Pia Toscano sang the National Anthem at the final NASCAR race of the season in Homestead Florida yesterday (Nov. 20).

The Season 10 Idol alum does a beautiful, straightforward version of the song. Watch and listen below.

    That was great! And, wow, she looks so much better without the silly part in the middle of her hair.

    Great job by Pia – none of that overripe melisma that too many singers indulge in.  Looks great, too.

    *claps* for both the performance and that the parting of the red sea hairline is gone!

    Hey, I watched the NASCAR race yesterday and was really proud of Pia – she did a great job and looked great.  Quite an honor for her to sing in the last race of the season – it was a really good race too!

    I like my anthem clean.  No big trills or weird instrumentation.  Pia did it just right.  That girl can really sing!

    Hey, Pia is a great li’l singer here.  After watching JLo’s very mediocre performance on the AMA’s last night, as well as Katy Perry’s, I tried to envision a Pia performance on the same show.  I definitely think Pia could have held her own with either of them.  I really enjoyed her rendition of the NA.

    Pia sang the anthem very well.  She’s always like a pro singing live.  I could tell the loud planes was distracting and making her a bit nervous as it was making me just looking at it.
