Christina Aguilera Flubbed a Line in “The Star Spangled Banner”
I have to say…My heart goes out to her! She is a fabulous vocalist and actress! And she certainly has proven herself a million times over. A split second mess up and the wrong thing came out of her mouth. She had no choice but to keep going. Poor thing! I’m sure she feels awful! I am, however suprised at the people willing to ridicule her so harshly. We all make mistakes…I’m just sayin’!!
Other than the halftime show, the biggest Super Bowl moment any singer can ask for is The National Anthem. And CHRISTINA AGUILERA messed it up.
–About 40 seconds in, she was about to sing the fourth line of the song, which goes, quote, “O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming.”
–Instead, she sang, quote, “What so proudly we watched, at the twilight’s last reaming.” (???)
–Which is sort of like a hybrid version of the correct line and the second line of the song, which goes, quote, “What so proudly we hail’d at the twilight’s last gleaming?” Since it’s similar, but sort of confusing, it didn’t seem like anyone really noticed.
–Afterwards, Christina said she just got caught up in the moment . . . quote, “I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through.”
–Obviously it can happen to any singer . . . and it does all the time . . . but Christina DID sing it correctly at Game 7 of the NBA finals last June.
