    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.
