This is first time i have heard Josh's music and i feel it is just like a wall art in a museum.

Josh's music is like artwork in a museum. So full of life and soul!!

I watched this at London bars it was a great peformance

Bravo! Josh. I loved your great performance.

Congrats!!!!! You nailed it just like I know you would. You were amazing and unbelievable! If I was there I would run to you and give you a BIIIIIIGGGG hug and TONS of kisses and never let you go. Let’s run away……anywhere, but here. Sweeney you’re going with us. ;P I’m being silly Joshua, just got caught in a moment. So anyway that was a great game. I thought toward the end that the east was going to win. Pheeeewww!!!! That was a close call. Do you like L.A. Dodgers? I love you! MUAH!

You honored us. :) Thank you.

And no alternate patriotic lyrics, great job on remembering!

Josh,
Thank you so much for doing such and outstanding job with our National Anthem. It was an amazing tribute to our wondeful country. It brought tears to my eyes thinking of all of our soldiers, my husband included, who have given and are giving so much to our country. It should NEVER be sung in a way to discrace them or our country.

Thank you again.

An All Star singing at the All Stars. Performed with perfection and right from the heart. Put chills up my spine.

Bravo!

Aguilera is my top female vocalist w/C. Dion, so her gig was unfortunate----however, Groban Never disappoints. He's a hard act for Himself to Follow. Great anthemn best Ever.

That was so beautiful Josh, so simple yet so uplifting. Thank You!

*BIG HUGS*

Finally a rendition of the National Anthem, as it was written. No Flash, No Gimmicks, Just Au Natural! Your A Cappella version, reeled in the NBA audience, hook, line & sinker, and then thrown in the bait box! You received a standing ovation! Bravo, Joshua! :D :) DJ

After two hours of Pandora and an eventual excruciating headache on top of everything else, I finally put in your CD and it was like coming home after a horrible day.
I just wanted to see how your anthem went since I wasn't able to see that at least.

You were absolutely wonderful singing the National Anthem tonight!!!Nothing fancy -just the way it should be sung. But your voice is SOOOOOOOOO excellent!! When are you coming back to Pittsburgh, PA????

I agree with the others; I haven't enjoyed anyone sing our National Anthem for a long time with the exception of Josh. I may sound corny, but there are some songs that should not be "Stylized" especially when the melody and integrity of the music is at stake. Even singing a cappella , Josh remained true to the song and what it stands for. Aren't we , his fans lucky to be able to enjoy a REAL artist. Anyhow, Good Going Josh and Happy Birthday in advance. John aka Changojoni

You did an awesome job as usual Josh. I like the anthems when they are sung in the manner in which they were originally sang (and of course the right words :)). High 5 Josh!!

That was awesome! As usual, brought tears to my eyes as hearing our National Anthem should at least stir up emotion in American citizens. When it is performed as it was meant to be performed, and with a voice like an angel... wow, actually makes me cry. Great job Josh! See you in Dallas in May!

Perfection, you sang it with dignity and the way the Anthem should be sung... kudos! and love your name on the door, should be gold plated, but ok, it works...

Josh U rock! I knew you would do great on the anthem. You represent America with class!

Josh Groban will not mess up the Anthem :D
He will do great <3

Good luck with the National Anthem tonight!

So looking forward to seeing and hearing you. Going to be a truly beautiful rendition of our anthem, thank you.
See you in Moline!!!!Wheeeeeee

Good luck tonight Josh -- it will be amazing, I'm sure!

Finally we get to hear the Anthem the way it should be presented, with dignity, class, and feeling. So many have butchered the song with their own twist... No twist needed when it comes to the National Anthem.... JG you know class and dignity.... bring it on!

whootttt im so excited. i wasnt 100% sure if i was gonna watch it....but needless to say, now im 100% gonna watch it! <3

Love and hugs from one of your biggest fans. cheryl kaplan Columbus, Ohio please come here I will probably come if your tour prices are not to expensive I am retired and have MS but please come to Columbus your best concert was at the Ohio Theatre it was on my birthday April 12 and last I want to wish you a Happy 30th birthday next Sunday

Dear Josh, please come to sing for us here in Brazil (Sao Paulo). I simply loved the music "Você existe em mim"!!! My husband loved too!

Hola guapo.! será grandioso escucharte!

GRANDIOSO SERA ESCUCHAR A JOSH EN ESTE EVENTO Y SEGURO QUE SERA UN PLACER A NUESTROS OIDOS ESCUCHAR ESTA HERMOSA VOZ.

MEXICO TE QUIERE

wont miss it!!! :)

I don't care how many people sing the NA, over all the years I've heard people sing it, NOBODY does it better than Josh. I don't care what kind of music you like, from hard rock to classical, NOBODY does it better than Josh, and there ain't (excuse my Southern) one person in this world who can take that away from you Josh. I can't wait to hear it again!

Josh, you sing our National Anthem better than anyone I have ever heard. I can't wait to hear you sing it again. YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!!

Once I watched a video in which Josh was singing the National Anthem. President Bush was in it and other politics. I am not american, but Josh singing the Anthem at that place touched my heart so deeply as any other singer did. Surely I am going to watch it. Thanks Josh!

You can bet I will be watching!!!! YUP! At least there WILL be a singer who knows what he is singing and does it the BEST of anyone!!!!!!

Amen! I hoped the National Anthem would be sung respectfully and beautifully at the Super Bowl. Then she opened her mouth and I buried my face in my hands. For a change I had to agree with my family. My first comment when she was finished: Why wasn't Josh asked to sing? He loves football. He would never have sung the National Anthem like that and certainly would not have missed some of the lyrics. So when I saw that Josh was singing at the NBA All Star Game I was so thrilled.

Josh will be in a win win situation. He gets to see the game, probably mingle with the players a bit and show the world what the National Anthem really sounds like.

Don`t worry Joshua, we`re all only human.
You`ll make it.

TOI TOI TOI, as we say in Germany...

Take care :)

Also, nobody can sing God Bless America like Josh does.
Already said this on another Josh Groban fan site, but it should be against the law to even try. The NTA is too hard for anybody but Josh to sing WELL. Really crazy.

Good luck with the anthem, Josh! We know you'll sing it beautifully... and is there any chance of you adding a quick 'Happy Birthday Amy' on the end? :D xxx

Don't like basketball, but love Josh, so will watch the opening for sure.

YAY! In case you miss any lines, watch my little one's singing. Just kidding.

Definitely will watch the game!!

I love basketball, but I love more to listen to you singing the American Anthem.

YAY! That is SUPER! He sang this song for the Alabama/Texas football game and it was beautiful! I almost fell off my seat when I saw that was singing for that game! I am so excited to hear him sing it again!
I know he will do great! It is a fun...but hard song to sing. But, if anyone can do it, I know that Josh can!

at least usa will be secure in the knowledge that josh will sing the correct words

Thumbs uppppp!!!!!

Nice- what fantastic coverage! I look forward to tuning in to your performance circa Feb. 20. Let Freedom Ring!!!

sweet!

sweet!
