Lee DeWyze To Sing National Anthem At NBA Finals

Lee DeWyze To Sing National Anthem At NBA Finals

Lee DeWyze will sing the national anthem at the NBA finals this Sunday night, joining every past Idol winner (besides Fantasia – hey, what gives?) who has been invited to perform “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the sports event since 2004. To be honest, we’re not particularly sure the Season 9 champ will be able to pull off a vocally challenging song like the national anthem—he wasn’t exactly known to be a consistent live performer during his run on the show—but we’re willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, especially since he impressed us with his non-purchaseable cover of “Beautiful Day”.

After the jump, check out a mash-up vid of several of the Idol winners belting out the national anthem at various sporting events to see just what Lee’s up against.
