What is behind the "worst anthem of all time"? The angry singer explains - voila! sport


Eleanor, a 28-year-old American-Italian, received the honor and was supposed to sing the British national anthem before the match against Italy - but everything went wrong: "It's not my fault, there were sound problems"

Summary: Italy - England 2:1 (Sport1)

The meeting between the England and Italy national teams promised a lot and it also took place last night (Thursday), when the Three Lions team opened the qualifying campaign with a 1:2 win over the regional team, in a replay of the Euro final.

But it turns out that one of the most dramatic moments in the game took place precisely before the opening whistle - with the British national anthem.


The one who received the honor and stepped up to the microphone in the stadium in Naples was Eleanora, an American-Italian singer, who did a job - well, nothing short of miserable.

The network has already crowned this performance as the worst of all time, which forced Eleanor to issue an apology.

"I'm so angry," said the 28-year-old singer.

"I wanted it to be perfect, but it's not my fault. I want to apologize to all the England fans in the stadium and those watching the game on TV. I'm horrified by what happened and want people to know that I didn't mean to be disrespectful. It was a huge honor for me to be asked to sing the anthem, I was so excited . I've never sung anything like that before. I'm usually a pop singer."


So what went wrong?

According to her, "There were sound problems in the stadium. I rehearsed, but in the game itself, I had a problem with the headphones. The music in my ear started, then stopped, then started again, and I heard it twice. It threw me off the rhythm and it was hard for me to get back. I tried to solve the problem , but I couldn't do anything. I'm so angry."

Eleanor added, saying: "It's really upsetting, the fans are right to be angry, I'm angry too, but it was out of my hands. I wanted to do everything I could to make England proud. Instead, there was a mistake. The whole thing cost me €3,000, I was I have to fly from the United States, I financed it myself. I plan to sing the anthem in a recording studio and then publish the part on social networks, and I want to apologize again."
