    Excellent - and even better that it DIDN'T include the usual vocal gymnastics - (and I'm and Aussie).

    Okay, here's my thoughts.

    It's an awesome arrangement. I absolutely love it, and it comes together beautifully.

    OTOH, they're playing the national anthem and instead of highlighting the artistic arrangement, the beauty of the original piece, and patriotism, it comes off to me as zOMG HIGH NOTES. To me, it's worth weighing if you're trying to honor your country or if you're just trying to show off.
