There was clearly no emotion when Evancho performed the national anthem in Washington, D.C. She was not able to form a strong connection with the patriotic tune, as she normally does with her classical crossover recordings. Her performance was monotone, lackluster and boring; moreover, it felt as if one were watching a zombie singing auto-tune.
Even the high note that Evancho belted out in the end was not enough to save that disastrous vocal performance of hers. The sixteen-year-old songstress’ voice was very shaky and unstable. The nerves in this situation got the best of her.
