Sorry, did anyone catch the inept and horrible pitch correction during the national anthem?  Wow.

Yep, if I was Billy I'll gonna kill someone for that.
Worse than any wrong note could be.

Apart from missing several notes in his solo?

Amazingly, the guitar did it for him.  Laughing

That or the tracks he was miming to.  Rolling Eyes

Wonder why the anthem was so awful if it was playback?

honestly, it sucks for him cause he's the one that gets stuck with the blame.  but don't you think there is a chance he had no clue AT was being used.  and perhaps if he did know, perhaps the operator should be to blame for setting it up so poorly.

lets be honest here......does billy joel really need AT?

even if he is a bit pitchy........he's Billy F'ing Joel.  6 time grammy winner and a rock n roll hall of famer.  that alone will make people over look a few pitch problems.

lets also not forget the event we are talking about.  FOOTBALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

you think the fans were real worried about his performance.

it was a lot of "hurry up old man, lets get to the game!!!!!"

dag...   that sucks.   I doubt that Billy knew anything about it when he was there doing it.   But wow, I bet he sure is pissed now.   Why does he need AT anyway?

Maybe somebody hates him Very Happy it sounded to me as if the autotune was NOT IN TUNE WITH THE PIANO.  Shocked

It sounded like the vocal was being forced sharp to the piano, constantly.

Eek Very Happy
