trying to figure out is why today, many of my Motown friend’s children and grandchildren are writing contemporary music performance lyrics that clearly are demeaning and HATING on each other, as well as writing lyrics demeaning women, our moms, sisters, grandmas, daughters and aunts, characterizing women as *itches* and *hores*, essentially less than human not deserving of respect? Which is pretty much how greedy or genuinely ignorant early Euros characterized the African people they abducted and enslaved.

    What happened? Why have females fallen out of favor with many young people who write rap hip hop performances?

    Another question. Today when ten-year-old American kids wake up, tune into their fav contemporary radio station, listening to lyrics describing anti-social activities and behaviors their parents, community and educators are telling them are harmful to them, their neighbors and community, what opinions, if any, will these 5th grade children form about the music performers writing music lyrics describing anti-social behaviors and activities that often emotionally traumatize and physically harm individual peaceful people and the neighborhoods they live or work in?

    Who is responsible for influencing some or many Americans of African descent to view females as less than human *itches?

    What subliminal messages are today’s youngsters learning when they hear Americans of African descent characterizing women, aka our moms, sisters, grandmas, daughters and aunts, as inhuman bvtches, not worthy of respect?

    Thanks.
