Lyric Malfunction

Christina Aguilera Flubs National Anthem

Pop princess Christina Aguilera added to the growing list of Super Bowl entertainment debacles by forgetting the lyrics to the Star Spangled Banner at the NFL final on Sunday, reports the Washington Post.
 
The singer was doing all right until she substituted "O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming," with a variation on the earlier "What so proudly we hailed" line, singing: "What so proudly we watched at the twilight's last gleaming." (The Guardian reports it as "twilight's last reaming.")
 
Aguilera explained her mistake in a statement: "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."
