Christina Aguilera National Anthem Disaster

It is a very much awaited event to watch the opening of the Super Bowl every year and it is a great honor for every performer to be chosen to sing the American National Anthem not mentioning the huge pay for the singer's talent fee. 

This Year the 30-year-old singer Christina Aguilera (who is not new into singing the National Anthem for many sports opening event) sang The Star-Spangled Banner for the 2011 Super Bowl Game in front of the many live viewers and fans from around the world. Aguilera was really amazing hitting the right notes from the beginning but unfortunately disappointing and sad that she forgot the lyrics and messed up the lines of the great American National Anthem. 

Aguilera did not sing the 4th line of the song which is supposed to be O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming? and instead repeated the second line "what so proudly we was at the twilight's last gleaming" which is the pseudo-repeat of the 2nd line of the lyrics.


Oh, 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 thru the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air

Talking about singing not from the heart, I feel sorry for the fans who expect a lot from their idol. I hope this won't affect Christina's career as one of the favorite artist to sing the National Anthem for the coming years.
