Brett Young Destroys National Anthem, Possibly Career in General

Brett Young sang the Star-Spangled Banner prior to the NHL All-Star Game on Saturday, and we know what you're thinking:

There was an NHL All-Star Game on Sunday?!?

There's still such a thing as the NHL?!?

Apparently, yes and yes. We're as shocked as you are by both of these answers.

But the surprising existence of professional hockey isn't the point right now.

Instead, the point is the existence of the following video.

It features the aforementioned country music artist possibly damaging his career permanently by utterly destroying his country's theme song.

Following a perfectly strong rendition of the Canadian national anthem, Young steps up to the microphone and sounds like he'd rather be anywhere on the planet that center ice at that moment.

His version of this beloved song is slow and stilted. It lacks emotion of any kind.

It seems in certain places as if he's unsure what the next lyric is.

As you can see, we aren't the only people who thought these mean thoughts.

One Twitter user wrote that Young sang the anthem as if he was performing at the funeral, which is an apt assessment.

It felt like it took foooooorever for the song to finish, even though Young clocked in at one minute and 50 seconds, which is 10 seconds fewer than the over/under currently set for Pink at Super Bowl 52 this Sunday.

So the performance wasn't actually that long.

It just felt that long.

So as the pressure turns to Pink and the most-watched Star-Spangled Banner of them all in a few days, take a couple moments below to watch Young totally butcher the famous track.

We're sure he meant well.

We're just also sure it didn't turn out well.

(Young's anthem starts around the 2:10 mark below.)

Neil Diamond Diagnosed With Parkinson’s, Announces Ends of Concert Career

Neil Diamond made a very sad announcement on Monday night:

Due to a recent medical diagnosis, the legendary singer has been forced to retire from touring, effective immediately.

The musician, who turns 77 years old on January 24, confirmed via his official website this evening that he has Parkinson’s Disease.

“It is with great reluctance and disappointment that I announce my retirement from concert touring. I have been so honored to bring my shows to the public for the past 50 years,” Diamond said.

He continued:

”My sincerest apologies to everyone who purchased tickets and were planning to come to the upcoming shows.”

That’s very sweet and very silly, of course.

Diamond does not owe anyone an apology of any kind.

The statement went on to detail how the onset of the Parkinson’s Disease has “made it difficult to travel and perform on a large scale basis but will allow Mr. Diamond to continue his writing, recording and development of new projects.”

Parkinson’s is a neurological disease.

It typically affects one’s motor skills, along with one’s balance and the use of one’s limbs.

There is no known cause.

It is not considered fatal, but there are no known cures, either, and it can be very debilitating.

Added Diamond on his website:

“I plan to remain active in writing, recording and other projects for a long time to come. My thanks goes out to my loyal and devoted audiences around the world.

“You will always have my appreciation for your support and encouragement.

“This ride has been ‘so good, so good, so good’ thanks to you.”

As a result of this diagnosis, the third leg of Diamond’s 50th Anniversary tour has been canceled, including the Australia and New Zealand dates that were scheduled to kick off in March.

Simply put, Diamond is a music legend.

He’s an all-timer.

The musician has sold over 130 million albums and earned a spot in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame.

Among his most beloved tracks:

  • “I’m a Believer” (1967)
  • “Red Red Wine” (1967)
  • “Sweet Caroline (Good Times Never Seemed So Good)” (1969)
  • “Cracklin’ Rosie” (1970)

Despite his advanced age, Diamond has performed regularly over the past few years.

He was a major draw on FOX’s New Year’s Eve with Steve Harvey: Live From Times Square just a couple weeks ago, for example.

The Recording Academy will honor Diamond with its prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award during the Grammy Awards on January 28 on CBS.

We’ll be tuning in.

And we doubt there will be a dry eye in the house.
