Christina Aguilera Repeats Line Of National Anthem

Christina Aguilera flubbed a line as she belted out the national anthem at the start of the Super Bowl.

When she was supposed to sing the line "O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?" she instead repeated an earlier line, with a slight variation.

She sang "What so proudly we watched at the twilight's last gleaming," which is the same line from earlier in the song but with the word `watched' instead of the word `hailed.'

The mistake immediately set social networks abuzz with people commenting on the error.

Aguilera's representative did not immediately return a call and e-mail seeking comment.

    I think "America The Beautiful" would be a more fitting National Anthem. A beautiful melody with beautiful lyrics that best sums up our nation. Here's a little history about "The Star Spangled Banner". The lyrics come from "Defence of Fort McHenry", a poem written in 1814 by the 35-year-old lawyer and amateur poet, Francis Scott Key, after witnessing the bombardment of Fort McHenry by the British Royal Navy ships in Chesapeake Bay during the Battle of Fort McHenry in the War of 1812. The poem was set to the tune of a popular British drinking song, written by John Stafford Smith for the Anacreontic Society, a men's social club in London. A War anthem set to the tune of a British drinking song! Yep, our nation's most reverant song.

    I was disgusted at this girl's performance of what is supposed to be our Nation's most reverant song...It's one thing to forget the lyrics,which is inexcusable,but quite another to change the beat of the whole song....And the half time show was as bad as Aquilera....Next time I'll just watch the game and turn off the halftime so-called "entertainment"...I'd really like to know who the idiots were who chose these no=talented wannabes who screech out this nonsense....It definitely was a new low for the Super Bowl!

    I didn't catch her mistake at first. My dogs where howling too loud at her to hear it. Maybe next year eminem should rap the Anthem. Couldn't be much worse.

    I cannot believe the hype the media is swathing our brains with over this performance. The National Anthem is one of the hardest songs to sing 'acapello'. How many of us would try it in front of national television? I say, give it a rest and appreciate what she did. She has a great voice.

    That halftime show with the black pees was worse than Aguilera. That halftime debacle was not just a new low for Super Bowl halftime shows, it was a new low for television. What is good about a bunch of buffoons with no talent shouting ignorant nonsense to the same old tired beat that we have been tortured with since hip slop moved beyond a stupid idea in a thugs head?

    I can not understand why some people buy her so called music. To make her very,very $$$$$ money rich with lots of money I guess. Aguilera has voice like Billie Holiday had!
