Christina Aguilera’s dream come true of singing at the Super Bowl did not come out as flawless as everyone expected. Christina messed up on the lyrics! If you saw her performance, you’ll see that she fouled up on the fourth line. Instead of singing “O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming,” she sang “What so proudly we watched at the twilight’s last gleaming.”
The video of Christina singing the wrong lyrics went viral as soon as she finished the song during the live telecast on Sunday February 6. Christina knows she made a mistake and has issued an apology.
She said that she “got so caught up in the moment of the song that I lost my place.” To her credit, she definitely sang it with all her heart as you can se in the video. She further added, “I can only hope that everyone could feel y love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through.”
But despite the mistake she’s done, fellow artists and fans took to Twitter to congratulate her for a job well done. And it was a great performance, except for that one line mistake.
