    @Mannul

    first off you must like that screaming bullshit that shouldnt even be called music AND YOU KNOW IT!!!!!!!!

    why the hell would they have some rocker or metal band screaming America The Beautiful???????????? comeon now use your head
    why would Vince attempt to disgrace this country and maybe even heve it all over the news????? I can see it now:

    Vince has some rock or metal band perform our nations heart and soul and then not too much long after the news criticizes Vinny for ruining America the Beautiful……. and ruin a bit of WWE rep…..
    i mean look at Aguilera when she sang at the Super Bowl… she became the talk of the whole U.S. and the enemy of everyone who loves this country and what it stands for…. not my own words so dont come huntin me down Christina…..
    Im not saying this as a WWE fan, well i am a little but im saying thia as a proud AMERICAN AND U.S. CITIZEN IF VINCE WERE TO GET A ROCK OR METAL BAND HE WOULD BE PRETTY MUCH SLAPPING OUR GREAT COUNTRY IN THE FACE!!!!!!! HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO class of 2011 inductee!!!!! he finally made it hahaha waaaaay off topic lol

    Just because Taylor Swift and Lady GaGa and whoever else said no, does not mean you can diss Hip-Hop and R&B. Keri Hilson is very talented and is a very good singer live and will no doubt give a very good rendition to America the Beautiful.

    Because boring, old any kind of artist will do it for $50, gotta cut costs

  • Mannul

    Why don’t they get musicians that will bring excitment,instead of boring old r&b and hip hop artists?
