You've really got to be creative to screw up the national anthem so badly.
Tens of millions watched Christina Aguilera suffer a lyric malfunction while singing the national anthem at the Super Bowl tonight.On the upside, by the time that horror show at halftime concluded most people probably already forgot about this.
The five time Grammy award winner flubbed the fourth line of the song most learn in kindergarden.
Aguilera's new version was, "Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight, what so proudly we watched at the twilight's last gleaming."
The correct lyrics are: "Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight, O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming."
Aguilera, dressed in a black knee-length dress and flowing white collar that matched her platinum hair, seemed to try and make up for the goof by loading up the rest of the song with over-the-top flourishes and warbling notes that also have never been part of the national anthem.
Her flub immediately lit up Twitter where thousands of viewers ripped the singer to shreds.
