I thought I heard it, but her face didn't reveal it. Maybe she didn't even know she did it at the time, but a quick rewind of the DVR revealed exactly what I thought -- Christina Aguilera messed up the National Anthem. What a way to start off the Super Bowl!
She completely skipped "O'er the ramparts we watched." Then instead of "What so proudly we hailed," she sang, "What so proudly we watched at the twilight's last reaming."
Oops. Big Oops!

Anyone can get nervous performing in front of such a large crowd, but she has plenty of experience doing so. It just makes you wonder how well she knew the song in the first place. At least we know she wasn't lip synching though!
Besides that little ginormous issue, I thought she sounded great even if she did look at little bit matronly in that black suit. She has an amazing voice, and she belted it out loud and proud. But wow, to forget the words to the National Anthem at the Super Bowl, that's going to be fodder for jokes and skits for years to come.
What did you think of Christina Aguilera's performance at the Super Bowl? Is her flub forgivable?
