Then I started watching the other celebs singing the song at various games. Mariah and Whitney were pre recorded, but Whitney is a drag queen so she gives a better lipsynch than the less expressive Mariah. Beyonce sounded better than I'd imagined, Jo-Jo should have been pre-recorded and is the perfect example of the kind of riffing I hate where they try to hit every note on the scale within every note. I didn't watch Christina's version since this is her trademark, but at least she does it better than Jo-Jo. Fantasia's version does not seem to be pre-recorded and I think she says"lamparts" instead of "ramparts" and "led" glare instead of "red", but honey, she makes you fee every note in that worn out tune from 1814, which, though short, is a really hard one to sing.

Completely unrelated, but were you at Guvernment in Toronto for the closing party with Peter Rauhofer? I know you were there in Toronto performing for Pride, but my friend swears he saw you around 5 am, and I was like honey, give me some of whatever you took, cuz you are really hallucinating.

Maya Rudolph is fuckin' fantastic. SHE makes anything she's in a lot funnier. Why don't Lorne Michaels and/or NBC give her her own show? Even something just for the summer?
