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.
