You know, we have to give her a lot of credit for being able to take this one in stride! It couldn't have been easy!
Christina Aguilera will be appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today to promote her new show, The Voice, and during the interview, the singer opened up about the now-infamous Super Bowl National Anthem lyric flub, and is remarkably clear-headed about the incident!
"I had been singing that song my entire life. I was the youngest anthem singer in my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. I sang for The Steelers as a child. I think 7 or 8 years old. I would sing for them. I think had a moment where I was at the Super Bowl at 30 years old. I took in the moment a little bit too much. Shoot me for appreciating the moment but here I am at the Super Bowl…singing for a team and in front of the world. And remembering what it was like to be that young and look where I made it now. And then it was like, oh. That night I knew, I just made myself a Trivial Pursuit question…In 2011 what female singer, ya know, flubbed the lyrics. It's just insane. But I have a really good laugh about it and you get over things. You get back up again and you just prove to yourself and to everyone you that much stronger."
That's the spirit, gurl!
We're sure it was mortifying at the time, but we can't blame you for getting caught up in the moment and losing your train of thought!
And look! You've already come leaps and bounds since then, and are a part of what looks to be an AMAZING TV Show!
Keep that focus on the positive!
