Christina Aguilera might have messed up with the lyrics during Super Bowl XLV at Cowboys Stadium, too nervous? Drunk? (Allegedly, of course.) Who knows? But she totally nailed it during the National Anthem rehearsal, be a witness yourself, check out Christina Aguilera’s rehearsal video for the great game below.
What went wrong when Grammy award winner Christina Aguilera sang the wrong lyrics of the National Anthem during the Super Bowl in Arlington, Texas? Remember the exact line where she messed up? Check that out here.
Many heavily criticized her for this mistake, others like Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas defended her and asked people to leave Aguilera alone, but it was her own people who said she allegedly needed rehab, added that after her split from her hubby that she has been allegedly acting erratic and they were worried about her. Christina fired back by threatening to sue them, but these statements just help increase rumors about her being allegedly drunk during her National Anthem performance at the SB.
Just today TMZ released the video of Christina rehearsing the The Star-Spangled Banner and she totally nailed it, which is what was expected from her on Sunday, February 6th. Christina’s rehearsal video was so good that she was compared to the way Whitney Houston sang during the SB in 1991. Do you think that Christina should have practiced it more? Would that have prevented the incident that has now turned into a joke not just in the United States but worldwide?
X-Tina felt so bad that she released a statement about the incident at Cowboys Stadium:
“I got so lost 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.”
We are sure about that, these kinds of mistakes could happen to anyone. It’s too bad it happened to her during the NFL’s biggest show even while millions of people were watching, but we can always remember Aguilera’s rehearsal video for the Super Bowl, which you can see below.
