Happy 4th July! Which diva sang the US anthem best?

Happy Independence Day to all our US visitors!  We are big fans of the Star Spangled Banner and a number American’s finest divas have taken on the tricky number at the annual Superbowl final.  From Cher to Beyonce, Christina to Lady Gaga, each have delivered their own unique take on the US National Anthem with some being applauded and others derided.  We think it’s a tough song to sing, especially with an audience of over 100 million watching at home, on top of a packed stadium of fans and we salute all the divas who’ve taken up the mic.

We’ve picked 10 of our favourite divas who have performed the Star Spangled Banner at Superbowl and now we want to know which one you think delivered the best rendition, so get voting. You can remind yourself of their performances below.
