Christina Aguilera Messes Up The Lyrics To The National Anthem At The Super Bowl!

| Filed under: Christina AguileraZportz


At least she sang live!!!

Christina Aguilera completely flubbed the Star Spangled Banner at the Super Bowl on Sunday.

She was probably just very nervous, you know - with tens of millions of people watching worldwide!

Xtina forgot to sing "O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming? and was so frazzled that she sang "What so proudly we watched at the twilight's last reaming?" in its place.

The correct and complete lyrics are as follows:

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,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

We think that's the last time in a while any singer is gonna do the National Anthem live!

Poor Christina!

    I'm Canadian so I don't know the lyrics anyway, but props to her for singing live.

  2. 2

    SHE DID IT AMAZING!!!… Perez, go look for a life please!!!

  3. 3

    Oops, but at least she sounded great.

  4. 4

    well done xtina !

  5. 5

    And yet if it were Lady Gaga you'd be saying it was "creative embellishment"…

  6. 6

    Love her. But that was terrible. Even the vocals were everywhere….

  7. 7

    horrible rendition….first fumble of the super bowl, i'd say.

  8. 8

    Shit happens. She sounded pretty good tho, so you go sister keep SANGING.

  9. 9

    Really not that big of a deal. She sounded great!

  10. 10

    she seriously screamed the high notes, wtf?

  11. 11

    Sucked. She's an american and can't sing the lyrics? You'd think she would have least learned them. I think she should just retire now!

  12. 12

    Yikes, they should have had Martina McBride sing the anthem. Poor Christina =(

  13. 13

    I kew perez would have this on his website instantly … has to be the biggest chritina hater out there … what if gaga messed up the lyrics ? you be all oh she was so over worked and not ready to perform .. stop hating on xtina

  14. EMJ3 says – reply to this


    Its her job…. I'm sure she gets all the lyrics to her songs right when she has a concert. Not too much to ask to get our NATIONAL Anthem right. Oy.

  15. 15

    GOD she was horrible…I'm embarresed to be born and raised in TX and say we actually paid her to come down here. She should'nt of tried to show of with our nations anthem. Perez, don't try to say that singers shouldnt do it live for a while, back in October, Kelly Clarkson sang live and acapella for the world series and she did an absolutly AMAZING job, you didnt post that vid, b/c you can't stand anyone that calls out your bullshit like she does. Christina Aguileria is a conceded show off bitch, thats why she messed up..KARMA…

  16. 16

    who cares about some words. I just wish she'd stop doing the YEAH YEAH YEAH WOOHOO YEAH grunting stuff. And Im a big xtina fan. But theres no need to overdo it.

  17. 17

    Its okay, Christina, sadly, most Americans dont know the lyrics either…

  18. 18

    She completely murdered the whole song. They should have switched her and Lea Michele. Seriously.

  19. 19

    I didn't even realize and I don't think many did… she did a great job though!

  20. 20

    She did AMAZING. I don't know the American anthem. She looked BEAUTIFUL and sounded BEAUTIFUL. Of course Perez will never admit that since it wasn't Lady Gaga singing it. Well done Christina! :)

  21. 21

    NO ONE can sing ACAPELLA like Christina….bravo,honey,we love you….
    suck her dick,jealous little monsters!!!!

  22. 22

    worse that the flub is just the fact that she did a horrendous job. completely oversinging it. just awful. just awful. she's all show. not a lick of emotion.

  23. 23

    Her vocals were on point, but she did mess up that line. But of course the haters will act as if she a disgrace to the nation.

  24. 24

    perez your slowing down now….i saw this on tumblr like 2 mins after she sang

  25. 25

    If ever there is a time to not fuck up this is it. Nerves or not you really shouldn't mess this song up, its not like she hasn't been performing forever for huge amounts of people. No sympathy

  26. 26

    Um, Miss Carrie Underwood, DID THAT SHIT LIVE last year!!!! And she didn't mess up AT all! Xtina, tries to damn hard, she wasn't nervous lmfao, She just FUCKED it up, she's sang that song a million times, so your tellin me she sang it wrong everytime then? lmfao!!!! Next time folks just Hire Carrie Underwood, she'll nail it and GET THE DAMN WORDS right!!!!

  27. 27

    She was sooooo bad. I was embarrassed for her! I would say she needs to brush up on her singing and know the words before going out! Terrible!

  28. 28

    Oh who cares, the lyrics are stupid anyway.

  29. 29

    Yeah, she messed up ONE line. The fact that she kept going and belted the shit out of it is a testament to her strength. Id like to see anyone else do it live

  30. 30

    Boy they really squeezed the life and talent out of that brand

  31. 31

    you know perez as fellow gay person i used to admire you but i starting to think you are really fake!!!! you said you were going to stop bullying and when it comes to Christina you haven't

  32. 32

    In this day and age where nobody has the talent to sing live infront of a stadium of tens of thousands and a tv viewership in the millions upon millions she did a great job. Everyone knows that the national anthem is one of the most difficult if not demanding songs for a pro to sing live.

  33. 33

    I think it was still good.

  34. 34

    Im so glad u got this up quick. Poor thing painted a big ol' target on her forehead but its 100% her fault 4 not learning the song right….we still mad over here talking bout her & u just reassured all of us every mistake she just made. Thank Perez!

  35. 35

    You know what, fuck off okay. I'm tired of everyone trying to get her down over every little thing she does. I didn't even notice, it was such a tiny mistake. Fuck off and find someone else to bully around asswipe!

  36. 36

    She didn't really sound good.. I don't know she was screaming.. A LOT

  37. 37

    I'm not a bully any more, but the woman I've spent the best part of 2 years criticizing to make an artist I love appear to be better I will continue to highlight any fault that happens to her and continue to dodge the multiple faults artists I love have. DOUCHE

  38. 38

    She did great, loved it

  39. Laury says – reply to this


    Her voice annoys me to no end. Hasn't the girl ever had a vocal coach to tell her that screaming is NOT singing? Because when she hits high notes, that's all she does, scream. And regardless of the fact that she messed up the lyrics, this was not her best performance. She'd be amazing if she just learned to fucking tone it down. It's like, we get it bitch, you have a powerful voice, you don't need to make people's ears bleed to prove it.

  40. 40

    It was garbage. Christina, we get it. You're a huge fan of melisma and you got a decent voice but that sucked ass. Learn the fucking lyrics for Christ's sake and just sing the song without being such a fucking showboater with your voice. As for you, Mario, I'm sure you were in hog-heaven when you saw this. You'll probably mix up your whacking routine and whack off to this instead of just Bieber videos.

  41. 41

    This is a representation of our country. You dont sing variations of our National Anthem! Sing it the way its supposed to be sung! This is NOT American Idol! What a disgrace! I wont even go into her messing up the words! Shes a ComSimp!

  42. 42

    Mad props to her singing it live. Respect where respect is due.

  43. 43

    Yeah she flubbed but she sounded hella good! More talented than lady caca

  44. 44

    she looked like a tranny hooker and messed up the lyrics….fail.

  45. 45

    How embarrassing! First she mess up the lyrics then she ruined the rest of the song by over singing each word to makeup for it. All in all epic fail probably up there with the whole Janet Jackson thing.

  46. 46

    Oh, please people! Stop the whiny "Perez is such a bully/X-Tina hater/If it were Lady GaGa" bullshit. I read this first on other sites, and they were less nice about it than Perez.

  47. 47

    Re: jones19 – Your an asshole piece of shit!

  48. 48

    Re: Glenn Kelly – that's how she sings silly, oh wait i mean screams lol

  49. 49

    I can't blame her — I listen to the National Anthem and I still don't even know the words to it. Props to her for singing it live, though. She sounded great.

    She's been singing the anthem since she was 7 years old. She knows the words, she was just nervous, as you could tell. I'm not going to be biased, she did mess up and I felt so bad for her when it happened. She's been through a lot this year. She looked and sounded very nervous, which is very rare for her, you could tell the way she ran out the rest of the notes. She's just human, I'm not denying she messed up, she did and she's had way better performances. But imagine yourself singing the national anthem live at the super bowl, now imagine how you'd feel if you got nervous and messed up. She is probably so embarassed and upset, on top of everything the media has put her through lately. Yeah, she messed up. She's only a human. She's sounded better. At least she sang live, and continued the song. She's still a great singer, and the irony is how many people will stone her to death over being nervous and then cheer on an alleged rapist on the field :/

  51. 51

    hahaha I love the confused look on their faces

  52. 52

    Re: TRUTH-TELLER – she didn't look beautiful she looked OBESE!!!! She ruined the National Anthem, 99% of America agrees she butchered that shit!

  53. 53

    I thought it was a mess all around- she looked messy, the vocals were chaotic, and obviously the words… very disappointing.

  54. 54

    Jennifer Hudson did an outstanding job 2 years ago and so sid Carrie Underwood last year. X-Tina made a hatchet job out of it.

  55. 55

    why does this look like such a big deal anyway? seems super boring

  56. 56

    I like Xtina, but I didn't think that sounded good at all. Lea's was kind of granny sounding too.

  57. 57

    Yaawwwn… she sang the anthem like an hour ago and I'm already tired of all the discussions.


    Whooooo careeees????
    Don't say it was a disgrace or a shame, YOU'RE a shame if you take things too freakin serious!

    There are people fighting for the rights, like in Egypt, there are people dying due to hunger, like in Africa, there are people being surveilled without even knowing it, like in the US, and you care about WORDS someone sang or didn't sing??? Then you're pathetic… sorry!

  58. 58

    Re: Jasmyn GreenRe: Jen2007Re: EMJ3

    She sang it before. She was nervous. Everyone makes a mistake. She brushed it off and kept going. Now do the same.

    I feel like I'm lecturing children.

  59. 59

    amazing !!!!! I like.

  60. 60

    who cares about the singing the bitch looked a mess …hair fucked up …face all puffy ….someone cue up katy perrys "circle the drain"

  61. 61

    i think she oversang it just a wee bit…

    and she just flat out made up a lyric lol

  62. IVIV says – reply to this


    I can't believe people are saying she needs to "learn" the words, she knows the words…you've never forgotten something when you've been nervous? There's apparently so many perfect people in this world who never make mistakes or get nervous, if you're so perfect why aren't you a celebrity? She's been singing this since she was 7, at Stanley Cup's and Steelers games, she made a human mistake. Yeah she fucked up. She didn't mean to upset anyone. Imagine how bad you'd feel if this was you and if you read all of these mean things people said, like she meant to mess up or offend anyone. She made a mistake, apparently some people here never have. And you certainly don't know how it feels for the whole WORLD to judge you for it.

  63. 63

    Re: badnfluenz – Oh how stupid! She didn't look obese!

  64. 64


  65. 65

    Fuck you Perez hilton. she did great

  66. 66

    Re: jones19 – Seriously? That is a truly pathetic statement.

  67. 67

    Re: badnfluenz – If she "butchered" it they would have booed. How the hell is she obese? Obese is Precious/ Gabourey Sidibe . Christina is a legendary singer. Mistakes happen. I didnt even notice she messed a little line up until Piggy hilton of course had to point it out.

  68. 68

    Proof her career is over. FAIL

  69. 69

    It is not an excuse that she was nervous. But she needed to memorize the lyrics correctly,

  70. mw says – reply to this


    awful -HOLD A NOTE! i hate that shitty all over the place singing…

  71. 71

    Re: badnfluenz

    Lol you're ridiculous. You don't know what obese looks like, do you.

    Go back to your sandbox dear. Grown folks are talking.

  72. 72

    xtina did amazing all haters can go fuck yourself and perez if it was lady gaga I am sure you think of millions of excusses why she failed and the rest of you too so fuck off.

  73. 73


  74. 74

    She reminded me of Myra Rudolph's spoof of the National Anthem on SNL. I can forgive forgetting the words but butchering the melody is ridiculous. She was terrible. And I like her. She seems to be falling apart.

  75. 75

    its stuff like this that makes me glad i'm not american. you might think its patriotic, but the rest of the world is just collectively clenching its butt cheeks in embarrassment. there's nothing wrong with a bit of subtlety y'know.

  76. 76

    Re: Mary Tale – Oh hop off it already! I'll be the first to say FUCK AFRICA AND ALL THOSE OTHER 3RD WORLD COUNTRIES! I am sick of their shit! Where the fuck were they when Katrina struck New Orleans and other parts of America? Oh that's right they weren't doing shit, just like they aren't doing shit for their own people. America needs to leave that shit be and FOCUS ON AMERICA! Think about it America has done so MUCH for OTHERS over the YEARS and when it comes to us, they still have the balls to hold their hands out. Lets take care of our Country and OUR People first, once we FIX our problems in America then we can focus on one country at a time. If we keep fixing shit for others, they will have no desire or need to do it themselves because why should they if they keep getting bailed out by others. Disgusting.

  77. 77

    I'm Canadian and *I* know the lyrics.
    Stay in school, kids!
    But at least she kept going and didn't fold, which a lot of posters would have done.
    Still, it reminded me of the Simpsons' episode about the US anthem being over-sung at a baseball game, as Marge's hair wilts.

  78. 78

    Re: TRUTH-TELLER – Wow, everyone else noticed her fucking up the National Anthem. If you've attended games growing up you pretty much know the anthem by heart. She's def not gorgeous, ok maybe not obese but she's fat. NOT chunky, not meaty, SHE'S FAT! Her face shows it.

  79. 79

    Re: leenonymous – I know Us grown folks are talking, too bad you children can't take the truth!

  80. 80

    ugh it was all about her voice again which totally distracted from the lyrics and even any feeling. all i heard were groans and loudness coming from a bottle of tan and bleach meh!!

  81. 81

    I saw this and I'm sorry but this chick is DONE! I mean seriously, at least have enough respect to learn your lyrics before you go on the biggest show of the year. What an embarassment. I hope RCA drops this hack.

  82. 82

    I said to the entire room when she started I'd bet anyone 50 bucks she's going to fuck it up and forget the words. I made 250 bucks off 5 fools who actually thought she could pull it off. They said there's cue cards behind the camera. I said doesn't matter she's a fucktard she'll still blow it. and what the flaming fuck is up with all those vocal gymnastics? Just sing the damn song. Oh well, she's going to be pulverized for this one ahahaha. I should have bet 100 per bet. Oh well Thanks Chris.

  83. 83

    Holy Crap! Most of you are so stupid! Christina sucked so bad it was amazing. She thinks she is whitney and she actually is a sucky singer and a bitch to boot. She should go buy a rusty hanger and mangle her vagina so there will be no chance of future versions of her beyond the existing ones. The super bowl always shows the DNA pool clearly. Fuck this! I'm done. This country should be taken over by Iran. That's how stupid we are.

  84. 84

    How did I know you would post this video up. LEAVE HER ALONE. So what she messed up the lyrics she sounded great. I didnt even realize she messed up. If it was lady gag u wouldnt have said anything.

  85. 85

    Re: Mary Tale – I lvoe how people get on here and admonish people for commenting by commenting. Obviously there are more important things in the world, this sight is for light hearted fun, get over yourself!!

  86. 86

    smh wat a dumbass i knew she messed up

  87. 87

    She sounded horrible!! And it's so embarassing she messed up the lyrics.

  88. 88

    That was a screaming, overdone mess…between her and the black Eyed Peas, I have a serious headache!

  89. 89

    Re: jones19 – The lyrics are actually quite poetic you silly bitch.

  90. 90

    who cares at least she didn't sound as shitty as as Black Eyed Peas hahahaha I was laughing so hard because of how horrible they sounded..Xtina forgot some lyrics oh well it happens get over it.

  91. 91

    we know she can do the anthem just fine. mistakes happen. she messed up one line, but kept going. hell from what ive read on other sites, alot of people didnt notice the mistake until it was pointed out to them. and clearly the crowd didnt notice, cause she got a good cheer at the end.

  92. 92

    I thought Christina was a better singer than that It was a mess - melismas used to hide bad singing…."melisma" is the official name for the vocal runs Xtina does all over the place, usually to better effect. She was singing a national anthem, not a hip hop love song - Christina wasn't serving the music, she was trying to show off, and failed.

  93. 93

    Re: Mary Tale – Wow, you're such a deep person who's soooo interested in the issues. You're so above the rest of us. People like you…the ones who bitch about world issues yet do nothing to change them. You must watch a lot of Fight Club you stupid cow.

  94. 94

    Wow, our troops must be so fucking proud because that dumb bimbo who gets more recognition then they ever will, doesn't even know our national fucking anthem. She's are a disgrace! Her singing resembled that of a dying animal. She looked like a fucking mess. The whole performance was terrible. Ugh! Disappointment.

    Perez will stop hating on Christina Aguilera when she does what every other pop super star did: a publicity trade. He made a cameo on Rihanna's latest video and now she's great all over again. Britney Spears made peace with him and Perez joined her on the opening video for her latest tour, and all of a sudden Britney rocks again. And when Perez and Lady GaGa bump into each other at a party, a photograph together is mandatory or else this blog will auto destruct itself in the next 5 seconds. Until Christina won't "sell" herself to Perez, always expect the worst.

  96. 96

    Sounded great?! She has a good voice but she really needs to stop all that screaming and straining, it does NOT sound good.

  97. 97

    Re: Mary Tale – Pathetic is bitching about this thread while lecturing about all these other more important issues. Maybe you should get off of perezhilton.com and donate your time and/or money to those causes.

  98. 98

    I like Christina's voice and her music, most of the time. I know that people like to ad lib and be "soulful", but a little of that ad lib shit goes a long way! Sing the damn song, don't OOOHHH AAAHHHAH WHOAAAA WOOO your way through it. IMO she did too much. I don't think she sounded all that good tonight.

  99. 99

    Re: Mary Tale – Shove a cock in your throat. We can comment however and about whatever we want.
