Christina Aguilera Kicks Off Super Bowl Festivities By Flubbing The National Anthem

Well, that was the longest six and a half minutes of my life. Christina Aguilera forgot a couple of the words to the National Anthem today, and repeated a couple of lines too.

Ms. Aguilera is, apparently a huge fan of proudly hailing, but not a huge fan of watching ramparts. She repeated the line “What so proudly we hailed” in place of “O’r the ramparts we watched”.

Also, in true Aguilera style, she held out a few notes for a couple of seconds. Combine that with her lack of words and we have a pretty bad opener to the big game. Let’s hope the teams themselves can have a little bit of a better show.
