Pop star Christina Aguilera was tapped to sing the U.S. National Anthem at last night’s Super Bowl XLV Game, but no one expected her to forget the lyrics. Aguilera was supposed to sing the line “O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming,” but instead repeated an earlier line, with a slight change of words: “What so proudly we watched at the twilight’s last reaming,” Ouch!
The singer issued a statement saying: “I got so lost in the moment of the song that I lost my place. I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through”.
I could’ve look past the lyrical flub, if it wasn’t for all the screeching strains & pitchyness. #Imjustsaying. You would think at this point in her career, Aguilera would know her vocal limits.
