We had a contest at the National Museum of American History...

... and people could upload their YouTube videos for our Sing the National Anthem Contest. Well, Sadie has her favorite, and I have mine. This is Alex Fischbach (age 14) and......

He. Is. Awesome!

Here is why I like him: He's just standin' there like a little punk teenager you would see at the mall. Like, "What's up? I'm Alex, and I probably egged your car last Halloween." Then he starts singing. And... Wow. Awesomeness.

Here's what they win: The Grand Prize winner will be invited to perform the national anthem at the Museum in Washington, D.C. and at the Baltimore Orioles vs. Atlanta Braves game, both on Flag Day (June 14, 2009). The prize, made possible by Grand Blanc Travel, includes a trip for two to Washington, D.C., including airfare; tickets and transportation to a Baltimore Orioles baseball game; and $400 in spending money. Three nights lodging will be provided by JW Marriott Washington, D.C., a luxury hotel located on Pennsylvania Avenue within walking distance to the White House, the National Mall, the National Museum of American History, and a myriad of dining and shopping destinations.

Judges for this round include: pop singer-songwriter, DeLyn; international, Grammy Award-winning guitarist and singer, José Feliciano; jazz keyboardist, composer, and producer, Marcus Johnson; and pop singer-songwriter and winner of the sixth season of TV’s "American Idol," Jordin Sparks. They'll announce the winner on May 19th!
