There’s no question that [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Christina Aguilera [/lastfm]can sing. But can she sing the right words at the right time? Last night she butchered our national anthem. Today Christina explained what happened.
Usually when things like this happen, it’s a few days before anyone come out to say what happened or what they were thinking! Not X-Tina… she wanted to let fans and critics know what was going on. She said, “I got so lost in the moment of the song that I lost my place,” stated the pop singer. “I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of it’s anthem still came through.”
Did you catch the mistake? She was supposed to sing, “O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming,” she said the line twice and , “What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming,” changing the word “hailed” to “watched.”
Ok, now’s your turn to weigh in? Was it a really bad mess up or was it just that it was a really bad place to mess up the song, in front of millions of football fans worldwide! Check out X-Tina performing the National Anthem before the right way….
See, girlfriend knows the words. She just got wrapped up in it all. Better luck next time.
