Was Xtina Channeling Maya Rudolph During The Star Spangled Banner?

| Filed under: TV NewsChristina AguileraSilly!Zportz

Oh man.

Despite Christina Aguilera taking some, ahem, 'creative liberties' with the lyrics of The Star Spangled Banner during Sunday's Super Bowl, it seems that her performance STILL wasn't as original as we'd originally thought, and may, in fact, have been paying homage to a Saturday Night Live sketch featuring Maya Rudolph!

Ch-ch-check out the similarities in a mash-up of the two 'interpretations' (above)!

But the question remains: which one did a better job?!

    Maya was mocking Christina… This wasn't the first time she has performed the national anthem.

    Pretty funny! I had thought of this skit after this whole anthem fiasco. Even though Maya is just joking for her part, I prefer her vocals over the caterwauling coming from X-Tina. Don't know if Maya can really sing, but she is the daughter of the late Minnie Riperton and the goddaughter of the late Teena Marie, two great singers in their own right.

    PLEASE say you aren't serious about this??? You can't possibly think that she was 'paying homage' to the SNL skit? There are only so many ways to sing that song so any similarities are soley due to the limited nature of the lyrics and music. You are seriously dragging yourself deeper and deeper by the day. It might be time for a vacation, Mario.

    you're fucking disgusting. You told Ellen you were gonna change for the better, ummm lie much?

  9. 9

    Oh for fuck sakes, this is so pathetic.

  10. 10

    Hopefully future anthem singers will learn from this and just sing the song at as it was written.

    talk about beating a dead horse! let it go already…

  12. 12

    jesus…move on already

  13. 13

    yeah sounds like it to me

  14. 14

    aww poor christina. everyone messes up sometimes

  15. 15

    WTF is wrong with you Perez????
    Christina sings the anthem the same way since years!!!!!

  16. 16

    Bingo! Xtina is over the top terrible!

  17. 17

    I thought it was quite funny - talk about people needing a sense of humor…………holy shit……….

  18. 18

    if youre on her side then why dont you post her rehersal video?
    she got the words right and sang fantastically!

  19. 19

    Christina is ridiculously over the top. Sure, she can sing, but she's much better when she just sings instead of trying so desperately to show off. It's painfully drawn out, in my opinion.

    What Christiana was trying to do with her rendition of the song was to pay homage to all the homosexuals in the audience. Politically correct is more like it…she can sing that is for sure. Homosexuals are known to sing also so by omitting some words she was trying to pull at the heart strings of the homosexuals in the audience and at home and to remind them she is not Lady GaGa or any other Grace Jones Elton John kind of singer. Her tone and her voice tried to support the struggle of homosexual marriage and commitment. Wow she was great with her rendition and was so smooth with her handling of the song its such an honor.

    Re: Celiacubeforum – How you interpreted that I cease to understand…what your saying makes no sense whatsoever but okay.

  24. 24

    That was pretty funny, considering Christina sucks SO bad.

  25. 25

    Lame Perez! How come your not posting her rehearsal footage? WHICH SHE NAILED! any chance to talk shit about my gurl!

  26. 26

    Re: Celiacubeforum – I dont understand your comment! i really dont think this has anything to do with homosexuals!

  27. 27

    Um .. for you to even compare Christina to that other girl is kinda ridiculous. It's obvious who the better singer is! Perez, you are my fav and all but that was a really dumb question.

  28. 28

    The question is - why do singers sound like this these days? All the wailing and shrieking and contorting the vowels? It is overkill. All the singers auditioning for American Idol try and do it as well. It is like the worst of Whitney, Mariah, Alicia Keyes and Christina rolled into one. Whatever happened to people singing smoothly - like Olivia Newton-John or Karen Carpenter. STOP ALL THE DAMN AFFECTATION AND JUST SING IS SMOOTH AND STRAIGHT! YOU LOOK LIKE SOME KIND OF IDIOT WHO IS POSSESSED BY SOME KIND OF DEMON FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! Plus that type of singing gives me a headache.

    Its so funny how everyone makes a huuuuggggeee deal over the anthem. Forget people getting shot everyday in L.A due to gangs, forget that children are being kidnapped everyday all over the world, lets focus on what really matters and that is how Christina Aguilera sang the anthem…. It happened, she apologized for messing up the words, and its over so let it be.

  30. 30

    "x-tina" that name is so retarded i cant take it. Christina is such an idiot y would they let this lush sing the anthem anyway

    Re: grace-e – she sounded amazing in that rehearsal. if only that happened sunday.

  33. 33

    You are still a bitch Perez. I take back every positive thing I said about you. Now you're just passive aggressive.

  34. 34

    google Xtina Vs Tory Lane. :)

  35. 35

    i think christina was too busy pulling faces and shouting to get the words right. how many vocal acrobatics do you need to add to a song that's only like 2 minutes long, seriously?!

    i understand putting your spin on a song but damn.

    Christina is an artist who would actually befefit from lipsyncing…it would keep her in check - when she goes off on whatever rant that is (sorry, I can't think of any other way to describe what she does when she drags a line for 5 minutes), she ruins the song.

  37. 37

    FYI, this video of Mya Rudolf is several years old, from when she was still on the show. Waaayy before Xtinas superbowl mess up.

    When will people get over this? America thinks WAY too much of itself, I don't know more than a line of your national anthem, and I bet you know even less of 'Oh, Canada'. But who cares about some stupid lyric flub? How is that offensive? It wasn't intentional. It was nerves. And when did lyrics start mattering again, you all know the words, who cares what she says, as long as it sounds good.

    I'm sorry that was funny.

  42. 42

    I saw this SNL skit 3 or 4 years ago….but It's a gag show and everyone was like laughing about it. I found it funny to be honest but was surprised that this didnt get much attention and hot air from people as Christina is getting right now for this HONEST TO GOODNESS MISTAKE.

    Re: Mad Dog – She sucked. The SNL one was supposed to sound awful for fun. Christina sounded worse and she was not trying to be funny.

  45. 45

    i'm pretty sure maya was making fun of the way christina and a bunch of other singers sing.

  46. 46

    you guys are totally jealous,cause this woman (Xtina) is succesful,beautiful,talented,rich…..suck her cock,loooosers

  47. 47

    Re: AshNrj – Suck her cock? Pray tell me, how old are you to not know, that women have no cocks? Stupid…
    Christina sucked and appeared to be drunk, Maya did this to be funny and was great, that's facts, so everybody who didn't get that yet, shut up.

  48. 48

    Perez get over yourself!!!

  49. 49

    HE HE that shit was funny and Maya was mocking Christina since this isn't the first time Christina sang the Anthem wow Maya has some vocals wonder how she sings when she's not kidding around.

  50. 50

  51. 51
