Christina Aguilera’s performance had the internet all abuzz last night when she flubbed the lyrics of the national anthem at the Super Bowl. Less than a minute into the song, Christina had a little hiccup…instead of singing “O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming” she improvised “What so proudly we watched at the twilight’s last reaming.” We have to hand it to the songstress, she continued on, belting out the correct lyrics all the way through her 11-second-long note at the end of the song.
The singer released a statement regarding the performance:
“I got so caught up in the moment of the song that I lost my place. I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through.”
