It is one thing to make a mistake. But to make a mistake while singing our nation’s anthem for the biggest TV audience of the year, is a completely different story. This past Sunday night, Christina Aguilera messed up a few lines of the national anthem before the kick off of the Superbowl game.
Instead of singing “O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming” she improvised and said “What so proudly we watched at the twilight’s last reaming.” When the cameras panned to the players, it was clear that some looked confused as they looked at each other. However, I have to say- Aguilera was quite professional and didn’t skip a beat while finishing the song without hesitation or mistake. On her end, anyone could have made the same mistake. I’m sure her nerves overtook her.
