Default America The Beautiful

Jon is doing a new video version of America The Beautiful 2011. From the pics I've seen, it looks very similar to the 2001 version. I didn't see Richie. No word on the vocals though.

The video will air Saturday on NBC EST between 8 and 9 PM (I believe)

Anyone with more info?

I wonder if he needed a teleprompter for the lyrics.

He sang it well, but lip synched to playback on the video footage. That part was kind of weak. But a nice tribute, nonetheless.

It was a little weak. What a difference 10 years can make. He recycled the vocals and the performance lacked the passion. However, The cause and heart were in the right place!!!!!

All they did was use the 2001 vocal, minus Richie.

Jon & Richie lip synched 10 years ago, so I pretty much expected that Jon would be doing that again this time. I didn't expect him to just use a re-edit of the same audio, though. IMO, the mood of the performance wasn't appropriate to either the audio or the occasion.
