While her singing was great, Christina Aguilera messed up the actual lyrics to The Star-Spangled Banner at this years Super Bowl, a fact that she says has left her “devastated.”
Aguilera’s issue came when she sang:
“O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming” where she instead sang “What so proudly we watched at the twilight’s last gleaming…”
It’s not that Aguilera didn’t know the lyrics, she sang them perfectly during two NBC Finals games last year, perhaps standing on the largest sports stage of the year left her nervous or caught up in the moment.
It’s an unfortunate incident, but we all screw up, hopefully the tabloids that keep attacking her over this mistake realize they make mistakes all the time when they report various stories as well and they aren’t on a worldwide stage performing live.
