While some are viciously attacking him for what they consider "Butchering the National Anthem"- Bleached Report, or even calling it "More obscene than Janet Jackson's [expletive]", many fans are defending him saying that although he didn't sound as great, he had definitely given his best shot at it.

"A very hard song to sing. He pretty much sang it in typical Steve Tyler fashion," commented Hen24 for the performance.

Some media outlets were reporting boos for his performance but according to Karen Struffolino in Rossford, Ohio, "I didn't hear any boos wasn't the greatest I have heard but it really wasn't that bad."
