Christina Aguilera: Idiot

By Wyatt Earp | February 7, 2011

Pop star and resident skank Christina Aguilera performed the National Anthem during last night’s Super Bowl. Well, “performed” is a relative term, since she botched the lyrics.

The biggest moment any singer can ask for: “The Star Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl. And Christina Aguilera messed up the lyrics.

At about 51 seconds in, as she was about to sing the fourth line (“O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming”), she accidentally sang a hybrid of the second line: “What so proudly we watched, at the twilight’s last streaming.”

If you’re asked to sing the National Anthem on a worldwide stage, wouldn’t you think you’d at least familiarize yourself with the words?

Way to go, Christina. You’re a credit to your country. The video is at the link.

    That’s another possibility.

    I read about this on the Guardian’s website. The GUARDIAN! A BRITISH news site!
    If the whole world isn’t laughing at us, they’re not paying attention.

    Stay safe

    She’s from the Pittsburgh area….she jinxed the Steelers. I think she screwed up because she was afraid Big Ben would come out and grab her.

    And yes, I know, my Steelers lost. Hines Ward feels terrible about it, he said so on Facebook. I just hope I’m able to watch the games next season!!!

    JT – I miss Leslie Nielsen.

    Orchid – Like a cat trapped in a garbage disposal. And thanks for the tip on Fat Eddie. I’ll tackle that tomorrow.

    LDIV – Her only talent is whoring, in my opinion.

    JT/Orchid – Maybe it’s both? Bad vision and illiteracy.

    Lergnom – And plenty of people idolize this chick. Scary.

    GroovyVic – Well, if he feels terrible, then all is forgiven.

    Old NFO – And she redefines the term.

    Rick – Half-witted? That’s giving her too much credit.

    Hey NFL… I’ve got an idea, Skip the overblown, drawn out halftime show and find an artist to sing “THE ANTHEM” without screwing up the lyrics and STAYING ON KEY. Thank You.

    I’ve been saying it bunches of places: Billy Joel did an awesome job at SB XLI. He sang the notes. He sang the words. Bravo, sir. Bravo.

    She shouldn’t be cut any slack. She’s a “pro” and you can put that in any context you like. (snark)

    The girl from Glee that sang America the Beautiful did a terrific job. Get her to sing the Anthem next time.

    DR – True enough.

    Roger – I turned off the TV at halftime. The Black Eyed Peas suck.

    Picky – Agreed. And while I’m not a fan. Whitney Houston did a terrific job a few years ago, too.

    JT – Hall of Shame performances.

    MeToo – She’s definitely a hard working girl.

    Ingineer66 – I’d have no problem with that.
