    Default Christina Aguilera flubs the National Anthem

    Christina flubs the National Anthem

    SuperBowl 45

    From Wikipedia:
    Throughout her youth in Pittsburgh, Aguilera sang "The Star-Spangled Banner" before Pittsburgh Penguins hockey, Pittsburgh Steelers football and Pittsburgh Pirates baseball games, including during the 1992 Stanley Cup Finals.

    The Star-Spangled Banner

    O! say can you see by the dawn's early light,
    What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming,
    Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
    O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
    And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
    Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;
    O! say does that star-spangled banner yet wave,
    O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

    (The rest of the National Anthem that is not normally sung in public)....

    On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
    Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
    What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
    As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
    Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
    In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
    'Tis the star-spangled banner, O! long may it wave
    O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

    And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
    That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
    A home and a country should leave us no more!
    Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
    No refuge could save the hireling and slave
    From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
    And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
    O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

    O! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
    Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
    Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
    Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
    Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
    And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
    And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
    O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

    I was surprised she fucked it up. Not like it was important or anything, or that it was in front of the biggest audience she has ever had.
    I don't care what anyone says as far as being under pressure or whatever, she has no real good excuse for flubbing it, not to mention she over sings every friggin' word of the song. Aside from the game all of the entertainment sucked, from Christina right to the half time bullshit.

    She oversings everything to begin with, then she messes up the words.

    That was really bad.

    I thought she sounded like she was in pain. Are we sure it wasn't that girl from Saturday Night Live that used to imitate her because she was really that bad.

    Someone I know said the over-singing was like someone shoved Yngwie Malmsteen down her throat. I thought that was a pretty good comment.

    I'm just waiting for someone to actually sing the anthem THE WAY IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE SUNG at a national event.

    We're all bagging on Christina, rightfully so, but the chick from Glee was probably even worse than she was, and that's saying a lot right now

    Whitney Houston did the best version I've ever heard.
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

    Should have got Susan Boyle to do it. She would have sung it properly and probably given us all chills.

    I don't get how someone who is a professional-allegedly-could not know the lyrics to a song she's supposed to sing. I'm far from one, yet I know the lines. Wouldn't it be like an actor going on stage/set and not knowing the lines? I get a kid freezing and messing up since it is her first time and she's nervous-like the one from Portland and the coach went out and helped her (which is still a classy move on his part)-but come on, this isn't your first rodeo!!! Sure, it is the largest stage you've ever been on and you don't have any synthesizers or other musical equipment to cover up your obvious lack of talent, but at least get the freaking words right!!!

    Yep, just Googled it.

    Was a pre-recorded track. Still an awesome version.
