Watching the Rose Bowl Parade. Starts with LeAnn Rimes singing about putting her arms around the world, and then transitioning directly into a stealth bomber fly-by to the sound of police sirens. Ah, America!

If I’d known LeAnn was kicking off the Rose Parade I woulda skipped the beginning. 🤢

@RoseParade couldn't even understand LeAnn Rimes. So much echo and music was louder than her. Very disappointed 😞
