(WXYZ) - It probably wasn’t a performance that would get him a “golden ticket” to Hollywood.
If you were watching the AFC National Championship Sunday, you likely turned your head for the singing of the National Anthem.
Legendary rocker and American Idol judge Steven Tyler was called on for the task and found himself on the receiving end of some harsh criticism, with many people wondering how he got the gig.
True, Tyler did mess up the words (“as bombs bursting in air”) and slurred through some of them (“oh the land of the free”), but was it really that bad?
ESPN analyst Skip Bayless thought so. He tweeted: "How could Patriots be inspired by that awful Anthem sung by Steven Tyler? At least give him some screaming guitars to camouflage voice."
Despite the social media frenzy of complaints, many people have come to his defense saying the 63-year-old Aerosmith frontman sounded, basically, like you’d expect him to sound.
