Christina Aguilera Makes National Anthem Error During 2010 Super Bowl XLV (Video)

Not football related, well not as we know it, but amusing and interesting nonetheless.

Christina Aguilera fluffed a line of the Star-Spangled banner as she belted out a version of the US national anthem to open Sunday’s Super Bowl in Texas.

The singer, 30, should have sung: “O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?” but repeated an earlier line with a slight variation.

She sang: “What so proudly we watched at the twilight’s last gleaming.”

The anthem is one of the set piece events of the glittering Super Bowl pre-game ceremony.

Aguilera’s mistake immediately set social networks abuzz with chatter. Her representative could not immediately be reached for comment. (BBC Sport)

So there you have it, a publicity stunt? A genuine error? Either way it seems that Christina Aguilera has become public enemy number one in the US. Here is the moment she got the lines wrong.

Christina Aguilera Tweets her reaction to other’s reaction. Harsh?
