Fergie Defends Xtina, Talks Halftime Show

fergie consoles xtina

At least you've got Fergalicious on your side, Xtina.

Fergie defended Christina Aguilera's Super Bowl performance during an interview on Dan Patrick's radio show.

Here's what she had to say about it:

“You know what? It’s such a huge venue, your nerves take a hold of you. I completely understand. She’s one of the best singers of our time. Nobody can take that away from you. … But you get nervous at these things. We’re human.”

And here's what Fergie had to say about her own performance:

“Some of my notes were pitchy to me. It was so exhilarating. The whole thing. It was so big. That’s a once-in-a-lifetime thing.”

Certainly a nice gesture on Fergie's part! Hopefully her kind words help Xtina feel better!

    mediocrity at its finest



  2. 2

    At least? Lot's of people are on her side. shit happens, get over it.



  3. 3

    It was a once in a lifetime thing, because they'll never ask your band back to play the half time show ever again. Not after that shiteous performance.



  4. 4

    Google Xtina Vs Tory Lane. Funny shiz!

    quote "She’s one of the best singers of our time". Man, if anyone ever thought this Fergie was a retard, here's proof. Christina IS NOT a very good singer. Sure, she can hold a note - but she oversings EVERYTHING and ruins almost every single song. That Beautiful song is nice, but have you ever heard her do it live? She butchers it completely.



  6. 6

    Karma! It sucks to be Floptina!



  7. 7

    Go Christina! U are the best!



  8. 8

    If you are performing at a concert, you have words to your own song on a prompter in front of you, but you don't have a prompter at an event like this singing something as important as the national anthem? Why can't we get these artists a prompter so this doesn't happen again?!



  9. 9

    This is what happens when all the record execs only care about image and not about the actual artist. If she wasnt pretty and didnt have a bunch of writers to hook her up she would have been nothing regardless of her voice! EXECS DO NOT CARE ABOUT PEOPLES VOICE THEY WANT YOU TO LOOK PRETTY! At least i would sing all the verses! who cares if i dont fit into a size xxs!



  10. 10

    Exactly what I've been saying. She messed up one line from nerves. Give her a break. A lot of people lip synch for this event.



  11. 11

    Fergie should keep her mouth shut and be thankful that Xtina screwed up the lyrics, otherwise, we'd all be talking about how shiteous the half-time show was!
    -
    Fergie and her band were just effin' awful.

    Christina sang TWICE at the NBA Finals last year and did it perfectly. She knows the song. It WAS a case of nerves. She is a great singer. My only complaint is after the mess up she tried to over-compensate and then over-sang the rest. However, she has a great voice. Much better than Fergie. That was a mess. Fergie can NOT sing live. She sounds great on the records, but does not have the natural talent that Christina does.



  13. 13

    she is only to sing one song and it's the national anthem which is a very important song. didn't she even memorize and practice singing that song? if she can sing multiple songs in a concert or a show, why can't she even perfect one common song?



  14. 14

    FLOPTINA STRIKES AGAIN!



  15. 15

    finally a singer who thinks logically
    ive always loved fergie
    and i love that she stood up for xtina
    rather than talked shit like taylor hicks

    stupid hick.



  16. 16

    GEt a life you fuckin' queer! and get a real job! Christina OWNS THE THRONE!



  17. 17

    i guess she was just nervous… if you like up and coming stars you should check out this band zuzu's petals. they have a myspace — www.myspace.com/zuzuspetals94



  18. 18

    You must die fuckin' queer! You suck "perez hilton" ! CHRISTINA OWNS THE THRONE! ♥



  19. 19

    THEY BOTH SUCKED. STOP MAKING EXCUSES BIATCHES!!!!!!!!! WHITNEY HOUSTON DIDNT HAVE ANYONE TO MAKE EXCUSES ON HER BEHALF. WTF.



  20. 20

    Did Fergie just say SOME of her notes were pitchy? That doesn't even begin to describe how awful she was…



  21. 21

    Re: Javier Luciano – What throne? She should be made to sit in a corner on a stool wearing a dunce cap for failing to learn the words to the anthem.



  22. 22

    Re: cyasar

    I'm so tired of these ignorant posts.

    She sang the stupid song TWICE for the NBA final thingies (sooo not a sports person). She KNOWS the damned song. She was NERVOUS. Get off her ASS.

    Re: leenonymous – It is her JOB to know the words of songs. Is she a waitress? No. Is she a receptionist? No. Is she a corporate CEO? No. She is a singer and goddamn it - she better know the fucking words to a song that most have drilled into their head's since birth.



  24. 24

    Floptina is ruined 4Ever! Luv it!



  25. 25

    CAN WE STOP TALKING ABOUT THIS ALREADY?! My god…. it was just one line in a song……..



  26. 26

    Shit happens so what she mess up on a stupid song she didn't kill someone it is a song people need to get over it I think there are more important things people should worry about then Christina mess up one line in a song. Christina has a great voice she is not perfect this time last year people were count out Britney spear and now look Britney she back and no one ever remember her going crazy in like month Christina aguilera will come out with hit and everyone like Perez who were hating on her so hard. Will be the first one to lick her ass and talk about her great she is which she still is



  27. 27

    Ya think Xtina will learn some humility with this?? LOL! Me neither.



  28. 28

    Re: Brandon Lee – "If she wasnt pretty …"

    You're kidding right?

    She is NOT pretty — she's a very homely girl who slathers on "at least" a pound of make up before going out. The girl is smoke and mirrors dude. :-P



  29. 29

    Perez!!!! You are being very supportive too! I love it! Please keep doing it! I was sure you have a sweet soul. Perez I love you. THANKS PEREZ! THANKS!!

    -Xtina fan

    Re: sharkgrl89
    Just one line in a song….It was OUR NATIONAL ANTHEM for THE SUPER BOWL!! She's been a star for over ten years and was paid a ton of $ to sing something she should know in her sleep from front to back. It was AN EPIC FAILURE! She deserves to be ridden into the ground over this for years, and I hope it winds up being the defining moment of her career.



  31. 31

    Stupidtina you're trrible



  32. 32

    This shit is so overblown and stupid. She sounded great. Who cares if she fumbled a few words out of nervousness. Her heart was in it and you could hear it.



  33. 33

    Re: 7tizz – Yes but when she isn't over doing it she sounds quiet incredible. She truly does have an incredible voice and one no one will forget. What do you have hun? :]



  34. 34

    Re: leenonymous – Yep, dare them to stand in front of the entire world watching and she knew going into it how judged she would be so she tried too hard and got caught up. Feel for her.



  35. 35

    Re: alixman – It is. She messed up one stupid line and the media of course makes it into a bigger thing than it needs to be. National news? FOrreal? SMh.



  36. 36

    "It was nerves and big venue" what a load of BS, Christina has performed thousands of time in front of hundreds of people. She FUBAR'D the National Anthem plain and simple no excuses. TBH it's one of the worst renditions of the National Anthem I've heard in a long time.



  37. 37

    Xtina doesn't care about this shiz…..she is amazing,love

    Kind of her to say that. Even if she was a bit flat/pitchy on child o mine, I just figured it was because her monitor or earpiece would be of limited help in a venue of that size and noisiness.

    Re: Andrew Ed Schoeman – Did you know that good performers get nervous almost every time before they perform? If it's a big gig, multiply that. That doesn't mean that they don't eventually calm down after four or eight bars. The good ones use the nervousness to better their performance, like adrenaline. It's not B.S. Streisand has performance anxiety, the best selling female vocalist of all time. There are different triggers for anxiety; your parents or siblings or friends in the crowd, or industry people, etc. You try to use the anxiety and make it work FOR you.
    I don't care how many years you sing; if you care about a good performance, you do get nervous.

    britney fans are tone deaf and gays



  49. 49

    Christina was PAID a LOT of money to sing one song. She messed it up. She didn't volunteer, she didn't do it for free. If I mess up at work, I get called on it. She should be too. It is as simple as that. For God knows how much money, she couldn't sing one song correctly.



  50. 50

    Shit happens. . .she's human, not a fucking robot, you losers who take every fucking thing as if it will personally destroy the world. . .GET OVER IT!

    51

    a LITTLE pitchy to HER? Ha! It was extremely pitchy to everyone! Fergie was horrible.



  52. 52

    This time I agree with Fergie.
    Now it's time for a new music that opposes what rock/rap/country/pop has become. Dallas is leading the way. Conservatives will stick with the 60 year old music, the rest of you will join the art revolution.



  53. 53

    Karmas a bitch maybe she wouldn't have messed up if she wasn't oversinging and a show off.Fergies just kissing ass because she sucked.



  54. 54

    Whatever it's her own Karma.. for being such a bitch.. specially what she did to her husband.. so it's whatever.. and it was one damn song that she had to remember.. nervous.. yeah okay.. how many times has she sung in front of thousands of people.. and another thing.. yes she does have a powerful voice but damn she does not know what the fuck to do with it.. she needs a vocal couch.. the way she was singing that song was terrible.. you wouldn't know what to do if you were trying to sing along.. it was in and out so much.. and as for Fergie..it's funny how she is even talking.. she sounded terrible and everyone agreed it was the worse halftime show ever.. man they all need to go back to the drawing board for awhile..



  55. 55

    non of the comments posted here matter at all (including mine) she's opening at the grammys so guess what? STFU nobody cares.



  56. 56

    Did you know that 1/4 american don't know the lyrics for their national anthem? That's almost 80 million americans!!.

    Re: jennycakes – Do you even fucking know her, who are you to judge on what (if she actually did) she did to her husband. WHO ARE YOU TO SAY THAT?



  63. 63

    Fergie was far more worse then xtina.



  64. 64

    Are we still talking about this? Hater will continue to hate, but until you show me someone who has more raw talent as a singer/ song writer I will be a loyal Christina Fan. Sure she has some oversinging issues, but at the end of the day her greatest preformances stand out to me the most. (MANS WORLD GRAMMYS) NONE OF THESE OTHER POP STARS CAN HOLD A TORCH TO YOU CHRISTINA, SO KEEP MOVING FORWARD!!!!



  65. 65

    New found repsect for Fergie for not taking the easy road. She knows what its like to be on stage in front of millions. Props to PEREZ for not being a super hater 100 percent of the time to Christina!!



  66. 66
