Christina Aguilera was chosen to sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl 45. How hard can that be? Apparently for Christina Aguilera it was very hard.
Apparently, Christina Aguilera got too involved in her performance to notice that the line is not, “What so proudly we watched at the twilight’s last gleaming.” See the video below for her failed national anthem attempt.
The line Christina Aguilera erred on was, “O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming.” According to a statement released by the singer, her Super Bowl flub was due to the gravity of the movement.
I agree with TamSlick on this one:
Seriously, how do you not know the lyrics to the national anthem? That’s like flubbing "Mary Had A Little Lamb" or "Twinkle Twinkle"…
Heat of the moment or not, you do not screw up the National Anthem of all songs, its just not done. No Excuses.
Christina Aguilera has now joined the many other celebrities who have fudged the National Anthem in one way or another.
