Super Bowl 2011 National Anthem

Brieanna Brock 02/06/2011 Features, Reviews

One thing is for sure, at least we know she sang it live right?!  No lip-singing, maybe she should have.

The National Anthem at the Super Bowl is typically pre-recorded, but Christina Aguilera chose to sing it live for the Packers vs. Steelers game today.  She probably shouldn’t have. Yes, Aguilera messed up the lyrics to “The Star-Spangled Banner,” singing “what so proudly we watched” instead of the correct words, “o’er the ramparts we watched.”

Really?!  During the Super Bowl 2011, Way to go girl!  WHOA!

Oops.

It’s the Super Bowl. They couldn’t have hooked her up with a prompter?

This is Aguilera’s second time performing at a Super Bowl – in 2000, she was part of the halftime show, where she performed a duet with Enrique Iglesias. She sang all the correct lyrics that time.
How about Lea Michele’s “America the Beautiful”?

What are your feelings on this?  We want to know what you thought of her performance.  Comment below.

    I can't believe she screwed it up! What a Dummy! Instead of focusing on her voice she should focus on the song.

    to be honest,I kind of like her..and that's one of the hardest songs to sing..I think she got so caught up in trying to showboat with all the voice inflections she forgot the lyrics..shes not the first and she wont be the last..that being said..she has an amazing voice and this should have been a song that she could have easily nailed..had she just kept it simple.

      The notes you have to hit are difficult but everyone should know the words.

    Wow! Thats all that needs to be said!

    What a doofus. I don't care how hard it is. It's her job. The one single thing she was supposed to do right. FAIL!

    I think she has a beautiful voice and I love her but definetly a fail. She chose to do it live and should of had the words right. It's our national anthem. It's a song that would be hard for anyone to sing and probably the most "nervous" type of song to sing, but it's one of the most important songs not to screw up. She gets paid the big bucks to sing it right!

    Between her faux pas, and the mugging, er, interview of our president in the pre-game show by Bill O'Reilly it was a bit ugly. Maybe next time Ms. (G)Aguilera should consentrate more on the words and less on the cliche' diva vocal flourishes. Good game in the end though.

    It's going to take her some time to live it down but since she's not crazy like Brittney Spears I'm sure she will eventually.

    I agree! She will be fine. =)
