Once again, the entire Philippines watch another epic fight between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley.

 Thank God, the People’s Champ won!

Aside from the exchange of fists and fury, all eyes were also on the two lovely ladies who were tasked to sing the national anthem of the USA and the Philippines.

Ashanti sang the Star Spangled Banner while Jessica Sanchez sang the Lupang Hinirang.

Did Jessica Sanchez give justice to our national anthem? Was it fab or flop?

Let’s see how the netizens reacted to her performance.

Let’s view her performance again, shall we?

The netizens overall verdict: FAB! Sanchez scored 20 out of 30.

My personal verdict: FAB! Her voice was great but some of her word pronunciation needs improvement.

After all, she does not speak fluent Filipino so it’s understandable why she had some difficulty in pronouncing some Filipino words.

I liked her rendition. It’s like hearing a rock version of the national anthem.

How about you? What do you think about her performance?
