Every morning at 6am we bust with Francis Scott Key's biggest hit.

Today we go halfway around the world and find Japanese pop star Koyanagi Yuki bringing some of that engrish we love so much to the party.

Are we projecting when we think we see players trying to hold back from cringing?

We have all seen this song bring actual American singers to their knees, it's amazing to see what it does to a foreign language lass take a crack at it.
