Most of the anthem talk heading into Game 3 of the NBA Finals was surrounding Metallica, and their acoustic guitar version of the Star Spangled Banner.
But we’ve heard that before.

What most people weren’t ready for was Tenille Arts’ rendition of O Canada.
The Canadian country music singer got all the words right, but added some twang and extra flare to parts of the anthem that people aren’t used to. It was met with mixed reactions.

While Americans seem to enjoy different takes on their anthem, adding personal touch to O Canada is typically met with criticism north of the border.
O Canada was trending on Twitter during the first quarter. Here’s a sample of what people were saying:

Outstanding Metallica Star Spangled Banner, not so much O Canada. The young woman needs to work on her pace
