    8 Of The Finalists On Hand To Perform "National Anthem" @ The Coca-Cola 600

    8 of the Finalists will be on hand Sunday; May 30th (5:00 pm est on Fox) to perform the National Anthem at the Coca-Cola 600 in Charlotte (No Fantasia or Diana They must be too busy which I can understand) Charlotte is close to both Fantasia's hometown & Diana's (2 hrs. from each- Charlotte is right in the middle basically.) Oh well, I guess that's showbiz

    A selected group last season did this as well, and I remember they had some solo's, and later were drowned out because of overhead jets flying at the peak of the song. I'm expecting a better one this time, and good Tamyra won't be on hand to deliver the national anthem...

    It's too bad Diana couldn't be there. She's had lots of experience doing just that. I still think that she should have sang the National Anthem on Wednesday's show. They knew the girl had lost so it could have been a little something extra for her.

    Don't worry, Tamyra will fly overhead, then parachute out of the plane and starting singing with them, effectively destroying the melody, if 19E has anything to say about it

    Actually the 8 finalists who are there are the ones who placed 3rd to 10th. Now I am wondering if Matt and Leah will be on the tour. Those two werent even invited for this function.

    After watching the performance, I thought Jon Peter did unusually well, with Jennifer and LaToya doing some unusual runs at the end of the song(not particularly popular with NASCAR fans, I would think)

    I am also surprised to say that JPL did a nice job!

    IMO, George was pretty good but off key at one point. Amy did good. LaToya did a nice job the first time but did something with her voice the second time. Jennifer and Jasmine were OK. John wasn't too bad. Camille was...well, not good at all.

    However, I must admit it was nice seeing them all again!
