And You're Judging Other People Singing ???
After 62 years of living like ... well, like Steven Tyler, Aerosmith frontman and newly appointed "American Idol" judge Steven Tyler's voice sounds like that of an alley cat with strep throat after a Novocain injection. This works well when mixed in with crunching guitars and thumping bass at a stadium concert; not so much in the exposed vocal challenge that is the National Anthem.
Remember: This man will be sitting in judgment of others' singing abilities on national television. Watch fan-shot videos of this epic performance here and here and here and here. There's also a video of Tyler later in the game, riding a motorcycle on the ice for a giveaway and receiving a mixed reaction when the crowd was asked about his anthem performance.
