    Cactus Cuties

    Cowboy's Stadium

    These girls are 8 to 13 years old and give a few pros a run for their money. They may not be singing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl but their harmonies could have them there soon. Eat your heart out Steven Tyler. Getting show up by a bunch of kids.

    Carrie Underwood

    Super Bowl XLIV

    Carrie Underwood is one American Idol who did remember the words to the song during her stunning rendition at the Super Bowl in 2010. She should have given Steven Tyler a few pointers before they get together for their CMT Crossroads set to air the day before the Super Bowl.

    Martina McBride

    2009 AFC Championship Game

    Martina McBride has sang the National Anthem a number of times, but never at a Super Bowl. She did blow everyone away at the 2009 AFC Game between the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers. Maybe they'll consider her in the future.

    Dixie Chicks

    Super Bowl XXXVII

    Ironically the Dixie Chicks killed The Star Spangled Banner with their harmonies at the 2003 Super Bowl. And just months later were apologizing on a London stage for their comments about former President George W Bush. The rest, as they say, is history. Those girls should have stuck to singing.

    Whitney Houston

    Super Bowl XXV

    Whitney Houston gave one of the best performances of the National Anthem in history for the 1991 Super Bowl. Speaking of someone who should have stuck to singing. Where is Whitney now?
