Christina Aguilera Apologizes For National Anthem Snub

After forgetting the lyrics to the U.S. National Anthem at the Super Bowl last night (Feb 6), Pop singer Christina Aguilera hopes people will forget the incident.

Instead of the correct line “O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming,” the 30-year-old singer repeated an earlier line with a slight variation, singing, “What so proudly we watched at the twilight’s last gleaming.”

“I got so caught up in the moment of the song that I lost my place. I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through.”

Aguilera has had a tough year as her latest album “Bionic” and movie “Burlesque” both received lackluster sales.
